Does any of this really surprise anyone?

Nope. Having lived (briefly) in NYC I saw the impact of disarming citizens. Many were clearly afraid while on the street, especially after dark and away from crowds. The gouls had free-reign and were openly aggressive "panhandling" which is street-level "protection" and intimidation, if you will.

You have two options: arm yourself (anyway) and go where you want or give the streets over to the thugs. Your choice.

There is a third option. Live in a building with multiple layers of security, have your driver bring the car around at your convienience and have bodyguards when you go out at night.
Oh, wait....
