    Correlation does not equal causation.

    To simply own a revolver legally you have to wait up to 6 months and pay $600 or so in fees.

    You have to apply for a license, and you have to show "need" to get one. The city seldom grants them.

    need if for CCW, and that process is longer and even more expensive. for keeping it at home you don't have to show need.

    I think you do in New York City. Here's a link that explains the application process. Note: there is an interview where they ask you why you "need" to have a handgun. Permits are issued at the city's discretion.

    i've seen the article before. The difference is that for a home permit they will accept the home defense answer.

    For a CCW just saying you want to protect yourself would be rejected.

    Although the current case coming before the Supreme Court may change that.

    I can see why they want to keep their crime down.

    That has nothing to do with the crime rate. Broken windows policing is what brought it down, something DiBlasio wants to end.

    Interesting claim. Fact is they are doing much better than places with lots of concealed carry. The claim of that lowering crime seems to be proven wrong again.
