New York City: DA canditate reveals anti-gun platform
The plan calls for a regional interdiction approach to gun trafficking; more gun buyback programs and a program in which parents could give the police permission to search homes for guns; a requirement that pistols sold in New York include micro-stamping technology; a five-year renewal process for handgun permits; and support for a national gun-control strategy.

So where is the problem? I don't see kitchen knives and baseball bats needing registration, yet they are responsible for nearly 1/2 the homicides, yet we go after firearms. Why?
