yo, you called me a dimwit because I asked you for a link.
I provided a link for your reference, you could not execute on that
(you thought it was merely a cover page)
who's the real DW? how about an admission of your error?
Last time I looked crime went down 25% in the 2 years following Heller.
As to NYC, there are a LOT of factors involved with crime, gun ownership is
