Guns don't kill people? Then perhaps it's time for refund, because unless we're talking paint ball...
People with guns kill people, and far more effective volume, precision, and a distance-wise than with knives, garrotes, gasoline, smoke fumes, carbon monoxide, drowning, said paint balls and just about everything else other than bombs - which, though arms, are 'curiously' even more difficult to acquire and thus use. Automobiles can kill many, but precision can be lacking, a well as other impediments.
There is still crime in NYC - some slums aren't as reflective of the overall trend, this is still THE crime syndicate capital of America with mobs from all over the world, as well as the usual murders of passion, etc. But gun control has turned NYC into the safest big city in America.
People on BOTH fake sides of the bot argument focus solely on Chicago because otherwise the debate is concluded 1,2,3 with a simple N - Y - C.
