It is blatantly obvious guns don't belong in cities. New York City has the lowest crime rate of any big city in US thanks to TOUGH and EFFECTIVE enforcement of gun laws. It would be even better if the rest of the country was like NYC. If NYC said, f' it let's just let anyone carry a gun it would drown in crime. The problem with the gun control debate is that yahoos living in rural and suburban areas judge gun crime trends based on their superficial existence. Nobody is going to care about your wheat farm and gangs would not congregate there either. If you live in a well off suburb and carry laws don't seem to make a hell hole out of it it is not because of guns, it is because the people living in your neighborhood are not cut out to rob banks and police manage to keep outsiders at bay. Gangs and organized crime prefer urban settings for a variety of obvious reasons. Much higher population density and economic density. Whether it is kidnapping, bank robbery, burglary, extortion, loan sharking, prostitution, drug sales, you name it, it is ALWAYS better to do it in a city. There are no drive bys to be had on wheat farms. It is because of gangs and organized crime in urban settings that there should be uniform gun control laws across the whole country.
