There are people running around with guns in our city. Maybe it’s time for us to bring in the NYC law where police are allowed to do ‘Stop-and- Frisk’ which is very controversial, but needed to stop these hooligans from walking our streets with loaded guns.
Even if one gun is found, it is worth it to save our citizens. The NYC law allows any police officer to stop anyone and search them for any reason, to see if they are carrying a gun.
