Gunman opens fire on a crowded New York City street

A suspected gunman who opened fire in broad daylight on a street in New York City last week is being sought by police. The NYPD released surveillance video showing the suspect firing what appears to be a revolver at a crowd walking on a sidewalk in the Bronx. There were no injuries reported from the shooting. The gunman had been targeting a 19-year-old man.

There must be a mistake in this story, New York City has very strict gun control laws, it's nearly impossible to get a permit.

The violent crime isn't a result of the gun laws, if you look at New York in the early 1900's that should be obvious. It's a violent city because of the amount of poverty there, gun laws help slightly but won't stop the illegal gun trade or people going out of the city/state buying them then coming back. The only way to stop that would be to have a licencing system in every state similar to how you get a drivers license, with a mental health assessment and a registry program. But before you do all that you need to kneecap the arms industry as a whole by stopping government funding of those arms manufacturers and limiting what they can produce and sell. If they are just going to produce more guns doing buybacks won't help much, you need to get at the root of the problem. Cops showing up to the scene of a shooting aren't going to distinguish between the good guy with a gun and the bad guy with a gun, they are going to see dead people everywhere and shoot whoever is in civilian clothing holding a gun. Cops in the US shoot people holding no weapons and fully complying with orders constantly. There is a video of an innocent guy on his knees crying and begging for his life, who just happened to be at a shooting, with his hands up following rediculious orders, saying "hands up, hands down" over and over for like a minute. Then shooting him when he was slightly delayed in the order. Do you really think they won't shoot the good guy because he has a permit in his pocket?
