As the Daily News announces, Councilman Dan Garodnick to introduce bill requiring city to post signs about unlicensed gun possession. “’We want to make a statement here. Between 85% and 90% of guns used in crimes come from out of state,’ Garodnick (D-Manhattan) said. ‘It will be helpful … to send the message that New York City will take action against you for having an illegal firearm.’” Only in the mind of an East Side Manhattan pol would posting signs at the city limits actually deter criminals from importing their guns. “The ignorance of the law can be no defense here,” Councilman Garodnick intoned. He’s right. Even the usual level of ignorance common among New York City Council members is no excuse for this kind of grandstanding stupidity.
