Protecting themselves with the legal -- I had -- don't go to his.
With the journal is really did was create a potentially harmful situation what you have is a blueprint for criminals -- They know who had the gun they could potentially go there still -- -- Well Adam Shapiro Syria and we're told -- the break and criminals don't.
Read write web sites do they can -- -- take a step back and a collective.
The side of deep breath because violent crime in this country is down over the last twenty years the majority people whether they have a -- or not are not.
Thinking about how my going to go do harm to somebody.
What the paper did I don't think it passes the smell test a lot of people would have been on comparable.
We -- with publishing that kind of information.
But this idea that there are armies of bad guys out there.
Waiting for ha I'm going to go get you not buying that I don't -- the president -- also -- about life is better and.
I'm gonna have to respectfully disagree in New York State 80% of our hand gun crimes are committed with illegal handgun through -- stolen or crossing state lines.
-- in Westchester County we have two large cities Yonkers and not Mount Vernon which have almost one how -- -- not.
I don't they currently -- Of those eighty -- OK but of those 80% of people with a legal handguns where they intending in plotting who they were going to go to attack over those -- on the street what kind what was the kind of crime that took place its its various array of different.
Crime but now what we have is -- as we all out tends to change with technology.
-- I'm gonna break impresario and stay right that got more questions but I just want to give you this breaking news everybody is from the Environmental Protection Agency the administrative that Lisa Jackson she says she's gonna step down she's been on the job for nearly four years she says she's gonna step down.

Now we've got this list published in the news right.
Everybody knows web illegal handguns are in each house my name -- the address of the person who's -- But but it -- this in -- Connecticut's.
We had a a dreadful case of legally owned handguns.
Used in a terrible way -- someone who was clearly mentally unstable.
Wouldn't the publishing of this list out people who have a handgun in the house and who may also -- some.
Unstable -- in the same house with access to that legal gone I don't neighbors have a right to know who those people off who may be a threat.
I can agree with that statement however they only published handgun -- they don't have long -- -- so.
On my street I'm the only one but I don't know if my neighbor two houses -- -- the -- -- because that's not on the list so the reason for.
Letting people know whether gun is ridiculous because -- are not doing that they only let people know worth and and they said they did it for a public so instrument.
Yes that that's their reason for doing -- okay what are you gonna do about.
While I'm working with state leaders and trying to enact a law to try to stop this kind of nonsense.
When you -- for oil for this kind of an on the biggest proponent of open government that there -- and transparency I.
Foil for information request.
Before -- elected all the time.
-- however when you.
Can create a potentially harmful situation where either someone can get rob a retired police -- or judge can get killed which -- happened before in Westchester County.
Your -- your credit situation needs of the 11 last Olimpia is this not public information anyway it is public now by its -- -- are working to change that but that and the -- the government knows who's got the registration for the -- yes.
So -- -- follow Freedom of Information Act.
A proposal I can get -- you can get the information for you cannot have the information the rightful owners okay.
But give -- -- what you're advocating then is what you want is the government's -- but nobody else to know I think a lot of people who own guns might be a little fearful of the government only having that information I mean.
There are people who want there there firearms.
Because they don't trust this government.
Book -- I'm I'm sorry I'm -- -- tell everybody but the would you come back and tell us how things have progressed I would love having this problem definitely been a trip out.
