Washington, Jan. 2 (ANI): Nine people have been shot in the New York City since the city welcomed in 2013, police said. Gunfire first erupted at around 2 a.m., when two people were hit with bullets in separate incidents.

In the first shooting, a 32-year-old man was hit in the stomach and taken to Jacobi Hospital, cops said. He is in stable condition.

1. Most American guns are manufactured in New England...hardly 'red' states.

8. So, that's the answer you give when you're factually wrong?

Sea below:
Firearms Manufacturers in the United States
(First number is for those companies still in business. Those in parenthesis are no longer in business.)

"Blue" States = 40 (17)
"Red" States = 34 (5)
Indeterminate = 8 (3)
Foreign = 2

("Indeterminate" means that the information provided wasn't clear on where their HQ was located, or I wasn't reasonably sure of the "red/blue" status of the state.)

I thought this was interesting, too:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_Jovino_Gun_Shop
John Jovino Gun Shop or the John Jovino Company is a firearms dealer and factory located at 183 Grand Street, in Little Italy in the New York City borough of Manhattan. It is the oldest gun retailer in New York City and claims to be the oldest gun shop in the United States.

By the numbers listed above, y'all have a rather large weapons manufacturing footprint in the northeastern states, yet you (or a small minority of y'all) don't seem to want to own that responsibility with regards to who gets the guns (re, your reference to it being the "fault" of "red" states.) Why is that, exactly?

5. Probable that all those guns were illegally in NYC

Possession of all those weapons is probably illegal in NYC. Shooting people is probably illegal there too. So much for strict laws preventing crimes.

9. Interesting now guns are Southern devices.

Normally it's just guns kill people, now it's Southern guns kill people.
