Bronx politician pushes for gun-crime registry

A Bronx politician is pushing for a registry that would track criminals much as the state’s sex offender registry tracks offenders.

Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr., made the suggestion in his State of the Borough address yesterday.

“Law-abiding citizens ought to know who among us is responsible for gun violence,” Diaz said.

He proposed an online registry featuring criminals convicted of crimes involving a gun. They would have to update the police about where they live and work and stay on the registry for 10 years.

1. That's stupid

someone who knocks over a gas station when he is young and out of work is marked for life but someone who maims six people with a knife isn't.
Who does more social damage, the guy rips off a gas station with a pistol or the bankster who rips off hundreds of people with a pen?

5. statute of lims

Johnston: That's stupid .. someone who knocks over a gas station when he is young and out of work is marked for life but someone who maims six people with a knife isn't.

Calm down johnston, try to stop hyperventilating & reread the OP;
OR, just reread my helpful friendly excerpt below!:

He proposed an online registry featuring criminals convicted of crimes involving a gun. They would have to update the police about where they live and work and stay on the registry for 10 years.

The knifist would be 'marked' the same way as the gunner, as long as bona fide convictions.

6. he the knifist would not have to register

the gas station robber, if he used a pistol, would. OK, so his "marking" would be disproportionate to the crime for ten years. Still stupid.

3. I'd rather see violent crimes.

 

I'd also like to see the number of years since the crime happened, and whether they are a repeat offender.

7. Because the Sex Offender Registry has been so effective?

8. Why not a violent crime registry?

 

Violence is violence, knives, fists, guns or nuclear bombs.
