NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly speaks out about handguns
NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly said ont CBS's "Face The Nation" Sunday that the real issue in gun control is handguns, which are used in 60% of murders in New York City.
Kelly said he would support an assault weapon ban, but those guns only account for 2% weapon possession arrests in the city.
On assault weapon ban, Kelly said:
"For us in New York City, the problem really is concealable handguns. We simply have too many of them (hand guns), even though we had a record low in shootings in New York City last year, it's still way too many."
On gun control infringing on citizen's rights:
"The concept of people having a right to guns with some legitimate regulations is here to stay. We're not looking to infringe on anyone's rights to have a gun legally. We're looking to get the illegal guns off our streets."
