Just Going Through The motions...

See me sign. Watch me sign with gusto. Watch this legislation do nothing. Run, Mayor, run! But seriously, can someone explain how, under any circumstances, this is going to prevent anything?

Mayor Signs Stricter Gun Control Legislation
JANUARY 19TH, 2005

Mayor Michael Bloomberg signed four new gun-control measures into law on Tuesday. The new laws make it harder for teenagers and criminals to get into the hands on assault rifles and increase the penalties for weapons violations.

The provisions include increasing fines from $10,000 to $25,000; raising the minimum age to apply for an assault weapon from 18 to 21; and increasing the liability for gun manufacturers for death or injury caused by their weapons. The legislation also limits people to buying one rifle or shotgun in the city every 90 days.
