Part of NYPD’s Stop-and-Frisk Ruled Unconstitutional

Via New York Times:
An element of the New York Police Department’s stop-and-frisk practice was deemed unconstitutional by a federal judge on Tuesday, a ruling that may have broad implications for the city’s widespread use of police stops as a crime-fighting tactic. The decision, the first federal ruling to find that the practice under the Bloomberg administration violates the Fourth Amendment protection against unreasonable search and seizure, focused on police stops conducted in front of several thousand private residential buildings in the Bronx enrolled in the Trespass Affidavit Program. Property managers in that program have asked the police to patrol their buildings and to arrest trespassers. . .

You can pass all the gun laws you want, but unless you empower the police to actually arrest those with illegal guns, none of those gun laws will matter. This is why Chicago is a shooting gallery ever weekend and NYC is the safest big city in the world. Gun control advocates need to be honest and expand the debate and truly ask themselves if stop-and-frisk is saving lives -- like in NYC -- why shouldn't it be implemented in every high-crime, gun-death city in America? - Greg Pollowitz
