Does taking guns away from off-duty police make areas safer?

Last week there was a widely covered shooting at the New York City Hall in which a city councilman was killed. The response by Mayor Bloomberg has been to ban off-duty or retired police from being able to carry concealed handguns around city hall. An op-ed piece that I have in yesterday’s New York Post questions whether that the policy. One wonders if it is so hard for gun controllers to even trust off-duty police officers carrying guns, do they also want to disarm on-duty police? How is it possible to trust an officer while he is on-duty but not five minutes after he is off-duty.

A new review of my book is out. The review writes:

"A new standard has been painstakingly and professionally assembled that shoots holes in the gun control myth using easily understood tables, charts, graphs and statistics."
