Seriously?!? Banning rifles is good, even though fewer than 2% of firearms taken are rifles? Too many handguns, even though they're still illegal for the unconnected in NYC? How does he know how many guns are sold without background checks when those purchases are done without checks? (Does he know how many illegal 16oz sodas were sold, too?) Gun scanners for "illegal" guns? Who the hell has "legal" guns in NYC? He is CLEARLY looking to infringe on people he doesn't approve of.

If nothing else, I think this interview should give everyone a pretty good idea that the hard core gun control advocates have no intention of stopping with assault weapons or high capacity magazines. The admit that "assault weapons" account for a tiny minority of gun crimes but they are going after them now because that's what they think they can get. If/when they get those banned they will set their sights on the next target, whether that's semi-auto pistols or other types of rifles or shotguns, etc. These people will not be happy until ALL firearms are taken out of the hands of law abiding citizens and only the government (and of course criminals) have them.
