um....why should I care if the police have a scanner that can detect guns?most folks in NYC don't have handgun carry permits, so chances are if they detect you have a gun..its illegal.
What about the constitutional issue? What are we, guilty until proven innocent?

what Constitutional issue? no one is being patted down, detained, stopped. why do you want criminals to walk the streets of NYC, armed to kill?

I see, huh weird, looking under ones clothes using an xray machine is OK because strip searches are not pat downs.

Wrong pal. It is against the 4th at least, I think I could make an argument that is also violates the 5th.

I see, now it is 'I want criminals to walk down the streets armed', you think this will stop them then you probably think the war on drugs eradicated drugs from the streets.

Hey, I live in NYC. Its my damn city. If the police find a new tool to keep our city safer, good for them. Maybe this new technology will make criminals keep their guns at home. All these civil-liberties Jihadists are really just Useful Idiots for the criminals.

New York Crime Rates 1960 - 2010

Really I guess if you are not one of the 28K robbed, or one of the 866 murder victims, or one of the 75 thousand violent crime victims you might see it that way.
