The first firearms law in NY State, the 1911 Sullivan Law, was undeniably and directly for the purpose of assisting organized crime.
The mafia couldn't shakedown armed immigrants so they got their buddy Timothy Sullivan (a notoriously corrupt politician, even in already notoriously corrupt Tammany Hall) to make a bill that would disarm anyone except criminals.

It worked then and it works now.
