OK, I don't think it's racist, but if some community leaders view it they may very well take that position. Rightly or wrongly insurance in minority community's tends to be higher, if available at all. In regards to having a gun some people living in high crime areas that may really need a gun may be prohibited because of this legislation. If I lived in NY, I'd send emails to all minority leaders pointing this out. It might be helpful to have some opposition from the left fighting this. Just a thought.
