It was called the "New York City Rally for Illegal Guns," because Leobold says Bloomberg's campaign to target "illegal" guns actually has been going a little bit beyond what it should. Requirements to register or license a gun, such as New York seeks, implies that those that are unregistered are "illegal."
But Leobold said Bloomberg is working with "elistists" to erode the city's rights to self-defense and privacy by pursuing crackdowns on dealers and gun sales. Those who have guns frequently don't want the government to know about it, any more than they want their neighbors or local criminals to know.
