Gun Control is For Little People

Reagan Stevens, a deputy director in the Mayor’s Office of Criminal Justice, and two young men were arrested for illegal weapons possession while sitting in a double-parked car near the scene of a Saturday night shooting in Queens, cops said.
A loaded, 9mm semi-automatic pistol with its serial number defaced was hidden in the car’s glovebox, and there was a spent shell casing on the floor near Stevens’ feet in the rear of the 2002 dark red Infiniti SUV, law enforcement sources said.
The trio’s arrest followed a burst of five gunshots that activated an NYPD “ShotSpotter” device in Jamaica at 9:42 p.m. Saturday, sources said.
The listening device pinpointed the shooting at 174th Street and 109th Avenue, and private surveillance video captured the muzzle flashes of five shots fired from the Infiniti, sources said.
The handgun seized by cops has an eight-round magazine and held three cartridges — two in the magazine and one in the chamber, sources said.
Five shots fired; three left in an 8 round magazine; sound and video evidence.  No wonder de Blasio supports gun control.  His own staff can't be trusted.  But that doesn't mean every other New Yorker is as stupid and criminal as his staff.  A lot of gun control agitation is what psychologists call "projection":
humans defend themselves against their own unconscious impulses or qualities (both positive and negative) by denying their existence in themselves while attributing them to others.

The comments over at Instapundit are marvelous:
Is this a Common Core Urban Word Math problem?
Reagan has a gun with an eight round magazine. If she capped somebody's ass with five rounds, how many rounds does Reagan have left to shoot some other MoFo?

And since her mother Deborah Stevens Modic is a city-court judge, they are having trouble finding a prosecutor willing to continue the prosecution.
