A plea for commonsense local gun regulation

It would be easy to dismiss this little video as just more political propaganda, but it is extraordinarily heartfelt.

Mayor Cory Booker of Newark has devoted his tenure to the staggeringly difficult task of ending his city's too well-earned reputation as the homicide capital of gritty east coast cities. He has made progress. Now gun enthusiasts want to circumvent local regulations that prevent carrying concealed weapons by forcing cities to honor permits from other states. Booker begs for commonsense.

Take a look.
