    Be very thoughtful and brief in what is said, some of it will get used by them.

    "While NYC may be the center of the universe it is not the entirety of it and making policy for the rest of the country based on that assumption is not reasonable. Your particular needs in a city of over eight million (the most populous in the U.S. by a large margin) are not the same as a nation of 314 million. When President Obama's FBI reports that violent crime has fallen 15% over the past five years alone and is now half of the high in the past 40 years it seem incongruous that people would be demanding national policy to remove things instead of dealing with the root cause behind the miserable souls that capture the headlines with heinous acts. Perhaps NY should rather look to spreading cause of the city's success in driving the violent crime rate to one of the lowest in the nation and well below Chicago's, one of the highest? It is ironic that the city the President considers home is also one of the most conservative in banning firearms yet is one of the most deadly in the country, but then he acknowledged in the debates that so-called assault weapons aren't the cause of the bloodshed in Chicago. Why ignore the facts and impose the wrong solution on the nation?"
