My natural default is to by suspicious of any policy endorsed by your gun-hating, nanny state mayor.
NYC could tighten the rules but then they would loose those arrests due to officers not being able to conduct Terry stops.

Don't like Terry stops? Find a place that doesn't do them.

Good luck with that. Even SF does them. Berkeley might not.
