JUST IN: NYC Mayor Vows ‘Door to Door’ Checks on Residents with LEGAL GUN PERMITS

New York City Mayor Eric Adams vowed to implement “old-fashioned policing” techniques as a statewide law on guns went into effect Thursday; saying members of the NYPD will go door-to-door to check on those with legal firearms.

“It is really about using the good, old-fashioned methods of doing investigation,” Adams said in an interview on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe” Thursday morning.

“When I became a police officer, people knocked on my neighbor’s doors and interviewed them and asked what type of person am I.”

“And I think those are the same skills that’s going to be used to look at not only social media but also knocking our neighbors’ doors, speaking to people, finding out who this individual is that we are about to allow to carry a firearm in our city,” said Adams.
