As reported in the April 3 Grassroots Alert, Richard Aborn, former president of Handgun Control, Inc. (now Brady Center) is running for Manhattan District Attorney.   A story in the May 5 issue of The New York Times, notes that Aborn recently unveiled a five-point plan for combating gun violence in the city.  Not surprisingly, it is laden with gun control provisions. 

Aborn's plan calls for  "regional interdiction approach to gun trafficking; more gun buyback programs and a program in which parents could give the police permission to search homes for guns; a requirement that pistols sold in New York include micro-stamping technology; a five-year renewal process for handgun permits; and support for a national gun-control strategy."
