FILE - In this file photo of  July 26, 2012, New York Police Department Commissioner Raymond Kelly, left, and Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr., and other law enforcement officials leave a press conference where confiscated, illegal firearms were on display, in New York. While recent shootings at a Colorado movie theater, a Sikh temple and outside the Empire State Building have grabbed headlines, residents of inner-city neighborhoods wracked by gun violence say they feel neglected and ignored in this presidential election year- especially as a Democratic Party that used to push for gun control remains largely silent on the issue while Republicans launch a full-throated defense of gun ownership.
