Bloomberg’s mission ‘to reduce gun violence’ accomplished.
If the MA man fought back the gang of seven in self defense with a proper firearm, it won’t even make the news.
Of course it would have made the news: he'd have been arrested for violating New York or NYC's gun laws, portrayed in the same way George Zimmerman was in Florida, and held up as an example of why we need more anti-gun legislation.
As it is, note that this didn't make "the news": we're having to read about it via the British press, as is the case with every event that doesn't fit into the left's latest propaganda campaign. Assault with tire irons and baseball bats? Bury it. It doesn't support a gun ban, and might make folks want firearms with which to defend themselves.
