The two faces of NY are strong in this young woman. She's obviously not from NYcity (accent), likely from one of about 5 or 6 other semi citizen gun free zones in upstate like Ithaca, Saratoga or Albany. All of those little zones are surrounded by hunters and guns but most of the inhabitants spend more time in the few cities like NYC than 30 miles outside of their island paradises.
That illuminates the actual roots of most gun control have, cultural meccas, small areas with larger populations. She was used to seeing Police with guns but not citizens carrying, I experienced just the opposite in my youth in the same state. We had and have very few police, almost never saw them out of their cars but I saw lots of citizens with guns!
Another young woman I would be proud to call my daughter, (my guess is her parents may be a bit concerned now, quickly, call an exorcist!!!!).
