Carrying or owning firearms without permit is a grave offense in the state of New York, but on the East Side guns are bootlegged as freely as hooch. Arthur Fellig, a photographer, tells me that while he was walking along Third Avenue the other night a gorilla approached him and asked him if he needed a gun, saying he would rent him one for a dollar [in June 1925 $1 had the same buying power as $16.70 in May 2022] a day.
