BEDFORD-STUYVESANT - New information from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention reveals New York City has a lower percentage of teens carrying guns than any other major city in the U.S.

Mayor Michael Bloomberg says only 2.3 percent of teens in New York City are carrying guns, which is around half the national average of 5.1 percent.

The study also shows that there were 96 fewer murder victims in 2012 than in 2011.

Bloomberg says he believes these numbers are partially the result of the NYPD's increased enforcement policies.
