“They always quote the Second Amendment rights. This Second Amendment was written in 1791 when you needed to have a gun. You had all the outlaws. But we don’t need the guns in the urban communities,” he said.
The killing of an innocent 12-year-old girl is a tragedy, but that Hempstead’s Mayor Wayne Hall would go as far as pimping her death for gun controls while spouting such a level of cognitive dissonance goes beyond the real, specially when apparently there is something fishy going on in that particular household.
From the same article:
“Authorities should have done something before this happened, because this has been going on for months now.”
Someone has shot at that house “four or five times in the last few months. The previous one was about five weeks ago, and before that it was one after another, just days in between,” Cruz said.
There is a lot more going on when a family has been targeted 5 times for drive-by shootings. But have no fear, Mayor Hall is a proud member of Mayors Against Illegal Guns/Everytown. They have all the answers..unfortunately they are the wrong ones. And it seems that the Village of Hempstead is having a wee bit of a crime issue, in fact it is twice the violent crime of New York City and has a murder rate more than four times the national average.
You would have thought that the NY Safe Act would have brought those statistics down to zero or a least under the national average, but appears it did not. Just like any other Gun Control measure.
I think I am going to introduce a new term for people like Mayor Hall: Corpse Pimps.
