From the NY Post:
Murders in the “forgotten” borough have surged 129% so far this year over last year, to 16 from seven.
Major crimes are up in every category and 17% overall, according to NYPD data through Sept. 10.
“This year’s increase in crime on Staten Island is wholly unacceptable,” District Attorney Michael McMahon told The Post, noting his office “has work to do” because of “misguided and harmful policies visited upon us by outside forces.”
Some of the murders and robberies are fueled by street gangs, mostly on the North Shore, said one recently retired veteran detective.
“These guys are just out there trying to make a name for themselves,” the detective said, adding, “They walk around with guns and there’s no stop and frisk anymore.”
Maybe letting New Yorkers defend themselves would change this.
Bruen was delivered to make that possible and New York responded with a legislative hissy fit that was even more restrictive than the pre-Bruen regulations.
And all they have to show for it is more violence and murder.
The Supreme Court should come back and smack these Blue state laws that try and do a end run around Bruen down so the good people of New York can actually defend themselves.
