New York In Shock As Gun Control Leads To 25 Murders In The Last 2 Days

AUTHOR

Like most Democrat-controlled, big cities, New York City has one of the most stringent gun-control schemes in America. But this heavy emphasis on banning guns has not stopped a recent rise in murders in the Big Apple.

Over a 48 hour period between June 11 to June 13 25 people were killed with firearms in New York. Victims were from all over the city. In fact, the only part of the city that didn’t experience a shooting over the 48-hour period was Staten Island!

Eight were shot in the Bronx, four in Queens, one in Manhattan, and a whopping twelve in Brooklyn. The fellow killed in Manhattan was shot during the day amongst a crowd of people.

But notice that New York’s “Safe Gun Act” hasn’t really done much to stop crimes committed with guns. It may have stopped law-abiding citizens from being able to respond to life-threatening attacks with their own guns, of course.

Due to the anti-gun laws, it is practically impossible for law-abiding citizens to get guns for themselves. But, oh, boy do the crooks have them. According to news reports 100 percent of this gun crime spree was perpetrated with guns held illegally in criminal hands.

Notice that hundreds in not thousands of crimes every year are stopped by legal gun owners. Take the woman in California that stopped a home invasion with her firearm. Or the Florida business owner who cornered and captured a crook in his store. Or the boy that used a gun to save his father’s life.

These are the life-saving events that New York’s Democrats will put an end to and murders will increase because of it.

With Democrats succeeding in banning guns we get idiotic and dangerous situations like the 9/11 operator that told a woman being raped to kindly ask her rapist to just leave.

The good news is, though, that this is still a drop in murder rates over last year. This is true across the country, actually. And every state (including New York) no have concealed carry in some form or fashion–except Illinois which is just about to put one in place. We have more guns than ever in the hands of law-abiding citizens and crime has dropped.

Ex Obama Secret Service Exposes Gun Control Agenda – War Against Personal Liberty

general population doesn't know that it doesn't know

Former Obama Secret Service agent Dan Bongino,  actually left his career to inform the public on the reality behind the gun control debate and campaign for office.

By Anthony Gucciardi
Story Leak
June 2, 2013

You may know Bongino from his inspiring speech on the subject of how gun control is really not centered around the control of guns, but in fact the control of the individuals who own and carry them. Quite simply, ‘gun control’ is really about people control. A reality that very few talking heads within the gun debate who push for gun control truly understand (or are willing to admit).

Sociopathic control freaks inside government, many of which Bongino is certainly familiar with working deep within Secret Service for Obama, are simply utilizing gun control legislation and regulation to exercise yet more control over the individual with the ultimate goal of eroding the very checks and balances provided by the Constitution and the Bill of Rights at large. But why?

Well, without the rights legally granted by the Constitution, which are actually being illegally bypassed through legislation like the Patriot Act and the NDAA (two pieces of legislation that Obama has signed off on despite voicing opposition to Bush-era creations like the Patriot Act), then bloated government can do virtually anything it pleases. And those at the top of this bloated government system would ultimately stand to gain. We see this throughout history as certain forms of ‘equal’ government are pushed by those at the top who in fact hog the resources for themselves under the guise of government duty and use phony patriotism (or worse) to silence the opposition.

Second Amendment’s Demise Signifies Constitution Collapse

Today, legislation is being written that ignores the Constitution. From gun control and spy bills to internet censorship and tax hikes that fund the mega bankers, we are seeing the Constitution thrown into the fire over and over. But if we truly lose the Second Amendment through a major gun ban, or perhaps the Supreme Court decides it is ‘outdated’, then we are truly setting ourselves up to lose the entire Bill of Rights at large. And until we understand this, the ‘gun debate’ will rage on.

Like Dan, I was never really into firearms until I realized the importance of the Second Amendment when it comes to our rights granted by God and the Constitution. At the end of the day, it’s not really even about the firearm to a large extent.

Mayhem in the New York: 25 people shot in 48 hours

Gun Regulation Doesn’t Seem To Be Working

BY AND / NEW YORK DAILY NEWS

Cops check the scene of a deadly gun battle at Bedford Ave. and Lenox Road in Brooklyn on Sunday.

Violence surged like the mercury Sunday, with three more fatalities from gun violence — and eight others wounded in shootings — bringing the total number of bullet-riddled in the city to 25 in less than 48 hours.

Only Staten Island was safe from the wide-ranging spray of gunfire and sickening weekend bloodshed. At least 12 people were blasted in Brooklyn, eight in the Bronx and another four in Queens. The sole person shot in Manhattan took several slugs to the chest and perished in broad daylight.

Sunday’s first fatality was Ivan Martinez, 21, who was approached around 3:25 a.m. by a 20-year-old gunman and a woman at E. 139th St. near Brook Ave. in the Bronx, police said.

The gunman shot Martinez once in the head and ran off with the woman.

Paramedics transport one of three men shot near at the intersection of Bedford and Flatbush avenues in Brooklyn.

In the second fatal attack, a man in his 40s was gunned down during an argument in East Harlem around 1:20 p.m. The victim, who has not been identified by police, was blasted multiple times in the torso on E. 105th St. near First Ave. Less than four hours later, Damien Powell, 25, was killed after he was shot in the chest outside the Albany Houses in Crown Heights, sources and witnesses said. The victim’s mother collapsed at the scene, where shell casings littered the street, witnesses said.

Tayloni Mazyck, 11, was paralyzed by a stray bullet Friday night outside her Bedford-Stuyvesant apartment building.

Three men were wounded in the wild Brooklyn shooting that left terrified bystanders ducking for cover.

“I heard maybe 20 shots,” said Guy Pierre Louis, 50, who lives on Lenox Road. “I thought it was like the Fourth of July.”

Cops are now hunting for the alleged gunman, Kevon Brown, 30, who also shot at a pair of officers during the melee, police said. He’s described as 5-foot-10, 185 pounds.

Detectives question witnesses as they try to gather clues and answers on the mass bloodshed.

Sunday’s carnage followed the shooting of 14 people — three of whom died — in a terrifying 26 hours that began Friday night. A total of six people were killed during the grim weekend.

The two days of bloodshed represented 5% of this year’s roughly 440 shootings. Despite the violence, that figure represents a 23% drop compared with the 574 victims shot through this time last year.

Friday night’s incidents were bookended by tragedy and a miracle.

Tayloni (Tutu) Mazyck, 11, was shot outside her Bedford-Stuyvesant home when a cold-hearted teen opened fire at rival gang members. The slug traveled through her neck and lodged in her spine.

Police commissioner Ray Kelly will have his hands full trying to piece together the rash of shootings.

On Saturday night, a heroic 15-year-old girl in the Bronx dodged death and was shot in the leg as she pushed a toddler in a baby carriage to safety.

Cops are now hunting for one alleged gunman, Kevon Brown, 30, who shot at a pair of officers during the a Brooklyn melee.

“Everybody started running, so I went to grab the carriage,” Sarah Rivera told the Daily News from Lincoln Hospital on Sunday. “As I pushed it, the bullet hit me.”

Other shooting victims on Saturday were less fortunate.

Terrance Davis, 24, of the Bronx was killed after he was shot multiple times Friday night on W. Burnside Ave., and Antonio Wilson, 23, was fatally blasted in Clinton Hill, Brooklyn. Meanwhile, 39-year-old Damion Riley was shot twice and died on E. 48th St. in East Flatbush.
