New York City recently celebrated a week free of murders, abruptly ended by murder.
But if Bloomberg’s gun free city is so great why are there any murders?
Funny thing about that. Somehow, even with a de facto ban on guns criminals STILL use them to kill. Another funny thing, despite what Bloomberg prattles on about, you can kill people with things OTHER than guns.
There have been 256 murders thus far this year in the city. Of those only 148 were committed by firearms. That means 108 people were murdered by something OTHER than a firearm.
With all the gun hating prognosticators using fear tactics to demonize firearms you would think that without firearm’s forcing people to do evil their would be NO crime without a firearm.
While the NYPD and Bloomberg were patting themselves on the back because they had one week without a murder I took a look at the week before.
From September 30th to October 6th:
- 11 murders
- 28 rapes
- 427 robberies
- 341 burglaries
- 938 Grand Larceny
- 160 GL Auto
- 935 Assaults
- 29 Shooting victims
- 22 Shooting incidents
So even without murders there are still law abiding citizens of New York City that are being rapped and beaten and robbed that have no defense against those who are more powerful or outnumber them. While murders took a fluke holiday last week crime and the production of victims thanks to the disarmament of the law abiding continued.
What’s not a fluke is that the criminals who committed these crimes rest safely knowing that they can continue on doing so without fear that their victims will be able to stop them.
Let Mayor Bloomberg hang his hat on that.
