Members of law enforcement, in my experience, tend to good people trying to make their communities even better places to live. Going along with it, the current and former members of law enforcement that I know also all support legal gun ownership.
That’s the majority of law enforcement officers in America.
But there are a few others out there, cut from the David Chipman model mold. They were members of law enforcement, but they have absolutely no regard for the Constitution that they swore to uphold (you can rea”d more about Chipman here, here, and here).
Sadly, for the people of one major city in America, their mayor, who is a former police officer, may be even worse than Chipman when it comes to gun rights in that city. A writer going by AnnieOakley writes,
Criminals have been carrying guns in New York since the city was founded hundreds of years ago. No modern piece of Democratic legislation has ever stopped them. They simply walk in, shoot and kill as they please, and then try to get away before the beleaguered police department shows up.
But [New York City mayor] Eric Adams is smarter than those criminals and the God-given, Constitutionally enshrined right to self defense by keeping and bearing arms.
To that end, he’s vowing to send bureaucrats to knock on the doors of people seeking to obtain a carry permit, as well as their neighbor’s doors, so that the whole community can shame and harass them for wanting to protect life and property from criminals.
Adams even had the gall to actually say, “Having a gun is not a way to keep a city safe.”
If you look at the gun crime rates in major cities, especially the way that New York City’s crime rate has skyrocketed over the last couple of years, you can’t help but come to the conclusion that banning legal gun ownership obviously isn’t working, so, someone living in New York City needs to ask Mayor Adams, “Why do you think that doing more of the same is going to give us better results?”
We all know the reality, though. More of the same gun control won’t make that city safer. It never does.
Teach NYC a lesson and have 2 or 3 million people apply for carry permits. Re New York state new law about stopping legal gunners if it is suspected, they are carrying a gun seems really asinine of that name that women don’t like to be called person since NYC ended the stop and frisk of CRIMINALS.
Back to SCOTUS, we go about the definition of special places.
The mayor of NY needs to get his head out of his ——- and let the people of NY defend themselves as you don’t have enough police officers to get rid of the slimy people who are doing the crimes
NYC is a sh*t hole that you couldn’t PAY me to live in. I went there one time driving truck and refused to ever go back. Told them their truck might go back to NYC but I wouldn’t be driving it. If you like it you can have it and good riddance.
Which city is safer because of gun control?
” The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes…. Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; They serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.” Thomas Jefferson
The FACTS could not be conveyed ANY clearer about legal gun ownership and the wishfull thinking of the N.Y. Mayor. How about forwarding article and comments to Mayor?. I am afraid if he is already NOT Supporting and Defending the Constitution of the U. S. As he swore to do in 2 jobs (Police Officer AND Mayor) there may be nothing to do but get another Mayor!
