City shot to hell: Gun victims soar 46% for 1-week period
New York Post ^ | July 3, 2012 | LARRY CELONA, JAMIE SCHRAM and DAN MACLEOD

It’s heating up out there.

The number of people shot in the city last week jumped nearly 50 percent compared with the same period last year — and a deadly mix of hotter temperatures and fewer stop-and-frisks is to blame, cops said yesterday.

Sixty people were shot in the five boroughs last week — a 46 percent increase over last year’s 41 victims, police said.

And that could just be the beginning, warned one law-enforcement source.

But I thought NY has strict gun laws. Perhaps that’s the problem.

Obviously, what they need there is stricter gun control!

In Chicago the militantly stupid police chief blames whites for the non-stop violence in the “vibrant” neighborhoods. And all the navel gazing CONservatives who are paid hacks just sit there and grin when a PC commisar goes about blame shifting. They all deserve the George Will Award for best sidekick.

Perhaps but according to one comment on the board “racist right-wingers” add to the problems.

We had a shootout here in Indy last night between two female gangs.

1 dead, 5 more wounded.

And it was in a neighborhood at least a few miles from the “hood”

Remember when the primary competition between New York and Chicago was the Giants and the Bears?

Now it’s shooting incidents per capita.

Dems also love to pack people tight into dense cities - then excuse criminal behavior... everything dems think is wrong...

it's simple..

take ONE area, give everyone there free training and free weapon

see how much crime there is in that neighborhood compared to all others

THEN we'll know once and for all if gun control reduces crime or if the neighborhood where everyone has a gun is safer

New York hates to be outranked by Chicago in any category so they are just playing catch up.

Gun control only take guns from white folks. It sure seems to fail when it comes to any other group.

This is a lie. Gun Control works every time it is tried! Think how bad it would be, though, if there were guns on the streets...God bless New York, a land of orange skies and peppermint slurpies, all of a very small size and sugar free.

Gun-control laws are racist.

http://www.gunlaws.com/GunshotDemographics.htm

The implication inherent in all of such stories is the one race overwhelmingly involved in such incidents is so stupid, immature, unable to control themselves in a civilized manner that they need government to take firearms away for their own good.

NYC, Baltimore, Chicago, LA, San Francisco can ALL be shot to hell for all I care. They have taken the natural rights of their citizens to defend themselves, and they have encouraged blacks to become feral thugs. A pox on them all.

Gun control is a steady hand and a beady eye.

According to Ector, the time has arrived for city of Detroit to break ties with the racist roots of gun control. Ector stated, “Gun laws have always been most strict in cities with large numbers of black people. Detroit is no different in that regard. In 1925, Dr. Ossian Sweet was acquitted of defending his home from a mob of people who were upset with the gall of a black man who dared to integrate a white neighborhood.”

Ector, was referring to the Michigan court case which many have credited as being the genesis of the 1927 Michigan Firearms Act. This law created County Gun Boards, required the licensing of handguns, and made acquiring Concealed Pistol Licenses (CPLs) and handguns difficult for most black people.

Upstate NY is no different. I live on a high traffic street in Rochester. The ambulance and patrol cars fly by 24x7. 0bama’s sons (Holder’s yoots) + 90 degrees is a recipe for someone to get shot. I hear shootings here are up 65% from the same ytd as last year.

Yep those evil killing Georges's were shooting and killing innocent ferals:

The photo below is a picture of the dangerous weapon Jorge Zimmerman, his head used to attack the innocent feral with.

So...since the city’s Black offspring can not behave like civilized human beings, don’t let anyone under 18 into the pool without a parent accompaning them. One screw up with the parents present, the whole family gets banned from access to the pool.

I always ask liberal gun-gun-grabbing acquaintances, “How many of these shootings involved shooters or hunters who own multiple firearms?”

They tell me I’m racist (Chinese descent) and off-topic. Typical jackwagon response.

If we would just put more money into community centers to keep the youth occupied in the summers, this would not happen. (/s)

Comparing one week with the same week the prior year is statistical idiocy.

IIRC, Chicago is 1/3 the population ,but has 3 times as many gang members.

see what happens when you lose your community organizer?

41/60 = 32% Increase

But let’s not let that get in the way of a good headline.

(60/41)-1 = 46.3% Increase

But let's not let math get in the way of a good rant.

Thanks for the link.

Hopefully the full autospy findings will show that the feral human had been a drug user and a “Lean” user, and the pc DA will allow this data to entered by the defense.
