Three killed Sunday after three were killed Saturday. One of the wounded includes an 11-year-old girl who will never walk again.
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.

Oh, let’s take guns away from law-abiding citizens. What could POSSIBLY go wrong? /s
Must be Republican Tourists to blame.
This cannot be possible - Andrew Cuomo passed the SAFE act. The guns are not a problem anymore
May I even ask if the perps were old white tea party activists?
Mayor Bloomberg is a self parody.
I know we are all surprised that the 3 deadliest cities for gun shootings are also 3 of the most stringent gun law cities
will ANY anti gun Politician or media mouthpiece have the courage to point that out
Democrats are a violent species.
Tea party peeps going wild again.....when will the NRA get control of their funkies.....
I’m guessing 100% of the perps are from the 25% minority population.
A certain amount of gun violence will be "allowed" so as to create the demand for more gun control.
“will ANY anti gun Politician or media mouthpiece have the courage to point that out”
A responsible media? Responsible politicians? Surely you jest!
Yeah but NY’ers are protected from the really evil stuff like salt, soda’s, and cigarettes...
This is impossible! The new gun laws that restrict “clips” to “no more than seven bullets because you don’t need 10 bullets to keeeel a deeeeeaaaah” fixed everything!
Trying to be like Chicago?
Ah... here it comes... "Climate change! We need more laws!!!"
Rudy at least added the gun crimes to perps on the street.
I believe Bloomers would rather have more deaths to solidify
his anti gun position...like his buddy Rahm Emanuel in Chit-cago
Democrat Governors must be the cause of the violence.
Food for further sobering thought: that percentage probably drops to under 2% when one considers it’s comprised solely of males between the ages of 14 and 25. Your guns, however, are to blame.
This will only reinforce the calls for gun restrictions.
The less virtuous a people, the greater its need for laws.
And this appeared in the articles comments a few minutes ago, posted by someone named “ OLDER WISER”
“That brokerage firm I mentioned that bought up as m,any gun manufacturing companies it could get it’s hands on is the Cerberus Capital Management firm.
Guess who owns the Cerberus Capital Management firm.
That would be George Soros.
“Who is buying companies that manufacture firearms?
Confirmed Marlin Firearms is already closing its doors!Even if you do not own a gun, you need to know this.This needs to be spread to all gun owners and sportsman.We cannot rely on the media to report on this major issue (One line from the Cerberus Capital Management information at Wikipedia:)
Firearms Acquired Bushmaster Firearms, Inc., from Windham, Mainenative Dick Dyke for an undisclosed sum in April 2006, and purchased Remington Armsin April 2007. Under Cerberus direction, Bushmaster Firearms acquired Cobb Manufacturing, a well-respected manufacturer of large-caliber tactical rifles in August 2007.
Cerberus also acquired DPMS Panther ArmsDecember 14, 2007. Remington Arms acquired Marlin Firearms in January 2008. In October 2009, Remington Military products acquired silencer manufacturer Advanced Armament Corporation. These companies were combined into the Freedom Group.
For the last several years a company called The Freedom Group
has been buying-up gun and ammunition manufacturers. Some of
the companies are Bushmaster, Marlin, Remington, DPMS,
Dakota Arms and H&R. Some people worry that this Freedom
Group is going to control most (if not all) of the firearms companies
in the United States. If you control the manufacturers, you can
decide to stop selling to civilians. What a perfect way to control guns!
This will keep Obama, et al from trashing the 2nd amendment think about that!
If you do some digging you will see that The Freedom Group is
owned by a company called Cerberus Capital Management.
Guess who controls Cerberus? GEORGE SOROS!! One of the most
evil men on this planet, who wants to restrict or ban all civilian guns.
Please pass this on to all your freedom-loving friends. This needs to
come out. Why have we not heard about this in the mainstream media?
I would think this would be BIG news. (Soros also owns Progressive Insurance)
If you dont know who George Soros is, you need to do some research. He backed and IS BACKING Obama with millions of dollars and Obama is a puppet on a string controlled by Soros.
Send this to every gun owner in America! “
Any FReepers aware of this?
We have a racial shooting gap? Or, are guns “racist?” OMG
Since they are all "bullet-riddled" I assume the victims were all shot by guns with high capacity magazines on full auto?
(Sorry, journalistic nit picking)
Looks like they are in competition with Chicago on how many they can send to the morgue in one weekend. Bloomberg will soon call for officers to frisk little old ladies with walkers and old men with canes.
Is there a play-off on killing going on between Chicago and NYC - the cities with the strictest of gun laws??
Wow, the first and second cities can’t figure out what the third city Houston knows. CCLs defend the citizen better than cops who are minutes away , when seconds count.
Thugs will kill one another when there are no cost involved, like an armed opposition.
Detroit gets the label but if you were to make a distinction (which law enforcement doesn’t do) between homicide/shootings and justifiable homicide/defensive shootings, I suspect things would look quite different. Detroit is an open or concealed carry city.
They certainly are. Also, they are mean and hateful. They react rather than think. That’s why I am not friends with liberals.
Hope that’s true - thanks.
Another night of Urban Feral “Killing Frenzy” behavior in the Big Sh*ty.
Bloomberg & Cuomo’s fault!!
Hmmm, I should’ve considered that possibility. Guns are racist and just shoot minorities. That explains everything.
What are the 3 deadliest cities for gun shootings?
If these are low-info DIM voters shooting other low-info DIM voters, it is difficult to see the problem.
Why are Staten Island residents saner than the rest of the NYC borough residents?
Must be people visiting from Chicago
and IIRC correctly Detroit
but new Orleans is in the top 5
not sure about their gun laws although I suspect they don’t have many
Houston has a higher murder rate (9.97 per 100,000) than New York (5.05), and a higher overall crime rate too (992.53 vs. 639.29). Not that New York’s fascist gun control laws have anything to do with it, but NYC is now one of the safer big cities in the country (and world).
not sure about their gun laws although I suspect they dont have many...They have no laws. The cops steal PATROL CARS to get away from the SHTF.
After further review NYC was NOT in the top
of course now they are
but new Orleans is in the top 5 not sure about their gun laws although I suspect they dont have many Nonsense. Those cities may have the largest number of murders, but that's not a relevant comparison. New York City has ~8.5 million people, more than double the next-largest city (LA, with ~3.9 million), so of course the total number of murders will be higher here.
The relevant comparison is the per capita rate of murders.
and any idea how the majority of those deaths happened?
Detroit btw was @1
I’m not saying they weren’t gun murders. My point is that comparing the raw number of murders is meaningless. The relevant comparison is the per capita murder rate.
actually MY original point was not about murders but the violent use of guns in cities with supposedly strict gun laws
and my point stands
Murder or not, you are simply wrong that the violent use of guns is higher in New York than in other cities. Again, while there may be more incidents in New York than elsewhere, that comparison is meaningless, as New York has more than twice the population of any other US city. The more relevant comparison is the per capita RATE of violent use of guns, which is actually quite low in NYC, as compared with other cities.
I guess you missed when I corrected myself
“After further review NYC was NOT in the top
of course now they are”
and the point, ONE MORE TIME , is not about murders it is about leftists thinking stricter gun laws prevent or even cut down on the use of guns by criminals
If you don’t get that then just move on, I can’t explain it any further to you
