ANTI GUN NEW YORK DOES NOT WANT TO PUNISH GUN CRIMES
As homicides, shootings explode in police-defunded NYC,
Manhattan DA candidates vow not to jail people for gun crimes
If ever there is a story that shows the absolute lunacy of Democratic politicians, this one needs to be near, if not at the top of the list. According to the Wall Street Journal, most of the current candidates running for Manhattan District Attorney are opposed to jailing people for illegal firearms possession.
Think about this for a moment. New York is currently in the middle of what can only be described as an epidemic crime wave, yet those running to be the chief law enforcement official in the city are taking progressive positions on gun crimes. The Journal reported it thusly:
“As New York City grapples with rising violent crime, the Manhattan district attorney candidates are responding with progressive law-enforcement proposals that underscore how different this election is for one of the nation’s top prosecutor jobs.
With few exceptions, they have floated proposals for a gun court to keep young defendants out of jail, partnerships with community-cased organizations and plans to funnel prosecutor resources to assist police in solving cases.”
Such policies would mark a departure from how Mr. Vance and his predecessor, Robert Morgenthau, prosecuted gun cases for four decades. For instance, suspects charged with felony possession of a loaded firearm face a mandatory minimum of 3.5 years in prison.
DAWG SAYS: IT APPEARS THAT THERE IS A STRONG MOVEMENT TO ONLY GO AFTER LAW ABIDING CITIZENS WITH GUNS- THE CRIMINALS CONTINUALLY GET A PASS.
