It seems now that the people in the Big Apple have preferred using knives and are going on a stabbing rampage since it’s a more conventional tool.
A New York officer said to the media: “People aren’t afraid to carry guns, so they are not worried [about carrying] knives. Plus, it is a lot easier to get a hold of a knife”. Another cop added: “If you get caught carrying a knife or even a machete, you just get a desk appearance ticket. It is a misdemeanor. No value for human life.”
New York City is not alone in this crime insanity as several other democrat-run cities are filled with criminals walking around in the streets. From the blood-filled streets of Chicago’s Southside to Baltimore, St. Louis, Cleveland, Detroit, and many other Democrat cities, violent crime and total disregard for the value of human life have rendered parts of once-great cities veritable war zones.
Only these democrats understand what they are trying to achieve by not incarcerating numerous murderers and violent criminals. However, if they expected anything short of the increasing crime rate in their states, they have successfully shown that they do not have what it takes to govern an entire state.
Joseph Giacalone summarized this situation as a retired NYPD sergeant and adjunct professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice in Manhattan. He said, “We’ve probably lost two decades-worth of crime reductions, and that’s the real shame. All those years of hard work by the Police Department are all gone in one year,” and that is nothing but the truth.

The left-wingers have exploited everything they could concerning rifles, all because they are chipping away at the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding gun owners. Perhaps “assault knives” are next on the agenda for democratic exploitation?
