New York City, home of some of the most stringent gun control policies in the nation and of gun control gestapo head Michael Bloomberg has seen a sharp uptick of the victimization of its citizens by roves of thugs and criminals.
Over the past weekend the disarmed citizens of New York who frequent Central Park were prey to at least 3 unrelated and violent muggings.
The first mugging occurred at 9:30pm on Saturday when a gang of 12 teenagers descended upon a couple walking through the park. The group was armed with knives and tasers and stole the couples cell phones. For good measure this gang of hoodlums punched the woman in the face.
When gun controllers rage on and on about magazine limits they should take a look at this couple who would need more than 7 rounds to stop a gang of 12 who very well could have gone from beating the woman to killing her boyfriend and raping her.
Of course, being New York City the couple was all ready at a disadvantage being disarmed by the policies of gun hating hoplophobes like Bloomberg and his ilk.
The second mugging occurred on Sunday morning where a 45 year old man was choked and robbed of his wallet and backpack by a gun wielding mugger.
I wonder how that can be though. I mean, gun control is supposed to stop bad guys from having guns. Oh wait, no, its meant to stop law abiding citizens from defending themselves and ensuring that criminals don’t get hurt in their commission of crimes.
