New York –-(Ammoland.com)- New statistics released by the NYPD showing an increase in homicides and shootings are more proof that gun control and the so-called SAFE Act has not made New York City any safer.

“Elected officials from the Governor on down touted the supposed benefits to public safety the SAFE Act would bring,” NYSRPA President Tom King said.

“The gun control lobby followed them up with unsubstantiated claims ( http://tiny.cc/ahfxux ) a lazy media did not bother to investigate. Yet when the facts come out disproving their assertions, both the politicians and antigun lobbyists are silent.”

King concluded, “Here’s my suggestion to the New York media: Track down all those SAFE supporters and ask them, in light of the evidence, to justify their position.”

I hate the SAFE act as much as the next guy, but I don’t know if this the statistic to support our cause. It is bad guys killing bad guys and honestly, i’m good with that.

As an ex police officer in South Africa, when the ANC took control in 1994-5 the first thing they did was ban people carrying guns in public, could not carry in the car either. There were heavy penalties for those that broke the law. Car jackings’ went up, ATM robberies, then the rapes, murders and assaults on on all denominations of people. Restriction of firearms do not work. The bad guys still have guns. As lots of people have advocated, safety, training and practice the use of same is essential. Do not prosecute the good folk. Catch the bad guys.… Read more »

Everybody in the whole world needs certain things to sustain themselves. Among them are food, income, shelter, freedom, family. But the whole world needs to know that firearms do preserve all of the these. Also firearms are used to provide food. The most important thing people need is education, without it we may just go forward in reverse. And one other thing. Our right to bear arms as i read from the federalist papers clearly defines and explains its intent and meaning. like i said education! you ask how will firearms preserve these , well just look back at history.… Read more »
