USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- Within a one-year time period, under the new bail-reform law, New York Democrats have released nearly 100,000 criminals without bail after being charged with offenses that would have previously kept them in custody or would have required bail.
Over 4000 of them have since re-committed violent crimes.
In 773 of those cases, the violent felons avoided the firearms background checks (those to which, law-abiding people are subjected) to acquire the guns that were used in the crimes. While their failed gun control policies stare them in the face, New York Democrats insist that we need more of the same gun laws that put good people in danger and continue to be ignored by the bad guys. It makes you wonder who the New York gun laws are really intended for.
According to The Times Union,
“Between July 2020 and June 2021, there were 3,460 cases in which adults were rearrested on violent felony charges, including 773 with a firearm, after first being charged with crimes for which judges can no longer set bail or keep the defendant jailed.”
Violent felony crimes include assault, rape, and attempted murder. Kathy Hochul, New York’s appointed, placeholder, Governor and Moms Demand Action pawn, seems to be unaffected by the terrible results of this new law. Her response to the failed bail reform policy was to further exacerbate the problem and release 191 detainees from Rikers Island in September 2021. Why not?
Maybe releasing more criminals will help reduce the crime rate. Surely, our New York elected government employees aren’t trying to create more violence. Are they? Hochul was given the Governor’s seat after Andrew Cuomo resigned amidst several accusations of embarrassing sexual exploitations and between 6,000-10,000 covid-related nursing home deaths, many believe were a direct result of Cuomo’s negligence. According to the CNY CENTRAL website, prominent House Republican, Elise Stefanic said (while referring to Hochul), “It’s important to know what she knew, when she knew it, and there needs to be accountability.”
Are New York Democrats purposely trying to create violence in New York?
What could they possibly get out of that, other than making lawful citizens even more fearful to leave their homes and creating an excuse to push for more gun laws?
New York Democrats don’t seem to be bothered by the horrific criminal activity they are perpetuating. In an attempt to negate any reason for holding them accountable or keeping them in prison, the New York State Assembly claimed that there’s no way to measure a criminals’ level of “dangerousness.” According to WSKG, Democrats in the State Assembly said that holding some people before a trial could lead to disproportionate outcomes for people of color. Isn’t the punishment for a crime supposed to be determined by the crime? Apparently, these particular politicians take a much more racist approach to this concept.
Cash bail was initially intended to incentivize those who were charged with a crime to show up in court, but it would now seem that skin color plays a much larger role in the New York legal system. So, while “Governor” Hochul And her gang of Constitution-violating socialists continue to release violent felons from prison, they are also looking to make gun ownership by law-abiding citizens nearly impossible with a push to turn NY AB-7771 & SB-3018 into law. Follow the links to review the bills, but here is a summary:
“Relates to establishing additional requirements to purchase a firearm, shotgun or rifle; requires a person to apply for a hunting license prior to the purchase of a shotgun or rifle [becuase self-defense is all about hunting]; establishes additional requirements for all firearms, shotguns and rifles including taking a five hour gun safety course and exam, passing a shooting range test with 90% accuracy, providing notarized proof of a passed drug test and mental health evaluation, providing proof of purchase of firearm and ammunition safe storage depositories and passing a criminal background check.”
Did I miss the part in the 2nd Amendment that reads: “shall not be infringed unless you fail the New York State facilitated written exam and/or the anti-gun legislature’s mental health evaluation?”
So, if you live in New York, you get to live among violent felons AND be unarmed and helpless at the same time. What a deal! Thanks, Democrats!
The 2nd Amendment is not a privilege. It’s your right.
