Murder rate is rising

| |

There has been 16 murders in the past five days. So far this year, 193 murders have occured and most by illegal guns.

I feel even one murder is too many.  As reported, there has been seven killings since Friday, including children, club goers, a shopkeeper and a husband.

In Queens this weekend, three men were killed with an AK-47 and about 63 shots were fired. There are those who complain, like the ACLU, that feel civil rights are being violated by NYPD’s  “Stop-and-Frisk” policy. Well, I wonder if they lost one of their loved ones due to illegal guns if they might say, “Why is not more being done?”

Let’s talk about civil rights, why don’t those being murdered have civil rights, too. Let me also point out our Finest are doing their best and are being shot at and wounded in the line of duty trying to protect us. Illegal guns must be stopped and taken off the street.

I have a partial solution and that is if you know someone with an illegal gun, report them to the police because the life you save could be your own.
