Where will NYC Mayor Bill De Blasio’s genius end? As gun crime spikes in his city, he thinks a gun buyback will solve it. Maybe cutting $1bn from the police budget might be a factor in rising crime? When his own police officers are quitting in droves and making spoof videos about the new rules he has set for interacting with suspects.
Perhaps gangsters can hand in the guns of their victims and start a side business. Who knew the mayor might end up subsidizing criminals?
Sadly, despite shootings up 253% in NYC in mid-July, the studies on gun buybacks in the US have all returned the same result – ineffective.
We are struggling to work out who is the worst mayor in America. De Blasio must be in the running. The field of incompetent Democrat mayors is deep. – Lightfoot, Durkan, Bottoms, Bowser, Wheeler, Garcetti… the list goes on.
