Now Bloomberg’s gun-control nirvana is quickly transforming itself into the south side of Chicago as evidenced by last weekend’s spate of violence:
Three killed Sunday after three were killed Saturday. One of the wounded includes an 11-year-old girl who will never walk again.
Violence surged like the mercury Sunday, with three more fatalities from gun violence — and eight others wounded in shootings — bringing the total number of bullet-riddled in the city to 25 in less than 48 hours…
…Sunday’s first fatality was Ivan Martinez, 21, who was approached around 3:25 a.m. by a 20-year-old gunman and a woman at E. 139th St. near Brook Ave. in the Bronx, police said… The gunman shot Martinez once in the head and ran off with the woman.
…In the second fatal attack, a man in his 40s was gunned down during an argument in East Harlem around 1:20 p.m. The victim, who has not been identified by police, was blasted multiple times in the torso on E. 105th St. near First Ave. Less than four hours later, Damien Powell, 25, was killed after he was shot in the chest outside the Albany Houses in Crown Heights, sources and witnesses said. The victim’s mother collapsed at the scene, where shell casings littered the street, witnesses said.
Three men were wounded in the wild Brooklyn shooting that left terrified bystanders ducking for cover… “I heard maybe 20 shots,” said Guy Pierre Louis, 50, who lives on Lenox Road. “I thought it was like the Fourth of July.”
Cops are now hunting for the alleged gunman, Kevon Brown, 30, who also shot at a pair of officers during the melee, police said. He’s described as 5-foot-10, 185 pounds.
And I love the liberal scranks who blame neighboring cities for their city’s homicide rate. “The guns are all coming in from neighboring cities where they’re easy to obtain,” they’ll whine, “that’s why the murder rate is so high!”
You mean those same cities that are infinitely safer than Chicago?
Man, these people are stupid.
