If only there were more guns in NYC

See, this is why we need more guns. If everyone had guns then this could have been a MUCH larger shootout! 2nd amendment forever let’s go brandon!

you voted for it

one year in and biden and democrats and the defund the police movement has, well, um….. its destroyed Amerixa


Defund police?? My brother in law made almost $200K last year on the job for the NYPD..How much more funding of the police is needed? The guy who was shot was released by the courts (and charged with serious offenses). Sounds like the police did their job in this case.

Defund the NEW YORK PD destroyed America?

I know NY’ers are a little egotistical but…you do understand that NYC is not a country of 329.5 million…right?

Gun Crime: Thanks Reoublicans

Ever look up the gun crime rates in other “advanced” countries? Makes us look not so advanced.

Trump should have built a wall or something

Trump had 4 years as president with a Republican senate to get his “one-time payment” for The Wall. Complete failure. Don’t blame “liberals” just because you fell for it.

Don’t allow you or your loved ones to be useful idiots

SMH- Open boarders is a bogeyman fairytale meant to scare weak minded gullible and fearful into voting for and supporting a party that does not have your best interest at heart.


well, it is expected. i mean, that area is not getting gentrified anytime soon. its not a good area.

ABoondy- That area is a light industry and commercial area. This crime has nothing to do with gentrification. The criminals who made this attempt target clubs just like this one throughout the city and surrounding suburbs.

95th Street and 37th and 35th Avenues were a great place to raise a child. So many great memories from the 60’s into the 70’s . I moved in the middle 70’s . About 3 years ago I wanted to take a trip down memory lane so I took a Bus to Junction Blvd right off 37th Avenue . I was so so saddened by the quality of life there. It was a jungle of noise, music, screaming and arguing. I hailed a Cab and went home. The Cab driver said to me without coaxing “” They ruined this area “”


You can say the same about all of western queens today. Back the people knew what areas to avoid. Today crime and bad qualify of life is more spread out. No one would dare to do anything in family oriented neighborhoods because you wouldnt get away with it.


Caroline- Have you been diagnosed with paranoia? You probably should turn off your TV and get out more, if you’re as frightened as your post suggests you should move.
