Nine people have been shot since the city welcomed in 2013, police said.
Gunfire first erupted at around 2 a.m., when two people were hit with bullets in separate incidents.
In the first shooting, which happened on White Plains Road and Seward Avenue in the Bronx, a 32-year-old man was hit in the stomach and taken to Jacobi Hospital, cops said. He is in stable condition.
In the second report of gunplay, a 19-year-old boy was shot in the back on Irving Avenue in Bushwick, Brooklyn, cops added. He was rushed to Wyckoff Hospital in stable condition.
Then, at around 3 a.m. a 24-year-old man was popped in the buttocks after a fight broke out between a large group near Jerome Avenue and West Fordham Road in the Bronx, cops said.
Forget trying to get a concealed carry permit: even owning a gun is damn near impossible in New York City. I’m pretty certain that even toy guns are illegal, even if they’re made from Day-Glo™ plastic. It takes ages and ages and immense amounts of money to get a permit for anything, long gun or hand gun. Ammunition is also strictly controlled. So it’s pretty much a guarantee that every single one of these shootings was done with an illegal gun.
How is this possible? NYC has been run by Liberals since ... forever!, and they’ve had seriously strict, population-disarming gun control since ... forever!!
Boy, those straw purchase gun smugglers in Virginia must be working overtime.
I’m still laughing my ass off at the people who thought they were so righteous producing a map of all the gun owners. They don’t realize they just told the criminals exactly where to strike without fear of being shot. If my house was robbed, I’d sue the news people that printed it.
”...Popped in the buttocks...”?
I’d rather be shot dead than...no, wait...um...I don’t understand.
Heard the latest, HC58? Someone published the home locations and phone numbers of a bunch of “journalists” that work for the rag that published that gun-owners list. It was all publicly available info - just like the gun owner info.
Result: The friggin’ hypocrite paper owners hired ARMED GUARDS to “protect” the paper facility.
Wait, wasn’t that my previous post? And while it WAS all public info, it was public one record at a time, without a map.
When the J-N publishes the serial number of my Gold Match, I’m suing.
Oh Drew, say it ain’t so. You mean to tell me that people of color are killing each other over Nike’s and I Phones? Imagine that, and using illegal guns too. In NYC no less. Will wonders never cease.
When they publish the serial no of my AR-15 I’ll be stunned - since it was bought privately (and quite legally) decades ago and no record of my ownership (or the previous owner, for that matter) exists.
Just like about half my “arsenal”.
That will be amazing, Steamy. But I AM one of the dots on that map that was published. And I AM very pissed off, even though that paper had done almost the exact same thing a few years earlier, only without the interactive map.
Oh, I’d be royally pissed, too! And I thoroughly approve of the “turnabout is fair play” act of publishing the journalists’ addresses.
Off-topic, but can you tell me what ballistic software you use, and will it account for powder speed and load for a .50 AE casing loaded with a sabot’ed light .45 bullet loaded with a faster powder load? I was messing with them earlier this year and lost my nerve when it became apparent that I needed a faster-burning powder to push the lighter bullet out at a higher speed. Its for a DE .50 Action Express.
