Once again touting the supposed benefits of effectively rescinding the Second Amendment as it applies to law-abiding citizens within his metropolis, New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio recently cited a rise in knife attacks as a positive trend.
Celebrating the fact that “guns are being taken off the street in an unprecedented way,” the Democrat literally thanked God that criminals have resorted to slashing and stabbing victims unable to defend themselves with a firearm.
“They’re turning to a different weapon,” de Blasio said of New York thugs. “Well, guess what that means. The NYPD will now go get those weapons.”
Instead of focusing on the city’s crime problem, this activist mayor has made it clear he wants to follow up his quixotic quest to eradicate guns with an all-out effort to enact knife control.
