Children in some of the most affluent neighborhoods in the nation are no longer safe walking down the sidewalk.
As one horrifying case after the next has proven, children are under attack in one blue state.
And you won’t believe the hairbrained plan their governor hatched.
Merely existing in their home city has become perilous for children in the Big Apple.
Back to school is rife with danger as some of the city’s most affluent neighborhoods have seen numerous random and unprovoked attacks on children.
Only last week three preteens were punched and shoved with no warning in Greenwich Village—a favorite celebrity hang out.
The New York City Police Department reports that the horrifying crime spike amounts to a 34% increase in attacks on young people under the age of 18 so far this year compared to 2021.
Victims include 117 children who have been shot this year, as of August 14, compared to 87 last year.
Police arrested the man who’d made headlines for harassing children in Greenwich Village recently, but that doesn’t mean much with pro-crime District Attorneys in charge of most big blue cities.
Even suspects accused of assault and attempted murder have been getting right back out of jail after they’re arrested.
Meanwhile, New York Governor Kathy Hochul has a brilliant plan to solve all the Empire State’s problems: she recently signed a law making certain toy guns illegal.
That’s right, if your kid is facing down a thug in NYC he isn’t even allowed to pull out a plastic Glock replica.
According to Hochul, those bits of plastic are vastly dangerous.
“Restricting these realistic-looking devices will ensure misleading and potentially dangerous devices are off our streets, keeping kids, law enforcement and all New Yorkers safe,” Hochul she announced as she signed the bill.
Clearly, the bad guys are shaking in their shoes as law-abiding parents toss their children’s black, blue, silver, and aluminum toy guns in the trash.
So far, New York officials haven’t announced what they’re going to do about the fists thugs have been using to attack unsuspecting children and adults from behind.
In at least one case, a man who was randomly attacked in NYC is in a coma and unlikely to survive even after undergoing brain surgery.
In such a violent and dangerous environment created by pro-crime Democrats, banning a plastic gun instead of dealing with criminals is beyond insulting and yet another illustration of how little Democrats care about the next generation.
