Instead of Sasquatch DeBlasio and annoying AOC pushing to defund the police, why don’t they try and find out where all of these guns are coming from – probably the southern states based on the many southern license plates around the city. NYC has turned into the wild west where innocent people are being killed and their murderers usually run to some relative in NC or Florida or who knows where?

Nutty. Some kind of warning of malicious intent? More concerning if it was simply ‘random’.
