It’s not enough to hunt “ghost guns” – go after the criminals

As politicians make policy and conspire on how best to twist the violence, destruction and death caused by their disastrous criminal justice reforms, two more families identify the bodies of their teenage children in the morgue: one in The Bronx for a teenager with a gun and another in Mount Vernon by a schoolmate with a knife.

What is President Biden, Senator Chuck Schumer and the gang of idiots in Albany’s response to stop this bloodbath of our children? spirit weapons. Blaming ghosts instead of criminals who knowingly and intentionally pull a trigger or stick a knife in another person’s body will save everyone. Thank goodness we have such an amazing guide.

A “ghost” does not killed 16-year-old Angellyh Yambo, described as “the cutest girl you’ll ever meet”. A brazen criminal pulled the trigger. Jeremiah Ryan, 17, allegedly tried to kill someone else as he ended her life, shooting dead and wounding two other teenagers. decided to draw his very real gun, pull the very real trigger, and inflict very real and ultimate consequences on a very real 16-year-old girl.

Children are no longer safe walking to and from school, playing in the park, riding the bus or subway, or walking down the street with their parents. Ghosts are not to blame; the criminals who commit these acts are.

A ghost gun is certainly not to blame brutal stabbing of several teenagers at a school parade not too far from where Angellyh was shot. Another criminal intentionally drove a knife into their bodies, killing one of them. So how will Chuck Schumer and his Ghost Gun Buster explain the death of this 16-year-old who was a Mount Vernon High School cheerleader?

As our so-called leaders waste valuable time focusing on whether a weapon is traceable, people die, children die and lives are shattered. What we should really be pursuing is whether these criminals should have been out on the streets with no regard for human life. Why don’t we trace where the parents of these teenage killers are?

Jeremiah Ryan, a “good kid” in the words of his own family, was Posing with guns online since the age of 12. Where was his mother? His father? Where were the authority figures? What about the intervention and services we were promised to prevent this very tragedy? Could the police have done something, or were their hands tied by the law?

The criminal element is encouraged by the youngest Criminal justice reforms such as Raise the Age, bail reform and Less Is More and calls for lenient condemnation from the same politicians who passed these deadly reforms – who are now shouting feigned outrage at ghost guns.

Every New Yorker should be outraged. More and more voters are now realizing the game our so-called leaders are playing with optics to try to save their jobs. This can’t be a “ban the sale of ghost weapons and we’re done” while hoping the clock ticks down by November. Weapons, whether guns, knives, hammers, hatchets or bricks, are the tools.

Ghosts don’t pick them up and use them or pull the trigger, criminals do.

And now two more teenagers are dead as we pray elected officials will put people ahead of politics before we have to bury more innocent victims.
