Criminals know the vast majority of New Yorkers are unarmed and helpless

New York City is the epitome of PC liberal insanity. Due to decades of revulsion in response to the fact individuals are responsible for their own self defense and an illogical fear of firearms, thousands of people have suffered and many have died at the hands of psychopaths and violent criminals.
Criminals know they have nothing to fear. They know the vast majority of New Yorkers are unarmed and helpless. The police long ago admitted it is not their responsibility to protect the public. Police exist in New York and other large cities primarily to generate revenue for the state.
The latest incident demonstrating you have to be insane to live in New York occurred the other day in the Rockaway Avenue and Fulton Street A and C train station in Bedford-Stuyvesant. An emigre from Guyana was hit in the head with a hammer as he bought a transit card. He is lucky to be alive. The hammer-wielding attacker stole $140 from the commuter.
Indisputable facts reveal concealed carry prevents crime and saves lives. Florida’s homicide rate dropped from 36% above the national average to 4% below after residents were allowed to carry firearms. In Texas, the homicide rate fell 50% faster than the national average after a concealed carry law was passed.
If the man at the New York train station had an open carry firearm, the hammer attacker would have undoubtedly left him alone. A 1985 Department of Justice survey of incarcerated felons reported that 57 percent of the felons polled agreed that “criminals are more worried about meeting an armed victim than they are about running into the police,” according to U.S. News & World Report.
