New York’s Martial Law Fails, Disarmed Citizens Risk Their Lives on Subway

New York Democrats are making New York City the most dangerous place on earth. The city subways have become a cesspool of crime and violence. While Governor Hochul seems to be insistent on creating a victim/predator society by keeping law-abiding citizens unarmed and helpless in the Big Apple, violent criminals are running wild.

There has already been much controversy over Kathy Hochul’s new subway policy, which puts military personnel at subway checkpoints. Most people are saying this is government overreach and an unnecessary power grab by New York officials. The controversial Governor claims that because crime has reached such high levels, she is forced to bring in the military. This appears to be nothing more than a tactic to avoid actually fixing the problem of crime and mental instability in New York City. In typical Democrat fashion, New York officials are perpetuating a problem so they can create a solution that suits them politically.

Recently, 36-year-old Dajuan Robinson entered the subway without paying his fare, entered a crowded subway car, and created a chaotic event while ultimately pulling a gun on a passenger. But wait. How did he get past Hochul’s military? Clearly, this new martial law policy is not fixing the violence problem in the New York subway system, and passengers are being forced to find ways to defend themselves against attackers.

Robinson, who many say has mental illness issues, created a disturbance and got into a physical altercation with another passenger. A third passenger stabbed Robinson in what appeared to be an act of self-defense and to stop Robinson’s violent rage. Robinson then pulled a gun on the disarmed, law-abiding subway commuters. In a desperate attempt to save his life and the lives of innocent bystanders, the passenger Robinson was fighting with grabbed Robinson’s gun and shot him in the head. Robinson was transferred to New York Presbyterian-Weill Cornell Medical Center and remained in critical condition as of Saturday. According to The New York Post, Joseph Giacalone, a retired NYPD sergeant and adjunct professor at John Jay College of Criminal Justice, said Robinson could be charged with criminal possession of a firearm, fare evasion, menacing and reckless endangerment. Did we think for a minute that Robinson acquired his firearm legally?

So, it appears that in Hochul’s predator-dominant society, if you need to defend yourself, you must find means other than the use of your own concealed-carry firearm because the New York State Legislature has made sure that legal carry of firearms is prohibited despite several court rulings saying the gun laws in New York are unconstitutional.

In the last 30 years, violent crime has fluctuated between 1,200,000 and 2,300,000 incidents per year (these are only the ones we know about) in America, with a population of only 333,000,000. That does not give American Citizens very good odds, especially when gun possession by law-abiding citizens has been virtually outlawed in many blue cities. Now add to that a city that is quickly being overrun by mentally ill, homeless, and illegal residents, and you have a deadly combination. This is all a result of failed Democrat policies, yet the Governor continues to feed her supporters the talking point that she is “keeping people safe.”

Gun rights organizations are currently fighting against dangerous New York State gun laws in an attempt to afford New York residents the ability to defend themselves in situations exactly like the New York City subway incident. While the governor continues to work diligently at keeping good people unarmed and helpless, the criminals are running wild. Even this new political stunt of putting the military at the subway checkouts is not stopping the bad guys.

Armed citizens are always more effective at stopping violent crimes because they can provide an instant response.

In this subway case, the New York governor made it almost impossible for lives to be saved. Had it not been for a brave citizen who was willing to put his own life at risk, disarm a potential killer, and use that criminal’s gun against him in self-defense, there is no telling how many people would’ve died on that New York City train.

Kathy Hochul is forcing citizens into unarmed helplessness, and if they need to defend themselves, they must now first disarm the bad guy to get his weapon.
