Opinion: Rising gun violence and shocking crimes require sober analysis, not knee-jerk responses
New Yorkers are reeling from a rise in gun violence, and a series of shocking violent crimes against police and subway riders. In response Mayor Eric Adams has vowed new initiatives to combat gun violence to make our subways safe.
As a diehard New Yorker, I believe both efforts deserve support. All New Yorkers deserve to feel safe, on the subway and in their communities, and right now, they don’t.
