Marjorie Taylor Greene Believes Constitutional Carry Would Make New York Safer

On April 11, 2022 tragedy struck New York City when a suspected African American gunman, Frank James, shot 10 people and injured 13 others in an attack on a Brooklyn subway station. James also set off a smoke grenade in the subway.

The suspect is still at large.

The political class immediately capitalized on this incident to push its anti-gun and pro-police state agenda. During a press conference, New York Governor Kathy Hochul declared, “We are sick and tired of reading headlines about crime … It has to stop. I am committing the full resources of our state to fight this surge of crime, this insanity that is seizing our city.”

Hochul recently praised the Biden administration’s move to crack down on homemade firearms. She stated, ““No one should be able to circumvent the process to gain access to deadly weapons, especially those that take just 30 minutes to assemble and whose parts often cost less than $100.”

Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene responded to a tweet that The Post Millennial posted, which showed Hochul’s comments.  Greene tweeted, “Pass Constitutional Carry in New York and crime will drop to extremely low levels.

Gun control laws only create victims bc bad guys don’t care about laws.

Allow people to defend themselves and others.”

With Georgia passing Constitutional Carry earlier this week, there are now 25 states with Constitutional Carry. This is the simple concept that any lawful individual should be allowed to carry a firearm without having to beg the government for permission. 

New York is one of the most anti-Second Amendment states in the nation. According to AZ Defenders’ rankings for best states for gun owners, New York is ranked in a terrible 50th place.

With a combination of pro-criminal policies such as no cash bail and draconian gun control laws, New York has turned into a de facto criminal safe space. One of the simplest ways to empower law-abiding citizens against criminals is by letting them have more freedom to arm themselves. The best first responder against a criminal is an armed citizen.

However, New York state is a one-party state, with Democrats in firm control. This makes it unlikely that any meaningful pro-gun reform will be passed anytime soon.
