New York’s appointed Governor Kathy Hochul continues to provide hard-left anti-gun “leadership” to the Empire State. Her latest directive to the NYPD: Assume that anyone carrying a firearm is carrying unlawfully. Because New York City is such a bastion of safety, civility and security thanks to generations of strict gun control.
Project Veritas uncovered the latest memo from NYPD to its beat cops. GOA shared it via Twitter . . .

Because licensed good guys carrying guns for personal defense are driving New York City’s crime problem. Of course they are.
Here’s the Project Veritas release . . .
Meanwhile, on New York’s east side, violent criminals run amok, with little or no fear of apprehension by police or prosecution by its Soros-funded prosecutors like Alvin Bragg. Case in point: this little drama which played out barely a block away from the United Nations famed knotted revolver sculpture.

That’s right, little over one block from the vaunted UN “non-violence” sculpture, armed robbers operate with impunity in a city where just about all of the good guys remain disarmed, easy victims thanks to New York’s strict gun laws.
But after the Bruen decision, Governor Kathy Hochul intends to treat everyone with a gun as a criminal. Because setting up confrontations between cops and good guys and depriving them of their civil rights is a wonderful idea. Then again, maybe that’s a feature of Hochul’s directive, not a bug.
