President Joe Biden met with New York Democrats on Thursday and actively blamed guns for the increase in crime in New York City.
He also tried to place blame on Republicans for blocking gun control measures in Congress.
“Enough is enough,” Biden heatedly declared. “Because we know we can do things about this, but for the resistance, we’re getting from some sectors of the government and the congress and the state legislatures, and the organizational structures out there.”
"Enough is enough."

He stated that he is not looking to defund the police but rather spend more money hiring “beyond someone with a gun strapped their shoulder, to their hip.”
“We need more social workers. We need more mental health workers,” Biden continued. “The answer is not to defund the police. It’s to give you the tools, the training, the funding, to be partners, to be protectors."
The New York Post reports that “nearly every category of overall serious crime in the city is on the rise” in 2022, citing police data showing an increase of 35.2 percent in crime compared to 2021.
In 2019, New York State eliminated cash bail and required the release of people charged with misdemeanors and nonviolent felonies.
Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg began the year announcing his office would not put accused criminals in detention before trial unless it was a homicide or other serious crimes.
Overall crime is up 38 percent and shootings up 32 percent, according to NBC News. Other non-gun-related crimes have spiked including 70 percent in transit crime and car thefts up 93 percent.
Biden criticized the "iron pipeline" of firearms coming to Northeastern cities from the south, stating that the availability of guns is a “sea fed by many rivers.”
“I put forward a plan to dam up some of those streams,” he added.
The problem with Democrats is that they continuously try to run their cities the same way and have the same, terrible results. Banning guns is not the answer. Guns do not kill people, just like cars don't crash themselves, pencils don't misspell words, and spoons don't make you fat.
