(NaturalNews) Gun violence is completely out of control in New York City, where strict gun control provisions just so happen to bar law-abiding citizens from carrying firearms for their own protection and that of those around them. So non-law-abiding criminals, who naturally do not follow gun laws, have basically taken over the city as a result, which recently led to the gunning down of an astounding 25 people in different parts of the Big Apple in less than 48 hours.

According to New York Daily News (NYDN), the victims hailed from all areas of the city, including the Bronx, Brooklyn, Queens, and Manhattan - the only part of the city not struck by the string of shootings was Staten Island. At least 12 people were reportedly shot in Brooklyn, while eight were sprayed with bullets in the Bronx and another four were mowed down in Queens. The one man who was blasted in Manhattan apparently lost his life in broad daylight amongst a crowd of people.

The string of shootings began on Sunday, June 2, when 21-year-old Ivan Martinez was approached by a 20-year-old gunman and another woman at 3:25 a.m. near E. 139th St. and Brook Ave. in the Bronx. The assailants shot Martinez in the head and reportedly fled the scene. Not long after this, another man in his 40s was gunned down by a different assailant in East Harlem, while four hours earlier another man was murdered in cold blood in Brooklyn. And a few dozen more shootings took place in the hours that followed all throughout the city.

"The two days of bloodshed represented 5 percent of this year's roughly 440 shootings," explains NYDN about the shooting spree. "Despite the violence, that figure represents a 23 percent drop compared with the 574 victims shot through this time last year."

'Safe Act' gun control laws have done nothing to curb gun violence in NYC

Among the 25 New Yorkers shot, six ended up dying, according to At least one of the suspects, who was involved in a shooting at Brooklyn's Prospect Park, reportedly fired at police before fleeing the scene. And nearly half of all the shootings occurred on Sunday, while 14 of the shootings occurred between Friday and Saturday. But most noteworthy is the fact that all the shootings happened after the passage of NYSAFE Act Gun Reform, which just goes to show the utter failure of gun control legislation at curbing gun violence.

"It is all but impossible to obtain a firearm license in New York City," wrote one commenter on a article about the difficulty of law-abiding citizens to exercise their Second Amendment rights in New York City. "There is, in effect, a complete ban on firearms in five boroughs. As such, I can say with almost 100 percent certainty that the firearms involves [sic] in these shootings where [sic] illegally possessed. What has the Safe Act done to even remotely address this?"
