In a recent interview, Congresswoman Elise Stefanik (NY-21) called out the left’s disastrous soft crime policies responsible for the surge in crime across the nation. She also called out the ‘Defund the Police’ movement and slammed Kathy Hochul’s unconstitutional legislation that violates New Yorkers’ Second Amendment rights. In recent months, crime has skyrocketed across the country. Democrat-run cities like New York, Chicago, and Los Angeles are experiencing incredibly high crime rates and are doing nothing to combat the problem. “We are seeing Democrats and Far-Leftists prioritizing the criminal rather than standing up for the rights of the victim…We need safety and security. This is amidst a crime wave in New York State and across the country resulting from the ‘Defund the Police’ rhetoric and policies that Democrats have been pushing from coast to coast.” Congresswoman Stefanik also highlighted Governor Hochul’s unconstitutional legislation and the Supreme Court’s historic Second Amendment decision. “We’ve seen Kathy Hochul try to double down on her unconstitutional anti-Second Amendment legislation. We are going to have to challenge that in the courts as well.” “The Supreme Court ruling when it comes to the concealed carry permit process in New York, that was a win for the Constitution, a win for every New Yorker.”
