Shootings in New York City logged a staggering 220 percent increase in the week ending July 19 compared to the same week a year ago, while monthly shootings have surged by 194 percent compared to the same 28-day period in 2019, police figures show.

Gun crime was worse in New York City 10 and 27 years ago, NYPD figures show. Ten years ago, there were 11 percent more shooting incidents and victims, while 27 years ago, the city reported 74 percent more shooting victims and 76 percent more incidents.

The NYPD has repeatedly complained that last year’s bail reforms let criminals stay out of jail even after repeated arrests. Another contributing factor could be that as the city was hit hard by the COVID-19 outbreak, many city services were curtailed or shut down and court rulings involving criminal gun possession, have piled up. According to the NYPD chief of crime control strategies, over 1,000 people that have open police investigations into their illegal possession of firearms are free to walk the streets of New York.

Meanwhile, the City Council, at Mayor Bill de Blasio’s recommendation, recently slashed the NYPD budget by $1 billion amid a massive budget shortfall caused by the pandemic lockdown, as well as calls from some to defund the police completely.
