In heavily gun-controlled New York City, fifteen people were shot on Juneteenth.
Of the fifteen people hit, five of them passed away.
There were at least ten separate shooting incidents reported throughout the city on the federal holiday.
"At 2:30 p.m. a 27-year-old with a gunshot wound to the head was discovered," Breitbart reports. "The person who found him tried to put pressure on the wound to keep him from bleeding out, but the young man succumbed to his injuries."
"Outside a bodega on White Plains Road in Williamsbridge," a 48-year-old man was found "outside with a gunshot wound to his back and transported to a hospital where he died."
Additionally, a 38-year-old man was "shot and killed outside 230 West 140th Street" in Harlem.
Another tragic report from the day, a 16-year-old boy "in the Bedford Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn" was shot and killed.
Police don't have any suspects, and no motive has been discovered.
The fifth fatality from Juneteenth was 56-year-old Kevin Roberts, who was found sitting in a wheelchair with multiple gunshot wounds "on Simpson Street in the Longwood section of the Bronx at around 11 p.m."
Everytown for Gun Safety has named New York as the number 2 state in the United States for gun law strength.
New York is second to California in gun control.
There is an "assault weapons" ban in New York, as well as a "high capacity" magazine ban, a red flag law, universal background checks, gun storage laws, a ban on bulk gun purchases, and a handgun licensing requirement.
Heavy-handed gun control isn't working so well for New York. I wonder what they will try next.
It's important to share the news to spread the truth. Most people won't.
