PBA PRESIDENT BLAMES REDUCTION IN ILLEGAL GUNS
BEING CONFISCATED ON ANTI-COP LAWS

 

PBA president Lynch said:

“No one should be surprised that fewer guns are being taken off the street while the number of shootings increases. There is an anti-police atmosphere in our City where our legislators are more concerned about making unnecessary and misguided laws that make an officer’s job more difficult and dangerous than they are about getting the illegal guns off the street.  It seems like our members have more personal risk from doing their jobs than the bad guys do for committing crimes.”
