The Trends Journal warned subscribers last year when governments launched the COVID War that the draconian lockdown mandates would destroy the lives and livelihoods of hundreds of millions. And as Gerald Celente said, “When people lose everything and have nothing left to lose, they lose it.
They lost it. 
Violent crime keeps spiking. 
And the New York Governor who got paid $5 million to write a book on how he fought the COVID War—and with his Executive Orders locked down the state, destroying hundreds of thousands of lives and businesses, thus causing street violence to rise—has now declared himself the person who will stop the crime wave. 
In a press release on 6 July, New York’s Governor Andrew Cuomo declared “gun violence” to be a “disaster emergency,” and announced special measures he is taking to address the issue, which he said is proving deadlier than COVID.
The governor of the state with some of the most stringent gun-control laws in the U.S. declared that the wave of shootings plaguing New York City represents a nationwide problem, but one that “someone has to step up and address…because our future depends on it.” 
The country’s major cities recorded a 30 percent increase in homicides in 2020. And crime has risen sharply in New York and across the nation since last summer. As we had forecast when the COVID War began and draconian lockdowns and restrictions imposed to deal with COVID-19; launched by politicians such as Cuomo in March 2020, there would be a sharp rise in crime. 
Others also note that a case can be made for laying at least part of the blame for New York’s crime increase directly at the governor’s own feet; Cuomo has been a champion and facilitator of “bail reform,” which has resulted in more and more criminals released and back on the street within hours of being arrested. 
Waste of Money
Cuomo’s new measures include the formation of a special police unit to fight trafficking in firearms. He also announced an investment of $138 million in intervention and prevention, a part of which is a $76 million jobs program for young people deemed most at risk. 
The governor will be appointing a special coordinator, attached to the state’s health services, to work with police, prisons and social services to prevent gun violence.
He also signed two new laws into effect, one of which claims to prevent those already wanted for crimes from obtaining a weapon. Note that most criminals obtain guns through illegal channels, which is why more and more stringent gun laws are largely ineffective in keeping guns out of criminals’ hands.
The second new law (a “public nuisance liability” law) is more controversial, in that it circumvents the exemption from liability that gun manufacturers have enjoyed under federal law. Its intent is to make it easier for shooting victims to sue gun makers and dealers. 
Opponents have said its long-term intent is to drive the firearms industry out of business, and have compared it to suing General Motors or your local dealer because someone driving a Chevy went through a stop sign and hit your car.
