In NYC, gun violence continues unleashed in 2022 especially with young gunmen and victimsputting up a great challenge to the new mayor Eric Adamswho since taking office in January has encountered obstacles within his own Democratic party and Black Lives Matter (BLM) leaders in dealing with the crisis.

In July homicides experienced a 35% increase compared to the same month last year. Shooting victims and weapons incidents also rose nearly 10%.
