The number of shootings in New York City has increased during the past several weeks after months of declines, with several shootings a day keeping police busy, particularly in Brooklyn, the latest NYPD statistics show.

The NYC Police Department blames it on increased gang activity of late. So, uh, I guess that means that gang members and other criminals don’t seem to be obeying all these gun control laws.
