NYC Mayor-Elect Eric Adams on Rittenhouse: What Are 17-Year-Olds Doing with Guns in This Country?

‘We have an over-proliferation of guns’


ADAMS: “47 percent of New Yorkers in Brooklyn speak a language other than English at home. We are a diverse city. We live together every day together but there are outside entities that want to come in and disrupt our city. We can't allow that to happen also in our country. But also, we missed, there was a 17-year-old who had a gun that he could not legally buy but he was able to carry, shot people that he went into that community to focus on. But we also had a 17-year-old here in this city who shot a 22-year-old young man, promising young man. So, what am I saying? What are 17-year-olds doing with guns in this country? And we stay on the high end and debate one trial, I’m debating America’s on trial. We have an over-proliferation of guns. And our children can get guns and not laptops, iPads, computer things that they need. That is my focus."
