Democrats on the House Judiciary Committee spent Monday’s Manhattan field hearing blaming guns, not the criminals behind them, for the nation’s crime epidemic.
The committee held a field hearing in Manhattan as New York City deteriorates from an American centerpiece of capital ingenuity into a treacherous urban jungle where far-left prosecutors allow criminals to control the streets.
“Today’s hearing is about the administration of justice, and keeping communities safe, something that has always been a central focus of the House Judiciary Committee,” opened House Judiciary Chairman Jim Jordan.

The Ohio Republican went on to condemn Manhattan DA Alvin Bragg for prioritizing political witch hunts over street safety. Bragg’s office unsealed the first indictment of a former president this month with 34 charges against Donald Trump related to 2016 hush-money payments to a porn actress.
“Rather than enforcing the law, the [Manhattan] DA is using his office to do the bidding of left-wing campaign funders,” Jordan said, outlining the crime statistics that plague Bragg’s New York City constituents. Major crime spiked 22 percent under Bragg’s first year in office, including a 30 percent rise in subway crime, according to the New York Times. The paper reported Saturday that less than 330 people were responsible for almost a third of all shoplifting arrests last year.
