That’s actually not all that true. The crime (including murder) rate started to drop in New York in 1990, three years before Giuliani took office. It continued to drop through his two terms in office, and continued to drop during the terms of our next two mayors, Mike Bloomberg and Bill DiBlasio. In fact, this year, with Bill DiBlasio as mayor, the murder rate is expect to hit a historic low, coming in at under 300 murders, a fraction of the number of murders in 1990, which was something like 2,600. And a fraction, albeit a larger fraction, of the number of murders in even Giuliani’s best year.
Rudy was a terrible mayor. DiBlasio isn’t great, but he’s better than Rudy.
Also, as mayor, Giuliani wasn’t exactly an ally of the NRA and gun-rights advocates. He was a strong advocate for gun control, supported the assault weapons ban, criticized those states with less-restrictive gun laws that were the source of illegal guns for the NYC market, and, as mayor, had the City of New York sue gun manufacturers for selling guns into the illegal gun market in NYC.
Tangentially, he was also a strong supporter of the right to obtain an abortion, including publicly funded abortions.
Still think Rudy is your man?
