Stefanik doesn't often talk about North Country crime

Apr 26, 2023 12:23 am

The New Republic reports that Rep. Elise Stefanik, who represents Rensselaer County and the North Country in Congress, often complains about crime, but not when it happens in her 21st Congressional District. Last week a 65-year-old homeowner, Kevin Monahan, fired two shots and killed 20-year-old Kaylin Gillis, who was in the passenger seat of a car that mistakenly pulled into a wrong driveway. Stefanik Tweeted once about how her “heart breaks for the tragedy of the loss of Kaylin Gillis’ young life,” but did not offer any legislative solutions. Last week was invited to join a House Judiciary Committee hearing that falsely framed New York as awash in crime. Even with more than 160 mass shootings this year in America, after the Nashville school shooting Stefanik called attempts for gun control “overly political," and again, did not offer any legislative solutions for the problem.
