Woman Slain While Screaming 30 Minutes For Help In Gun Free NYC

"A Queens mom was hacked to death by her ex-boyfriend in a College Point apartment building early yesterday, screaming for help for more than a half-hour before neighbors called cops, authorities and witnesses said.

"Police found Ebony Garcia, 21, lying in a pool of blood inside her cousin's apartment on 121st Street near Cove Court just after 2:10 a.m. She died a short time later."

But at least the bad guy didn't use a gun. Too bad she wasn't allowed to have one in gun-free New York City. Her chances of being alive, had she defended herself with a firearm, would be much improved. This is truly a tragic story. And a wholly unnecessary outcome.
