The rise in violent crime was a hot topic during the last debate among the Democratic candidates for mayor Wednesday. 

"I am committed to getting 10-thousand guns off the streets of New York and I know many agree with me gun buybacks work," Kathryn Garcia said.

Others like Maya Wiley and Dianne Morales said they both support significantly reducing the police budget and redirecting the money to social services.
