NEW YORK - NOVEMBER 23: Members of the Guardian Angels attend a news conference and candlelight vigil as part of a National Day of Outrage in New York and other major U.S. cities on November 23, 2009 in the Bronx borough of New York City.

Al Sharpton and his National Action Network called for a day where attention is drawn to gun violence, which they say is now at epidemic levels in major cities across America.

Ripping New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio as “apathetic” amid a spate of anti-Semitic attacks, Curtis Sliwa’s Guardian Angels is starting patrols in Brooklyn on Sunday, according to NBC News.

“These attacks are taking place, and the cops have not been proactive at all,” Sliwa, who founded his private, unarmed crime-prevention group in 1979, told NBC News. “It comes from City Hall and the mayor. He’s been just apathetic.

“We’re a visual deterrence in our red berets and our red satin jackets,” Sliwa told NBC News. “Nobody’s going to commit an attack when we’re around.

“We’ll physically restrain the persons responsible, make a citizen’s arrest, and hold them until the police arrive,” he added, per the report.

The patrols, which will start at noon in Crown Heights and expand to Williamsburg and Borough Park later in the day, come hours after five people were wounded in a stabbing attack at a Hanukkah party at a rabbi’s house in upstate New York, according to the report.

There have been eight attacks on Jews in Brooklyn since Dec. 13, the New York Police Department reports.

“We have no tolerance for anti-Semitism in New York City,” Mayor Bill de Blasio’s press office responded in a statement Saturday, per NBC News.

“The best police department in the world has increased deployment in Crown Heights, Boro Park, and Williamsburg, and has launched a new intelligence unit to prevent hate crimes from occurring. We will continue to work hand in hand with the community to keep our city safe.”

    Thank you to the Guardian Angels, but it’s time that the 2nd Amendment be allowed. The right to own a gun to protect yourself is here. The liberal democratic ilk are the BAD guys, and their Illegal aliens, hateful religious freaks have access to guns. This is tyranny. The 2nd Amendment is OUR Homeland security.

    GOD BLESS PRESIDENT TRUMP! GOD BLESS THE USA!
