Yes…, our crime problem starts with criminals, and the democrats have chosen to support the criminals over innocent law abiding citizens.
Howard Kurtz of Fox News reports that, “Biden moves on guns as surging crime has Democrats on the defensive.”
Not quite, Howard. I’m sure the democrats don’t feel their “on the defensive” at all. As a matter of fact, things are going nicely according to plan as far as they’re concerned.
What we’re seeing, regarding homicides, shootings, and other crimes, is A DIRECT RESULT OF DEMOCRAT POLICIES regarding the elimination of bail requirements, letting violent criminals back out into the community, district attorneys choosing not to prosecute violent criminals or any criminals for that matter, the defunding of police, and the limiting of police response options and general support.
Kurtz continues, “As the carnage continues, the rise in urban crime is ‘staggering’ and ‘sobering.’”
“Carnage” is a good choice of words!
The truth is you’d be much, much, much safer opting to do a tour of duty in Afghanistan right now, as opposed to spending some time in Chicago!
In fact, this could apply to a long list of democrat run American cities.”
The democrats like to say “this isn’t a red or a blue issue,” but, I’m sorry…, this most definitely a blue (democrat) created problem that they don’t want to address.
“That’s not some police commissioner or Republican lawmaker decrying the surge in violence. It’s President Biden’s deputy attorney general, Lisa Monaco.”
I’m sorry, Lisa, but it appears you’re just not cut-out for this job!
You may want to start looking for a new line of work.
Kurtz continues by saying, “The spike in homicides and other major crimes is becoming a political albatross for the Democrats, who run nearly all these major cities. And that’s why Biden gave a crime speech Wednesday when he’d rather be focusing on vaccines or infrastructure or just about anything else.”
Actually, he’d rather be having some warm milk and cookies, before getting ready to go “nite-nite,” but I digress.
“Unfortunately for the president, and urban America, he has few tools at his disposal, which is why he’s concentrating mainly on guns, despite his failure to get any legislative traction on that subject or police reform. The Justice Department is creating several strike forces to go after illegal gun trafficking in the largest cities.”
No, Howard…, the reason he’s “concentrating mainly on guns” is because that’s what the progressives, otherwise known as anti-Americans, want to concentrate on. They want to concentrate on removing guns from the hands of decent, law abiding people, by trying to create all of these new restrictive gun laws.
Just a little reminder here…, CRIMINALS DON’T OBEY LAWS!
Shooting someone, killing someone, armed robbery, etc, are already against the law! Adding another restrictive law will only effect people who are already obeying the law and not the criminals.
Oh…, and additionally, a law is only as effective as the resulting punishment for breaking it.
Again, a law is only as effective as the resulting punishment for breaking it.
If you really want to stop gun crime, all you have to do is establish a policy where if you commit a crime with a gun, you get a mandatory 20 year sentence…, minimum.
Most of the people committing gun crimes have long rap sheets and a history of breaking the law.
The real problem is democrats are willing to accept the costs these criminals impose on our communities as a trade-off for an excuse to take guns out of the hands of law abiding people, which will eventually allow them to rule with impunity over the American people.
They’re, the democrat Nazis are, jealous of China’s ability to dictate everything to their people, with no fear of repercussions.
“Biden’s workmanlike speech mostly repeated talking points on gun control (the sellers are ‘merchants of death,’ and we need a ‘ban on assault weapons and high-capacity magazines’).”
Is that what that was, “workmanlike?”
Struggling to coherently read someone else’s words from a teleprompter, while looking and sounding like you missed your nap, is far from “workmanlike,” and much closer to embarrassing and uninspired.
