Lack Of Gun Control Is NOT Reason For Rise In Crime
Lack Of Gun Control Is NOT Reason For Rise In Crime
Not enough gun control. That, according to the vaunted “experts” in the Biden basement dwelling White House, is the reason for the rise in crime we are seeing all over the United States.
Yes indeed, you heard it here first from good ole Jen ‘circle back’ Psaki.
Oh REALLY? Let’s review the past fourteen months shall we? What has happened during all that time? Well, yes. The idiotic lockdown, but that’s not what I’m talking about.
How about all those riots? How about all the looting and destruction in cities all over the United States that has caused billions in damage? How about the fact that many of those looting rioting THUGS walked out of jail scot-free thanks to Kamala and her ilk who ponied up millions for bail funds across the country.
What about Democrats and their asinine defund the police movement? Crime has skyrocketed because of that as well. Seattle is a cesspool. San Francisco is a pit of feces, discarded syringes, blatant daylight robberies, and homelessness run rampant. Chicago and St. Louis crime rates are out of control, while the mayors bloviate about how fewer police are needed. New York has de Blasio contributing to the crime rate with his grandiosely stupid ideas.
“When de Blasio and his police commissioner, Dermot Shea, dismantled the city’s hugely successful anti-gun street crime units, when the City Council embraced the defund rhetoric, and when Gov. Cuomo and the Legislature bought into the anti-cop zeitgeist and obnoxiously did away with most bail, the message to law-abiding New Yorkers became clear: You’re on your own, chumps.
What has happened since then? Crime is up, WAY up, and the anti-Semitism hate crimes have risen exponentially.
New York is burning: On the Upper East Side this week, a gang waving Palestinian flags attacked Jewish bystanders, while protestors on 13th Street marched by cheerfully shouting “we are terrorists.”
Not to be outdone, yet more hoodlums stormed Manhattan’s Diamond District, known for its large concentration of Jews, flinging a firework at a woman, and hitting others.
If you’re wondering why so much anti-Semitic violence could explode so suddenly and so forcefully, you’ve only to look back to the events of last summer, when the Black Lives Matter movement set fire to one American city after another.
Do you know what that does to people who see criminals walk away with zero repercussions? They start figuring out ways to defend themselves. A great many have now exercised their Second Amendment rights and have purchases guns and ammunition. A significant number of those purchases are from first-time buyers.
“Flaugher said the industry is simply struggling to keep up. He said three main factors have driven sales and continue to drive them beyond the industry’s ability to expand supply. The first was pandemic-induced safety concerns that drove millions of Americans to purchase guns for the first time. The second was the increased participation in recreational shooting and hunting during the lockdowns. The third was concern over new gun-control legislation after President Joe Biden won the 2020 election and Democrats who favor new restrictions took control of the Senate.
“We have certainly experienced unprecedented demand for all categories of ammunition over the past year—rimfire, centerfire rifle and pistol, as well as our shotshell products,” Flaugher said. “Over the past year, we’ve seen more than 21 million firearms sold, with over 9 million to first-time gun buyers. This is an incredible number.
In a large number of cases, the backlog is now into TWO YEARS and beyond. It’s due to the demand as well as component shortage.
Jen Psaki, de Blasio, Lori Lightfoot, and other Democrats would have us believe that MORE gun control will cause crime to plummet.
That my friends, is a tanker load of horse shit.
We have record gun sales and new gun owners but not the crime to match. What we have is a judicial problem, lowered deterrents for repeat offenders via her party's policies, reduced police morale, and criminals emboldened by "defund cops" talk from her party. https://t.co/mkbHhdV5Ex— Dana Loesch (@DLoesch) May 24, 2021
The Biden Administration is hosting George Floyd’s family at the White House and is pushing for the embassies to fly the Black Lives Matter flag. Do you know what that does? That emboldens the rioting, looting thug CRIMINALS even more.
Police have been ordered to stand down, let American citizens get attacked, and let the cities burn. And how does the Biden Administration respond?
What interests me is the language. She won’t use the term “crime”. It’s now “community violence.” And committed by guns, not people with guns. Clowns. https://t.co/paKjCWg8A2— Andrew Sullivan (@sullydish) May 24, 2021
Memo to the Biden Administration. The “community violence” of which you speak of is and has been perpetrated by CRIMINALS! Antifa and Black Lives Matter criminals and grifters.
Not one single law-abiding citizen with a gun has destroyed businesses by looting and setting fire to them. Not one single law-abiding gun owning citizen has attacked Jews in New York, nor have they attacked Asians.
Your push for gun control, your push to defund the police while allowing BLM and Antifa full-rein has led to a great unease in this country. The run on guns and ammunition is the result.
Yet here you are telling us that the crime problem is because of law-abiding gun owners, and once you take our guns away, criminals will magically disappear.
The Biden Administration sure does enjoy living on planet denial. Meanwhile Americans of all types will continue to arm, train, and if it becomes necessary, defend themselves against the very criminals that the Biden Administration looks up to.
