More Lethal Help from the Federal Government- More Gun Control
There were 27 shootings in Baltimore over the Memorial day weekend. 19 people were robbed in New York City’s central park. Chicago had 12 people shot to death and an additional 47 shot and wounded over the same weekend. Our oh-so-caring Obama administration had to show remorse for this flood of blue-city blood. Josh Earnest, the White House press secretary, called for more gun control.
Earnest said, “Obviously there’s some common sense things we could do – certainly passage of some gun safety laws in Congress that could keep guns out of the hands of criminals would be one thing that we could do to try to limit the violence.” Also, the government could improve the lives of citizens living in poverty stricken areas of our inner cities.
Really? I’m impressed that Earnest was able to say that with a straight face and not a blush of shame.
Look at the record in Baltimre. We are talking about the bluest of the blue cities that have lived under strict democrat control for decades. These slices of democrat heaven have driven out industry, driven out dads, and driven out honest hard working families by leaving them defenseless against the criminals. Baltimore’s history proves it.
Regulations and taxes drove companies out of Baltimore. Unemployment led to addiction and fatherlessness. Crime soared. The government outlawed honest civilians owning guns, though the thugs hardly noticed. Disarmed and defenseless working-class parents couldn’t protect themselves or their families. They fled this democrat heaven for the safer suburbs or the south.
Repeat that same history in Detroit, New York City and Chicago. They epitomize the democrat machine from business regulation, kickbacks from unionized government workers, to gun control. The bluest of the blue.
Now we see the recent wrinkle of a democrat administration flooding our inner cities with immigrants and gangs while they propose a kinder and gentler form of policing. Look at the violent crime statistics again. That sweet sounding crime control isn’t working.
When their policies fail in one city, they demand we force their failed policies on every city across the US. Well, that is one way for the democrats to hide their mistakes.
The big government dems have run out of scapegoats. The president’s spokesman needs a distraction so he blamed guns. The Obama administration ignored that these violent blue cities are gun-control heaven. They ignored that criminals will ignore the next gun law just as the criminals ignored the last 23 thousand gun laws the democrats passed.
The media just nods at the next sound-bite and never questions a failed policy sitting right in front of them.
I noticed we don’t see violence like this even in a riot among Texas biker gangs. No, to really shoot up your neighborhood you need a deep blue mayor in a city that disarms honest citizens. That is a clue.
The rest of us have learned something from the ugly political history of Detroit and Illinois. Unfortunately, the Obama administration wants to double down on stupid and propose more gun control. Most of the media will encourage them.
It is up to us. President Obama, stop helping us already! Any more government help will kill us.
Let my country free!
