Guns and gun crime are the new climate change: those who know nothing about the subject are suddenly “experts.”
I call this faux expertise Albert Gore-itis, and I discuss it at length in my upcoming first book, 10 Warning Signs Your Child is Becoming a Democrat.
College pottery majors and donkey cheese-eating, Che Guevera T-shirt-wearing trust fund babies fancy themselves firearms gurus (FYI, donkey cheese is the world’s most expensive). That doesn’t really bother me as much as the lying-by-withholding that the DMIC (Democrat Media Industrial Complex) and Redcoat gun-grabbing organizations (funded by millionaires and billionaires, such as former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg) engage in when discussing guns and gun crime.
Democrat policies kill
America does not have a gun crime epidemic. There are, however, epidemics in many locales and cities. Who do you think runs the vast majority of those cities?
Lobbyists for firearm manufacturers?
The vast majority of those cities have been run by Democrats for decades upon decades.
Here are the top 20 cities with the highest gun murder rates in the U.S. per capita. Of these, every city except the last one, Tulsa, has a Democrat majority in the mayoralty and City Council or Board of Aldermen.
Here are the non-fatal shootings top 20 per capita. Notice the overlap of several cities; the cities on the non-fatal list absent on the murder list are also Democrat-run cities, except for the last one, Jacksonville.
Here’s a sampling of five longtime Democrat empires (all days are consecutive and uninterrupted). All appear in the top 20 lists:
1. St. Louis: only Democrat mayors; 90% Democrat City Council; 15,000 days.
2. Baltimore: only Democrat mayors and only Democrat City Council; 18,000 days.
3. Philadelphia: only Democrat mayors; 90% Democrat City Council; 20,000 days.
4. Detroit: only Democrat mayors; 90% Democrat City Council; 22,000 days.
5. Chicago: only Democrat mayors; 90% Democrat City Council; 30,000 days.
The Democrats have ruled Chicago for longer than Stalin ruled the USSR, the Castros in Cuba, and the Kims in North Korea, and for longer than slavery was legal in the U.S.
Exhausted yet? There’s more.
These are America’s top 10 most violent cities, according to FBI data. Violent crimes include homicides, gun violence, gangs, pedophilia, and robberies.
Every city is majority Democrat-controlled. Several of the cities on the FBI’s list also appear on the aforementioned murder and non-fatal shootings lists. Because the FBI’s ranking is per capita, several cities such as Chicago and Newark (only Democrat mayors; 90% City Council; 23,000 days) are absent.
Still with me? St. Louis, Baltimore, Detroit, and New Orleans crack the top 50 for most dangerous cities on the planet. New Orleans has elected only Democrat mayors for the last 55,000 consecutive days; the United States as a nation has existed for 88,000 days. New Orleans’s city council is, in theory, nonpartisan; I’ll let you conclude how nonpartisan it is.
