Gun violence is up all over the country. And there’s no way that it’s going to get any better until the Democrats focus on the real problem: criminals. Too many liberal cities want to release the criminals back onto the streets without giving them jail time. And the result is that criminals feel as though they can get away with literal murder (and some of them have).
In New York City, crime is up. Gun violence is happening everywhere. And new mayor Eric Adams has actually blamed the issue on Joe Biden.
This week, Biden and Adams will meet in NYC to discuss gun violence.
This is like the blind leading the blind. Two Democrats can’t possibly talk about effective gun control since both believe that guns are responsible for shooting people.
We’ve said it before, and we’ll say it again. People are the ones responsible for pulling the trigger. And more gun control isn’t the answer because criminals will find a way to get guns illegally. Why? Criminals don’t follow the law – it’s why they’re criminals.
According to the White House, Biden and Adams will “discuss the Administration’s comprehensive strategy to combat gun crime, which includes historic levels of funding for cities and states to put more cops on the beat and invest in community violence prevention and intervention programs.”
Hmm, so putting more cops on the beat is the answer? We could have told you that two years ago…
The Democrats have been so insistent on following the cries of Black Lives Matter that they actually believed that defunding police departments were a good idea. And the moment they started to do that, crime started to skyrocket. So, it’s nice to see that the federal government has actually realized that police presence is critical to reducing crime.
There’s another component of the strategy that will be discussed, which includes “federal law enforcement efforts against illegal gun traffickers.”
Hmm, does the Biden administration realize that a significant amount of the illegal gun trafficking is because of the border being wide open? If the border were shut down and policed the way that it should have been all along, there wouldn’t be as many guns in the country.
This sounds like a lot of lip service, but we’ll see how it goes.
Eric Adams is new to the job of mayor, and he’s already getting a visit from President Biden. Either Biden thinks that he needs the help or Adams is already reaching out for help.
This is the problem with so many Democrats. They make impressive campaign promises to help them get elected. Then, when it comes to actually acting on those promises, they’re useless.
Since Adams has gotten into office, there have already been several high-profile shootings, including two NYPD officers being fatally shot in Harlem last week.
If NYC is serious about getting rid of their illegal gun problem, they have a large, uphill battle in front of them. It could be great, but they probably need to get some bipartisan thoughts on how to get it done.
And if Biden could lock down the borders to prevent even more illegal guns from making their way into NYC and the rest of the country, well, that would be great. Perhaps 2022 is the year where Kamala Harris finally discovers the root cause (insert eye-roll here).
