Media Silence Is Deafening About Important Gun News
Murder and violent crime rates were supposed to soar after the Supreme Court struck down gun control laws in Chicago and Washington, D.C.
Politicians predicted disaster. “More handguns in the District of Columbia will only lead to more handgun violence,” Washington’s Mayor Adrian Fenty warned the day the court made its decision.
Chicago’s Mayor Daley predicted that we would “go back to the Old West, you have a gun and I have a gun and we’ll settle it in the streets . . . .”
The New York Times even editorialized this month about the Supreme Court’s “unwise” decision that there is a right for people “to keep guns in the home.”
But Armageddon never happened. Newly released data for Chicago shows that, as in Washington, murder and gun crime rates didn’t rise after the bans were eliminated — they plummeted. They have fallen much more than the national crime rate.
Why is it that the gun control lobby never wants to admit that the evidence doesn’t support their arguments? Every time gun control restrictions are eased and the citizens are allowed to exercise their 2nd Amendment rights as they should be, the data shows a corresponding reduction in crime rates. And, at the same time, whenever gun control laws are enacted, there is a corresponding rise in violent crime. Given that there is a clear correlation between the People’s right to bare arms and lower crime rates, at some point honest people have to accept the inevitable conclusion that the people who claim to want gun control because they care about high crime rates are simply lying.
But that leaves the obvious question as to why they would want to take our guns when they know it will lead to more of us losing our lives? 😉
