The Democrat candidates for president are going crazy about all the ‘gun violence’ and are not to be deterred by facts. Since it is October the FBI has released their Uniform Crime Report for 2018. And not to burst said candidates bubble, but violent crime is down.
All violent crime is down 3.3% percent from last year and 9% below
the 2009 levels. It is also up 4.7% above the 2014 level. Aggravated
assaults accounted for 66.9% of violent crimes in 2018, robbery was at
23.4%, rape 8.4%, and murder 1.3%.
So why not enact stricter laws and penalties for the assaults and
leave the guns out. But no, the mental midgets in Congress want to
take our assault rifles. Isn’t it justified you ask? No.
Of the 14,123 murders in 2018 an estimated 10,256 involved firearms.
But that is misleading. Murders committed with rifles of any kind were
297 last year. Let that sink in. 10,256 murders by firearms, 297 with
rifles, including the assault rifles.
Yet many Democrats want to ban ‘assault rifles’? We’re told that last
year one was 5 times more likely to be killed with a knife than any
any rifle. The AR-15 and Ak-47 are rifles. Quit shipping the bull.
We’re getting tired of hearing it.
Instead, read the Constitution and follow your oath to protect and
defend it. Quit trying to railroad our president and do what you were
elected to do. If you want to get rid of gun violence do something to
get guns out of the hands of people who shoot other people. The
hocus pocus is getting old.
Comments are always welcome.
