“America Doesn’t Have a Gun Problem, It Has a Democrat Problem”

I decided there was no way to improve on Daniel’s title.

Lanza and Newtown are comforting aberrations. They allow us to take refuge in the fantasy that homicides in America are the work of the occasional serial killer practicing his dark art in one of those perfect small towns that always show up in murder mysteries or Stephen King novels. They fool us into thinking that there is something American about our murder rate that can be traced to hunting season, patriotism and bad mothers.

But go to Chicago or Baltimore. Go where the killings really happen and the illusion comes apart.

There is a war going on in America between gangs of young men who bear an uncanny resemblance to their counterparts in Sierra Leone or El Salvador. They live like them, they fight for control of the streets like them and they kill like them.

America’s horrific murder rate is a result of the transformation of major American cities into Sierra Leone, Somalia, Rwanda and El Salvador. Gun violence largely consists of criminals killing criminals.

As David Kennedy, the head of the Center for Crime Prevention and Control, put it, “The majority of homicide victims have extensive criminal histories. This is simply the way that the world of criminal homicide works. It’s a fact.”

America is, on a county by county basis, not a violent country, just as it, on a county by county basis, did not vote for Obama. It is being dragged down by broken cities full of broken families whose mayors would like to trash the Bill of Rights for the entire country in the vain hope that national gun control will save their cities, even though gun control is likely to be as much help to Chicago or New Orleans as the War on Drugs.

Obama’s pretense that there needs to be a national conversation about rural American gun owners is a dishonest and cynical ploy that distracts attention from the real problem that he and politicians like him have sat on for generations.

America does not have a gun problem. Its problem is in the broken culture of cities administered by Democrats. We do not need to have a conversation about gun violence. We need to have a conversation about Chicago. We need to have a conversation about what the Democrats have done to our cities.

But…but…but…how the hell is THAT going to help get more Democrat Socialists elected?

  1. We also need to have a conversation about what the Rove Republicans have done to our cities – and our country – as well. Or do you think that Giuliani is a Democrat?

    The “two” parties are nothing more than opposite ends of the same steaming turd. Once you admit that, everything else on the political – and governmental – scene makes sense.

  2. Funny how that works, innit ?

    All these big cities that certainly, after a half century of exclusively democrat rule, ought to be Heaven-on-Earth are actually third-world principalities barely held in control by deficit spending bribery.

    And yes, as things now stand, republicans are somewhere between complicit and active supporters of this lunacy, in return for their getting a share of that sweet big-government pie.

    Well, treason might be a better word than lunacy, but you get my drift ….
