Much to the chagrin of modern day liberals, you can’t blame all of America’s problems on Republicans.
But that hasn’t stopped them from trying, especially on matters related to gun violence.
Any time a deranged rogue gunman commits a heinous mass shooting, liberals waste no time demanding that guns be banned, and that Republicans are the ones responsible for yet another act of senseless gun violence.
This analysis fails to address the real issues in many ways, such as the mental health of the shooter.
But besides that, statistics simply don’t support that Republicans are the ones to blame. The gun policies of the GOP don’t increase gun crime.
Rather, it’s the cities with some of the strictest and most Democrat gun control policies that have been contributing to the national murder rate.
From The Daily Wire:
According to a new report, across the country, the murder rate rose 8% over last year, but this is primarily due to a handful of cities — Chicago, Baltimore, and Houston.
And all three of those cities have been run exclusively by Democrats for decades.
Murder rates are not the only thing higher in blue territory.
Income inequality, collapsing infrastructure, and police brutality are all issues the left claims to fight against, yet are all more present in cities and states lacking Republican representatives.
Several things are responsible for this, but ultimately it boils down to the fact that Democrats advertise policies that are great at getting votes, but begin to collapse the moment they are implemented.
Democrats are more focused on virtue signaling to the public by supporting fringe movements (Black Lives Matter, Antifa, etc.) rather than trying to solve the multiple crises in their cities.
Any hope that Chicago, Baltimore and Houston have of a better future hinges on the residents’ ability to vote in experienced Republican leaders, who will address the real problems facing these cities and not imaginary ones.
