Tammy Bruce: If Guns Are So Readily Available Everywhere Else, Why Is It That Chicago Is A Bloodbath?

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

She has a great point

And her article

Why is the desolation and violence in America’s inner cities only getting worse? That question takes on an even more urgent implication considering the Democrats have been in charge of those cities for generations.

Now, during a time of pandemic and general Democratic Party panic during an election year in which it’s becoming more and more apparent, the instinct of the incompetent and corrupt politicians running these cities cannot take any responsibility for their failure and destruction caused by their policies.

The blame game has taken on an entirely new art with Democrats in charge of the disasters unfolding in front of us.

Consider the great American city of Chicago, Illinois. Yes, it’s a city that has had a problem with gun violence for decades. What feeds that problem, as it does in many other liberal urban areas, is the fact that Chicago has “gun control,” making it less easy for law-abiding citizens to defend themselves, while becoming too inviting for those who wish to do harm to a community. (snip)

[Chicago mayor Lori Lightfoot] told CNN, “The fact of the matter is our gun problem is related to the fact that we have too many illegal guns on our street, 60% of which come from states outside of Illinois. We are being inundated with guns from states that have virtually no gun control, no background checks, no ban on assault weapons, that is hurting cities like Chicago.”

When Ms. Lightfoot blames guns from out of state, one must ask, if it’s because there’s no gun control in those other places, why is it only Chicago that has become a blood-soaked hellscape? She can’t answer that question because the answer would indict liberal policies in every Democratically-held city.

It’s a good point. Why is it that the most dangerous cities are those run by Democrats, especially those with hardcore gun restrictions that only affect law abiding citizens? Why do the areas run by Republicans not have these problems? Heck, why do places run by non-crazy non-progressive Democrats not have these problems? We don’t have problems like this here in Raleigh, but up in Durham it’s a lot more dangerous.

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, New York Democrat, caused a disturbance a few weeks ago by suggesting the same thing during a social media townhall. About the rise of violence in New York, she referred to the economic crisis, unemployment and rent concerns.

The implication was those who are poor or struggling, seamlessly move from being normal, law-abiding people into mindless criminals. It’s an insult to every American, and exposes the contempt with which leftist politicians hold the average citizen.

No one should be surprised that Democrats hold citizens in contempt.

What is undeniable to everyone, apparently except Democratic Party leadership, is the incendiary rhetoric condemning the police, and law enforcement in general, is fueling the willingness of marginal anarchist and Marxist groups to engage in violent mob action in urban areas run by Democrats. Why? Because for some reason the mob feels safer in blue cities. It is the literal and figurative taking of a knee in front of the mob by Democrats signaling to the malevolent everywhere that now is the time to cause mayhem and destruction.

    Because gun control doesn’t work. Real gun control is using both hands.
