Mr. Police Superintendent
Any number of Left-Wing Liberals (yes I can define tautology but I enjoy alliteration) including the other day Chicago’s new police superintendent ( which in Chicago means police chief not the guy who unstops toilets and collects the rent at police headquarters) said this:
“Now I want you to connect one more dot on that chain of the African American history in this country, and tell me if I’m crazy: Federal gun laws that facilitate the flow of illegal firearms into our urban centers across this country, that are killing our black and brown children.”
Now I took the quote from Huff Post so I’m not responsible for its accuracy but use it because this exact point of view is very common in the democrat party or as they define themselves today the Gender Identity Is One Of The Major Problems Facing America Today crowd.
The argument being that firearms flow into urban centers from the rurality (as anywhere outside certain city lines is termed on the upper east side of Manhattan) and cause the murder of and mayhem visited upon minority countrymen and countrywomen living there by their fellow minority countrymen and countrywomen living there.
Unanswered though is the question of why if the rural gun-toting areas of the country have more guns laying around than the average household in Chicago (and so according to Chicago’s new police superintendent are inclined to export them to Chicago where black and brown people can kill each other) there isn’t more murder in these places. Which there isn’t. In fact for the most of the gun-toting country, that is those portions of the nation outside of the decades long democrat party controlled urban areas, the crime rate is lower than say England with its Orwellian anti-gun laws.
And believe it or not Mr. police superintendent there are also millions of black and brown people in those areas who don’t shoot one another or anybody else.
So the problem isn’t guns – it’s you and your kind.
