As you probably suspected, Joe Biden is blaming the spike in violent crime in big cities on the Second Amendment and legal gun owners, NOT on Democratic mayors.
It has nothing to do with Black Lives Matter or “Defund the Police” or criminal justice reform or the “racial justice” movement even though we watched as crime began to spike in St. Louis after the Ferguson riots and Baltimore after the Freddie Gray riots and Portland after the city exploded in violence last June. It has nothing to do with emptying the prisons of thousands of violent felons or “progressive” prosecutors.
“President Biden in remarks Wednesday said his crime prevention strategy would focus on strengthening background checks, banning assault weapons and high-capacity magazines, and boosting community policing.
Biden met with state and local leaders and law enforcement officials ahead of his remarks to talk crime prevention strategy, amid a surge in violence in cities across the U.S.
Both Biden and Attorney General Merrick Garland, who spoke before him, pointed to a historic rise in crime in the summertime, and said that rise “may be more pronounced” as the nation comes out of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The White House has insisted curbing gun violence is key to tamping down a “staggering” surge of crime across the U.S.
“Talk to most responsible gun owners they’ll tell you there’s no possible justification for having 100 rounds in a magazine,” Biden said. …”
The “staggering” surge in crime has a simple cause.
Merrick Garland and the corporate media are waging a relentless War on the Police while hardened criminals are being sprung from prison and “progressive” district attorneys are turning a blind eye to mob violence. No one in the right mind wants to be the next Derek Chauvin.
