Alarming Surge In Gun Shop Robberies As Democrats Fail To Enforce Law And Order
Chicago prosecutor Kim Foxx has dropped 25,183 felony cases.
Gun control they support would increase crime
What actions are those?
Their many actions decreasing crimes outweigh these
Obama administration gave Mexican cartels guns in ATF gun walking scandal
Obama administration wrote letters authorizing bump stock production
The great preponderance of Democrat actions since Obama support increased crime and guns in the hands of felons
In Democrat-controlled California, shoplifting less than $950 a day is a misdemeanor ( and often not prosecuted)
Democrat-controlled New York let's arrested perps walk with zero bail
Democrat sanctuary cities allow convicted violent illegal alien felons to remain in the population
Obama repeatedly glorified black criminals who were at fault in interactions with police, increasing racial animosity and discouraging law enforcement
Allowed fugitives to get guns
Obama administration didn't enforce gun laws on the books
Many Democrats politicians such as candidates for president have supported stricter gun control. Virginia where they control the legislature, is in the process of implementing stricter gun control.
however my point is, stricter gun control will also help increase crime. in the first place as soon as the bill becomes effective millions of legal gun owners will refuse to comply and will become by definition felons. this has happened already in New Jersey and Massachusetts and elsewhere.
also it should be pretty clear that these people are not currently criminals, and that their guns are in fact acting as a deterrent to crime.
here is a TruthSift diagram tentatively establishing that "stricter gun laws would do nothing to reduce homicides”
I don't see any actions they've taken to decrease crime, but if you find some post them as proofs of the refutation I'm targeting. if you think you've posted enough to outweigh the proofs of the topic statement then please challenge this refutation on that basis.
If you have actions that the Democrats did in this period that actually decreased crime, please post as proofs of this.
Then Holder in a bipartisan vote became the first Atty. Gen. in history to be held in contempt of Congress for the cover-up.
The Obama ministration wrote two letters to corporations certifying that if they built their bump stocks, they would be legal. if they hadn't written those letters, my guess is those corporations wouldn't of been able to raise capital to produce them. Las Vegas might've had less fatalities.
Yet strangely, the trump administration didn't seem to have any problem banning bump stocks. https://www.cnn.com/2018/12/18/politics/bump-stocks-ban/index.html
Democrats always talk about wanting stricter gun laws, yet looking at all the evidence of the actions they have taken since about the Obama administration, there are many examples where they took action tending to have the effect of increasing crime or putting guns in the hands of felons or supporting criminals and not much if anything they've done on the other side.
In Democrat-controlled California, shoplifting less than $950 a day is a misdemeanor ( and often not prosecuted).
passage of this law has led to a great increase in such crime.
The law in New York State now let's almost all arrested perps walk free with zero bail while awaiting trial.. this has already on several occasions led to things like: a violent thug being arrested for beating a woman, being released without bail, and being arrested again later in the day for beating a second woman.
California had a similar law but I think it's temporarily on hold pending a referendum.
Democrat sanctuary cities allow convicted violent illegal alien felons to remain in the population in many places across the country. this is in violation of federal law, so is a rather extreme step to take. And these convicted felons often commit other violent crimes as a result.
to add insult to injury, Nancy Pelosi and other Democrats spoke in defense of MS 13 when Donald Trump attacked them. MS 13 is a violent criminal gang known for torture murders, whose motto is literally " rape torture kill”. https://www.westernjournal.com/scorching-ad-pelosi-defend-ms-13/
neither of these actions seem like good politics. polls showed super majorities against MS 13 for example. so what is the motivation of Democrats for these actions, except to increase crime or provide themselves with shock troops.
Obama repeatedly glorified black criminals who were at fault in interactions with police, increasing racial animosity and discouraging law enforcement. For example, Michael Brown and Travon Martin. at the same time he ignored blacks who were actual victims of police brutality, like Eric Garner. the most apparent plausible reason for this, is if he had appealed on the basis of actual victims of police brutality like Garner, the whole country would've united against police brutality. he only chose cases which divided blacks from whites, increasing racial animosity.
he also managed to make a speech in Dallas that led to five Dallas policeman being assassinated later in the same day.
George Soros invested $30 million in promoting the Ferguson riots. https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2913625/Billionaire-George-Soros-spent-33MILLION-bankrolling-Ferguson-demonstrators-create-echo-chamber-drive-national-protests.html
in every city where there were major BLM riots, except New York and Garner, the police force responded by greatly decreasing enforcement in the black community. in particular this happened in St. Louis, Chicago, and Baltimore. this led to an immediate ( pretty much starting the day after the riot) and large jump in black on black homicides in those communities. in the last two years of Obama's administration, the national homicide rate was up 20%. statistically these policies involved more black homicides, than all lynchings in history.
On Wednesday, acting FBI deputy director David Bowdich testified during a Senate Judiciary Committee hearing that former President Barack Obama’s Department of Justice forced the FBI to delete over 500,000 fugitives, who had outstanding arrest warrants, from the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NICS).
More than 100,000 convicted felons or other “prohibited persons” tried to buy guns each year during President Barack Obama’s administration by lying on their applications, but the Justice Department only considered prosecuting about 30 to 40 people each year, according to a Daily Caller News Foundation investigation.
The Obama administration may have publicly aligned itself with anti-gun activists, but it consistently turned a blind eye to prosecute known criminals who tried to buy guns.
A June 2016 Justice Department Inspector General’s report revealed that between 2008 and 2015 the U.S. Attorneys office considered prosecuting “less than 32 people per year” for lying on form 4473, the federal application to buy guns.
