Throughout the country, in major Democrat cities and states, there has been a dramatic rise in crime.
More specifically, we have seen a dramatic rise in violent crimes.
According to White House press secretary Jen Psaki, this is actually a gun problem, not a crime problem.
Blame the Tool
If someone has a car accident, the driver is to blame, not the car.
If a doctor botches a surgery, the doctor is blamed, not the scalpel or medical equipment.
Yet, for some reason, when it comes to crime, specifically crimes that occur with a gun, the gun is to blame, not the individual holding it.
It is that narrative that Democrats have and continue to use to explain away rising crime throughout the country.
When Psaki was hit with a question about the rising crime rates around the country, she deflected away from the true cause, stating, “Well, I would say, certainly, there is a guns problem.
“And that’s one of the reasons that we have proposed and now are implementing funding for community violence prevention programs across the country.”
She failed to address the fact that many of the cities with rising crime rates have dramatically reduced funding for police.
She also failed to address the fact that many of these cities already have the toughest gun laws in the country.
Finally, she failed to address many of these cities that are now struggling to even put police on the street due to so many local forces having morale issues and staffing issues due to the rhetoric from Democrats during the Trump administration.
You can have the toughest gun laws around, but when you don’t enforce existing laws, allow people to slip through the cracks because of lazy administrators, and you don’t prosecute criminals when you catch them, you are going to have problems.
So, Ms. Psaki, you could not be more wrong here… we don’t have a guns problem, we have a crime problem, and it is largely because Democrats have ostracized police and refuse to admit criminals need to be jailed and prosecuted.
