Speaker of the House, Nancy Pelosi, is getting old and crazy.
That might explain why she opposes basic security measures along our Southern border. It might also explain why she is ranting about an “epidemic” of gun violence in our country.
But basic facts and statistics prove her wrong. So, very wrong.
I don’t have to tell you that Democrats hate the Second Amendment. But it’s not for the reasons they claim. Democrats often point to gun violence as the reason they want to limit—or perhaps eliminate altogether—Americans’ right to bear arms. Their stupid reasoning is that with less access to guns, fewer shootings and deaths will occur.
We know that’s a lie. Gun free zones are the most at risk for crime, gun violence, and mass shootings. In fact, when criminals know that there will be armed civilians, ready to shoot back, they are nowhere to be found.
Yet Democrats continue to push the idea that easy access to firearms is what causes gun violence. They never point the finger at the actual reason—the shooter. They never focus on why someone kills. And they conveniently ignore the ongoing murders in cities like Chicago—which happens to have extremely strict gun laws (and are run by Democrats).
Recently aged and confused Nancy Pelosi attacked President Trump when she said there is an epidemic of gun violence in our country. She even suggested a future liberal president might declare a state of emergency to take away our guns.
“Want to talk about a national emergency? Let’s talk about today, the one year anniversary of another manifestation of the epidemic of gun violence in America. That’s a national emergency. Why don’t you declare that emergency Mr. President? I wish you would. But a Democratic president can do that. A Democratic President can declare emergencies as well.” [Source: Breitbart]
Okay, let’s first mention the obvious. Pelosi just told Americans that a future Democratic President will use a state of emergency to take our guns away. Umm… good job Nance! You just made sure a Democrat will never be elected president again!
Beyond that, though she is ignoring a few basic facts. Most importantly, the fact that the overall murder rate in America has plummeted over the last 30 years. Even as gun ownership has steadily risen.
House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) is pushing the mantra of an “epidemic of gun violence” even as the overall murder rate falls.
Moreover, the decline comes as more and more Americans own and carry firearms for self-defense.
The NRA-ILA reports, “Since 1991, the murder rate has fallen by 45 percent and the overall violent crime rate has fallen by 48 percent.” The NRA-ILA’s claim squares with a Congressional Research Service (CRS) report that showed murder rates plummeting as gun ownership surged. [Source: Breitbart]
Gee, I wonder if there is a correlation between gun ownership and a drop in murders?
Spoiler: there is. When criminals and potential mass shooters know that there are armed citizens about, they turn tail and flee. That’s why recent mass shootings have taken place in locations that ban firearms.
Mass shooters have targeted churches, outdoor concerts, and public schools. All of which had strict gun-free policies. There was nobody nearby that could quickly engage the shooters and stop them. The shooters were safe to kill as many people as they could. Even in Parkland, a school that was supposed to have police officers guarding it, the shooter was able to roam freely—because the local cops were led by an evil coward.
The fact remains that as more Americans have purchased guns since the ‘90s, murders dropped. Guns do not equal death. When responsible, law-abiding, America-loving patriots own firearms, crime decreases. Cities that have strict gun laws have the most crime. That’s because Americans are powerless to defend themselves. (These same cities also greatly hamper the ability for cops to do their jobs—almost as if Democrats want more crime).
But Pelosi knows all this. She’s crazy, not stupid. As a Democrat, she wants to install socialism over America. For that to happen our Constitutional rights have to be stripped away, one by one. First, it’ll be the Second Amendment. Then our religious rights. Then free speech.
Then all the rest.
Our only recourse is to fight back with the facts. And never elect another Democrat to the White House again.
