Anti-Gun Mayors Shift Blame For Violence Onto Congress

posted on October 28, 2015

We’d suggest that this piece in Politico is a sample of what Second Amendment defenders will confront in the foreseeable future: Emphatic statements from taxpayer-protected elitists who systematically ignore the problems they helped create. 

Politico surveyed 45 U.S. mayors—85 percent of whom were Democrats—and somehow drew the conclusion that their strident calls for more gun control are newsworthy. The article contains eight fired-up quotes, all from Democrats (6) or left-leaning “Independents” (2). The juiciest, and Politico’s headline, was from Chula Vista Mayor Mary Salas: “Get a backbone (Congress)—do your job.” 

In reality, Salas and her ilk have spent the last 40 years hamstringing our law enforcement so that the bulk of violent crime now has to do with only one thing: Drug turf wars. This is organized crime, and needs to be dealt with as such. 

It has nothing to do with law-abiding citizens and their firearms, and it’s high time the boneheads at Politico and, apparently, in mayor’s offices across the land, figured out the difference.
