Democrats would love us all to believe that more gun control would lead to the end of violent crime.
As conservatives, we know that is pure hogwash.
Apparently, some Democrats feel the same way.
One of them just got outed after her text messages on this subject were leaked.
They Don’t Help
St. Louis Mayor Tishaura Jones made the mistake of discussing the lack of impact of gun control laws have on crime with her father.
Those texts were leaked, and now she is scrambling.
One text stated, “Chicago has strict gun laws as well but that doesn’t deter gun violence.”
Yet, last month, Jones stated, “Our state’s lax gun laws make our challenge even more difficult. … The legislature’s lack of action on gun safety laws encourages the proliferation of guns on our streets and puts our responding officers directly in harm’s way.”
It gets even better in that Jones blasted a fellow lawmaker, a Republican, who suggested that a better way to go was to invest in people.
State Senator Cindy O’Laughlin, in a recent op-ed, recommended “improving education, workforce training, and greater economic development to reverse the currents of desperation that sweep teens toward crime.”
Jones called this a “crazy editorial” publicly and pushed back on the idea.
As I have stated before, it is all political theater, my friends.
Even Democrats do not believe the garbage they try to sell to the American people.
