We should have the highest murder rate ever according to leftist logic. Especially since we have millions more evil black rifles than we did 25 years ago, you never know when when of those black rifles will sneak off and kill someone, right?
The propagandists over at Aljazeera have invented a hilarious reason for the “contradiction” of relatively low crime and high gun ownership.
A recent report cited “Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America” (MDA), as the National Rifle Association’s “worst nightmare”.
MDA lobbies for gun control, stigmatises gun use, boasts a membership of 1.5 million and successfully lobbied Target stores, the nation’s fourth largest retailer, to announce that firearms were no longer welcome in its stores.
That victory, though modest, shows that stigmatisation works. While gun sales have doubled over the past two decades, gun homicides have actually been cut in half since 1993.
MDA’s activism replicates the MADD model, which demonised drink driving so successfully that distilleries joined their crusade. Now, the US’ largest beer producer provides funds for MADD’s public outreach programme.
Most people attribute decreased crime in America’s cities to things like the broken widows theory, stop and frisk, tougher sentencing, community policing, closure of housing projects, changing demographics, and more armed citizens willing to defend themselves but Aljazeera thinks they know better.
A relatively obscure Bloomberg funded group stigmatized gun ownership and that caused the decrease in the homicide rate according to Aljazeera. Apparently they stigmatized gun ownership so much that people couldn’t stop buying AR-15’s, LOL! You can read the entire article here, ironically the title is “Gun Control In The US Is Not Fantasy.”
