Democrats Are The Problem .... Not The solution

As a young man I often believed the democrat rants that lay the onus for many of societies ills at the feet of the Republican party and Republicans, then I grew up. I discovered that many of the supposed crimes that they laid at the feet of Republicans are those which they own all or nearly all the guilt for. A prime example of this among many is the near constant drum beat from democrats directed at the NRA and by proxy the Republican party and Republicans for gun violence. We have all heard the mantra ....the NRA is the reason why there is so much gun violence .... the NRA is the reason why so many of our cities have become shooting galleries. Well the truth of the matter is pretty evident if one cares to look. Gun violence in this country is largely confined to those locations which vote for, support and is populated by .... democrats ....places like Detroit .... Camden ...Philly .... Newark .... Washington D.C. .... Baltimore.....Wilkes Barre .... New Orleans..... the list is a long and bloody one. In all of these places it has been decades since the last Republican was elected as Mayor and in some places they never have.  In short the democrats are blaming their inability to stop killing each other with a mad happy abandon on everyone but themselves and wish ( as usual ) to punish others for their bad behavior. This desire by the democrats to avoid blame or responsibility is not confined to just this issue but can be seen in issues concerning race .... poverty.... war. To demonstrate ....who was it who created every single institution of racism the nation has known since the 1860's ..... who has insisted we spend ever increasing amounts of our national treasure on anti poverty programs ( 20 - 22 trillion to date ) only to see poverty increase..... who has caused or led us into the 5 largest wars this nation has I said democrats are the problem ...not the solution.

Guns Don't Kill People, Democrats Kill People

Headlines that blame a "gun culture" for the high rate of firearm- related homicides in the United States are not too difficult to locate (e.g., here, here, and here). The need to eliminate this "gun culture" is then used as justification for restriction of 2nd Amendment rights. What goes unmentioned about the so-called "gun culture" is its pervasiveness, or lack thereof, throughout our society as a whole. Even a casual reader of local news headlines should not be shocked to learn that firearm-related homicides are more prevalent in some neighborhoods than others. However, what may be shocking is the near exclusivity of firearm-related homicides to a small subset of neighborhoods; neighborhoods that vote predominately for Democrat candidates
