The People of the Gun have long known that gun control only disarms victims, not criminals. Now, even Democrats are wising up to that fact. By a more than two-to-one margin, Democrats surveyed in a Trafalgar Group poll say gun control either makes no difference or actually makes matters worse when it comes to big city crime. Among the general population, that number rises to over 80%.
Those results, of course, don’t fit with the mainstream media’s prevailing narrative, so you won’t see stories about the poll in the New York Times or on MSNBC.
Breitbart, however, covered it . . .
A Trafalgar Group poll of likely general election voters from the Democrat Party shows a majority of respondents believe “the strict gun laws in most major cities” do not in any way curb the “current retail crime surge.”
The Trafalgar poll was conducted December 17, 2021, through December 22, 2021.
The poll showed that 47.1 percent of all respondents believe the gun controls make “no difference,” and 37.3 percent believe the laws actually make the crime spree “worse.”
When broken down by parties, 53.8 of Democrat respondents said the gun controls make “no difference” in the crime spree, while 16.1 percent said the controls actually make it “worse.”
Of course, an even bigger factor driving crime is prosecutors who have decided they won’t prosecute crimes or hold criminals — particularly violent criminals — accountable. Prosecutors like Manhattan’s Alvin Bragg who just announced he will prosecute armed robberies at businesses as misdemeanors so long as nobody is shot.
There are also “social justice” prosecutors like Cook County’s Kim Foxx who give sweetheart deals to hate crime hoaxers like Jussie Smollett while giving a pass to gang bangers who shoot it out with one another, resulting in one death.
