In 2020, San Diego saw a 28 percent increase in gun violence and a 20 percent increase in reports of gunfire, the Times of San Diego reported. A large portion of the violence is attributed to gang members, who are also responsible for 20 percent of all murders over the last three years, according to city police.

Mayor Gloria, Council members Monica Montgomery Steppe and Sean Elo-Rivera, and Police Chief David Nislei said the increase in gun-related crime demanded action from the city.

“The recent increase of shootings in our city is cause for great concern, but it demands that we lean-in as a community rather than shy away,” Mayor Todd Gloria said, according to the Times. “The No Shots Fired program represents an important collaboration between the city, law enforcement and community that seeks to stop gun violence, promote peace and create safer neighborhoods for all of us.”

Over the proposed six-month period, organizations will provide outreach and resources to gang members, in addition to offering them an opportunity to get out of gang culture. The program could be extended after its completion.

  1. This mayor must be a dumb ass. Here’s the solution: Arrest all these MS-13 criminals and gangs, and deport their asses back to where they came from because most are probably illegal residents living in our country. You don’t run them through the court system because we taxpayers end up having to pay for their legal expenses. We need President Trump back in office.

    • Gangs must cease eating demoCrap or forever remain on the democRat Party Plantation. Instead of following the path left by MLK too many Blacks chose the path provided by their lily white trinket promising democRat Party slave masters.

      Blacks, whites it doesn’t matter. Following the path of a political party that owns the legacy of slavery, segregation, Jim Crow, lynching, the KKK, Eugenics, Gun Control and other race based atrocities spells S T U P I D in neon lights.

      Gangs should put down their firearms, booze and dope. Then unite and hold their democRat Party slave masters liable for Monetary Reparations. C’mon man…Anyone with an ounce of history between their ears knows that a Black American belonging to the democRat Party makes as much sense as a Jew belonging to the nazi party.

      • Monetary reparations. Good idea, pay back to all the yankee families who lost relatives fighting the civil war.
        The Indians got casinos, so fck them.

        • Yeah, I’m into reparations……..to white families that get up and go to work every day then pay for all the free-shit programs the Dems use to skim, scam, and squander Productive Citizens’ Money, and with which to buy votes of the Government Plantation Dwellers. I’d be willing to pay reparation once……a one way ticket to the shit hole land of mud and straw huts from which their ancestors were brought by their own neighboring tribes, and feel so unfortunate to not be living large within.

    • Deporting MS-13,,,,and all other illegals…..is kinda like hand bailing with a teacup a boat with major holes in the keel. We’re sinking with the bailing cup in our hand. Need to “bail” politicians. They’re the real problem sinking this ship. They have opened the borders and passed another 1.9Trillion dollar free-shit Government Plantation Dweller program. I can’t enter or pass a business that doesn’t have “HIRING” signs out. Need money, GET A DAMN JOB like I did for 50 years. Quit reaching into my pocket via your government thieves…..er, representatives.
      First American Revolution over taxation without representation.
      Second American Revolution over taxation by representation…and a plethora of other tyrannical infringements and wrongs.

  2. Yea, that will work – asking criminals nicely not to break the law. That like asking a demotator not to support gun control.

  3. Obviously it’s systemic racism. Or climate change. Or somebody used the wrong pronoun. Maybe Dr. Seus?

    Eh, probably all of the above.
    All I know for sure is that as a gun owning college educated white male living in a rural area I definitely carry the lions share of the blame and I am sorry. Truly, I am.

  4. LOL might as well “ask” them to stop committing robbery, arson,murder and rape too. I’m so sure these criminals will listen to him.

  5. You say “gang members shootin’ gang members” like that is a bad thing!?!?!!? Long as they keep it “in the family” sounds like a great plan. Except Libtards use those shootings as a rational for gun control of patriotic Americans.

    The bad guy with a gun…..or the gang member with a gun…. the mentally deficient guy with a gun……or the TERRIBLY DISTRAUGHT FAMILY MEMBER OF A GUN SHOOTING VICTIM…….or a gun violence survivor……or the Feelz-Gooder Social Do-Gooder….. or the the “hair-on-fire, we’re-all-gonna-die” contingent……are the politician’s easily manipulated Useful Idiot Tools to achieve his power and control agenda.

    A politician with a law never stops a bad guy with a gun.
    He only controls the good guys which is his true agenda.

    The new agenda for humanity requires that no one will have the capacity to fight back. It has been said: “Our Task of creating a Socialist America can only succeed when those who would resist us have been totally disarmed.” No other explanation is possible.

    • Combine impulsive behavior, lack of training, and poor firearm handling skills, and you have a lot of negligent discharges and missed shots. And those NDs and misses have to go somewhere and often it is an innocent bystander. And criminals also have little care for collateral damage in their actions.

  6. I am sure that going into a 6 month program to stop gang banging for a career in fast food is something these guys want.

  7. Oye Vatos, aquella pinche puta alcaldesa thinks we give a chit about her seis meses…I tell her “ese, cabrona, ain’t gonna happen”…me and the homies are laughing at the pendeja.

    ¡Gandayóna pública!

  8. The only way to deal with remorseless criminals is to shoot them dead on sight. It is interesting that people who are against this, don’t live in the most violent cities and neighborhoods, of the United States. In fact they live miles away off the main roads in areas where no mob but think of going.

    Jeff Cooper founder of Gun Sight said that the best way to solve the violence in the cities is to make sure the residents have guns. Because then they will solve their own problems.

    This Violence use to be limited just to certain neighborhoods. But now the criminals have stolen everything where they live, and now are traveling to other neighborhoods in cities. Sometimes traveling well over a hundred miles to find a victim to steal from.

  9. 20% of shootings gang related. The writer is obviously dealing in fake news. The minimum is 80%, in San Diego north of 90%. What a maroon.

  10. hmm wait, don’t Calif have the strictest gun laws?? 20% increase? where are they getting these guns? Don’t they have to pass background checks for Ammo? Probably most of these are already felons so where’s the system to check on them? The answer is to pass more gun laws because the ones on the books don’t work, so the new laws will affect the people already doing the legal things and NOT the Criminals. hmm is that right?? Get that?

  11. “A system of licensing and registration is the perfect device to deny gun ownership to the bourgeoisie.” – Vladimir Ilyich Lenin

    There should be a “paper and ink” background check and waiting periods for politicians and their laws. They do more collective harm to America through their laws than all the bad guys with guns combined.

    A legislator with a bill is far more dangerous to the populace as a whole than a citizen….good or bad….with a gun. The bad guy with a gun poses short term danger….the worst damage he poses is loss of one or several lives……terrible, but finite. The politician’s danger impacts the whole populace, growing constantly, lasting forever, and posing loss of Liberty, Freedoms, and Rights……enslavement on the Government Plantation…..and, history shows even loss of life for dissenters post-gun confiscation. Life without Liberty, Freedom, and Rights is worse than no life, akin to living Hell on Earth. A bad guy with a gun can always be decisively stopped by a good guy with a gun. A politician…not so much so…yet.

    The new agenda for humanity requires that no one will have the capacity to fight back. It has been said: “Our Task of creating a Socialist America can only succeed when those who would resist us have been totally disarmed.” No other explanation is possible.
    History has repeatedly demonstrated that disarming good people in the name of making bad people harmless only eventually facilitates politicians shooting their own countrymen. History…learn from it or be doomed to relive it.
    And there, boys and girls, is the Biden Gun Violence Prevention Plan in a nut shell. It’s all about protecting Socialist tyrannical politicians from American Patriots.

    • It would be interesting to compare the date of that Lenin quote with the beginnings of gun control in the US.

      • well, Lenin lived 1870-1924. When gun control began in America is subjective. Redcoats attempted it in Revolutionary times. Democrats enacted Jim Crowe laws post-Civil War to deny guns to Black men. Doubt Lenin’s unconfirmed statement had any impact directly on America anti-Second Amendment leanings other than it rings with truth regardless of who may or may not have said it.

  12. A ceasefire just gives the little bastards time to dig in. We’ve gottem on the run keep bombing.
    What’s the Commander in Chief thinking?

  13. Under no circumstances will this former Marine Infantry Office not return fire, deadly fire, AND, get this…with maneuvers to assault a position firing on me and mine.

    I know and have practiced the art of armed warfare.

    • My cousin had a G.I. Joe doll, we made him beat up his sisters Ken doll and take Barbie.
      I learned all about hand to hand combat when his sister found Ken’s head pulled off and Barbie didn’t have on no clothes.

  14. “Over the proposed six-month period, organizations will provide outreach and resources to gang members, in addition to offering them an opportunity to get out of gang culture. The program could be extended after its completion.”

    I predict great things for this “program”……🤔😂😂
