The INFURIATING Reasons That Gun Crimes Increase When Anti-Gunners Are In Charge

Anti-gunners, as you know have this bizarre idea that if you remove “all” guns from a society through gun control (as if that could actually happen) or severely limit who can legally have access to guns, then gun violence and (in their minds) overall violence would decrease.

That’s just not the case. History proves that over and over and over again in multiple countries.

But the issue isn’t just that, once legal gun ownership is removed from a culture, then only the government and criminals have firearms meaning that criminals can roam freely committing crimes. No, it’s worse than that.

See, what happens is that the same people who tend to be anti-gun in their political position are also the same people who tend to be compassionate (if we’re being charitable to them) towards those who find themselves in the judicial system. What that means, in plain terms, is that anti-gunners in government bureaucracies and on the judicial bench tend to set up situations where violent offenders (including those using firearms) are out on the streets that much more quickly and committing violent crimes again. A writer over at gunfacts.info (it was posted under admin) writes,

Starting in 1992, just before violent crime peaked in America, states and the Federal government all jumped on the “get tough on crime” legislative spree. Overall, this suppressed violent crime. But violence started creeping up around 2015, which got many people wondering why – given that all the “get tough” laws were still in effect.

Or were they?

Laws are often written with wiggle room. For example, “sentencing guidelines” are just that – guidelines. They are not chiseled in stone down to two decimal places. The same caveat applies to how government agencies interpret rules and set priorities. For example, in the year 2000, 1.3% of suspects that the federal government declined to prosecute for guns crimes were declined because of “alternatives,” such as “pretrial diversion” or “administrative disciplinary options.” In 2016, the rate was over 11%.

This writer continues:

The declining rate of referrals to federal attorneys is troubling enough, but even when prosecutors do win a case, judges can skew the long-term outcomes and indirectly affect gun crime rates.

The “Takeaways” according to this writer are:

  • Firearm homicides increase when referrals for federal gun crimes decrease.
  • Likewise, reducing the number of people charged with gun crimes is associated with an increase in firearm homicides.
  • Reducing sentencing for gun crimes is associated with an increase in firearm homicides.
  • This might be via a political shift that led to changes in referring, charging and sentencing for gun crimes and the associated higher penalties.

Now, those are that writer’s specific words in the takeaway, but let’s be clear here: those who oppose gun ownership by the public also tend to be the same ones who want to have a compassionate heart towards those who commit crimes. And while we should have a discussion about the best way to reform criminals, the result of the policies that they currently tend to advocate and implement are clear: when anti-gunners run the legal system, gun violence in the society increases, and it is to blame on those policies.

Here is a real-world example of that situation from a city whose municipal government has long been on the anti-gun, be nice to criminals bandwagon. John Domen writes,

City leaders have long lamented the proliferation and accessibility of illegal guns with crime again on the rise. D.C. police often highlight all the arrests they make for possession of them, too.

But not everyone arrested is convicted, or even charged, a D.C. Council member said Tuesday night.

“About a third of all of MPD’s gun arrests don’t get papered by the U.S. Attorney’s Office,” Ward 6 Council member Charles Allen during a town hall focused on crime in his ward. “Meaning they don’t move forward to be charged. That’s concerning and I want to know why.”

We want to know why they aren’t being charged, too, but as long as anti-gunners make and implement the legal and criminal policies in those areas, it seems pretty likely that their gun violence problem will be unchanged.

  1. If one wishes to see proof of how true This article really is, merely look at the city of Philadelphia Pa statistics. Since a shift to liberal Democrat politicians a decade ago, the city has become increasingly violent. The city has a very Liberal Mayor (Kenney) and a thug loving District Attorney (Krasner). They blame the police for doing their job and just recently won’t let them enforce minor traffic infractions, cause of course that’s racist. Since these fine liberals took office. The crime rates have risen dramatically and the murder rate is only second to Chicago. 500 murders in 2020 and on track to break 600 in 2021. From a friend in the police Dept They are actually cooking the books to make it look less violent! Sadly the majority of those murdered are black and brown and the perpetrators mirror the victims. So defund the police, don’t enforce gun laws and let thugs out on bail who should be! What happens your city goes to crap. But as usual they blame the guns for all their problems. Hallmark definition of stupidity!

    • Murder rate and number of murders are two different stats.
      Baltimore has the highest murder rate (per capita) and Chicago is not in the top 20 (per DOJ)
      Chicago has more murders but has a population of 2.5 million, thus a lower per capita.

  2. Marcus Garvey, the great Black nationalist, was right. They should all go back to Africa. The crime rate will drop dramatically.

    • Native Americans were right also. The crime rate would drop dramatically if the Europeans went back to the Old World. Simple matter of perspective, Seth.

      IMHO mankind does not have the intelligence to save itself. Too many wackos on.both sides of the fence. God help us.

    • I agree but they blame white people for making them slaves n that’s not true their king sold them to the Portuguese for gold n trinkets so their own people made them selves slaves shoot I’m from up north n even I know that the south treated them better then the northern people but the south got the blame because of Abe Lincoln he’s the racist jerk that started all this racist crap in my opinion

  3. That is the democrats way , Blame anything but the real cause , the object made them do it they are not responsible …
    Go back to GET TOUGH ON CRIME …………. They are not stealing FOOD to eat …

  4. If guns are banned there will still be assaults and murders , guns aren’t the primary problem ! Jeremiah 17:9 says the heart is deceitful above all things and desperately wicked: who can know it ! Mans heart is the problem !

  5. I think you’re wrong on the reason, I think the lax punishments are intended to get the crime stat up so the average person will be more favorable to gun control., the people who can’t comprehend that taking guns from honest citizens does NOT get one gun out of criminal hands. They need to be reminded that guns would probably come in drug loads. If you think I’m wacko think about how long the modern left has tried to make the country communistic. They are the same nuts who suggested unilateral disarmament which a Soviet idea planted by American communists. It would work as well as U.S. neutrality and British arms reduction until about 38 or so.

  6. Murder rate and number of murders are two different stats.
    Baltimore has the highest murder rate (per capita) and Chicago is not in the top 20 (per DOJ)
    Chicago has more murders but has a population of 2.5 million, thus a lower per capita.

  7. Just one question for George. Are you advocating we outlaw hearts? Thanks for the quote from the Bible. If only more people read the Bible we’d have less problems all around and hopefully, then the wisdom to accept the root causes of violence and attack those issues with the same zeal the anti gunners currently use.
