In the aftermath of the recent shooting in Colorado Springs by a crazed, old loner who lived in a shack without electricity or running water, President Obama seized on the tragedy not to mourn with the families of the victims, but instead to push one of his favorite topics, gun control.
Almost before the victims bodies were cold and anything was known about the shooter, Obama was already calling for additional background checks, limitations on the types of guns that should be allowed, and declaring “enough is enough!” And make no mistake, when Obama and the left call for greater gun control, they are talking about gun confiscation, not more accurate shooting.
But because facts to a liberal are like kryptonite is to Superman, Obama and his acolytes never mention what the effect is of turning towns and states into “gun-free” zones. In fact, it turns out that those are the very locations that criminals can be relatively certain they can act out their violent deeds without being confronted by armed citizenry who are able to stop the violence. Let's take a look at one city that has very strict gun control laws and see if less crime and violence would be the likely outcome if extended to the rest of the nation.
