Dems Incoherent on Sacramento Shooting

The mass shooting in Sacramento last weekend that took six lives occurred one block from the Capitol offices of Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association. The following morning, I speculated on social media that it was probably gang members with criminal records. It didn’t take a Kreskin to make that sort of prediction which, of course, turned out to be accurate.

Nor does it take extraordinary clairvoyance to predict that progressives would, once again, blame “gun violence” rather than criminally inclined perpetrators. (I’ve often wondered why, when there is a murder committed with a knife, progressives never talk about “knife violence.”) True to form, both Gov. Gavin Newsom and Sacramento’s mayor, Darrell Steinberg, immediately blamed “gun violence” and called for more gun control laws notwithstanding the fact that California already has some of the strictest gun control laws in America and is currently considering more.

The issue of gun control aside, the progressive answer to any one of California’s many problems is to advance “solutions” that are ineffective at best and counterproductive at worst. Here, their answer to civil unrest, increased crime and perceived excessive incarceration is to “defund” the police and grant early release to violent felons. Even when, as last week’s carnage reveals, these policies don’t work, the response is frequently doubling down with more of the same.

  1. Of course the liberals don’t want to point to the real cause of the shootings: Gangs fighting among themselves. The liberals know that the gang members and those that support them pretty much all vote democratic. That includes a significant part of the black population. Promises to take care of those who vote for them has actually deprived the black community of opportunities to right their ship that is kept in that situation by the liberals who do not, in reality, want them to rise above the current level. Having been to the Southeast states where, in past history, the black community worked as a family unit with responsibility being placed on all members. We now, under the great society take over of the responsibilities of the parents, and particularly the fathers, have seen the family unit greatly decline. When people of all cultures are again made responsible for themselves there will likely be a significant drop in criminal behavior.

    This was a tragedy.

    The criminals cannot be stopped unless the penalties make them incapable of being in society.

    Present day computer technology.makes fabrication of pistols, rifles, etc. impossible to stop.

    Does anyone believe that $millions available to gangs and cartels will not be spent on their own factories to make any gun they want? If you don’t get it you are stupid.

    Calif. had a oppressive anti gun, anti 2nd Amendment law on the books in the 1970’s-80’s that failed. Gun running exploded across the border and by boats.

    No bail? No brains.

    Most of the issues are within black, hispanic, and asian communities……. Think about it. Are you going to deny the rest of us protection?

    When the black family has been destroyed, this is the result. Boys grow up with no father to discipline them, counsel them, love them, and teach them. The gangs are the feral alternative and this is completely foreseeable. As long as the black illegitimacy rate is 75%, this never changes.
