All the radical Left can seem to talk about is how gun control is the only answer to horrific mass shootings.
What they fail to mention is that gun control has failed in nearly every city and state where it has been implemented.
And one west coast city is seeing a massive spike in shootings despite having strict gun control laws.
Portland, Oregon saw a shocking amount of shootings within a span of one day despite having intense gun control measures in place.
Time after time, in the immediate aftermath of horrific mass shootings such as the ones that occurred in Buffalo and Uvalde, the far-left goes on a full-blown crusade to force gun control down everyone’s throats.
This time the sickening response was immediate, with some fake news reporters spewing their anti-gun rhetoric before any details were revealed to the public.
And to make matters even worse, Democrat leaders like Nancy Pelosi and Joe Biden are calling for drastic measures such as repealing the Second Amendment or banning certain common firearms like AR-15s and 9mm handguns.
But the truth of the matter is, gun control does not work.
Plain and simple.
For proof, look at just about every single place gun control measures have been implemented.
No amount of restrictions, background checks, so-called “red flag” laws, or magazine limits have stopped even a pinch of gun violence.
That is because guns don’t kill people, the people using them are killing people.
Until the radical Left realizes this simple fact, then gun violence will only continue to get worse in America.
A prime example of how gun control is a fool’s errand can be seen in the far-left liberal mecca of Portland, Oregon.
By nearly all measures, Portland has one of the most left-wing municipal governments in the country.
Name a ridiculous leftist policy idea, and Portland has tried it.
When it comes to gun control, Portland has implemented insane policies such as “red flag” laws, established vast “gun-free zones,” and banned private sales.
Despite having these restrictive laws in place, Portland is a hotbed of crime and gun violence.
So much so that the other day, Portland saw ten shootings in a span of just 24 hours.
Two people were injured, but the toll could have been much worse.
Yet you will not hear a peep from the corporate-controlled media about it.
That is because these shootings prove just how useless “gun control” is.
Gun control is designed to restrict the rights of law-abiding gun owners, who by definition are not the ones committing crimes.
Criminals do not care about the law, which is what classifies them as criminals.
Banning guns does not magically stop criminals from getting their hands on guns, but it does remove guns from trained, law-abiding citizens, making society far more dangerous.
Chicago, Portland, and New York City are all examples of cities that have implemented gun control measures just to see a spike in gun crimes.
Gun control is about control, not a sincere effort to stop gun violence.
That ought to be common sense at this point, but as they say, common sense is not so common anymore.
