Brennan Center for Justice study proves that the murder rate in liberal areas dwarfs that of pro-gun cities.
The Brennan Center for Justice revealed that the murder rate has skyrocketed by over 13 percent in the 25 biggest American cities in 2015 according to this report published by Worldnet Daily on 4/21.
The three cities that account for “more than half” of the violent crime wave hike are run by Democrats who enforce strict gun control regulations – Baltimore, Chicago and Washington D.C., which make up 13.3 percent of the rise in gun deaths in the nation’s most populated cities in 2015.
The Brennan Center blamed the troubling statistics on local policy.
“These serious increases seem to be localized, rather than part of a national pandemic, suggesting that community conditions remain the major factor,” a statement released by Brennan to Breitbart stated. “Notably, these three cities all seem to have falling populations, higher poverty rates and higher unemployment than the national average. This implies that economic deterioration of these cities could be a contributor to murder increases.”
The cities also share one commonality – they are Democrat controlled and they each have enforced a ban on “assault” weapons.
In addition, Chicago’s “violence tax” makes it harder for regular citizens to purchase a firearm due to unwarranted fees on all guns sold within city limits while Washington D.C. boasts a ridiculous waiting period on gun registrations as well as a near $100 fee.
In 2015, Baltimore saw 344 homicides, the Baltimore Sun reported. In Chicago in 2015, it was 488, according to the Chicago Tribune. And in Washington, D.C., the murder rate for 2015 stood at 162, which represents a 54 percent hike over the 2014 rate, Breitbart reported, citing police statistics. Source
It is worth noting that the FBI’s own statistics suggest that more guns result in less crime, yet leftists have remained persistent in their pursuit of mass civil disarmament and the destruction of the second amendment.
