We know where gun violence is highest: inner-city districts that vote Democrat.
Is there any way to get the guns away from gangs? No. We all know this. Even Congress knows this.
Democrats say they want to get guns away from dangerous people. They do not mean people living in their voting districts. They mean in Republican, suburban districts. They are afraid of armed Republicans, not armed Democrats.
Taking away guns in the suburbs looks easier than taking them away in the inner cities. Bureaucrats will go for the safe targets.
Visualize a 23-year-old white male recently hired by the Department of Homeland Security. He has a B.A. degree in sociology. He is in Detroit. He is there to get residents’ guns.
He knocks at a door. A man comes to the door. “Are you Willie Williams?” The answer: “Who wants to know?” He replies, “If you are Willie Williams, I have come for your guns.”
How many weeks will he stay on the job?
This is why gun control is aimed at the suburbs: safe enforcement. But the laws cannot be enforced even there. There are too many gun owners. There are too many voters who say this: “The police cannot protect me. I must protect myself.”
That is what they say in the inner cities, too.
Americans are armed. They are going to stay armed. This is not Canada.
