That evil United States ranks at number 111. We didn’t even crack the top of the bottom one half. Shocking.
In the U.S., Detroit ranks at number 1 with 54.6 percent per 100,000. New Orleans at 52.2 percent, and St. Louis at 35.5 percent. Interestingly, these cities plus Chicago and many more are governed by (wait for it) Democrats, and have been for decades. Red neck/gun nut central, Plano, Texas is ranked at 0.4 percent per 100,000.
Conclusion: Ban Democrats from ever holding public office. Its time you progs understand that maybe, just maybe its not the guns, but the people holding them who are to blame.
Those poor people in Charleston, S.C. were barely cold when the usual progressive parrot suspects were squawking about more gun control. Even the man who liberals hate most, Bill O’Reilly, of Fox News, is joining the chorus. Shame on all of them.
But Rod, but Rod, don’t you see, if there were no guns, these cities wouldn’t have any murders. Yeah right. “A gun is like a parachute, if you need one, and don’t have one, you’ll never need one again.”
