Thats the rub isnt it, crime isnt rampant across the nation, its generally located in specific hotspots mostly in cities and suburban localities. City folk are like rats trapped in a cage, they seek to have their domains made safe by their reps and the reps generally refuse to admit that their issues are situational not widespread across the nation.
Chicago, NYC, LA, Miami, Boston and other localities need to fight local crime locally, not statewide or nationally. Our national reps cant help but take tragic situations and magnify them for the causes that fit their agendas. School shootings are less likely to directly impact us than the plane were riding in crashing.
Time to wake up and see whats real instead of listening to turds spew their knee-jerk reactionary garbage!
