The Press Corps threw Psaki a bone with the way they asked her about crime in this country. It looks like it was practically staged so that she could talk about the community violence prevention programs that Biden is trying to put through. But if you listen to the question, Psaki doesn’t really talk about fixing the underlying problem.
“This past weekend there were more than a dozen mass shootings across this country. 4000 more people were shot and killed by guns in 2020 compared to the year before. Is there a crime problem in this country?” A reporter asked Psaki.
“Well I would say certainly there is a guns problem and that’s something the president would say, and there are communities where local violence and community violence is an issue and that’s one of the reasons that we have proposed and have now are implementing funding for community violence prevention programs across the country.”
This great scene in “American Dad!” really explains just how ridiculous the anti-gun movement is. The liberal daughter complains about how guns kill people. The father then puts a gun on the table and tells the gun to kill, demolishing the daughter’s anti-gun argument.
Here’s the clip
Mass shootings are really not about guns. 2020’s crime statistics are going to be different, as many Liberal leaders buckled to BLM and defunded their police, causing significant increases in crime. But even if that were not the case, guns can not kill anyone by themselves. They are simply a tool. When we look at the obesity rate in the United States we don’t say we have a spoon problem.
So Psaki here is just using guns to dodge the actual issue of mental illness. Mass shootings are often caused by the deranged, and if we could bring more awareness to mental health, then we would prevent some of these shootings. But Dems are not interested in solving the problem they just want to disarm us.
