On July 9, Breitbart News reported that gun crime was surging in the Democrat-run cities of Baltimore, Chicago, Milwaukee, New Orleans, and St. Louis.
We can now expand that list to include Democrat-run Houston, Philadelphia, and New York City too.
According to USA Today, the “number of murders in 2015″ is up by more than 30 percent in Baltimore and up by at least that much or more in New Orleans and St. Louis. The Baltimore Sun reports that “a rising number of homicides have been recorded this year in [the] cities… [of] Chicago (up 18 percent from last year), Milwaukee (up 117 percent), Houston (up 36 percent)… and Philadelphia (up 7 percent).”
The Mayor of Baltimore is Stephanie-Rawlings Blake (D), the Mayor of Chicago is Rahm Emanuel (D), the Mayor of Houston is Annise Parker (D), the Mayor of Milwaukee is Tom Barrett (D), the Mayor of New Orleans is Mitch Landrieu (D), the Mayor of New York City is Bill de Blasio (D), the Mayor of Philadelphia is Michael Nutter (D), and the Mayor of St. Louis is Francis G. Slay (D). And Democrat rule has by and large been the norm in the these cities for decades, with the exception of Rudy Giuliani (R) in NYC in the 1990s/early 2000s.
