Paul Ryan: This Country Has A Crime Problem Not A Gun Problem

Paul Ryan faces Joe Biden in a vice presidential debate Thursday where guns could become one of the many hot topics discussed. The Wisconsin Republican congressman has recently become a lightning rod for attacks from gun grabbers who think the issue is their ticket to thwarting the Romney campaign’s growing momentum in the polls.

Consider the local ABC affiliate in Michigan that ambushed Mr. Ryan on Monday. Reporter Terry Camp used his one-on-one time with the GOP vice presidential candidate to ask — twice — whether the country has a gun problem. Mr. Ryan replied that the nation has a crime problem that no new gun laws would solve.

“The best thing to help prevent violent crime in the inner cities is to bring opportunities to the inner cities, is to help people get out of poverty,” explained Mr. Ryan. “That’s what charities and civic groups and churches do to help one another make sure that they can realize the value of one another.”

    Ryan is right. The liberals just can’t seem to understand that it is bad people that use guns for bad things. Really pretty simple,

      Since I have several guns of various calibers (including shotguns) does that make me bad? Or, since I’ve never been in jail for stealing, fraud or tax evasion does that mean I own NO guns? Guess I don’t understand the constitution; Right to Bear Arms means WHAT?

    If they would just do something about the crime then the gun problem will solve itself.

    • Sam W

      Make everyone OWN (mandatory) a gun and lets see if the crime rate goes UP! Don’t think the criminals are not stupid; if they know they would encounter resistance by a person with a gun they would skip that residence. I prefer hollow points to tell you the truth……
