Shannon R. Watts, the highly-paid Democrat public relations consultant turned “grassroots” citizen control cultist for Michael Bloomberg, took to the pages of USA Today to lie to the American people about violence and her “solution,” so-called “smart guns.”
Check it out:
Gun violence is a public health crisis in America. Each day, 33 Americans are murdered with guns – including eight children or teens. From mass shootings to more everyday incidents, our eyes are now wide open to this national epidemic. And as Americans, we owe it to each other to stop its spread by implementing solutions like safer gun laws and fostering innovative technologies – including personalized guns.
Gun violence is not a public health crisis. It never has been. Gun violence is a criminal justice and law enforcement matter. It always has been. Arguing otherwise is simply duplicitous politics.
The biographies of the 33 Americans killed every day with firearms (not all are murdered, some are killed by citizens in lawful self-defense) show that most have extensive criminal records, and are involved in the drug trade and/or violent crime. The “eight children or teens” are gang-bangers 17-19 years old involved in violent crime.
