A Solution For Gun Violence?

Americans are worried about the rise in gun violence and murder in our largest cities……and now the White House endorses a plan by a insurrectionist senator to add 100,000 more cops on the street.

The White House distanced itself from the “defund the police” movement by endorsing Republican Missouri Sen. Josh Hawley’s proposal to hire 100,000 new cops, according to a press release from the Office of Josh Hawley.

Hawley introduced legislation in June to combat spiking crime rates. The legislative agenda included hiring 100,000 new police officers, increasing penalties for assaulting officers, protecting the privacy of law enforcement officials, expanding concealed carry rights for judges and prosecutors and creating a criminal offense for targeting officers based on their occupation, according to the Office of Josh Hawley.

“American families aren’t safe, but they deserve to be. And they can be if we will act. This is not the time to defund the police or vilify them, but to support the brave men and women in blue – and put more of them on the streets. Immediately,” said Hawley about his proposal.

Seriously?

The answer to gun violence is to put more guns on the street……add 100,000 more guns to the fray.

Biden is on board with this as a election strategy….he is trying to run away from any police reform to garner votes…screw the idea of trying to find actual solutions to the problems of gun violence.

As usual it is about the next election and never a thought of the actual problem.

This is what you get when you worship centrism….more problem added to the problem.

Just what this country needs….100,000 new cops with guns….what could possibly go wrong?

  1. And once again, Democrats show themselves to be just a watered-down version of republiKKKan Nazis

    1. I’m Dutch, so from the Netherlands.

      I would appreciate if you wouldn’t use the word nazi in this or any context it doesn’t belong.

      What you do is erode the actual meaning of the word and what it stands for.

      Just to shock people into silence!

      1. I’m sorry I offended you, but I stand by my comment. I got this belief from my father who actually fought to defeat the Nazis in WWII. He warned me that the republiKKKan party in the US was frighteningk like the Nazis. Remember as well that the Nazis didn’t commit atrocities and plunge the world into war overnight. No one stopped them when it was easy. The world had to stop them when it was terribly hard.

      2. Nazi” is a historical term, a word that has a very specific definition:

        A member of the National Socialist German Workers’ Party.
        Something specific for that time, not at present.

        If you let that sink in, calling someone a spelling- or grammer nazi is to say the least disrespevtful

      3. We will agree to disagree. I have no wish to offend you, but those who fail to remember the past are doomed to repeat it. Purposefully choosing to downplay or ignore the threat these people pose is exactly how the Nazis/Fascists came to power the first time.

      4. I agree with you more as you think. That being aware to the signals in your society, of those that harbour undermining democracy sentiments, with violence and blaming certain groups.

        However using words,, that didn’t find their origin in the US is not the way to do it.

        American right is American made.
        To adress those, you have to look where, why and when they developed.
        Some sentiments were already there before fascism took hold in Italy and Nazism in Germany.

        Using terminology of another country, in another time isn’t the way to do it.

        My parent were ypun adults as on May 10th 1940 war broke out in the Netherlands, They lived, I still do close to the German border. My father was scarred in body and soul, my mother had her own gruesome memories to deal with.

        Words, typical of that time have still an a shivering echo here.

      5. And I am referring to the people and events taking place here in the US. You cannot remove a word from the language. The mindset and actions of the republiKKKan party, and the trumpsters in particular, eerily mirror the early days if the Nazu party in Germany.
        When I use the word Bazi, it is deliberate. I want people to open their eyes and see the present danger and the potential threat these people pose.

  2. I am a centrist as in I would be a rightist centrist in most of the World. What Americans classify as Centrists is basically people who suck the republican capitalist Tite no matter what.
