Published

Will President Donald Trump fold to anti-gun pressure?

After the El Paso and Dayton massacres this past weekend, President Trump is now calling for so-called “red flag” laws to take guns from people who’re allegedly pose a public risk to others.

Trump said “Our nation is overcome with shock, horror and sorrow. We are outraged and sickened by this monstrous evil.”

The president also condemned white supremacy, after reports surfaced that the El Paso murderer penned a racist manifesto.

Trump declared, “In one voice, our nation must condemn racism, bigotry and white supremacy. These sinister ideologies must be defeated. Hatred has no place in America.”

Trump also tweeted about possibly linking expanded background check legislation to immigration reform.

Video games were also critiqued in his declaration, as President Trump views them as a cultural factor behind these shootings.

The president’s support for red flag gun confiscation orders has backing from the likes of his daughter, Ivanka, Senator Lindsey Graham, and Congressman Dan Crenshaw.

These laws are present in 17 states.

Although they sound innocuous at first glance, many gun rights advocates believe that red flag laws severely undermine due process and could lead to lethal encounters with law enforcement.

Dudley Brown, the President of the National Association for Gun Rights, commented on the nature of red flag laws:

They [Law enforcement] can literally come to your house at 2 in the morning. Yes, they can knock on the door. Sometimes they don’t knock. Sometimes they use a battering ram to open the door.

Just last year, a 61-year-old man in Maryland was killed by police when they tried to serve him his gun confiscation order.

Additionally, Connecticut was one of the first states in the country to enact red flag laws in 1999. However, this law could not prevent the psychopathic Adam Lanza from slaughtering 27 children at Sandy Hook.

Pro-gun researcher John Lott claims that “Red Flag laws appear to have had no significant effect on murder, suicide, the number of people killed in mass public shootings, robbery, aggravated assault or burglary. There is some evidence that rape rates rise. These laws apparently do not save lives.”

This is based off of data from 1970 to 2017.

With growing cries for gun control and Republicans willing to compromise, red flag legislation could be coming up for a vote in Congress.

Gun rights activists will have to be ready to fight back.

Baltimore’s Population Plummets as the City Becomes Dysfunctional

Published

on

ZeroHedge recently reported on the dire state of Baltimore.

The city’s population fell below 600,000, as it is rocked by “record homicides, an opioid crisis, and now an economic depression risks sending the city deeper into chaos.”

The Baltimore Sun, cited new U.S. Census data released on March 26, 2020, which estimated that Baltimore’s population was 593,490 as of July 2019.

ZeroHedge provided some context to Baltimore’s imploding demographics:

To give you some perspective on the collapsing population trend in Baltimore. In 1950, the city had 950,000 residents. Now it has 593,490, which is a loss of 356,510 people, or about 37.5% of the entire population in seven decades.

“White flight”, the crack epidemic of the 1980s/1990s, and a complete mismanagement of the city, have led to its notable decline. As a result, many have fled the city altogether or have gone to Baltimore County and other surrounding counties.

Michael Rendall, the director of the Maryland Population Research Center and a sociology professor at the University of Maryland, College Park, said in the aftermath 2015 Baltimore Riots, no other counties surrounding the city witnessed a decline in the population.

The city’s plunging population, Rendall stated, “is not a phenomenon reflective of the overall metropolitan area.”

During the last year, Baltimore City saw 8,953 people leave the city, which is 1.5 percent of its population.

Putting this in perspective, when Democratic Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake was in office in 2014, the city had over 623,000 residents. In other words, the city has lost about 5% of its population in five years.

Ever since the riots, Baltimore’s economic growth has stagnated, homicides have been on the rise, and opioids have wreaked havoc on low-income neighborhoods. In 2019, Baltimore’s homicide rate

Given the shocking realities of its high crime, it’s shocking the city hasn’t even bothered to pass legislation that would help citizens arm themselves against the very real threat of criminals.

It also doesn’t help that the city has embraced many of the wacky criminal justice reforms which empower criminals, while law-abiding citizens are at the mercy of society’s most depraved.

Baltimore is Exhibit A of a failed city.
