Baltimore has some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation and yet they have one of the highest murder rates in the nation. Like Chicago, the strict gun control laws have done nothing to curb gun violence. Former Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake, a typical black Democrat and disciple of Barack Obama, didn’t make matters any better by continuing Obama’s war on law enforcement. New Mayor, Catherine Pugh, has turned to the ATF for help in reducing gun violence in the city.
Baltimore has made a name for itself as being one of the most violent cities in America. To help combat the “gun violence” problem the city has, the Department of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) has rolled out a new program: allowing the city to borrow a “gun tracing” van. The ATF hopes to make this van, and others like it, accessible to cities nationwide.
“We are looking for all the help we can get. As you know our murder rate is up. Murder is out of control. Too many guns on our streets,” Mayor Catherine Pugh told CBS Baltimore.
The idea behind the van is simple: using shell casings and evidence to trace a gun’s owner faster.
Like most other Democrats, Pugh is blinded by her own politics as to the real causes of gun violence – the people, not the guns. Many of those involved in gun violence are unemployed, involved in gangs and/or drugs and have no direction in their lives. This is what society becomes when you remove God from all aspects of public life. Evil and corruption naturally fill the void left behind by the moral values of Christianity. If they really want to curb gun violence, they need to bring the people back God and biblical values.
