Liberal America was left in stunned silence after a local Minneapolis, Minnesota reporter, Pat Kessler, explained that guns are statistically proven to lower crime rate.
Democrats in this country strongly believe that making public access to personal weapons, in the form of firearms, as hard as humanly possible will prevent tragedies such as the recent Florida high school shooting.
Criminals don’t care about any laws or regulations and as history has proven they will obtain weapons one way or another. Removing public access to personal protection results in criminals with easy targets and nothing more.
Recently a Minneapolis reporter by the name of Pat Kessler reported that the state of Minnesota was ranked highest in 2017 for the purchase and possession of guns as well as hundreds of thousands of public carry permits. Minnesota also has one of the country’s lowest crime rates and it can be argued that is a direct correlation with gun ownership because criminals are less likely to target areas where they know the chances of being met with opposition is extremely high. It’s that simple, criminals are notorious for choosing easy targets that they consider weak and therefore ripe for the picking.
During a report this week, a local Minnesota reporter blew some uninformed liberal minds by touting some basic facts about gun ownership in his state.
“We took a very hard look at these numbers, and we did find that Minnesota has a very high rate of gun ownership — one of the highest in the country — but it has a relatively low rate of violent crime,” revealed Minneapolis station WCCO reporter Pat Kessler in a segment Thursday.
He added that in 2017, Minnesota “set a new record for firearms background checks,” processing 473,975 checks on permits, 94,383 checks on handguns and 125,516 checks on long guns.
Mental health is serious problem in this country but guns are only as deadly as the carrier and that is simple logic. #LeaveMySecondAmendmentRightsAlone
