Gun-Controlled Baltimore Suffers 5 Murders in 8 Different Shootings

By David Kamioner | January 26, 2020

As we await Super Bowl Sunday we can see another type of game being played out in liberal bastions across America. It’s one where everybody loses.

On the recent weekend earlier in January when the AFC playoffs were held in Baltimore, twelve people were shot.

Five of those individuals were killed in eight separate shootings.

Baltimore had 348 homicides last year, that it knows of, its fifth year in a row with over 300 murders and the deadliest year ever on a per-capita basis.

City council president Brandon Scott, a Democrat running for mayor/captain of the Titanic wrote, “A day that should have been met with pride and community was once again flooded with violence and loss,” recalling the football game. Baltimore lost that game too.

“This violence is heartbreaking and must stop now,” continued Scott, in a crocodile sentiment that could be replaced with effective action if the Baltimore pol understood the concept of empirical evidence.

Federal crime stats paint a clear picture. Of the top five urban murder theme parks in the U.S., per 1,000 in population, all of them are Democrat-run cities with stringent gun control laws. Ergo…

They are: 1) East St. Louis, MO. 2) Chester, PA. 3) St. Louis, MO. 4) Gary, IN. And five, the Charm City itself, Baltimore, MD.

As has been said, “An armed society is a polite society,” and one wonders what the murder rate would be in Baltimore if every time a miscreant pulled a weapon a law-abiding citizen or citizens close by pulled out their own weapons.

Would that shooter be more or less likely to unholster their weapon if they knew they would also get shot?

Don’t know the answer? Ask Jack Wilson, who saved many from probable death by recently taking out a vicious gunman at a Texas church service.

Better yet, ask the gunman. Oh gee, I guess we can’t. And anyway, Gil Scott-Heron seems to have the right answer. 

How many decades do we have to suffer urban murder rates that turn our inner cities into shooting galleries until the people in those depressed locales get back the constitutional right to shoot back?

In all likelihood, given the current political leadership in Baltimore and other Democrat-run cities, many more.

Bloomberg Trolls Trump and then Loses the Ball

By David Kamioner | January 23, 2020

President Trump and Dem primary candidate Mike Bloomberg traded barbs over Twitter Thursday, as Trump accused the former NYC mayor of covertly planning to abandon the Dems if he doesn’t get the nomination.

Bloomberg is currently promising to fund the Dem campaign all the way through November, which Trump says is buying him a waiver on political strikes.

Here’s the president’s attack.

And Bloomberg’s response.

Also included in the tweet is a story about a campaign spot Bloomberg is running against Trump. In the spot Bloomberg, very shrewdly, hits Trump from the right to appeal to moderate Dem votes in the south. This is in keeping with Bloomberg’s hold your fire until Super Tuesday strategy of playing rope-a-dope until that group of primaries on March 3rd.

But still more interesting is his succinct tweet response to the president.

No histrionics, no drama, no weird screaming leftism. What we see there from the Bloomberg team is concise calculated on target sarcasm. He seems to have bought a sharp media team with his billions.

Party-hopping Manhattan mogul vs. party-hopping Manhattan mogul. It would be an interesting fall race.

But all is not rosy for the former GOP and then Independent mayor.

Wednesday he inexplicably went after Texas hero Jack Wilson. Wilson’s quickdraw response saved countless lives when a gunman opened fire in a church last month.

Bloomberg opined on Wilson, “Yes, it may be true — I wasn’t there and I don’t know the facts — that somebody in the congregation had their own gun and killed the person who murdered two other people. But it’s the job of law enforcement to have guns and to decide when to shoot. You just do not want the average citizen carrying a gun in a crowded place.”

Either the same media team that produced the superb response to the tweet dropped the ball bigtime on this one, insulting a national hero and a man wildly popular especially in the south, or the candidate was solo riffing off-script and reverted to his Manhattan nanny state tendencies.

Which Bloomberg will we see before and after Super Tuesday?

The canny operator who knows what to say and when to say it to a moderate audience, as in the tweet, or the liberal NYC politician who is handicapped by his quiche and Chardonnay political ideology?

Stay tuned to LZ for the answer.
