The Time To Mock And Taunt The Star/Tribune‘s Moronic Editorial Board For Being Unthinking Stenographers For Big Left Is Now. Right Now.

I’m not going to bother fisking the Strib Editorial Board’s entire response.  If you’ve been reading this blog, you know the points they got wrong, and the ones I’ll make.

No, I’m just going after their sub-headline; to wit:

Weaker gun laws have made this nation no safer. Time for a new direction.

Violent gun crime and homicide is down 50% in past 20 years. Minnesota has more carry permits per capita than Texas, but a lower murder rate than Norway. Violence outside America’s urban cores is approaching 100 year lows.

If America’s cancer rate or high school dropout rate dropped 50% in 20 years, people would hail it as a miracle. If the Strib could look forward to a 50% rise in sales in the next 20 years, they’d turn cartwheels down Washington Avenue.

  1. Let me get this straight. The DFL proposes to control violent crime by adding more bureaucracy the same way that they controlled health care costs?

  2. Yes. You point is? Remember, left decides what is truth and what is not, facts be damned. Did you not get the memo?

  3. Thomas Sowell’s point is well remembered; everyone is entitled to his own opinions, but not his own set of facts. The Strib is coming down, hard, on the wrong side of that one.

  4. What the Strib fails to surface is the fact that the vast majority of gun violence in the United States is perpetrated by black youth against their peers, with illegally obtained weapons. Yes we have violence, but the lions share of it exists in specific places with specific demographics.
