Mayor Barrett tries to pull out all the big (and little) guns in State of the City address.

February 20th, 2006

In his State of the City Address Monday, discount viagra sickness Milwaukee Mayor Tom Barrett said:

As a community, viagra pilule we must intensify our efforts to hold criminals responsible and attack the root causes of crime.

He then proceeded to hold no one responsible and blame the whole problem on guns.

After a bunch of gun control rhetoric, find Mayor Barrett said:

I understand that enacting these laws will not stop thugs with guns overnight.

 
Try “will not stop thugs with guns… period.”

If Democrats ever manage to outlaw the ownership and manufacture of firearms, I wonder how they will explain the fact that the “thugs” will still have guns.

I’ve already debunked the claim that guns CAUSE crime.

What causes crime in Milwaukee is an inner-city culture that does not value education, traditional families, or taking responsibility.

Democrats do Milwaukee’s black community no favor by once again ignoring the real root causes and blaming every gun and everyone else.

    Yet, this does not surprise you does it? There is also a lack of respect for life. Through out our entire culture. Of course he’ll blame the guns. To not do so would force him and every other lefty out there to face the facts. That is not to be allowed, so they blame the tool, not the user, or the societal breakdown.

    The mayor’s state of the city speech was quite horrible on substance and results. F for failing to lead if you ask me.

    […] I have stated on several occasions that the main problem in America’s inner cities is not racism…or guns…it’s the culture. […]
