Failing Mayor Blames Gun Rights For POOR Leadership

This has to be a joke.

Friday on “MSNBC Live,” Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms (D) spoke about the spike in violence in her city due to her poor leadership but blamed open carry and other gun rights rather than taking the blame herself.

According to Breitbart, MSNBC’s Stephanie Ruhle pointed out that shootings in Atlanta are up 124% and asked Bottoms, “What is going on?

“What’s happening in Atlanta is what’s happening across the country. There is a combination of things,” Bottoms replied. “There are … these systemic issues, including lack of access to healthcare, including people being unemployed, people are dying of COVID-19. We witness the injustices that have happened in front of our eyes, and it’s boiling over into our streets. It’s happening in Atlanta. It’s happening across the country.”

“The irony of it is that our overall crime rate is down by 18%. But in Georgia, an open carry state, people are allowed to walk down the streets with assault weapons and we don’t have probable cause to stop them,” Bottoms added. “You don’t get to pick and choose which demographic you get to stop and question as to why they are walking in our streets with open weapons. It is an issue in Atlanta. It’s an issue in other cities across this nation, and it is one that we take very seriously. But this notion that somehow the governor is helping us with law and order is false. He has military tanks in front of state buildings. … This is a play out of the Nixon playbook: distract, talk about law and order when the reality is that people are dying of COVID-19, and this president and this governor have failed us.”

    No my dear mayor it is not the existence of guns that causes your violence. It is the SILENCE of your city that does not turn in the robbers, rapists, murderers that cause the crimes. Your citizens KNOW who commits each crime and your citizens through their silence tells the ones committing the crime that it is perfectly fine to do it over and over. Silence is the greatest cause of certain neighborhoods to be poor and criminal.
