Letter: Gun violence is rampant under Democratic mayors

Gun violence is rampant under Democratic mayors

The Aug. 1 News article, “Chicago gets bad rap, but gun violence in Buffalo isn’t much better,” notes that Detroit, Chicago, Baltimore, New Orleans, Cincinnati, Atlanta and Newark out-murdered Buffalo in 2016, with Milwaukee and Philadelphia filling out the top 10.

What do these 10 cities have in common? Answer: At least 30 continuous years of Democratic mayors, up to and including 2017.

The Democratic Platform for America, page 18, indicates: “we will keep guns out of the hands of criminals and terrorists by fighting gun crime.” Perhaps these mayors should read their own rules of engagement or, better yet, the citizens of these cities should vote to get the leaders they deserve. Or could it be they already are?
