Yet another mass shooter has turned out to be a repeat offender allowed by a crime-friendly liberal system of law enforcement to roam the streets until making headlines for striking terror. But the left plays the same broken record: ban the guns.
Frank R. James was arrested on Wednesday for the terrifying shooting and unleashing smoke grenades that left a number of subway passengers injured in Brooklyn, NY, on Tuesday (April 12, 2022). At least 10 of the victims sustained gunshot injuries. It all came just a day after Joe Biden announced his ban on ‘ghost guns’.
By now, the endless repetition of ban the guns by leftist talking heads has become a nauseating cliché. After every shooting, liberals start decrying people’s rights to lawful ownership of guns, ignoring the high incidence of gun crimes in their own states and local blue administrations that have strict gun laws. The New York shooter Frank James is the latest example.
The real cause of mass shootings and massacres by other means is becoming better known now as more people are getting on free speech social media sites and listening to independent news outlets. It’s the crime-friendliness of liberals responsible for much of the damage to life and property.
Frank R. James, for instance, has been a repeat offender involved in serious felonies with 10 prior arrests, 7 in New York and 3 in New Jersey. As reported by Washington Examiner on Wednesday, James had been arrested multiple times for sex crimes and burglary. Yet, he was out there on the streets and traveling across state lines without being tracked.
Given the felon’s public history of posting racist, anti-white videos and calling for violence, Jesse Waters of Fox News asked on his show why James wasn’t on the FBI’s radar. Seemingly, the answer is because James is a man of color (black) and his preaching of racial hate falls perfectly in line with leftist politics.
Unlike James, the culprit of Waukesha’s deadly Christmas parade massacre of November 2021 did not use guns to terrorize, injure, and kill his targets. Darrell Brooks used his car as his weapon, not allowing liberals an opportunity to blame it on guns. It took news sources just hours to dig out the long crime history of Brooks—felonies so violent and frequent that they couldn’t help asking why this threat to society wasn’t permanently behind bars.
Just a few weeks before he terrorized the Christmas parade in Waukesha, Brooks had been released by the Democratic administration of the city for just a $1,000 bond while he was facing charges of violently attacking his ex and running her over with his car.
Even in cases of police brutality, the bad actors frequently turn out to be beneficiaries of Democrat-run administrations that are too forgiving of violent behavior. Minneapolis cop Derek Chauvin, who became infamous nationwide and internationally for the death of George Floyd in May 2020, had 18 complaints filed against him, including complaints of using excessive force. But the liberal administration didn’t act against him appropriately to prevent any future incidents.
These cases are mere glimpses into the disturbing world of widespread liberal tolerance of crime and hatred that they incite and nurture in their own jurisdictions and across geographical boundaries. They let loose criminals and bad actors and bash guns or racism, often both, for their crimes. Gun purchase restrictions have pathetically failed in curbing violent crimes in leftist-run cities.
If there was any will to protect the public, liberals would stop bashing guns and start holding themselves accountable for enabling and facilitating felons and felonies.
