    Yes - you - lawful gun owner - must certainly be the root of the violence problem

    Here's some news you'll never see in the legacy agenda fueled anti-gun owner media.

    A nearby city here, Durham, North Carolina, claims a serious "gun violence problem", and the city's reputation as being crime ridden (with regular media alerts about children and others being shot on the streets) is genuine.

    Here's a report studying the core of the gang problem in Durham. It's not a "gun violence" problem at all. It's a "serious gang problem" with impudent felony convicted gang members carrying on their territorial domination and drug market places without fear of police intervention or risk to their profits.

    How do we know? Here's the report studying what happens when a person convicted of a prior felony is stopped by police and found to be in possession of a gun:

    The media will never disclose that fully 53% of these police charges and arrests are dismissed without anyone bothering to prosecute or try the offence. These are convicted felons in violation of a number of Federal and State laws by being in possession of guns. That's more than half that don't even get a slap on the wrist, but the charge is completely ignored by the local "Justice" system.

    A minuscule number of these cases are actually prosecuted and tried, and those almost always lead to a conviction. How small? How about 6% to 17% of the arrests. That in itself is criminal.

    The only conclusion I can have is that you, lawful gun owner, with your interest in protecting yourself, must be the cause of all these crime problems in Durham. Otherwise responsible politicians, judges, prosecutors and police would be doing something about all the people getting violently attacked, injured and killed.

    If the politicians really want to "do something" about "gun violence", the responsibility and actions they must take are clear. Just read their report.

    They need to inforce the laws that are already on the books. Law Enforcement ad the Courts are simply not doing their job.......and point the finger at 'gun owners' to let them off the hook. We should demand that they do their jobs better.....not just let it pass on down the line. They need to start taking their responsibilities seriously!!!! WE are not the problem......they are!!!!!!!

    But for a city with a "gun violence" problem where small children are getting killed in drive by shootings, you'd think someone would get upset to learn that they drop 53% of the cases where felons stopped while carrying guns are charged with possession violations...

    Instead, politicians want more laws that they won't use to stop crime?

    Outrageous!
