Correct me if I’m wrong, but is it not true that most Republican states have more crime than Democratic ones?
Is it not true that immigrants commit fewer crimes than native-born; and that, once assimilated, they do better?
Is it not true that Republicans oppose any effort at gun control citing the Second Amendment, even though that Amendment deals ONLY with a well-regulated State militia? Is it not true that reducing the number of guns will reduce the number of gun deaths (Duh!)
Might it be that Democrats do more to help people out of poverty, a known cause of violence; while Republicans want to toss them in jail, where they learn all sorts of criminal skills that they can use once they get out?
So are not Republicans dripping with hypocrisy? Is it not just racism and xenophobia?
