Brady Center on "crime surge"
FBI reports that, after many years of declines, violent crime went up 5%. The Brady Center promptly issued this press release proclaiming it a "a surge in violent crime" and attributing it to guns and less federal money for police.
As to the first: hmmm... funny how crime rates declined for years, as Americans bought more guns.
As to the second: why are cities so dependent on federal funds, for their most basic task of policing their communities?
