U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- Senator Chuck Grassley has sent a letter to President Biden over Democrats’ refusal to take responsibility for the rising crime rates and blaming law-abiding gun owners.
You should know Senator Grassley from the Obama-era Operation Fast & Furious scandal. He is a ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee and was a key member of Congress that pushed for an investigation into the ATF letting guns flow to the ruthless Mexican drug cartels.
The Senator’s letter targets Biden’s attack on unfinished frames and receivers, or as Biden calls them, “ghost guns”. Grassley calls the Biden attack “rhetoric.” And he is right. Grassley points out that less than 1% of all homicides involve homemade firearms.
Out of 89,000 homicides between 2016 and 2020, only 325 involve so-called “ghost guns.” The Biden administration is claiming that 20,000 suspected ghost guns reported to ATF have been recovered in criminal investigations. Senator Grassley correctly points out that number is misleading. Biden’s number includes firearms that had their serial numbers filed off by criminals. The Biden administration knows that, but he continues to use the misleading number to scare the public.
The Senator also points out that Biden has done nothing that will tackle the 30% spike in murders.
Grassley states: “Democrats have recently attempted to shift the blame for the rise in violence in blue cities to not only lawful gun owners, but also conservative states. However, the data from 2020 shows that it is actually the Democrat-led cities within red states that are causing dramatic per capita murder rates.”
And he is correct, but will anyone listen to him? The mainstream media will not cover it, that is for sure.
