The liberal/leftist “publication” San Antonio Current reported on a community meeting hosted by District 8 SA Councilman Manny Pelaez held on Tuesday, March 7. The topic was supposed to be the homeless issue, but the Current only reported about the concerns of gun violence, of course, the guns were blamed.
Ironically, the George Soros-funded Bexar County District Attorney Joe Gonzales blamed the city’s rising crime on Texas' open-carry gun law. He said, “I feel less safe in my own neighborhood than I did 10 years ago.” Perhaps he should look to his office’s release of repeat offenders and his excusing and tolerating criminal behavior.
SA Police chief Bill McManus added, "There are more aggravated assaults with a firearm, more complaints about gunfire, and more people accidentally shooting themselves than ever before that I can remember — and I've been around for a long time." He also told the crowd San Antonio's homicide rate jumped nearly 55% between January 2022 and January 2023, according to the San Antonio Police Department’s annual Uniform Crime Report.
Liberals and leftists should stop blaming an inanimate object for crime and violence and look to people’s culture and behavior. There are law-abiding people and there are criminals.
Chief McManus should support his officers so they can arrest criminals, DA Gonzales should punish criminals, and the SA Current should be more honest and objective. Do not blame the guns.
