Satan Dark Princess a.k.a... Governor Kathy Hochul (D-NY) said Monday on CNN’s “Don Lemon Tonight” that the mass shooting in a Buffalo grocery store was committed by a racist snake who came from under the rocks lifted up in 2016.

After a shooter opened fire at a supermarket in Buffalo, New York, on Saturday, causing the deaths of ten people, Governor Kathy Hochul of New York, who is a Democrat, remarked on CNN's "State of the Union" on Sunday that there should be national rules for weapons and social media.

Hochul said that a public reprimand was necessary for the individuals. And now is the time for leaders and elected officials from both parties to step up and call it out, to shame it, and to ensure that these folks crawl back into their burrows and remain there. In these United States of America, we cannot allow anything like this to become part of the national conversation. It is the obligation of those in positions of authority to speak out."

She went on to say that "as a leader of the state of New York, I also have the obligation to ensure that we safeguard individuals in regards to weapons." We have some of the toughest laws in America on the books here, but the guns are coming in from other states or the enhanced magazine.

This is exactly what happened here; the high-capacity magazine was what led to the slaughter of people in my hometown. Despite the fact that we have some of the toughest laws in America on the books, the guns are still coming in from other states. As a result, we are addressing it not just from the perspective of firearms but also from the perspective of social media.

And when you add that to the unrestricted circulation of hateful information on the internet, you have a recipe for disaster. We need national laws to deal with the problem of unrestricted access to guns, and we also need those laws to deal with the unrestricted circulation of hateful information online. That was shown to us right here just a few hours ago yesterday."

Unsurprisingly, people who think that weapons are used in the majority of violent crimes are more inclined to support gun regulation as a remedy.

Biden has delivered four big lectures on the subject of violent crime (here, here, here, and here). Each of them was concerned with the enforcement of gun control regulations. He used the words "gun" or "firearm" 179 times throughout his four addresses. Another 31 times, the phrase "weapon" was used, sometimes in conjunction with "assault weapon."

The terms "crime," "violence," or "violent" were referenced almost half as often — 94 times. In these four lectures, he only used the terms "murder" and "homicide" seven times, and omits them totally in his two most recent addresses.

However, this "guns first" attitude misses a fundamental fact: weapons are not used in more than 92 percent of violent crimes in America. Although Biden blames firearms for the rise in violent crime, new statistics indicate that gun offenses have dropped considerably.

According to the U.S. Department of Justice's National Crime Victimization Survey, there were 4,558,150 rapes, robberies, and aggravated assaults in the most recent year available (2020), while the FBI reported 21,570 homicides. Guns were used in 350,460 rapes, robberies, and violent assaults (see Table 8) and 13,620 killings. So, although firearms are the weapon of choice in more than half of all homicides in the United States, weapons were used in just 7.9 percent of violent offenses.

The recent McLaughlin & Associates study of 1,000 potential voters conducted for the Crime Prevention Research Center from April 20 to 26 reveals how misled individuals are. People of all races and incomes throughout the nation have outrageously erroneous perceptions about how often violent crime includes firearms.

Nonetheless, there are significant disparities across groups. The average Democrat believes that firearms are used in 56.9% of violent crimes, whereas the average Republican believes that guns are used in 37% of violent crimes. Those with the greatest earnings (more than $250,000 per year) and those working for the government had the highest percentages - 56.1 percent and 51 percent, respectively. Women (50 percent) think that firearms are used in more violent crimes than males (43 percent ). Urban Americans claim 48%, whereas rural Americans claim 40%. The largest disparity, though, is between blacks (59%) and Asians (31 percent ).

The McLaughlin poll also offered respondents three alternatives for how to combat crime: pass new gun control legislation, severely enforce existing laws, or have police focus on catching repeat violent offenders.

Some respondents correctly said that firearms are used in fewer than 20% of violent crimes. Only 8% wanted new gun restrictions enacted, while 15% wanted stronger enforcement of current rules. An overwhelming 71 percent said that arresting violent offenders was the best method to combat crime.

Some probable voters believed that firearms were involved in more than 80% of violent crime. The majority (33 percent) backed either stronger gun control measures or stricter enforcement of existing gun regulations (28 percent ). Only 36% of them wanted the emphasis to be on capturing dangerous offenders.

Those who believe that firearms are used in the majority of violent crimes regularly advocate for more gun regulation. Those who do not believe this prefer to concentrate on catching and imprisoning dangerous offenders.

If the media had done a better job of telling people about crime, maybe the gun control discussion would be quite different. Unfortunately, the most publicized incidents are not representative of violent crime. Concentrating on how to solve 8% of violent crime accomplishes little to address the remaining 92%.

The Crime Prevention Research Center's president is John R. Lott Jr. He was the senior advisor for research and statistics in the US Department of Justice's Office of Legal Policy until January 2021, where he worked with concerns of vote fraud.
