People pay money to tour the ruins of Detroit.
Chicago is not far behind. Liberal policies have driven the middle class from the Windy City, leaving only large swaths of poverty and a few zones inhabited by the very wealthy.
But a funny thing has happened in Detroit.
Faced with the absolute, stark, cold reality that the police department could not answer anywhere near the number of calls about violent crime they were receiving, Detroit Police Chief James Craig in January made news and shocked liberals when he said Detroit residents should use guns to protect themselves.
Chief Craig’s call was stunning. Most police chiefs are simply appointed by city mayors, which means they simply parrot the line on gun control the left-wing mayors offer.
Chief Craig showed courage when he called for the citizens of his city to defend themselves.
What has been the result?
So far in 2014, robberies are down by 37 percent, burglaries by 22 percent and carjackings by 30 percent.
Liberals have no explanation for the fact that their policies don’t work and conservative policies do. When the Detroit News asked the Washington-based Coalition to Stop Gun Violence, its spokesman sniffed that more guns mean more crime.
