Fact Check: The Truth About Stopping Gun Violence
Democrats really like gun buybacks. Joe Biden says he'll order a gun buyback on day one of his Presidency. It would be mandatory, of course. Democrats claim this will end the wave of mass shootings and inner city gun violence in America.
Except, that's not the root cause of the problem.
We've always had guns. In fact, people used to carry them around. In Switzerland, nearly every household has an automatic assault weapon. In Israel, you see young people carrying Uzi submachine guns everywhere. Canada has lots of guns too. None of those countries has the gun violence problem we have.
What's the difference?
Of the 27 worst mass shooting incidents in America, 26 of them were committed by men raised without fathers. The same goes for inner city gun violence. America has a fatherlessness problem. That's because America has a government dependency problem. The more politicians promote government dependency, the more children grow up without fathers. Those other countries do not have epidemic fatherlessness like us.
So what's the solution?
Rather than a gun buyback, how about a father buyback? The government should end all government dependency programs that encourage single parenting, and replace them with a father buyback program. Pay an incentive for reestablishing dual parent families. Bam. Epidemic solved.
Write your representatives and urge them to support the father buyback program. Let's put fathers back in families and reduce gun violence for real.
