As the nation's political left drives toward a civil collapse, One of the prime objectives is to break down civil society through crime. And to compound that problem, the far left has gained the offices of the prosecutor's office and mayor's office.
Just this week, 2 Los Angeles police officers were murdered after the district attorney failed to press the court for a mandated prison sentence. The sentence is for already being a convicted felon; and... Possessing a firearm! Instead, the LA prosecutor agreed to let him loose on the city. He is now accused of getting yet another firearm and then killing 2 police officers!
But the problem also has a federal component. In May of 2000, a younger Wayne LaPierre of the NRA told ABC News some blunt realities.
Referring to then president Bill Clinton, Mr. LaPierre said: ''I've come to believe that he needs a certain level of violence in this country. He's willing to accept a certain level of killing to further his political agenda and his vice president, too.''

Yesterday, California's leftist governor got on Truth Social and immediately demagogued the gun violence stats by pointing out the top 10 deadliest states.
They just happen to be states whose statewide govt. is more Republican leaning, but the largest metro areas are Leftist strongholds.
So a dangerous metro area can end up making the whole state look dangerous. Of the 13 Deadliest cities in our list, 9 of them are in states who had Republican governors.
Kansas City & St. Louis both made this list, but most of Missouri is like Springfield & Branson; conservative and liberty-loving.
Newsom conveniently ignores the big cities' crime problems, and pointed his finger at the state governors and legislators.
Mark McCloskey & his wife were alerted to a band of BLM rioters in their gated St. Louis neighborhood. Not because Missouri is so lawless, but because St. Louis is.
The leftist local govt. had the McCloskey couple indicted for the crime of endangering others by standing barefoot on their front steps with legal firearms.
The leftist prosecutors never indicted the rioters trespassing on private property.
Many lives were lost during those riots, but the McCloskeys never had to fire a shot. Just their show of armed preparedness convinced the mob to go find other targets for pillaging.
It took a pardon from the Republican governor, to put the troubles to an end for the McCloskeys.
