    It is common for gun control zealots to bloviate about how the United States is such a violent country, and others such as Canada’s dictator in chief Justin Trudeau using the crime rate in the United States as justification to seize firearms from his citizenry. And yes, the United States is ranked third when it comes to our murder rate. Now, want to know a dirty little secret? If you remove the following cities—Chicago, Detroit, Washington, DC, St. Louis and New Orleans—from the equation, the land of the free and home of the brave slips all the way down to...

    The teenage gunman who killed a teacher and a 15-year-old pupil at his old St. Louis high school left a note calling his lonely life a “perfect storm for a mass shooter” — and was armed with enough ammo to kill hundreds. Orlando Harris, 19, left a manifesto-like note in his car before storming Central Visual and Performing Arts High School with an AR-15-style rifle and at least 600 rounds of ammo Monday, killing two and injuring seven others, police said Tuesday. “He wrote, ‘I don’t have any friends. I don’t have any family. I’ve never had a girlfriend. I’ve...

    Police Captain David Dorn was murdered in 2020 during riots following the death of George Floyd. While reacting to the sentencing of his murderer, his widow Ann Dorn blasted Democrats, “including Rep. Cori Bush for still supporting the ‘defund police’ movement.” In singling out Bush, Dorn cited the congresswoman’s support of anti-police rhetoric on Fox & Friends on Thursday. “I find it funny that she says ‘defund the police.’ But yet, she spends $400,000-$700,000 on security alone just for herself, using police officers to do it. And her own city that she came from is being destroyed by crime. Police...

    How many Americans have known someone who died from heroin or fentanyl overdose in the last 15 years? In November the CDC announced that over 100,000 Americans died from overdose in 2021. This was another new record and followed Dr. Fauci’s devastating lockdowns and Joe Biden’s open border policies. It’s common knowledge that open border policies mean more illegal drugs on American streets. Fentanyl is the most lethal drug ever created. Recently, Matt Wood from KMOV news in St. Louis released a documentary on the fentanyl crisis in St. Louis, Missouri.

Many of these killings could have been prevented .... Look no further than the case of Deonte Walker, convicted of the January 2020 murder of Justin Antonio Johnson. Less than three years before the killing, Mr. Walker was charged with at least 10 counts, and possibly more. (Under a 2020 Maryland law, criminal charges that don’t result in a...

    A Missouri looter was convicted of murder Wednesday for killing a former St. Louis police captain during a 2020 night of violence in the aftermath of the George Floyd police murder. A jury found Stephan Cannon guilty of killing David Dorn while the retired captain investigated a break-in at his friend’s pawn shop on June 2, 2020.

Cannon was convicted of first-degree murder, meaning the jury concluded he had premeditated the killing. He...
