With Crime Down, Mayor Calls for Gun Control?

Buckhorn Tampa MayorTampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn is a vocal supporter of President Obama’s proposals to ban guns and ammunition. Though he claims to be a supporter of the Second Amendment, he also uses the common democrat talking points like “no one needs an assault weapon” and “you don’t need a to kill a quail with a 30 round magazine.”

Buckhorn recently signed a letter to President Obama and Congress along with more than 200 mayors across the country. The letter asked the D.C. elite to pass Sen Dianne Feinstein’s (D-CA) strict gun control proposals.

Violent gun crimes must be at an all-time-high in Tampa for Buckhorn to be so fervently supportive of gun control, right? Wrong.

According to a Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office press release this month, crime is down more than 25% from 2011. The violent crime rate is the lowest it has been since recording the rate began in 1985!

Buckhorn hasn’t joined New York City Mayor Bloomberg’s multi-million dollar lobby firm Mayors Against Illegal Guns which has sent paid professional testifiers to individual states like Minnesota and Colorado pushing for state gun control measures, but says he agrees with most of what the group does.
