On average, according to the latest FBI statistics, there are 46 people murdered in the U.S. every day — though it is notable that since President Donald Trump’s election, the murder rate is declining.
On Saturday, the whole nation heard about one murder. A sociopathic assailant and self-proclaimed anti-Semite attacked the Chabad of Poway synagogue near San Diego, leaving one dead and three others injured. This attack followed a similar sociopathic hate template of the heinous attack against the Tree of Life synagogue in Pittsburgh last October, which left 11 dead and seven wounded. The California attack was stopped by a good guy with a gun — Navy veteran Oscar Stewart and Border Patrol Agent Jonathan Morales, who were in the congregation, charged the assailant and chased him from the premises. Morales fired at the assailant. Stewart concludes, “It takes a good guy with a gun to stop a bad guy with a gun.”
The 19-year-old San Diego assailant was said to have taken his inspiration from the deadly attack on a mosque in New Zealand in March, though that attacker was an “eco-fascist” who did not fit the Left’s “right wing” profile. Far more consequential in terms of loss of life is the worldwide assault on Christians by Islamists — including the Sri Lanka attacks last week, in which 253 Christians were murdered by Islamists at Easter church services. But that does not fit the Democrats’ political narrative either.
