Gun Crimes Rise, Petty Crimes Drop, in ......California. Yes you guessed it the gun confiscation capital of the USA is seeing gun crimes rise despite lowering crime rates in other areas. South County San Fransisco Bay has seen violent crime spike this year where larger cities are seeing a drop, town such as Brentwood and Antioch in the Contra Costa county as well as Tracy all are seeing rise in violent crimes and crimes with firearms. I lives in Brentwood for about 2 years when it was a cow town and maybe 5000 people the only shooting was done at tin cans and ground squirrels. Its not a metropolis of sorts were deer once roamed now fleets of Prius can be seen. The liberal antigun movement continues to infect rural areas, where at first glance there is success followed by violence, joblessness and more crime. My son is down there visiting family for week, all he has texted me is how dangerous it is and how much crime has occurred with in miles of where he is at in Antioch a city just 30 years ago was in the middle of no where. My point is, the grass is not always greener and why Salem is taking all of us for a ride let us not forget the antigun groups are going after small town America. I know where I live for now Conservatives have a strong hold. But I have watched town north of me like Cottage Grove and others slowly turn ani-gun. Wtach your back, get involved at counsel meeting and county hearings. This is where they hit and it never makes the news until its too late.
