As someone running for president of the United States, you’d think Cory Booker would be touting his record as mayor of Newark, New Jersey and playing up how much he reduced gun violence in the city while he was running the show. Instead, though, he likes to remind everyone what a crime-ridden area it is.
Maybe it’s just us, be we noticed that when he made his list of cities coast-to-coast where children are allegedly afraid of Fourth of July fireworks, he listed only Democrat-run cities with the most restrictive gun control laws, like Chicago.
In my community, kids fear fireworks on the 4th of July because they sound like gunshots. It's the same in so many communities across the country—from Newark to Charlotte, from San Diego to Chicago and everywhere in between. Enough.

Enough is right.

We should ask T-bone if this really is the case. I don’t believe my Senator, either.

Do you hold T-Bone close when he gets scared?https://t.co/GKFT2lXy0B
In YOUR community the kids are afraid to drink the water… YOUR FAULT.

They are grappling with a lead crisis in your community.

Groper Booker, in your community, kids fear drinking the water because of the lead in the pipes. This is due to your mismanagement. Now the county has to take out bonds to raise $120 million dollars to correct the problem that you couldn’t handle!! pic.twitter.com/PFHgc7WRUr

In Your Community? Harrington Park, where the medium family income is $132,000 a year. LOL. Stop trying to convince people you're from the hood dude. You grew up rich, went to Ivy league schools. The Only time you've ever been in the hood is when you're pandering for votes.

Kids here are not afraid of fireworks on the 4th… it's a huge celebration here…kids love it
— Teddi Kierstead (@NoDaTeddi) August 27, 2019
Is there a problem with the social education that they cannot connect the 4th of July with the expectation of fireworks?

Nicely ask all the thugs in those communities to hand over their guns. Certainly they’ll immediately do it. Problem solved.
