The freshman Senator certainly doesn't shy away from the truth, telling Chicago mayor Rahm exactly how it is:
“[Y]our city’s longstanding policies stripping citizens of their constitutional right to keep and bear arms have, in turn, produced some of the very highest crime and murder rates in the nation,” Cruz wrote to Emanuel, whom he suggested is pushing “a partisan agenda” at the expense of Chicagoans.
“Regardless, directing your attack at legitimate firearms manufacturers undermines the Second Amendment rights of Texans, Cruz added. “In the future, I would ask that you keep your efforts to diminish the Bill of Rights north of the Red River.”
Hey, but one of last Friday night's seven murders in Chicago was a stabbing; no gun was involved. See? Rahm's having an effect!
