Press Secretary Jen Psaki seems to be getting some pushback. This time for saying the country has a gun problem, while ignoring the damage done to law enforcement by Democrats.
The discussion started off when she was asked about sky-rocketing crime across the nation. The reporter highlighted the 12 shootings over the weekend, which injured 29 people in Democrat-led NY City.
Psaki asked if America has a violent crime problem, after hearing stats from Chicago over the weekend. She then says America has a gun problem and touts additional gun control measures.

Experts have said the recent increase in crime is due to de-policing, which Democrats have supported in response to BLM riots. However, critics stress that Psaki has a different view.
While tweeting, commentator Caleb Hull said the press secretary is behaving as though there were not “riots every night and total lawlessness” last summer.
Actually in awe of how Jen Psaki spins the uptick in violence in the last year as a "GUNS PROBLEM" and not a crime problem.
Are we really just going to pretend there weren't riots every night and complete lawlessness over the summer? pic.twitter.com/J2hcM0HxcA
