The number of violent crimes, particularly homicides, has surged in major cities across the U.S. this past year. Democrats, from the White House to governor’s offices, now appear to be using violent crime as a pretext to enact gun control measures.

Homicides have been driving the violent crime surge, with a 25% single-year increase reported in 2020 according to preliminary data from law enforcement agencies that the FBI published in March. In larger cities, the number of homicides and other violent crimes have remained higher than usual through the early months of 2021, multiple crime data sources found.
