Urban liberals rethink guns and policing amid crime spike on their doorstep

Some residents of heavily Democratic cities are reconsidering approaches to public safety amid a spike in crime that has swept nearly every major metropolitan area in the country.

In unexpected places where liberal views on firearms and policing have dominated the conversation, a growing number of people are embracing gun ownership or backing measures that would boost law enforcement in response to the rise in violence.

Polling shows voters are dissatisfied with the way the Democratic Party’s leaders have managed the crime wave.

An ABC News/Ipsos poll published earlier this week found that just 36% of voters approve of President Joe Biden’s handling of crime, while 61% disapprove.
