Not "if". This is a statement of fact, confirmed in the courts.

That is something that you need to ask the Democratic Party,
especially those Democrats running the cities of Washington DC,
Chicago IL, and San Francisco CA, which have distinguished themselves
as banning handguns.

[TELECOM Digest Editor's Note: That 'if' you questioned above was the
'wrong {if}'. That particular 'if' modified the sentence about whether
or not crimes are committed (they frequently are) and whether or not
people complain to police (they frequently do); that particular {if}
had nothing to do with the later part of the statement about what
police choose to do or not to do with crime which is reported to them.
Maybe you edited my Editor's Note incorrectly by responding to the
last part of the statement but quoting the first part of the statement?

Regards the 'Democrats who run the City of Chicago' (at least) you are
correct, they all made me very nauseous; the stunts I saw them pull
off made me vomit more than once, I just did not (and still do not)
have the stomach to deal with it. I _never_ intended to live in that
hellhole once I retired and got on my pension anyway; it was a very
unfortunate set of circumstances which caused me to have a brain
aneurysm in 1999 and after a year or so of diddling around with them
have to retire early, but now that I _am_ retired mostly, I would
never want to return to Chicago and live there. I know it probably
makes me come off sounding like a hateful, bitter old man ( and that,
I may be) but the place at one point I was proud to be part of and
enjoyed tremendously, I now simply cannot stand to be around or near.
