This young girl was killed by gang members. Yes, gang violence.

She would still be dead if there was an Di-Fi so-called assault weapons ban. She would not have been saved if high capacity magazines had been outlawed. She would still be dead if the gun show loophole had been closed earlier (See DOJ survey/interview of convicted criminals on where they get their firearms Tables 8 & 9).

In short all the things that politicians are trying to do in the name of reducing gun violence, would not have saved her. So, what are the politicians trying to do them?

So obviously the new legislation being proposed, is not about reducing gun violence, it is all about controlling guns and honest people.

It is time that the “common sense” talking points of the left are challenged and the “truth” is rubbed in their noses.

The next time a politician talks about gun control, they need to be asked and challenged on if what they want to happen will reduce gun violence. It is time to set up gang taskforces in Chicago and go after the gangs who killing people.

Gee, I thought the way to control gun violence was to lock away criminals for a long, long time. When the killer is caught, it will turn out that he, in the words of Jack Web, had a rap sheet as long as your arm. And in very case, he was treated laughably easily, encouraging him to believe that no matter what he did there would be no real consequences. A short stretch in prison is not a disruption of his life, except in the sense that it is a brief interlude of sobriety and routine in his otherwise nihilistic, chaotic and dissipate life.

Why don't you collectively save us hundreds of man-hours and share the link?
