Hey Mr. Obama – if you are serious about the problem of gun-related murder, then why not use your vast resources to go after the gangs and criminals — and leave the average American citizen alone? Or are you motives something different, and you simply lust for the power to quell political dissent from people by means of the threat of unanswerable force? This is your call – and how you choose to play your hand will tell us what you are.
Gang Violence and Gun Control
By Michael Geer
Guns and gangs. Haven’t read anything from the Left about that. Certainly nothing from Congress. But with FBI statistics showing more than 1,500,000 members of recognized gangs across the nation and something like 33,000 recognized gangs in the FBI’s stats, you’d think Gun Control advocates would list these as a major target of their efforts, especially since gang activity is responsible for at least 48% of criminal and violent activity throughout the US.
Reports about you and me and our AR-15s and AKs? All over the front page. Gangs with rocket launchers and grenades in the gun control newspeak? Bupkus. You and I and our Glocks? Terrified reporters breathless with passion for gun control. Gangs with Glocks? Nada. You and I, presuming you may be religious, a veteran of armed service or a defender of the Second Amendment are now listed with Homeland Security as a threat to National Security, a potential terrorist. Lumped in there with the likes of Hamas, Shining Path, MS-13 and the Hells Angels. But right now we’re not hearing anything about trying to take guns away from the Mongols. No. You’re not hearing some rip and read talking head demanding MS-13 be disarmed. You and me, yes. Insanely violent drug gangs? Shhh. No gun control for them, they might do something.
