“Gun Control Utopia Chicago: More Than 40 People Shot, 5 Killed Over Weekend”
Sometimes irony just sucks ass.
Tie this together with the FEDEX shooting — the building featured a prominent placard showing that firearms were not permitted on the premises, something the shooter either inadvertently overlooked or, to the more cynical, used to his advantage — and what you have is yet further evidence that the anti-gun crusade, much like the left’s environmental crusade, is meant to garner power and has nothing much to do with safety at all. Statistics be damned. Carnage be damned. The left needs you disarmed and they’ll pull out every emotional appeal they can, and use the heartbreak of any useful idiot they can, to take away the one right that protects all the others.
“Stand your ground” and “castle doctrine” laws are coming under fire from anti-gun groups, who use anecdotal and isolated instances of malfeasance to again claim that law-abiding American citizens must, for their own safety (and the safety of others) be effectively stripped of a natural right.
Ironically, these are the same types who advocate on behalf of criminals, whether through a lawless Executive, or the Attorney General’s office. Criminal as victim, law-abiding citizen as “controversial” for defending himself.
At least this time, we can jump right to “racist” without having to go through the whole “white Hispanic” thing again. So we’ve got that going for us.
Like I said: sometimes irony sucks ass.
