Imagine you are speaking to a friend. He claims his kids are straight ‘A’ students. The reason they are is that he has developed a system that guarantees better grades. No matter what the situation, he can better anyones grades.
Your logical reaction to such a claim is, “show me the proof”. Don’t just throw out these wild claims. Show me what your children’s grades were prior and what they are now. Then show me that it was your system that caused the positive change.
It seems reasonable for him to have to prove his system is a success, is it not? You wouldn’t just sign your children on without some proof, would you?
So why is it that we don’t view gun control in the same way? There is not a shred of evidence that disarming citizens makes us safer, yet the left has been clamoring to do just that.
There are organizations like Demand Action.org, who’s slogan is “Demand Action to End Gun Violence”.
They want us all to “Join more than 1,000 mayors and over 1.5 million grassroots supporters to demand that Congress take action to end gun violence“.
There are self righteous actors and actresses who cry and plead for us to “Demand a Plan” to end gun violence, many starring in action shoot-um-up movies that kill more in the span of the movie than have been killed in all American mass shootings combined. Many also have their own armed security.
Yet interestingly, none of these nimrods are “Demanding a Plan” for a city like Chicago where 80% of those murdered are black and 83% of all murders are committed with a gun.
According to new crime statistics released by the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Chicago has become America’s murder capital. There were 500 murders in Chicago last year (2012), the FBI said, surpassing New York City, which had 419. However, the Chicago Police have disputed that figure of 500. They claim it was more like between 506 and 532. Stupid FBI. The Feds can’t get anything right.
Yet Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel signed the petition, Mayors Against Illegal Guns. How is it possible that Chicago has become murder-central? Didn’t the murderers get the memo that the mayor signed the petition? You mean that wasn’t good enough?
