I always hear Democrats say: “Gun control will keep guns out of the hands of criminals”
Really? If I was a criminal, I wouldn’t walk into a gun store so the clerk can perform a background check and see all my felonies. It’s just common sense. But if you don’t trust me, I hope you trust Philip J. Cook, Susan T. Parker, and Harold A. Pollack (who are all professors at various universities across the country, and they assist in the Chicago University crime lab.), who released this study about how criminals get their guns. The results aren’t shocking, the article reads:
“Our respondents (adult offenders living in Chicago or nearby) obtain most of their guns from their social network of personal connections. Rarely is the proximate source either direct purchase from a gun store, or theft.”
Well look at that, who would have known. The study also shows that most criminals continue to re-use guns that are given to them by other gang members and friends, and trade them frequently. Which of course means that more gun control will be worthless when it comes to halting criminals, because they re-use weapons, and they don’t buy guns themselves.
I would also like to address the pure garbage that spews forth from those that believe all guns should be rounded up and taken from Americans. I honestly can’t believe that some people would put their entire defense, and that of their families, up to our incompetent government, that contains officials who care more about a quick buck than it does the people that elected them.
Honestly, would you put your personal defense into the hands of a government that is more preoccupied sacrificing American lives in order to preserve the Middle Eastern power vacuum than it is helping our Veterans? Not to mention that the average police response time is (according to this website about self defense) 9 minutes. Guess what folks, it takes less than a second to pull a trigger.
I hope you guys enjoyed my first blog post! I will be busy writing an article for the I am co-running with my friend (where I also discuss politics). And I will have a post discussing the proposed Sugar Tax later this week.
