Once again Milwaukee’s Sheriff David Clarke tears into gun-control.
According to: Patheos
Under the rule of Democratic Mayor Rahm Emanuel, Chicago has seen some of its worst violence in over two decades.
Gang violence accounts for nearly 90% of the killings, and the majority of the perpetrators all had long criminal histories. Most are “targeted attacks” between rival gangs, according to Chicago Police Superintendent Eddie Johnson.
There were more than 750 shooting deaths in 2016 alone. Over last Christmas weekend, 45 guns were recovered, 50 people were shot, and 12 were killed, double the number from last year. It’s only been weeks and 2017 is already breaking records.
The guns used in these shootings didn’t come from law-abiding Chicagoans who face some of the strictest gun laws in the country, but from hardened criminals who don’t obey laws. Johnson knows that stricter gun laws never stops violence:
“These gun offenders have repeatedly shown us that they’re not going to play by society’s rules.”
So, he’s calling for tougher penalties for repeat gun offenders. It’s painfully obvious more gun laws will do nothing.
Sheriff Clarke agrees and suggests:
“Crack down on crime, make the punishments severe and allow law-abiding citizens protect themselves.”
“It’s time Democrat ghetto hellholes like Chicago pay attention to what’s happening in their pro-gun controlled cities instead of learning the hard way that criminals don’t care what laws are on the books. It’s never acceptable to take away the rights of good people to offer the illusion of safety.”
Maybe someone in Chicago will listen to Sheriff Clarke and more lives will be spared this year.
