For every person who fits the profile of the El Paso shooter, there are likely thousands who fit the profile of Maurice Hill, the man arrested for shooting six cops in north Philadelphia yesterday. Based on a quick look at court documents from Philadelphia and Delaware Counties, Hill has a rap sheet dating back to 2001 that includes charges for illegal gun possession, drugs, driving offenses, assault, burglary, theft, robbery, kidnapping, and attempted murder. However, according to the Philadelphia Inquirer, he was only “convicted six times on charges that involved illegal possession of guns, drug dealing, and aggravated assault.”...snip...
Nope. Instead, they very people who have created the drive in the criminal justice system to let these people out of jail are pushing a war on guns for law-abiding people. Meanwhile, the criminals who illegally get guns every day in places like Baltimore, Philadelphia, and Chicago are never punished!
Most Americans understand that bad criminals do the most harm to public safety, not any single weapon or object. Yet the very people pushing a war on guns are the ones who support letting out dangerous criminal from prison. That begins with Lindsey Graham, who, as chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, is now teaming up with Richard Blumenthal to push a “red flag” bill stripping guns from people without due process, without addressing the issue of locking up the actual dangerous people with criminal records. This is the “lock up the guns and let the criminals out” approach.As Codrea rightly notes in the title to this posting, So It Can't Be About Crime Control... No, it can't. Which begs the question, what is it about?
Lindsay Grahamnesty may have been the hero of the Brett Kavanaugh hearings, but just as a leopard can not change his spots, Graham has not changed his either. He has always been a Democrat disguised as a Republican doing the Democrats bidding. In other words, a RINO. While Senator McCain was alive, of course, he palled around with John McCain because these two shared much in common. But neither would miss a chance to stab conservatives in the back if the opportunity presented itself. Now he wants to release gun felons while making as many normal Americans felons as possible. What a guy.
But then, you ask, what is it the Democrats want? They want to create as much hate, discontent, and chaos as possible. When society is at peace, and peaceful, nobody is seeking someone to "do something." The Democrats want to create the conditions to have a majority of people crying for someone, anyone, to "do something," anything. And of course here come the Democrats with their gun control bills, their Universal background checks, their Red Flag laws, their Ammunition restrictions, and every other thing they have dreamed up to limit the Second Amendment.
And why is that so important to Democrats? In case you haven't notice, most Democrats, and I am sorry to say a lot of Republicans, hold a dim view of you and me. They feel sure they know better how to live our lives than we do, and they are prepared to shove their ideas down our throats if they can just get us to give up our guns.
