Wow, I have enjoyed lots of things Whitlock has written, but apparently he has turned into another leftist hate monger.
WHITLOCK: Sports gets so much attention, and people tune out the real world, that I try to take advantage of the opportunity to talk about the real world when sports lends itself to that and try to open people’s eyes. You know, I did not go as far as I’d like to go because my thoughts on the NRA and America’s gun culture – I believe the NRA is the new KKK. And that the arming of so many black youths, uh, and loading up our community with drugs, and then just having an open shooting gallery, is the work of people who obviously don’t have our best interests [at heart].
So, is this buffoon actually accusing the NRA of arming black youth and loading up Black communities with drugs? Good Grief he has lost his marbles. I wonder what his agenda is. Greater publicity? Is he just pimping this tragedy to stay in the spotlight?
I think it’s obvious if you’ve traveled abroad, and traveled to countries where they have legitimate gun laws, that we don’t have to have what we have in America, where people somehow think a gun enhances their liberty, and that people somehow think a gun makes them safer. It just doesn’t. A gun turns some kids listening to music into a murder scene. And uh, you know, if you don’t have a gun, you drive home. You know, kids listening to some loud music, you don’t like it, you go home and complain to your wife. But when you have a gun, you open fire, potentially, and take the life of a child.
So, gun owners are just gunning down kids because their music is too loud now? Good Grief!
Of course, the Founders thought guns enhanced our liberties, and tens of thousands of Americans HAVE enhanced their safety with handguns, but fact are null and void to the bag of elephant dung.
By the way Whitlock, Chicago has extremely strict gun laws, how is that working out?
Chicago, a city plagued by gangs, murder and a failing public education system, is the most American of cities, says Mayor Rahm Emanuel.
In Chicago, on average, more than one person is murdered per day. According to the Chicago Police Department, the city has recorded 462 murders as of November 18th, an 18 percent increase from 2011 and a 16 percent increase from 2010.
See how well gun laws work? About as well as laws against gunning down your girlfriend worked this past weekend in KC!
