In the wake of the Aurora, CO, shooting (a tragedy, both in and of itself, and MSM coverage), CNN held a “round table” discussion about the incident. Participants were CNN’s Wolf Blitzer and Kate Bolduan, Newt Gingrich, and Jesse Jackson.
You can watch the 6:20 segment here, if you want to.
Newt Gingrich, FWIW, said that the most effective form of gun control is to focus on the criminal, that the shooter should be dealt with immediately, that others in society get the message that this kind of behavior will not be tolerated, and that existing laws be enforced.
But what had to be the “best” statement came from Jesse “Love Child” “Do as I say, not as I do” “Trayvon Martin” “You Can’t Vote Against Health Care and Call Yourself Black” “Blacks are under attack” “Hymietown” Jackson: “We Must Move From Prayer and Condolences To Policy.” He actually said that! And this from a man who, based on his past statements and actions, has absolutely zero credibility about this or any other subject.
Besides, there is already a little something about which Jackson may have heard in this country concerning guns. It’s called the Second Amendment. But wait, that is part of the US Constitution, something with which Jackson’s party is trying to discard, or ignore, or circumvent.
Jackson’s solution to the “gun problem” is to limit access. I guess he’s never heard the old saying, “When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have them.” Or this old saying: “When seconds count, the police are only minutes away.” I would personally contend that this second saying is applicable in the Aurora, CO, case.
At the 4:06 point in this video, Jackson makes the statement: “What about the 71 people who were shot …?” Here he actually asks a very good question. Gingrich answers that question at the 5:25 point when he says that he would aggressively enforce existing laws. But Jackson doesn’t want to hear what Gingrich has to say. He thinks that more laws will somehow make us safer.
And we are familiar with Rahm Emanuel’s solution to the gun violence problem: beg the gang-bangers to not shoot children.
So Jesse, there is already a policy in play here. The policy is called “existing laws.” All we have to do is enforce them!
But that’s just my opinion.
