HEADLINE: Seventeen students dead in Parkland, Florida Shooting.
NO HEADLINE: One Hundred Fifty Six young men dead in Chicago shootings.
One might well ask what the difference is between the two events listed above in the imaginary newspaper headlines, and why are there no headlines for the 156 young people killed in Chicago since the occurrence of the Parkland, Florida shootings, in which the smaller fatality rate of 17 students was reported, and reported, and reported. The reason is that Chicago is a proud, supposedly safe and secure gun-free city, and all of its 156 shooting victims were black men. That‘s why the liberal news organizations are silent on the carnage occurring in the gun-free, sanctuary city of Chicago. But the opportunity to make political hay out of the Florida shootings really gets their anti-gun juices, and their newsprint, flowing.
It’s much easier to get emotions riled when white, or at least white-but-dark-skinned children are killed than when black gang members are killing each other. And this statistic undermines too, the liberal, lying talking point that when you get rid of guns you get rid of gun deaths. Actually when you get rid of guns, you leave only the bad guys in possession of guns, so you leave the way open for more killings by really bad people who are then free to attack people with no defense except to throw rocks and hide in the closet, as at least one teacher suggested is a good defense against a rifle.
When real statistics get in the way Liberals just ignore them and press on with their misleading, dishonest presentation. They don’t want people talking about black killings so they pretend they don’t happen. They pretend that gun-free zones, like Chicago, protect their citizens from gun deaths, so they pretend the deaths aren’t happening. The evidence is clear, that if we get rid of guns, every town in America will look more like Chicago.
And then we come to the subject of racism and Democrats and we know why the daily killings in Chicago are not used to sponsor parades and day-long TV spots in support of getting rid of guns. Liberal Democrats don’t care if black people are dying so they concentrate elsewhere and attack Republicans and conservatives for wanting to preserve our second amendment rights, as a distraction from their own racist practices.
But Democrats don’t want to get rid of a problem like guns and racism, they just want to use and exploit these events. For most people, when a situation gets-as-bad-as-it-can-get, they will stop the old, failing ways and try something new. But Democrats want the continuation of the anti-gun agenda to get support from their rabble, so they’ll never face the fact that guns in the hands of honest people provide protection and are not harmful to anyone. They don’t want the gun controversy to end, they are getting too much CNN, on-air, time with things as chaotic as they are.
