According to government sources, the Chicago police force will receive emergency funding to track down and prosecute the gangs and hit squads that have been terrorizing select neighborhoods with impunity for decades. Despite hundreds of murders in the city, with offenses occurring on a near daily basis, virtually no one is arrested or prosecuted for the crimes. Murder is the worst crime on the books.
"I recognize my former approach to gun violence will take a long time and meet with bitter resistance, but this new plan will have an immediate effect and start saving lives, especially black lives, right away," the President said at a hastily called private meeting. "Black lives matter," he said, "and I plan to make that more than words."
This reverses his long held yet failed policy of seeking new national gun laws that have been fought vehemently by the powerful gun lobby and left him, in his own words, "stymied." Former New York mayor Michael Bloomberg has been pursuing new gun laws on a state level, privately, using his own money, with very limited results.
Chicago has some the toughest gun laws in the nation, but like other cities with tough gun laws, black neighborhoods in particular suffer enormous amounts of gun-related violence, with very little crime control or police enforcement. Critics have pointed out that tough gun laws, and tough law enforcement are not the same thing, with Chicago as a case in point. https://www.gunlaws.com/GunshotDemographics.htm
Reached for comment, gun-rights advocates were virtually speechless, preferring to not go on the record, since they were inclined to say, "I told you so," having been calling for a new approach to the failed policies the president and other left-leaning politicians have been attached to for so long. They also did not believe the change could be true.
And in fact it is not true. Obama has not decided to go after real criminals. He continues to vigorously battle against the civil rights of innocent Americans who own firearms instead of pursuing known criminals. This is an imaginary report, showing what a real change in gun policy would look like, since news consumers never get to see one. We now return you to your regularly scheduled advertising.
This report shines light where there is darkness. It demonstrates how it might be received, and what the gun-control vs. crime-control debate could be, if the mainstream media were to start asking real questions and fulfill its role as a watchdog. Cynical observers do not expect it to happen in the near term.
Instead, the media simply marches in line behind the current administration's repetitious feckless demands to curtail civil rights and leave hardened criminals alone to commit their atrocities.
The perpetual report of murder numbers, like the Tribune has just published for the umpteenth time, adds fodder to Mr. Obama's calls to infringe on rights, but is not used for calls to find and arrest the murderers. Mr. Obama seems immune to going after criminals, which would definitely reduce crime, and bring criminals to justice.
The media seems immune to calling him out about it. And the president persists in attacking the rights of the public, calling for still more background checks, which even his allies admit will do nothing new, would not have affected the recent murderer (not "gun man," a demeaning sexist gender-bias slur against guns and men) and meet with fierce resistance from 100 million innocent and honorable American gun owners.
The American "news" media has become as big a part of the problem as the heinous villains wielding the guns and murdering their fellow black citizens with impunity.
Correction to NRA Comment
for News Media and Americans
A recent Uninvited Ombudsman report portrayed the National Rifle Association as having "only" 5 million members, contrasting it to the 100 million gun-owning Americans who are the real gun lobbyists in America. Apparently some readers, including some NRA members, misunderstood this remark. https://www.gunlaws.com/StoppingSpreeMurderers.htm
Contrary to belligerent "news" media reports, the NRA is a moderate civil-rights group, the oldest civil-rights group in America, whose middle-of-the-road positions on firearms do not attract the vast majority of gun owners in America.
This is typically misrepresented in the so-called mainstream media as extreme, yet are too modest to appeal to a large swath of American gun owners.
When anti-gun-rights activists like the current president Barack Hussein Obama, whose middle name is not supposed to be used, or Hillary, whose other names are less frequently used (due to disapproval of her husband's background-check law and other factors, according to critics), stridently recommend "solutions" that repeatedly do not work, of course armed Americans resist and protest their actions.
The NRA's modest proposals include gun-safety education, marksmanship training, and armed response to the illegal use of force. They are the largest gun-safety training group on planet Earth. Their activities have been shown to be effective in reducing accidents, strengthening character and stopping vicious criminal perpetrators. The media fails miserably in portraying this side of this honorable group, violating journalism ethics standards.
To see what really strong measures look like you would have to consider a group like Jews for the Preservation of Firearms Ownership, http://www.jpfo.org, whose "Never Again!" position the media won't even mention, let alone belittle and deride.
The NRA, with its wholesome and moderate stance does not go anywhere near calls to eliminate "papers" for the right to carry, repeal of the 1968 Gun Control Act that was copied from the 1938 Nazi gun laws by former U.S. Senator Thom Dodd (father of current Sen. Chris Dodd), http://jpfo.org/filegen-a-m/GCA_68.htm, or other common-sense but more strident gun-rights proposals. See, for example, Kosher Gun Laws on their website. http://jpfo.org/articles-assd02/korwin-new-gunlaws.htm
The political left is loathe to admit it but observers are well aware that the furor raised by promoting mass murderers works wonders for arousing sentiment against gun owners and gun ownership, and works toward building sentiment for gun confiscation, repressive laws and gun control the political left desperately seeks.
This helps answer the niggling question of why anti-gun-rights activists perpetually "dance in the blood" of murder victims immediately after a spree killer's dirty work, and refuse to pledge to refrain from such gory and immoral activity. Raising the murderers to iconic status does nothing for crime control and in fact encourages copy cats -- totally counterproductive if the goal is to make society more safe, but very valuable if you want to build sentiment to erase the Second Amendment.
The Australian Story Mr. Obama Promotes:
In Round numbers --
Australia, 20 million people, America, 300 million people.
Australia -- no ghettos, no race problem, four main cities, mostly empty land.
92% white, 7% Asian, official language, English (sorta, mate).
Comparing them to us is like comparing us to Mars.
That of course doesn't stop Marxists from the false comparison.
