Stupidocrisy: Chicago citizens beg gangs to stop shootings

Gun control means begging criminals not to shoot unarmed people, like women, children and old folk. That’s what it’s come to in one of the most gun controlled cities in the nation. Native Sons, a Chicago nonprofit, has asked the gangs there to only conduct their shootings from 9:00 pm to 9:00 am. Tatiana Atkins, co-founder of Native Sons told CWBChicago that “Our goal is to approach our city’s gun violence problem strategically and not all at once. Things didn’t become this way overnight, and change won’t happen overnight.” Translated: The toughest gun control laws in America have only emboldened gang violence and now we have to politely ask gangs for daily ceasefires.

Atkins said “If people know that after a certain hour, the likelihood of them being shot by an unknown and unprovoked assailant are at a higher risk, they will be less likely to be out and about, and they may become more proactive with the supervision of their children.” So she went to gang members trying to get them to limit their shootings to certain hours of the night. She says, “At the end of the day, five-year-olds are being killed by gun violence, 14-year-olds are being killed by gun violence, 78-year-olds are being killed by gun violence, pregnant women are being killed by gun violence, young boys with bright futures are being killed by gun violence, fathers are being killed by gun violence, and this shouldn’t be happening,”

Meanwhile, Vice President Kamala Harris once again made the false claim that “gun violence is the leading cause of death of the children in America”—it’s not, motor vehicle deaths are—She said August 11 that gun violence was a form of a disease that is the number one killer of children. Then she went on to call for more gun control in the form of an assault weapons ban, universal background checks, and red flag laws—all three are failing in her home state of California as well as in the gang-ridden death climate of Chicago, also run by gun-banning Democrats. Facts are that gun control only puts guns in the hands of those who don’t care about the law—in the Midwest we call them criminals, not spreaders of some gun disease.

The Vice President and her political party have pushed disarming the American citizenry for decades only to prove their esoteric dream of a utopian state free of gun violence is turning places like Chicago into a living nightmare. You see, both Atkins, though probably well-meaning, and Harris and her ilk are delusional. It’s really not gun violence. It’s criminals and gangs shooting people. They are going to find guns no matter how stringent the controls. What needs to be done is doing away with the gangs and criminals. Guns aren’t violent, people are. Psalm 7:9 says, “Oh let the evil of the wicked come to an end, but establish the just.” Lying about child death rates and begging gangs to stop their shootings during daylight hours won’t stop the wicked. Thinking it will is, say it with me…Stupidocrisy.
