Determined To Be Stupid

Chicago's top cop, who should know better, opposes a law now under consideration to apply longer sentences” for criminals who use guns in the commission of a crime. You'd think that would be a “slam dunk, wouldn't you? Because it puts the onus squarely on the shoulders of the lawbreaker, not the law abiding citizen, as most anti-gun laws do. He seems to think it's just another way to put black men in prison. Maybe so. But if black men use guns in a crime, they DESERVE it. In Chicago in 2016, 4,378 people were shot, resulting in 717 dead. Most of them black men shot by black men, except for the black women shot by black men, and a few white men and women. That means somebody was shot every two minutes, with somebody killed every 12 minutes. Most of them black men killing black men. And he thinks this is just an effort to send more black men to prison? “If you can't do the time, don't do the crime.” That's a well-known saying, and it's true. (Bearing Arms)
