The lifetime odds for a death by a gun are 3 times higher for blacks than all others. Does that mean we should have tougher gun control laws for blacks because it would save lives? No of course not. But, logic tells us black communities are where we should begin when it comes to law enforcement and pro-active policing. That would make a far bigger impact on gun deaths than all the protest marches for safe schools.
Washington D.C. has the toughest gun control laws in America – it also has the highest per capita gun-murder rate in America. Laws alone will not fix this. Tough laws, tough courts, tough law enforcement, and tough no non-sense prisons is what will solve the problem! We’re lucky if we have one out of four.
“But, logic tells us black communities are where we should begin …”
Unhappily, logic also can be used to support the most heinous of racisms. Adolph’s “Final Solution” was perfectly logical. I don’t know what’s to be done with you; I really don’t.
“The lifetime odds for a death by a gun are 3 times higher for blacks than all others. Does that mean we should have tougher gun control laws for blacks because it would save lives? No of course not.”
Libby cherry picked so she could cry racism…again.
The following supports the premise for Jacks article:
Dec. 2014, American Free Press, “324,000 U.S. Blacks Killed by Blacks In Only 35 Years”
There are problems that should seriously be addressed in the black community. Of any are in denial about that it is the black community that has been lied to and used by the radical left (including the black radical left). Progressive policies and practices are part of the problem. Great Society “solutions” have worked against the black community by tearing the family apart. Refusing to address the failures of local schools because of political ties to the union, are part of the problem. Romanticizing and celebrating drug use and promiscuous sex is part of the problem. Negative views toward religious training is part of the problem. Conditions in neighborhoods that prevent incentives to start local small business as well as encourage industry and banking make jobs scarce and adds to the problem. Making excuses for criminal activity and blaming cops is part of the problem. The left does not, and probably will not, take responsibility for the role they’ve played in creating and fostering these conditions. (And by the way, Farrakhan played a big part in driving blacks from the Christian religion of their parents and into the radical and political Nation of Islam and Black Liberation Theology…that also has a hand in current problems)
Final solution? Try the left’s abortion stance!
Way to go…
You want to talk denial, Libby, you can start there!
