Gun Control: Chicago's new police superintendent blames Alaska's ex-governor for inner-city gun violence and crime, and says gun-rights advocates are racist. Disarming victims doesn't prevent crime, sir.

Speaking to the choir, literally, about gun control, Garry McCarthy, former police chief of Newark, N.J., told an audience at St. Sabina Church in the Windy City about leaving a homicide scene in Newark, returning home and flipping on the TV to find an episode of "Sarah Palin's Alaska."

"She was caribou hunting and talking about the right to bear arms," McCarthy said. "Why wasn't she at the crime scene with me?"

We know. We don't see the connection between hunting and gang violence either, but gun-control advocates do.

Sarah Palin was not at that crime scene because she had nothing to do with the crime. As a defender of the Second Amendment and the right to keep and bear arms, she is like the vast majority of law-abiding gun-owning Americans who never fire or even point their gun in anger, unless someone's trying to break into their house.

McCarthy rambled on. He equated private gun ownership with what he called "government-sponsored racism" and the right to bear arms with slavery, segregation and Jim Crow laws. "Federal laws that facilitate the flow of illegal firearms into our urban centers across the country, that are killing our black and brown children," he said.

From the Communist Manifesto, (paraphrased) "Always accuse your enemy of doing what you yourself are doing. That way, when he accuses you of your calumny, the populace will be tired of hearing about it, and you can cry, "Foul", and insist that your enemy is just being petty and vindictive.

These idiots haven't controlled crime using their current ideas. Try arming legit citizens in the inner city and some of the crime will screech to a halt. There were two incidents this week that speak for the armed citizen.

1. Lafayette, La - Women stepping out of her front door was robbed at gunpoint at 5:00 AM on the way to work. She gave the criminal her wallet & lived to report it.

2. Houston, Texas - Man was robbed at gunpoint, he handed over his wallet and was shot several times.

Both Texas & Louisiana allow concealed weapons. The issue is in my view is that more armed citizens need to be there. Cooperating in a robbery doesn't mean much. Everyone who isn't a felon needs something like a Kahr CM9 or PM9 available to give the felon 5 -7 rounds at close range.

If Garry McCarthy was educated enough to know anything of history he would recognize that racism is more closely associated with the gun control movement via the Jim Crow laws than the 2nd Amendment movement. What a ridiculous set of statements on his part, it makes me question his critical thinking skills.

These people know all too well that demagoguery of an inanimate object only appeals to the
emotions and prejudices of people who are predisposed to believe the lie. The fools, knaves
and self imprisoned members of our society who have willingly turned their backs on the
very concept of freedom for a few crumbs from their masters table. Damn them !
From their lips flow poison.
