    Gang Control not Gun Control

    I'd rather be lucky than good any day

    There's nothing that will change someone's moral outlook quicker than cash in large sums.

    Majority rule only works if you're also considering individual rights. Because you can't have five wolves and one sheep voting on what to have for supper.

    One of the best pieces written on the subject that I've seen lately.

    Amen. Article is on the mark. IMO, decades of black males running away from their responsibilities as fathers and now their progeny spawning more of the same has created this climate. Packed together in big cities vilolence is the result.

    The article doesn't even cite the excellent research on the subject! (Which supports the article's title.)

    Best reasoned response I've read. Problem is, we have a grave problem exposing the sheeple to this logic. We'd better find a way, and soon!

    Interesting article. Indra-gang violence doesn't bother me at all. Any long-term reduction in the gang gene pool is a win-win for us law abiding peoples. It seems reasonable that the pool of gang members would be diminishing by now, but the flow continues. Can you just imagine what it would be like if us normal people were dis-armed??

    I wonder what the number of murdered people who deserved it is. That should be deducted from the overall statistics.

    Great article that the media will ignore.

    That is the reason I constantly correct people, it is not “gun violence” it is “criminal violence using guns” what we really need is “criminal control”.

    America has no gun problem! We have gang problems, crime problems, mental health problems, pervert problems and oppressive government problems. As long as we have no gun problems we can protect ourselves from the others!

    This was an excellent read. Anti gunners will never say its a gang problem as most bangers in Chicago are minorities. Special interest folks go in to defend them when their civil rights have been violated or so they claim. They have more rights than the law abiding Citizens. I once had a squirrel problem. I bet on a good day I could count 15 to 16 squirrels in a 5000 sq foot area. I bought a squirrel trap. I kept up the endeavor until on a good day I counted 2 in the same area We need more squirrel traps.
    Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.

    Great article. Too bad the mainstream media can't/won't print the truth anymore.

    Hmm..maybe we should have a gang ban along with a gang buy back. You could turn in a gang member and get a gift card or something
