One of the village idiots at MSNBC Toure speaks out about Gun Control
Interesting that he would have my state of Maryland on the list. Baltimore had 217 murders last year, and is one of the most violent cities per capita in the nation. Illinois has some very strict gun control laws itself, yet over 500 people were murdered in Chicago last year. Toure calls for the White House to ban all assault weapons, yet the overwhelming majority of gun related crimes are committed by criminals using "handguns" not "assault" weapons. I remember way back when, when gun control supporters were rallying to ban automatic weapons, ( a firearm that reloads itself and keeps firing until the trigger is released).. Funny how many people have forgotten that. Now they want to ban certain "semi" automatic riffles, simply because they can hold high capacity clips. When was the last time anyone has ever heard of a story in which a gang banger used a sub machine gun or Tec-9 to kill a person?
"We want to envision ourselves as a nation of vigilantes protecting ourselves with our guns, but that’s not what’s happening, Touré said. “We’re an over-armed nation helping gun makers get richer by believing blatant lies that the government is plotting to take away our guns, and believing the myth that we’re protecting and not endangering ourselves.”
Toure like many progressives see things through a collective mindset. He and others like him foolishly believe that if a lawful citizens owns a certain type of gun, it is somehow endangering the community at large which represents "ourselves". Toure is wrong as usual. The government is indeed plotting to take away certain guns from lawful gun owners. He's the one who is deceiving people. Let's say that Obama decides to make the AR-15 riffle illegal to own through signed legislation or through executive order. Why is it out of the possibility that the federal government won't look up all the gun sales of all AR-15 riffles and track down the owners in order to confiscate the guns? It's chilling just thinking that the government can have the power to tell citizens (what it deems acceptable) for people to own or not to own. The fact of the mater is that Obama is not god. Toure and his cult base may think he is, but he's not. Obama can't make laws, only congress can create legislation. The Executive Branch is in charge of enforcing laws. Someone needs to break the sad news to Toure, but Obama can't save anyone from themselves.I've noticed that the media and gun control progressives are implementing a new strategy. In the beginning they exclusively used the term "gun control", but now the left is exclusively using the the term "gun violence" instead.
