Representative Jackson Lee: “Don’t Condemn The Gangbangers,” It’s The Guns’ Fault

0

Last week, Representative Sheila Jackson Lee spoke on the House floor in favor of more restrictions that prohibit law-abiding citizens from protecting themselves and their families from criminals. She pleaded with fellow lawmakers to run to the defense of the gangbangers, telling them that it’s not the criminals’ fault. It’s that we don’t have more laws restricting guns:

“Don’t condemn the gangbangers, they’ve got guns that are trafficked — that are not enforced, that are straw purchased and they come into places even that have strong gun laws. Why? Because we don’t have sensible gun legislation. I’m going to agree with my friends on the other side of the isle. Our Republican friends, let’s enforce the gun laws that we have – – who would run away from that. That’s a sensible proposition. Put a resolution on the floor of the House – – let’s enforce gun laws that we have.”

Chicago’s murder rate is so high because they don’t have strict enough gun control, and that neighboring states don’t impose the same restrictions that Illinois does. So, don’t blame the criminals. It’s not their fault. It’s that we don’t have universal gun control. If we didn’t have any guns at all, these criminals wouldn’t be able to kill each other. Poor gangbangers. They just need more rehabilitation.

I guess she feels the same way about Adam Lanza, the person responsible for the crisis that liberal politicians wouldn’t dare let go to waste. It wasn’t his fault that he killed all those kids and teachers. It was because guns exist, and he got his hands on some of them.
