Sessions Brings Back “Project Safe Neighborhoods”
Kevin Felts 10.09.17
Gun-grabbing liberals like to ignore the fact that there are the thousands of gun laws already on the books. Reading through numerous left-leaning websites, it would be easy for the uneducated to believe anyone can use the “gun show loophole” to buy a “fully automatic assault weapon.”
Something else anti-gunners like to ignore is when gun laws are enforced. Often when such laws are enforced however, bleeding-heart liberals proclaim it is not the persons fault for committing a crime with a gun. Rather than forcing the criminal to take responsibility, liberals proclaim the person is a result of “society.”
In either case, Attorney General Jeff Sessions about to make sure gun laws are enforced.
From the Star Tribune – Federal gun traces hit record high in Minnesota amid aggressive prosecutorial push.
The U.S. attorney’s office charged 125 people with violent crimes in its most recent fiscal year — Oct. 1, 2016 through Sept. 30, 2017 — up more than 13 percent from the previous year. A spokeswoman described the numbers as conservative because they don’t include drug cases, which can also involve firearms charges.
On Thursday, Sessions announced that he would be reigniting a George W. Bush-era strategy to further crack down on gun and gang crimes, dubbed Project Safe Neighborhoods. U.S. attorney’s offices are being tapped to take the lead on working with other law enforcement and community groups while ramping up cases that carry longer possible prison sentences.
The real problem with gun crime is that criminals, which of course includes those who use guns to commit crimes, are in a revolving-door justice system. Is the solution to strictly enforce the laws already on the books, rather than passing more gun laws? Should we use the “three strikes and you’re out” laws against drug dealers and gang-bangers and lock them up forever?
We have laws in place to protect the public from criminals, and if the criminals were taken off the streets forever, gun-grabbing liberals would have nothing to complain about.
It’s almost as if gun grabbers want criminals to commit crime.
If we enforce the laws already on the books to take criminals off the streets, gun-grabbers will have no platform.
Editor’s note: Asking for strict enforcement of any anti-gun law could easily snowball…
