Rahm Emanuel: “If you stop a criminal from ever getting access to whatever type of gun, you stop the criminal”

Posted by on Jan 31, 2013 at 8:59 pm

Is this guy just being totally duplicitous or is he really that naive? Whatever the case, he’s dangerously incompetent. The hapless Chicago mayor said today he’d put another 200 cops on the street in a futile attempt to stop the daily carnage, but honestly he should just give up now and resign if he’s this stupid.

As the carnage has mounted, Emanuel has started a crusade to ban semi-automatic, military-style weapons and he has urged pension funds, banks and mutual funds to divest their investments in companies that make those rifles. The vast majority of murders in Chicago, however, are committed with handguns.

Emanuel today said he has made it a priority to deal with handguns by calling for background checks for all handgun purchasers by closing loopholes and exemptions on purchases at gun shows. “Now, I’ve talked about the assault weapon because I think that’s important. I’ve also talked about the fact that you need a ban on (large) clips.”

“If you stop a criminal from ever getting access to whatever type of gun, you stop the criminal,” he said.

Perhaps Chicago has never had any crimes committed without the use of a gun during his reign of disaster. But we doubt it.

    He’s not that stupid- Rahm’s another Obammunist/NWO true-believer out to raze this country to the ground

    Everybody and his dog in Chi Town knows gun control doesn’t work…

    Yeah, and if I started to crap gold bars, I’d be rich.

    This guy is a sworn enemy of the American people and their rights and liberty.

    I’d say “the stupid is strong with this one”, as Yoda would put it, but I can’t believe that “Mr. Never Let A Crisis Go To Waste’” is that dumb.

    He simply wants a disarmed populace that will have no choice but to submit to whatever he and his boss (the Self-Exalted One) dream of inflicting on them.

    As was once said on the original Star Trek, that should frighten any sane man. Or, especially, any sane woman. (For reasons too obvious to require reiteration here.)

    Virtually none of the murders in Chicago are being committed with semi-automatic rifles. They’re mostly being committed with 9mm handguns.
    Before 9mm handguns were common, they were committed with revolvers, mostly. That’s because revolvers were what you could get easily in, say, 1980. 9mm handguns are the most common now, so that’s what gang members and hoods use.
    Rahm Emmanuel’s city has a murder problem among people who already can’t get guns legally. So more restrictions on the responsible citizen will leave the criminals in the same situation they are in now — except that they’ll believe fewer responsible people have guns and they’ll feel safer attacking them.
