WI: ‘You Know How Long It Takes to Get an Illegal Gun on the North Side of Milwaukee? Minutes.’

Wisconsin’s largest city set a grisly record this summer: In July, Milwaukee had already experienced more fatal shootings than it did in all of 2014. Of the 96 Milwaukeeans murdered so far this year, 79 were shot. All but eight people shot fatally were male; all but nine were African-American.

And liquor was available during prohibition...

And loosies (individual cigarettes) are being sold openly in New York, purchased elsewhere and smuggled into the city to avoid extremely high taxes...

And illicit drugs like cocaine and heroin can be purchased off street corners across the country...

Where there are buyers, there will be sellers. No matter what the fairy tale goals of the gun-banners are, those items exist and will find there way into communities. Remember Pandora and her box?

By making guns "illegal", one simply drives that market into the shadows and puts the law-abiding at a disadvantage.

xqqme -

Which is all beside the point.

We have an unalienable right, recognized and guaranteed in the Constitution, to keep and bear GUNS.

While your rationale is sound it is unnecessary, and instead of making such arguments, the 'debate' should be shut down immediately after it starts by declaring the above disclaimer.

When liberty is taken away by force, it can be restored by force. When it is relinquished voluntarily by default, it can never be recovered. — DOROTHY THOMPSON
