Gun haters gonna hate guns

Here we go again. Per the NRA:

On July 16th, Councillor La Keisha Jackson of the City-County Council of Marion County and Indianapolis introduced Proposal No. 275, 2018, which will call for a resolution to declare “gun violence” as a “public health crisis.” While there are no specific gun control actions to be debated, this proposal is potentially filled with misinformation.

Such misguided attempts to only focus on the violent crime they deem “gun violence” and to declare it a “public health” issue do not address the causative factors that lead to violence or the criminals responsible, but instead seek policies that would only impact law-abiding gun owners.

Plus, they are completely meaningless in the grand scheme of things. Why doesn’t the City of Indianapolis start clearing the panhandlers off of city street medians, instead? Or concentrate on fixing its century-old infrastructure that’s steadily collapsing into the ground? Or figure out how to start making some actual coin on properties it owns but doesn’t control? (Lucas Oil Stadium, Bankers Life Fieldhouse)

And on reading this piece of crap, it becomes clear that she’s relied on the biased Brady Campaign to End Gun Violence (AKA “Brady Bunch”) for her statistics.  Sigh.

Public health crisis? Bah. I’ll bet you have armed security, Councillor. So stuff your hatred of guns where the sun don’t shine and do some actual good for the City.  Or get the hell out of public office.
