“Criminals drive from Florida and New York to buy guns in Virginia.”
Funny you should mention that. I saw New York City Police Commissioner Ray Kelly confirm that just a few nights ago on MSNBC.
From, “The Last Word”
“…Kelly said that at least two aspects of President Obama’s new 23-point gun control plan might stem the tide of gun violence in New York City: requiring universal background checks and tougher gun trafficking laws. He said that universal background checks could have some effect on the prevalence of concealed handguns, which he called ‘the biggest problem facing urban policing.’
Obama also proposed a federal gun trafficking measure Wednesday, which Kelly called ‘a move in the right direction,’ saying that 90% of the guns confiscated by police in New York come from out of state. ‘We need a federal plan. Otherwise, we’re still going to be plagued with guns coming from all over. They come up what we call the iron pipeline, 95, Highway 95, coming up from the southern states. These are guns that are landing on our doorstep and they’re killing New Yorkers,’ Kelly said.”
Keep in mind, Ray Kelly is hardly a liberal. And he specifically mentioned Virginia. And jon’s here braggin’ about working gun shows? And then we have froggie with his bogus somber tone about the recent killing in Chicago, sarcastically suggesting, “Maybe the senate will be able to shed some light on this question.”
Apparently the gremlin suggests that because a girl was shot in Chicago while gun control legislation is being debated, then it’s useless…we should do nothing? Or was he suggesting, as many would agree with, let’s go after handguns, as well, and really address violence in this country. But mention that, and all these Tea Party cowboys would go apoplectic and have a self-inflicted accidental discharge ala Plaxico Burress.
