This is the question.....Which of the gun laws that this congresswoman is pushing would stop the children getting killed by gun violence? She drags out the bodies of children killed by guns in Chicago......of course she doesn't point out that many of the children killed are victims of the gang lifestyle...they are hardened killers who used guns to murder other children who were trapped in the gang lifestyle.....they are not children from normal homes...... Then, she pushes the usual....Universal Background checks.....and the rest.....of course, the people doing the shootings in Chicago...did not get their guns by going through a background check, they cannot legally buy, own or carry the guns.... Oh...and they aren't allowed to commit murder with guns either.... So after reading these names to create emotions in the uninformed...which of the gun laws she proposes would accomplish what she says she wants to do? Which is to stop children being shot by criminals......? Congresswoman reads names of 50 kids shot and killed In a push for action on gun control legislation, Congresswoman Robin Kelly on Thursday read the names of 50 children who’ve died in and around Chicago as a result of gun violence. Late last month, Rep. Kelly, a Chicago Democrat, and the vice chair of the House Gun Violence Prevention Task Force, vowed to read the names of 5,950 gun violence victims on the House floor. That’s one name for each dollar House Speaker Paul Ryan received from the National Rifle Association last election cycle. “We know what the problem is and we know what policy solutions work,” Kelly said in a press release. “Sadly, the silence and inaction of Congressional Republicans has been bought and paid for.” The 50 names she read Thursday were of children aged 2-16 who were killed in Chicagoland in the last 18 months. Last month, she read 50 other names, including 21 of Speaker Ryan’s constituents. She says she’s going to “keep saying names until we do something to end gun violence.” To that end, she wants a vote on legislation that would enact universal background checks, a vote on a federal gun trafficking bill, and a vote on a bill that would reinstate the so-called “assault weapons ban.” She also wants lawmakers to vote on a jobs bill “that creates opportunity so kids pick up pencils and books instead of guns.” Universal Background checks.....they don't stop criminals or mass shooters... gun Trafficking....that is a problem of sentencing...it is already against the law to sell guns to felons.... the Assualt weapon ban...did nothing, since criminals don't use them to commit their crimes and mass shooters use them rarely, considering there are over 8 million of them in the United States and maybe, maybe, 2-3 are used each year for a mass shooting...vs. the 8 million that are not... So, again...which of these laws "works" as she says.......?
