Chicago Mayor blames Fort Hood Masacre on guns

Does the Mayor honestly believe that a civilian ban on guns would have stopped this crazy Jihadist. Does the Mayor honestly think that a ban on possession would stop AQ from instructing and recruiting extremists to their cause in this country? It hasn’t stopped the drug lords from tearing up his city.

Before you watch the video, read this from Founding Bloggers, and make sure you read the entire post. It’s not long … but it is on the mark.

With no pogrom backlash after 9/11, no pogrom backlash after Bali, no pogrom backlash after Madrid, no pogrom backlash after London, no pogrom backlash after Mumbai, no backlash after countless other Jihad attacks, why would there be any reason to believe the reaction would be any different in this case? As we have written before, the West has already passed this particular civility test.

The Mayor is using a straw-man argument that conveniently provides him with an opportunity to politicize the terrorist attack as part and parcel with America’s love of guns.

It’s the same point I made in an e-mail to a listener today. In it he made the point that General Casey had reason to be concerned that there might be some racist backlash in the Army. As I replied to him, although FB was much more eloquent, there is just no reason to believe there will suddenly be a backlash when there has been none to date.

There certainly is no reason to blame guns.

    Ironic, a city which not that long ago LOST its bid to host the 2016 summer olympics, which has a HUGH PROBLEM with violent crime,  Mayor Richard says the Fort Hood masacre  is the FAULT OF GUNS? GIVE ME A BREAK! Even the Free Republic posted thread of this blog article Jim had A LOT of responses. I hope this FR thread and responses MAKES YOUR DAY JIM! :)=^..^=

    Jim, Unfortunately the military has a shortage of personnel with critical language skills.  It is these very people who are being recruited to join so they can use their foreign language skills to 'help' the military.  These folks are not under the same scrutiny as that of a regular soldier.  Often times, they are sort of 'brushed off' when they make provocative comments. This must stop!

    What else can we expect from the mayor from the only city in the USA that lost property after 9/12/2001 due to terrorism. The head of the Chicago political machine destroyed Meigs field under the pretense that the airport could be used to stage an attack. He sent bulldozers in on a Sunday night to destroy the property stranding  16 aircraft.
