Al Sharpton, Spike Lee Promote National “Gun Violence Awareness Month”

Rev. Al Sharpton has called for establishing a “national gun violence awareness month,” and his political allies in Congress, New York Democrats Charles Rangel and Hakeem Jeffries, have pledged to introduce a congressional resolution authorizing the gesture. 

Meanwhile, film director and recent Sharpton ally Spike Lee has organized a “march against gun violence,” according to the tabloid New York Daily News, conveniently timed to coincide with the premiere of his new movie, “Chi-Raq,” which blames the criminal violence in Chicago—which has some of the strictest “gun control” in the United States—on the Second Amendment right to keep and bear arms. 

Thankfully, we can all rest assured that for Lee’s “march against gun violence” and for Sharpton’s and Rangel’s “gun violence awareness month,” murderers, robbers and rapists will all undoubtedly lay down their arms, braid daisies into their hair in solidarity, and join hands to sing “Kumbaya.” Or—maybe not.
