“Earnestly” On The Wrong Track

posted on May 28, 2015

With 29 people shot in Baltimore over the Memorial Day weekend, you’d think those in authority would realize that Maryland’s extremely restrictive gun laws aren’t working. And you’d be wrong.

Rather than address the problem of runaway crime, violent armed youth and police with all-time low morale, even the president is focusing on the wrong answer. “Obviously there’s some common sense things we could do—certainly passage of some gun safety laws in Congress that could keep guns out of the hands of criminals would be one thing that we could do to try to limit the violence,” White House Spokesman Josh Earnest said.

Earth to Earnest and his boss: Gunning down people in the streets is already illegal—even in Baltimore. Focusing on getting violent predators off the streets without further restricting the rights of law-abiding citizens would do more for Baltimore residents than all the press conference rhetoric Earnest can muster.
