Father Pfleger And The Blame-Someone-Else Crowd

posted on July 9, 2015

An activist anti-gun Chicago priest, apparently angry that the city’s restrictive gun laws are being ignored to the tune of 80 shootings just last weekend, is lashing out at neighboring suburbs instead of the violent criminals committing the acts.

Rev. Michael Pfleger filed a lawsuit alleging that officials in Riverdale, Lincolnwood and Lyons allow gun shops in their jurisdiction to sell handguns in a manner that disproportionately jeopardizes the lives of African-Americans. Of course, the gun shops in all three suburbs are already required to follow all federal regulations pertaining to the sale of firearms.

While Pfleger said in announcing the suit that he is “tired of seeing the bloodbath taking place in our city’s streets,” if he were really tired of the violence he’d try putting the blame where it belongs—not on law-abiding gun shops, but on the criminals shooting up the streets of the Windy City.
