Click here to watch Chicago Police Chief Garry McCarthy preaching the gospel of gun control to parishioners at St. Sabina’s Church. Despite the fact that the U.S. Supreme Court’s McDonald decision recently struck down Chicago’s handgun ban citing the racist roots of gun control, McCarthy told the audience the exact opposite is true: the lack of gun control is racist. “Let’s see if we can make a connection here. Slavery. Segregation. Black codes. Jim Crow. What, what did they all have in common? Anybody getting scared? Government sponsored racism . . . Now I want you to connect one more dot on that chain of the African American history in this country, and tell me if I’m crazy . . .
Federal gun laws that facilitate the flow of illegal firearms, into our urban centers across this country, that are killing our black and brown children.”
You’re crazy. And the gun manufacturers who supply McCarthy’s troops with handguns, rifles and shotguns should send him a little memo about his personal attack (“living in gated communities”). Not that they will. But they should.
