It’s a feature, not a bug:
While anti-gun politicians are clamoring for new gun control legislation, a case out of New York City is proving to be the latest example of lack of enforcement when it comes to laws that are already on the books. 19-year old Raquan Wilson was back in court on Monday on yet another gun-related charge after police discovered a loaded handgun in a bag on the floor of an Uber where Wilson was a passenger.
As the New York Post reports, Wilson already has five open gun-related cases against him, including an armed robbery charge, but none of those cases resulted in Wilson heading to jail.
The left rules by fear. You cannot convince a secure, safe, prosperous people to voluntarily surrender their liberty. Therefore, you must create fear. There are examples of how this is done, global warming alarmism, abject terror of a virus with a 98+ percent survivability rate, elevating isolated incidents of police misconduct (and even, in some case, perfectly acceptable conduct) into a national crisis.
This is just one more in the same vein: Keep violent criminals out in society where they can create mayhem and fear, while at the same time working to restrict the ability of the law abiding to defend against them.
I’m starting a new category for this type of post.
