Most Americans of mature thought are tired of the Left’s treatment of Hillary’s at-risk classified emails as if it were merely a harmless use of communication. Today, Rep. John Conyers (D-MI) made the dismissive statement in a Congressional hearing that it appears her emails are taking precedence over gun violence. His comment emphasizes his party’s desire to deflect attention from the huge danger her irresponsible actions, in violation of State Department regulations, have put us at risk. What she did endangers ALL Americans for the foreseeable future and in many ways we cannot easily prevent.
Gun violence is far more preventable. However, unlike Clinton’s negligence (which requires consequences, Mr. Comey), it can be better curbed by returning to the values which made the U.S. special, and not by even more laws which handcuff honest citizens. As evidenced in a Walter Williams column:
“Youth involvement with guns has a long history. The 1911 second edition of the Boy Scout Handbook made qualification in NRA’s junior marksmanship program a prerequisite for obtaining a BSA merit badge in marksmanship. In 1918, the Winchester Repeating Arms Co. established its own Winchester Junior Rifle Corps. The program grew to 135,000 members by 1925. In New York City, high school gun clubs were started at Boys, Curtis, Commercial, Manual Training and Stuyvesant high schools. I would like to ask America’s anti-gun fanatics what accounts for today’s mayhem: Have guns become more evil or have people become more evil?1
… Wonder why Rep. Conyers is overlooking abortion violence which takes hundreds of thousands of innocent lives each year across our nation?
