So the Mayor of Chicago, which has the strictest gun control laws on top of being one of the liberal murder capitals of the US, wants to give his “insights” to the gun control debate. Maybe Rahm should get control of his own backyard before going national. Just a thought.
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -A fatal gas station shooting involving a man found near the Eisenhower Expressway comes as Mayor Emanuel goes to Washington to push for gun control measures.
How did the strict gun control measure help those 500 plus that were murdered in Chicago?
Mayor Rahm Emanuel has ordered an analysis of Chicago’s city employee pension funds to see if they hold companies that make or sell assault weapons. If so, he wants them sold.
Typical “pro-choice” liberal. Punish companies for the actions of an individual. Liberals hate personal responsibility.
Emanuel spoke on Monday in Washington about his support for new gun control measures. He participated in a panel with the Center for American Progress Action Fund to talk about his role in getting the Assault Weapons Ban passed in 1994, when he was senior adviser to President Clinton.
The felon, George Soros, funds CAP and is pushing the anti-2nd Amendment brigade. Those unarmed Jews know all about Soros, who turned them over to the Nazis.
The mayor spoke on the political lessons learned during the passage of that bill and how the dialogue in Washington D.C. needs to shift in order to enact legislation to reduce gun violence.
He says legislation should focus on limiting criminal access to guns. Separately his office announced that Emanuel ordered the pension fund analysis as a “first step” in removing the companies from city investment plans.
Will Emanuel ask for automobile companies to be removed since, according to liberal logic, vehicles are responsible for automobile deaths and drunk driving, not an individual.
The mayor said the city shouldn’t invest in companies that “profit from the proliferation of assault weapons.” The five city funds are worth more than $13.5 billion.
Emanuel said last week that he is working on a gun control ordinance for the city after an assault weapons ban stalled in the Illinois General Assembly. He is expected to introduce that ordinance at the next City Council meeting. It will include a call on city pensions and retirement fund managers to review their portfolio of investments and eliminate companies that make or sell assault weapons.
