Gun violence in Chicago over the weekend reached near war zone proportions with 82 people being shot between 4 p.m. Thursday and 3:30 a.m. Monday morning.
“The first of those shootings occurred Monday evening when a family on its way back from an outing was gunned down in the Back of the Yards neighborhood, leaving a pregnant mother and a grandmother dead and three others — including an 11-month-old boy — wounded, police said.”
Chicago has some of the most stringent gun laws in the nation, but murders are up 21%.
And why did the President say nothing?
Less than six hours ago however, he called a Press Conference and with considerable agitation addressed the mass shootings in Roseburg, Ore. Predictably he used this event (with no mention of chicago’s data) to demand new gun laws. (Referring to himself over 20 times in 12 minutes.)
WHAT FACTOR WAS OVERLOOKED?
This was a gun free campus. They had campus security but security was only armed with mace. Notice that most of these shootings happen in gun free zones, not spaces where people have guns and can shoot back.
Reports state that the gunman targeted self-proclaimed Christians and shot them in the head – and non-Christians in the leg.
If that isn’t the devil, I don’t know what the devil does for a living anymore. It is tragic. It’s demonic.
Certainly there needs to be tightened controls on people with mental illness getting or keeping guns. Especially because so many of these shootings come from young people with crazy spirits of death and violence.
WHAT IS AT THE ROOT OF ALL THIS?
Lawlessness. Let’s you and me ditch the PC version of gun violence and talk. As America casts off its Christian heritage, the nations conscience erodes. Keeping pace with this loss of self control is a corresponding spirit of lawlessness. It’s predictable. As God is rejected, the devil fills the vacuum. Gang activity is at all all time high because of sloppy immigration and South American Cartels have funded new networks. I know this sounds strange, but it seems increasingly clear that Liberals are the ideological doorkeepers for the gates of Hell. Followed closely it seems by establishment Republicans. Government is a bigger player than I originally thought.
Sadly the answer isn’t in less guns. Criminals and gangs will always find a way to get fire arms. Ironic to me that liberals stoke the fires of racial conflict and class resentment on one hand while decrying the violence that manifests on the other. Both strategies work for them because all roads wind up expanding Government control over your life.
We need a move of God more desperately than we realize. We need many of you to pick up a prophetic mantle for media and governments.
