Either that or the source isn't valid. It could also be racism of course.......

I am sure that most criminals are FOR GUN CONTROL. What a wonderful world for them! Libs are just too dense to understand that criminals will always acquire weapons and that disarming citizens makes them easy targets for criminals.

Being a liberal must be like a child's "opposite day" in which one vacates rational thought and chooses the exact opposite position of common sense and reason.

LOL you just can't make this stuff up.

Notice that this program is affiliated with a state university, in other words....you tax dollars at work. And:

Controversial anti-violence group CeaseFire awaits new leader - Chicago Tribune

Quote:
Chicago police officers who don't trust the group's workers because many have criminal backgrounds.
That's why it was surprising to many when the city forged a first-of-its-kind, $1 million contract with CeaseFire in summer 2012, as Mayor Rahm Emanuel and police Superintendent Garry McCarthy looked for unconventional ways to reduce homicides, which eventually exceeded 500 that year.

The internet would be a heck ova lot cleaner if we could prevent waste of space threads like this one from popping up and cluttering the interwebs....

What exactly is the intention of this thread anyway? One guy, who happebns to be in support of gun control, is also a criminal, and that somehow invalidates the entire premise of the gun control argument?

Uh, No.

The same way that a criminal who is pro gun doesn't undermine the progun argument...

I'm sure if I look hard enough, I can find an example of a pro-gunner who raped someone, and say, "oh, no wonder they want to have guns" and it would have exactly the same effect. now wouldn't it? It'd be just as valuable an argument as this little bit of diatribe is, which is not very valuable at all.
