Even if we banned guns outright gang members would still get their hands on them, Dems know this, right?
(CNSNews.com) – Vice President Joe Biden’s Chief of Staff Bruce Reed, in advocating gun control said, “If you’re a gang member in Chicago you can go to a gun store in the suburbs and have a friend or a girlfriend buy a gun from a gun store.”
Reed was discussing gun laws during an online White House event titled “Open for Questions: The State of the Union and Reducing Gun Violence”.
A participant commented, “If gun control worked, Chicago would not have had 500 murders last year. Time to target gangs – not guns.”
In his response Reed said, “With respect to Chicago, you know Chicago’s an example–Chicago the city has strong laws but it’s surrounded by suburbs and a state that have much looser laws. So, if you’re a gang member in Chicago you can go to a gun store in the suburbs–have a friend or a girlfriend buy a gun from a gun store.”
