Here are a couple of liberal narrative-busting stories that you likely won’t see covered in the mainstream media:
Last week in testimony to the House Oversight Committee, Lucretia Hughes, a black mom whose son was “shot point blank in the head” six years ago, told lawmakers that more gun control laws will not stop gun violence. She said her son was killed by a convicted felon with an illegally-obtained weapon, and that policies pushed by gun control advocates wouldn’t have prevented that.
She said, “My son’s death resulted from a criminal with an evil heart and a justice system failing to hold him accountable for laws he had already broken.” She called it “crazy” to think the solution is more laws when there already are laws, including strict gun laws in blue cities, that aren’t being enforced, She also said law-abiding citizens need guns to protect themselves because the police aren’t doing it, adding, “I don’t need the government to save me.”
Echoing her comments was Jason Young of San Francisco, whose six-year-old son Jace was shot and killed in San Francisco in 2020. Jason told Fox News that more anti-gun laws aren’t the answer, holding criminals accountable is. Young and his family campaigned for the successful recall of criminal-coddling D.A. Chesa Boudin, who kept releasing offenders back onto the streets to do it again and again. Young said, "In my son's case, every suspect that was arrested in regards to his murder was apprehended again with another firearm during their arrest."
Not that it should matter, but both of the victims in these cases were black. Leftists constantly tell us that black lives matter, yet they impose policies that have greatly increased shootings and killings in black neighborhoods. If that’s more than a political slogan to them, then why don’t they prove it by adopting policies that prioritize saving black lives over making the lives of violent criminals easier?
