RUSH LIMBAUGH: The White House is putting finishing touches on several measures in an effort to make progress on curbing gun violence. There's nothing they can do to curb gun violence. They've shown it. They run Chicago. They run Detroit. They can't do a thing to curb gun violence. They don't have the slightest idea how. In fact, as Wayne LaPierre of the National Rifle Association once said back during the Clinton years, they profit from the violence. They're comfortable with a certain level of violence because it encourages supporters of this kind of unilateral action. The more violence, the more frustration, the more people raise their hands in frustration and say go ahead. Relying on the federal government to do things that it was never intended to do and can't do, particularly when populated by leftists who are incompetent. I mean they're incompetent from the standpoint that what they believe doesn't work and the evidence is daily on display.


By definition gun control will not stop crime. And that's what we're talking about, but no the left isn't talking about crime. They're talking about removing guns from the hands of innocent people, which is the only thing they'll be able to accomplish. They're not going to be able to get the hands of criminals to turn over their guns to them. They can pass law after law after law and by definition people that want to get guns illegally are going to break those laws, whatever they are, to get them, and everybody understands this. So the objective here isn't to stop crime. The objective isn't to curb gun violence because none of this could do that. Those are cultural problems that go far deeper than the fact that guns are on the street, that guns are available for sale. The fact that guns exist does not explain criminal behavior. The fact that guns and ammunition exist does not explain why people grow up with no value base whatsoever, with no respect for life whatsoever. The fact that guns exists has nothing to do with that.
