USA – -(Ammoland.com)- In the wake of his cousin’s senseless and tragic murder, Chicago Bulls shooting guard (!) Dwyane Wade is lashing out at Chicago’s “weak gun laws,” The Associated Press Reports.

“[H]e has urged city officials in his hometown to enact changes to help both citizens and police,” the report explains.

“There’s other cities that have way tougher gun laws,” Wade asserted. “We have weak gun laws.”

In the interests of giving monopoly of violence advocates that “national conversation on guns” they claim they want to have – as long as they get to be the ones who do all the talking – by all means, let’s urge Wade to flesh out what it is he wants. But let’s then also expect him to provide verifiable assurances that such laws would have made any difference in the case of his cousin, the 90 people murdered in Chicago in August, or the 700 homicides the Windy City’s violent criminal element is expected to “achieve” by year’s end.

What is it he wants? Specifically?

Does he know what laws already exist and were allegedly broken by the two alleged murderers allegedly out on parole who allegedly shot his stroller-pushing cousin to death when they were allegedly trying to kill someone else?  And when Chicago PD says the city's criminals get their guns from Indiana, is there a reason they don’t also inform the public that’s a violation of federal and state laws?

When Wade says his own children are afraid of the police, why is that? And why would he then want the cops to be the “only ones” with guns?

What “changes” does Wade want? He shouldn't be allowed to get away with just saying “Something must be done.”  All the gun-grabbers say that. Hillary says that.

What do they mean by “something”?  And when will “something” be “enough”?

And, noting who is committing the majority of Chi-Town’s “gun violence,” does he agree with Michael Bloomberg, that there ought to be race-based disarmament laws?

The floor is yours, Mr. Wade.

In this case, the shooters, both with extensive criminal records were firing their weapons at another target. This is the mind set. They have a weapon, see a target and fire. There is no concern about background or others possibly in danger. It happens every day. If these individuals can get weapons so easily, something is wrong.

No doubt. The problem is how to solve it without infringing on the vast majority.

Oh, I don’t know – how about keeping them in prison where they obviously belong?

@Tim – “These individuals” get weapons so easily because they are criminals. How many laws were broken before they even pulled the trigger? All the laws in the world only apply to the ‘law abiding’. So more gun laws will never work, but ‘mandatory’ prison sentences for those who break current law will keep them off the streets. Like former Philadelphia Mayor/Police Commissioner Frank Rizzo, who was hated by the ‘Left’, used to say – “The streets are safe, but some of the people walking them are dangerous.” How true? LOL

Shut up and play basketball. Looks like another spokesman emerged from the ‘Monochrome Sports Coalition’ and wants to get ‘political’. Last time it was Kaepernick.

When someone is that stupid saying that Chicago has weak gun laws it is hard to respond. Such ignorance speaks for itself

My eloquent response to him is “You truly are one stupid [email protected]@@er!” Because the stupidity of his words is simply staggering.

If gun laws worked Chicago would be the safest city in the world.

I still laugh thinking about how Dirk Nowitzki completely humiliated wade back in the 2011 nba finals after he was caught by cameras mocking Dirk for having the flu.

Or this gem, where wade injured his elbow during a game and burst into tears – requiring a wheelchair (!) to haul him off the court:

Even the pro soccer players are laughing at that pathetic display!

That was pleasant news…however……I am getting ready to experiment with black powder reloads and,right now, the only negative aspect is, of course, the smoke and the excessive carbon build up on gun parts

Just take it into the shower with you when you get home. Soapy hot water is the best cleaning solvent for the residue from that “Holy Black” propellant. I rinse mine in Very Hot water, dry with a couple of patches down the bore and a towel on the outside. Follow up with a thin coat of a good quality gun oil and you are “Good to Go” as they say.
