David Axelrod blames the NRA for Chicago’s gun violence issues

Daily Caller: On Tuesday’s broadcast of MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” former Obama advisor David  Axelrod said that Chicago’s problems with gun violence would be greatly improved  if tougher gun control laws were passed at the federal level.
Axelrod cited a CBS poll from last week that showed some  deterioration in the public’s support for stricter gun laws, but noted a portion of the poll that showed strong support for universal background checks.
“I’ll tell you what I find remarkable, and not just that 90 percent, including 86 percent of Republicans support background checks. But now they’re  going after the trafficking laws — 86 percent of Americans support the  background checks, expanded background checks. And more than 90 percent, 86 percent of Republicans.”
“Morning Joe” host Joe Scarborough was astonished by the week-old statistic.  But Axelrod went on to argue that it was lobbying efforts from the NRA  responsible for “young lives in places like Chicago.”
“I just want to say this — I come from the city of Chicago,” Axelrod said.  “We know we have had a violence problem there. A lot of it has to do with straw  buyers arming street gangs. There is no doubt and every law enforcement person will tell you that stronger trafficking laws combined with universal background checks would make a real difference.
“People are afraid of the NRA and trading their jobs for young lives in places like Chicago,” he continued. “And it is a terrible blight. You know,  hopefully people will step up and do the right thing. It is extraordinary to  have all the country on one side and the Congress on the other.”
Chicago already has some of the strictest gun control laws yet it does nothing to stop gun violence and gangs. But that doesn’t matter to Axelrod. Typical liberal, push for more control when existing controls don’t work. And blame someone else when the controls don’t work.

  1. When will the republicans get off the pine and start using drug and pharmaceutical data as the true problem with gun violence.. Suicide, suicide murders are depression medicine related in high percentages, Inner city shootings are drug abuse and drug trafficking related. Run the stats and get back to the american people and the normal amercian gun owners please. Your ignoring the true problem. Just as the democrats are to protect their circle of life.

     
    • Not only did you not provide any evidence or source for your claims, your rant has nothing to do with DCG’s post, which is about David Axelrod scapegoating the NRA for Chicago’s pandemic gun violence.

       
  2. Don’t laugh. People believe this crap.

     
  3. liberals like axelrod,they dont want chick-fil-a in chicago,they dont want law abiding citizens having guns,but they welcome criminals!

     
  4. And the stupidest thing I’ve heard in awhile award goes to
    D.( I’d Like to hit him with an axle ) Axlerod for this gem.
    “There is no doubt and every law enforcement person will tell you that stronger trafficking laws combined with universal background checks would make a real difference.”
    OK David, so the Judge will say 20 yrs instead of 15. Does that fix it.
    Because you know he’ll be out in about a yr and he’ll only do the full yr if it’s his 5th Felony.
    10,000 gun laws. We need about 6. Just enforce the ones we have.

     
    • That tactic hasn’t worked with drugs, so why does this egg head think it will work with guns? Where do these people come from and why do they send them to us?

       
  5. Why would any rational person believe anything coming out of Axelrod’s mouth . . . he looks like he fried his brain on drugs! Just look at his picture . . . need I say more?
