Enforce Existing Gun Laws with Effective Policing Before Infringing on Lawful Gun Rights. Why Did Prosecutions of Gun Crime Fall Dramatically Under Obama

Remember how often Obama undermined the police by questioning their motives?

Once again, Democrats use the blood of children to make a political point about gun control knowing full well it won't stop the next shooter. Worse still, like immigration law, when Obama was in power he undermined law enforcement and actually reduced prosecutions. See:

"Obama talks tough about gun control, but prosecutions plummet on his watch Policy shift drives decline in ATF cases since Newtown tragedy."

Now, we have an FBI that has become corrupted by the influence of Obama's political cronies. Consider this:

Like immigration, Dems are not serious about gun crime or they would prosecute it when they have the chance. Far better to use the blood of children as a political tool to frighten the uninformed!

UPDATE: One of the Soros trolls tried to deflect from Obama's poor record on prosecuting gun crime. So, rather than reply just to that paid bot, I'll add the info here:

From Politifact:
And this:
Richard Reid was already a two-time felon when authorities searched his Delaware apartment and found marijuana, crack cocaine divided into sales-size plastic bags, powder cocaine, a scale — and a loaded .32 caliber handgun, an unloaded .25 caliber pistol and ammunition for two other types of weapons.

Last week, President Obama commuted Reid’s 25-year sentence and made him one of the hundreds of drug users and dealers who the White House says have done enough time.

But at the same time, Mr. Obama forgave scores of gun crimes convictions for the offenders, raising thorny questions about whether the White House is serious about keeping guns out of “the wrong hands” — a refrain of the Obama administration in the wake of mass shootings.

Mr. Obama forgave six of Reid’s gun crimes, in addition to the drug trafficking and possession offenses for which he was convicted in 2007.

He is one of 107 federal inmates who have had gun crimes convictions pardoned or sentences commuted during this administration, including a number who used firearms while dealing drugs or who carried them despite having felonies on their records. Still others were caught lying to gun dealers or carrying weapons with the registration numbers filed off — suggesting an even deeper level of gun crime.

“This is the most incredible hypocrisy,” said Erich Pratt, executive director of Gun Owners of America. “The president has commuted the sentences of dangerous criminals who were convicted of gun-related charges. But then, he does everything in his power to block law-abiding gun owners from purchasing firearms.”

Mr. Obama has set modern records for clemency, reducing or canceling sentences for more than 600 federal inmates, more than his nine predecessors going back to John F. Kennedy combined. Thousands of other petitions are pending, and the White House has promised to continue on its path.
And in Obama's hometown Chicago which has one of the highest murder rates in the country the city ranked DEAD LAST among 90 jurisdictions for federal prosecutions of gun crimes. In 2016 murders in Chicago hit a 20 year record high. 762 murders in 2016. Many of them children. But most of those victims were black. Is that why Dems don't mention it?

Why do Dems never seem to care about these children? Answer: they can't blame Republicans! Dems have been in charge of Chicago for decades and the city has some of the toughest gun laws. But the laws are not enforced and criminals go free!
