Clark has his finger on the pulse of what is actually happening all over the country to slowly implement Obama's grand scheme to confiscate all guns. The International Association of Chiefs of Police appear to be pushing gun control over harsher sentences for criminals. Clarke responded as follows.
I was extremely disappointed when I heard that my fellow law enforcement executive colleagues had gotten into bed with Obama and his gun confiscation mission. That’s really what it’s about. It’s not about reducing violence, it’s not about reducing mass murder or suicides. The real intent of Obama and these gun groups is gun confiscation and they know they are going to have to do it step by step. They’re not going to be able to go after that today, as there would be fierce blowback. So they are doing it in stealth ways and this IACP meeting is one of those ways.
It appears that even the IACP has given into the liberal hypnosis that gun control can fix gun violence. The twisted thought process of punishing the victim and law abiding citizens, instead of incarcerating and controlling the criminal element is astounding.
We, in law enforcement, have an obligation to be on the side of crime victims. Not on the side of the criminal element. Gun control has nothing to do with the crime and violence that these chiefs see in their cities on a daily basis and they know it. But many of them, especially in your large urban centers, are under the thumb of anti-gun, soft on crime, mayors. And they have to sing from the same sheet of music that their mayors are singing from.
But the crime and violence we see in our cities and counties is not the result of a lack of background checks, and these chiefs know that. The research and data are there. Criminals don’t care about laws in general and they don’t care about gun laws or gun restrictions. They will find a way to get around those. And that’s why I ultimately say that the chiefs’ push for more gun control has nothing to do with reducing violence. Rather, it has to do with gun confiscation.
It is inconceivable that those sworn to protect, serve and uphold the Constitution could be so duped by the ideology of the left that they would leave their common sense on a shelf and blindly march to Obama orders. Yet here we are, having a discussion about implementing an Australian style gun ban in America.
What Obama will try to do with his remaining time in office is further weaken the Second Amendment and frustrate the ability of people to keep and bear arms and purchase guns without having to jump through unreasonable hoops. Then the next person will take it step further, then the next person, then the next, and suddenly you realize gun confiscation is within reach. And that is their goal.
Between now and then they will go step by step, slowly conditioning the American people to buy into the lie.
Stand firm freedom loving Americans and fight for the Constitution and all the liberty it grants.
