The killer was only 15 years old.
The gun was not at fault. At fault is a culture taught through class warfare that violence is the way to solve things. We see it in the streets with the anti-Trump protesters, Black Lives Matter, and the riots over alleged police shootings. Never mind that it has been found that cops do not unfairly target black suspects as we are being told.
Davis added, “It becomes a part of the culture of an environment that has got to change.”
Davis has been a member of the Democratic party for nearly 20 years. He was re-elected this month to his 11th term in the 7th Congressional District.
“The question becomes where does a 15-year-old obtain a gun? Who let the 15-year-old have a gun and under what circumstances?” Davis asked. “There's no answer for that except that the availability of guns is so prevalent in America to the point where you almost can't tell who has a gun” anymore.
The black culture has become a thuggish culture, and despite Davis' desperate words, the fact is that the “availability of guns” will always be there. Even if every law-abiding citizen is stripped of their access to their right to keep and bear arms, guns would find their way into the hands of the criminal element. And even if it was a world without guns, the culture would still be violent, and his grandson would have been killed by some other means. Guns are merely a tool. At blame for the death of Davis' grandson is not the fact that that an inanimate object was used to kill, but the fact that in our cities we have a killing culture that will use any means, and any tool, to end the lives of others.
