Baby-Faced Gang Members ARE Part of the Problem

A shared post crossed my social media feed this week. The post was from the Fresno, CA Police Department of a , and as of this writing the post was shared 25,000 times. The main reason it was shared so many times was because of the volume of humor and snark in the comments section related to the pictured kid’s appearance.

While the comments and snark about his age and size are funny on the surface, what isn’t funny about this is the fact that this kid is ALREADY a gang member and was ALREADY in possession of a stolen and loaded firearm.

It is kids like this that drive the “child death by firearm” data that Demanding Mommies, Bloomberg Inc. and Hoplophobes everywhere use to beat us over the head with. 

It is kids like this that Organized Medicine use as an excuse to invade our privacy and agitate for unconstitutional firearms laws. 

It is kids like this that the “DO SOMETHING” crowd really need to focus on, because this is where adolescent criminal behavior starts, and it is kids exactly like this that end up murdering each other and innocent bystanders in street and drug crime.

So while everyone’s busy making jokes, the Bloomies and their ilk are busy eroding OUR rights in the name of this kid and others like him who drive that child death by firearm data.

They blame US for that kid getting his hands on a “stolen” gun. (We’re all supposed to go through “Universal Background Checks” while a probably 15-year old juvenile criminal totes a revolver around in his pocket?)

Baby-faced gang member

They blame US and our lawful pursuits for that kid’s criminal activity. And they will most assuredly blame US when that kid shoots some other kid on the school yard over a drug deal gone bad in 2 or 3 years. Whereupon the press will most assuredly spread THIS photo far and wide showing this baby-faced kid and using emotional manipulation to imply his innocence. Any of this sound familiar?

Meanwhile we’re all still the “bad guys”. Still laughing?
