In Chicago, Parents Could Be Cited if Their Kids are Caught With Guns
By Jenn Jacques, Bearing Arms: Chicago Parents Cited if Kids Caught With Guns. For kids growing up in Chicago, CO2 pistols and 9MM handguns are more common than squirt guns. How do you begin to fix such a broken city?
CBS Chicago reports:
Every day on the same corner, Tamar Manasseh gives neighborhood kids the chance just to be kids, through her group MASK, or Mothers and Men Against Senseless Killing.
“If they learn to play together as children, they won’t shoot each other as adults,” she says.
I’m not even going to begin to unpack that box of stupid, but as simplistically idiotic as that sounds, one Chicago Alderman has an even better idea: citing parents for allowing their children to have guns.
