Snuffy Pfleger is now offering a $5000 bounty on "gun-runners."
The church's outspoken leader - Father Michael Pfleger - led a Loop rally for stiffer gun control laws Tuesday morning. The group says it hopes the reward money can help expose those who sell or distribute guns on the streets.I happen to be one of those "extremists" who believe that the government should have no more ability to control the sale of firearms than they control the sale of screwdrivers (in other words, no ability to infringe on that which shall not be infringed). That means that I believe there should be no such thing as a "gun-runner," anymore than there is such a thing as a "screwdriver runner," but even if one does believe in "prohibited purchaser" lists, and in requiring background checks, etc., one has to wonder how Snuffy defines "gun-runner."
Snuffy, you'll remember, is the same demagogue who called for the "snuff[ing] out" of a gun dealer who by all indications obeys every applicable draconian law in selling firearms. It would seem to me that anyone who considers gun dealers legitimate targets for murder must consider all gun dealers "gun runners."
And now he has set a price on their heads.
