The Chicago-based Joyce Foundation, which lists gun violence as one of its six priority issues, chooses not to take sides in the debate over gun control."
How anyone could say that with a straight face is beyond me.
"What we are in favor of," spokesman Charlie Boesel said, "is a reduction in gun violence."The foundation offers grant money to groups looking to study the problem or with ideas on how to address it.
Uh huh, sure. Which is why they fund ONLY groups and papers that call for more bans and restrictions as well as denying contrary points to be presented at their 'symposiums'.
Another fabrication in the article:
Currently, several hand-gun bills are under consideration in the state legislature. One, for instance, mandates background checks in private gun sales, which currently don't require them.
That's what the FOID card is. Unless of course the Illinois State Police are failing in their duty as required by law to revoke those of people no longer eligible.
Then we have the Joyce Funded ICPGV selectively leaving out information on their e-mail alerts in order to distort facts. On HB-182 which was signed the other day:
a bill which would allow individuals to carry concealed weapons into other people's homesWhat words did they leave out? "With Permission". Kind of an important distinction, don't you think? But that's the way the Joyce's want to solve 'gun violence', by not telling the truth.
