The Public Safety and Violence Prevention Task Force is scheduled to meet today at 11:00 AM.

 

We had stopped monitoring these proceedings when discussion included community gardens as a way to prevent violence and a number of other topics not directly related to gun law. Today we resume our interest as speakers will include Ed Sullivan of ISRA, Todd Vandermyde formerly of NRA, and our own spokesperson Valinda Rowe.

She informs the task force that not only did SCOTUS vacate New York's carry ban, they also vacated magazine and gun bans in other states, etc.

 

She says that solutions must be focused on those who commit violence, not on an interest balancing that affects the law abiding gun owner.

 

She calls for in depth studies to determine what might have been done to detect problems in advance, our family units, possible gaps in our court system.  She states that we believe filling in those gaps will help prevent violence.

He says guns are not the problem.  Nor are gangs.

 

Systemic racism is the problem.  The 4 pillars* will do more to stem the flow of violence than any gun law.

 

 

*Edited to clarify that his meaning is the Four Pillars of the Illinois Legislative Black Caucus.
