In a speaking engagement at St. George Catholic Church, Father Pfleger said the following:
“We should ban assault weapons in America. We should ban high capacity magazines in America. We should title guns like cars in America. And when the gun manufacturers make less money, the gun lobbyists get paid less money. So that’s why they don’t want responsibility. That’s why they don’t want to stop easy access. Because it’s a business and nobody wants to touch the money. Well, the hell with the money. Life is more important than money.”
Interesting thought that he is calling for an assault weapons to be banned when they already are in Chicago.
Many panels that have looked into shootings have concluded that high capacity magazines would make next to no difference in the outcome of the scenario. For instance, the 2014 Santa Barbara attacker shot everything up with every magazine in his possession holding ten rounds or less.
Also something to note, these ludicrous comments come almost a week after he made the comments “NRA will pay for the murder of your children” in Chicago.
