I read this article and concluded that we need more gun control. There just aren’t enough gun laws on the books to stop this kind of crime. (If you didn’t click the link, you may not determine that this is all about Shitcago, Illinois.)
21-year-old Jamal Dumas of Mount Prospect pushed the 28-year-old woman into a gangway in the 1800 block of North Clark around 11 p.m., just steps from the entrance of Hotel Lincoln, police said.
There, he pulled out a handgun and forced the woman to turn over her purse before fleeing, according to prosecutors.
A police squad car just happened to be passing by and Dumas was quickly taken into custody. He was carrying a 9-millimeter handgun, cops said.
Dumas is a member of the Gangster Disciples street gang, according to police, and court records show that he has been convicted three times of firearms violations. His prison record includes:
• Four years for being a felon in possession of a weapon in 2013
• Five years for possessing a firearm with a defaced serial number in 2014
• Another five years for being a felon in possession of a firearm in 2014.
Dumas also received 30 months probation for a 2012 Evanston robbery, according to court records.
His bail is set at $750,000.
Anybody do the math here? Unless my meager education wasn’t good enough, I’m seeing 14 years of hard time for weapons violations, yet this guy is only 21 years old. Yep, we definitely need more gun laws. This choir boy would never be able to procure a gun if we just had more gun laws. My guess is that if a Chicago cop got in a shootout with this guy and killed him, the copper would definitely do those 14 years and then some.
What an upside down world.
