An Attack On Our Cops Is An Attack On All Of Us
By A1F Daily Staff

If President Obama simply enforced existing federal laws in Chicago, he could lock up every armed drug dealer, armed gang member and armed felon in federal prison and thus prevent them from committing their next murder. Yet according to Syracuse University’s Transactional Records Access Clearinghouse (TRAC), which tallies and analyzes federal prosecutions, the Obama administration has gutted enforcement of the federal laws targeting criminal misuse of firearms. Under Obama, federal weapons convictions have fallen by 15 percent over the past five years and 34 percent over the past decade. Chicago ranks near the bottom. In fact, in 2014, of the more than 6,252 illegal firearms Chicago police seized from criminals, Obama’s Justice Department prosecuted less than 1 percent of them under federal laws. And Chicago’s not alone.
