According to:

Sports men for Obama ? DOT com

The Joyce Foundation is a liberal, charitable foundation that, among other things, funds gun control groups.

Since 2003, the Joyce Foundation has paid grants totaling over $12 million to gun control organizations and for research into gun violence prevention. The largest single grantee has been the Violence Policy Center, which received $4,154,970 between 1996 and 2006, and calls for an outright ban on handguns, semi-automatic and other firearms, and substantial restrictions on gun owners.

Conveniently, the Joyce Foundation has a list of the gun control funding grants here.

I actually clicked the link and checked out  all the gun control funding grants they chuck out there it is 6 pages long! Here is the $$$ the Joyce Foundation Threw out to one of there groups:

Illinois Council Against Handgun Violence
Chicago, IL

Amount: $770,000.00
Length: 24 months

For its public, media, and policy-maker education efforts to promote firearm policy reform in Illinois.

$770,000.00 for firearm policy reform in Illinois ? How about taking that$770.000 dollars and throwing it into the city of Chicago to train and hire more police to be on patrol? After all Police presence does make a community safer. But yet this money gets dumped into a worthless effort called “firearm policy reform” I had looked at their website and an article about how they voiced their concern on the D.C. gun ban. I’ll be a nice guy and show the article here. Then I will weight in with my own opinions.

Statement on Supreme Court’s Ruling to Overturn D.C. Gun Ban

There is a few things in this Article that put me in  me the “Oh Jesus Christ” tone.

“a 3-year-old boy was playing with a .45-caliber handgun and shot himself in the head”

Now here we have a child UN-SUPERVISED and God only knows where or what this child’s parents were doing or any other ADULT was doing in not noticing what the 3 year old was doing. Come on what the hell people?  Common sense tells me that “Gee think you should really pay attention to what your 3 year child is doing?” It is clear these parents didn’t give a shit and was not paying attention.

And this is Firearms reform polocy !? To ban or prohibit guns out of society so dip-shit parents can neglect and not mind their children?

Don’t get me wrong I’m not a heartless and cruel bastard at all. But what does chap my ass is how this incident is pushed to “guns are bad” instead  of “Bad parents and or bad parenting” It seems to be that there needs to be “Parenting reform polocy” before there needs to be “Firearms reform polocy”. I wonder if these Gun Control freaks are smoking a little too much crack when thinking this crap up. Folks we are in a sad day in America when we can’t hold Parents accountable for their children and their actions. But yet make excuses.. My prayers and my heart felt condolenses are with this child. May God rest this 3 year old boys soul.
