Have you ever heard of the saying that money is the root of all evil? Well, when it comes to gun violence and gun control, that saying may be truer than most realize.

The Indianapolis City Council is considering defining gun violence as a public health crisis and it’s not for the reason you may think.

Yes, it has to due somewhat with growing number of shootings in the city that’s home to the famous Brickyard race track, but the primary reason is money – your and my money. By defining gun violence as a public health crisis, the city becomes eligible for apply for federal funding to help fight the public health crisis.

(Fox 59) – The City- County Council will hear a proposal that would declare gun violence a public health crisis in the Circle City.

The proposal, authored by councilor La-keisha Jackson, comes on the heels of another violent weekend in Indianapolis where two people were killed, including Monica Pirtle, a 35-year-old mother of three.

“My sister couldn’t have been the target. She wasn’t involved in stuff like that,” Pirtle’s sister Markia Baker said.

Pirtle would have turned 36 on Tuesday. She leaves behind three daughters, ages 2, 15, and 18.

“The 2-year-old has to grow up without her mother, the 15-year-old has to continue life without her mother, and the 18-year-old now has to play mother to her sisters,” Baker said…

If the city is able to obtain federal funding, they say they will use it try to help educate younger people who seem to be the ones responsible for the largest part of the gun violence. Liberals believe educating those committing the gun violence will somehow stop it. That’s like trying to cure a serious illness with mere education, instead of addressing that cause, which for gun violence, is a sick and moral-less society.
