"WAVE 3's Elizabeth Donatelli Investigates."

There's been talk and action about dry districts where alcohol isn't allowed, but now there is a movement for gun-dry districts. Community activists are working to get legislative support that would put restrictions on guns and selling them in high-crime areas of metro Louisville.

J.T. McAdams responds by email to an "authorized journalist" shilling for gun control under the guise of objective reporting:

This is what passes for investigative journalism these days? How hard could it have been to do just a little bit of research before you parrot such trash?

For instance:

You state "Since August 31st of this year, there have been 48 homicides in Jefferson County. In 33 of those cases, the murder weapon was a gun."

1. How many of those homicides were gang related?
2. How many of those guns were legally purchased?
3. How many of those guns were purchased in the proposed "gun dry"districts?
4. What evidence exists that shows restrictions on gun sales lowers crime?
5. MORE IMPORTANTLY, what evidence exists that shows more guns in the hands of law abiding citizens actually REDUCES crime? (Don't look now, but it's overwhelming and really easy to find if you want to.)
6. How many homicides(or any other crimes) have been prevented by law abiding citizens who were carrying firearms? (Please see #5 above)

You reference the D.C. ban that was overturned. Do you even have a clue as to what the crime rate in D.C. has been since the "de facto" ban went into effect? This information might help you in answering questions #4 & #5 above.

You state "Community groups in Chicago are pushing similar legislation." Chicago has one of the highest violent crime rates in the country and yet firearms have been outlawed for the law abiding in that city for years and years. This could also help with 4 & 5 above.

Another quote from you - "Local activists are also considering ways to restrict gun sales in certain high-crime areas such as 12th and Broadway, 18th and Broadway, and areas of Shelbyville instead of an all-out ban."

Who does Louis Coleman think he is? A lawmaker? Who do you think he is? Let me help you. He is Louisville's Jesse Jackson/Al Sharpton wanna be. He likes to shake people down for a living if they don't go along with his little schemes. He's a man desperate for relevance. And so called investigations like yours do nothing but give him credence.

By the way, have you ever heard of "preemption" when it comes to laws pertaining to firearms? No? Why doesn't that surprise me? But I'm real tired of doing your work for you so go look it up.

"WAVE 3's Elizabeth Donatelli investigates." Investigates? You didn't investigate anything. You simply gave airtime and press to shameful, lying,race-baiting thugs disguised as "community activists".

Thank you for contributing to the problem.
