• Father Pfleger: NRA ‘Will Pay for Murder of Our Children’

    Rogue Catholic priest, Father Michael Pfleger, during a rally outside a gun store in the suburbs of Chicago on Saturday blamed the National Rifle Association and gun manufacturers for Chicago’s violence.

    “I’m just tired, tired of the NRA,” the previously suspended priest said at a rally outside Chuck’s Gun Shop & Range. “Tired of them prostituting themselves and buying politicians in this country.”

    “I’m tired of gun manufacturers and John Riggio from Chuck’s making money off the blood running down our streets, and our children laying in cemeteries,” he continued, “while they live in gated communities where there are no gun shops like Chuck’s. I’m tired of funerals of babies, while [the] N.RA, manufacturers, and Chuck’s, run to the bank making profits from death.”

    Pfleger, joined by Reverend Jesse Jackson, was participating in support of a national campaign, Stop Bad Apple Gun Dealers, launched by the Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence.

    He listed recent shootings in heavily gun-controlled Chicago.

    “Three were killed, ten were shot, just last night, in Chicago,” he said. “I’m not a gun grabber, I’m a life lover, and I love life more than the death that they are perpetrating.”

    The Catholic priest then threatened the wrath of God against the NRA, warning that the pro-gun group “will pay for the murder of our children.”

    “At the end of the day you can argue with us [and] you can call us names, but you got to deal with God,” he said. “And the blood of our children is on your hands — and you will pay for the murder of our children.”
