The marches "against gun violence" have as much effect on violent crime as do the "gun-free zone" stickers placed on Catholic churches in Chicago. However, these marches have been politicized and have practically morphed into protests against the [Constitutional] right for self-defense, which is also the agenda of every totalitarian regime. Having card. Cupich take part in that march on a Good Friday, of all days, was meaningless to non-believers but offensive and disturbing to Catholics.
