Chicago Mayor Blames “Gun Violence” On States With Fewer Restrictions

There’s no such thing as gun violence. Guns are inanimate objects which require a human to discharge them. Funny that this seems to happen primarily in areas run by Democrats

Chicago Mayor Blames Other States With ‘No Gun Control’ for City’s Increasing Violence

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot has blamed her city’s worsening gun violence crisis on neighboring states with less regulation on guns, calling on President Donald Trump for support through firearms legislation and community investment—not the deployment of federal forces.

In an interview with CNN’s State of the Union Sunday morning, Lightfoot called the president’s offer to “solve” Chicago’s soaring murder rate by sending in 50,000 to 75,000 federal personnel to the city “classic Trump hyperbole.” She argued the issue lies with an influx of firearms from outside of Illinois, where she said 60 percent of the city’s guns originate.

“We are being inundated with guns from states that have virtually no gun control, no background checks, no ban on assault weapons,” Lightfoot said.

“That is hurting cities like Chicago,” she added. “That is the thing that if the president wanted to help and the other things I identified in my letter he could do today, tomorrow but he is not really interested in helping in that way.”

Um, every state has background checks. They’re required federally. Perhaps Lightfoot could tell us which states, specifically, that she’s talking about. Obviously, the non-journalists at CNN failed to ask her that basic question, a “prove it” question. I wouldn’t be surprised if she was correct, though, however, most of those guns are not ones purchased legally, but stolen.

With Chicago on track to have its deadliest year in two decades, the United States’ third-largest city has made headlines for rampant shootings that have already killed more than 400 people. Trump’s response has been to institute a “surge” of federal law enforcement officers from Department of Justice agencies such as the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF), the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) and the U.S. Marshals Service, as well as forces from the Department of Homeland Security.

One has to wonder: why aren’t the criminals in Chicago following all the super-restrictive gun laws of the city of Chicago and State of Illinois? The only ones who seem to be following the law are the normal non-criminal folks, who are left unarmed against the violence in Chicago.

Of course, the vast majority of the “gun violence” is in black neighborhoods, and the majority shot, and the majority killed, are blacks, and even a black Democratic mayor doesn’t really seem to care, but, that’s par for the course with Democrats.

    It never ceases to amaze me how Democrats create situations like high murder rates and then blame everybody else. Like all these Democrat controlled cities rioting and burning and destroying people’s livelihoods and their mayors blame Trump. Or Blue cities and states literally closing down their small businesses and forcing people not to work and once again blaming Trump. Or Fredo Cuomo allowing foreigners into New York during a pandemic, calling Trump a xenophobe for stopping flights from China, and FORCING the elderly into Wuhan Flu incubators called retirement homes where they died at an astounding rate and of course blaming Trump.

    Chicago is EXACTLY what 70 years of corrupt, anti black and anti American Democrat rule created. Nothing more and nothing less. If they’re still stupid enough to vote Democrat then they all deserve to be shot. We can no longer tolerate Democommie excuses for crime, illiteracy, anti American teaching and anti white racism. All lives matter and if you don’t like that then you need to be exiled to Somalia.

    BTW, America is and always was a white country so stop bitchin about the patriarchy and white privilege. That’s like living in Japan and hating the fact there are too many Japs. Move! Nobody is forced to live here (unlike the commie countries you all seem to love so much). Even those commie countries would not let assholes like you in.

    Trump 2020 It’s time to be FOR America or get the fuk out!

    Then why don’t those other states have the problems that Chicago has?
    The problem is with the people of Chicago.

    • Kye says:

      First of all ruralcouncel, Chicago is a city not a state so whatever problems “those other states” have are no relation to the decades of Democrat malfeasance, corruption and criminal neglect experienced by Chicago and 20 other Democrat controlled shitholes. Almost every city currently under attack by domestic enemies are Democrat controlled for decades.

      Trump 2020 Stop the burning of America.
