Chicago mayor blames “cowardly Republicans” for city’s shootings


The gun violence lobby refuses to talk about the ongoing “gun violence” and mass killings that are occurring daily in the Democratic-controlled city of Chicago, Illinois.

The shootings have reached epidemic proportions, with 35 shot and 7 killed just this past Labor Day weekend alone.

The city’s newly-elected mayor, Lori Lightfoot, refuses to accept her city’s illicit gun possession problem that is leading to all the shootings.

Lightfoot is instead blaming “cowardly Republicans” for the rise in gun violence in her city, and not the actual individuals doing the shooting. The overwhelming majority of those doing the shooting in Chicago are young black males from the city’s minority neighborhoods.

“60 percent of illegal firearms recovered in Chicago come from outside IL—mostly from states dominated by coward Republicans like you who refuse to enact commonsense gun legislation,” Lightfoot tweeted.

Lightfoot also tweeted an image of what she says are the top 10 source states of recovered guns or firearms.

The image doesn’t cite a source but does show that over 40% of the guns recovered in Chicago come from Illinois, and 21% coming from Indiana.

Blaming Indiana has become somewhat of the norm for Democrats turning a blind eye to the Chicago’s gun problem instead of admitting the existence of the problem.

Lightfoot’s tweet was in direct response to Texas Sen. Ted Cruz’s tweet where he stated that “gun control doesn’t work” and that “disarming law-abiding citizens isn’t the answer.”

Chicago has become the murder capital of the nation and now 2020 Democrats are vowing to confiscate “assault weapons” if elected president.
