Chicago Mayor Blames GOP For City’s Violence


Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot blamed the GOP for gun violence in the windy city Monday night, telling Sen. Ted Cruz to “keep our name out of your mouth,” and posting a chart that claimed 60% of guns recovered in Chicago come from out of state.

Her tweets came after a West Texas shooting killed 7 people and wounded 22 others.

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot tweeted: “60% 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. Keep our name out of your mouth.”

“Lightfoot Logic” insures that the violence in Chicago will remain uninterrupted. 96% of Chicago’s victims are either Black or Hispanic, these communities continue to suffer while the Mayor of Chicago tries to take on Ted Cruz. She is in over her head.

Chicago; proof positive that when you outlaw guns only outlaws will have guns. Just imagine how fast the streets would be cleaned up if the law-abiding citizens were allowed to own and carry guns.
