Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot actually believes Chicago has “common-sense gun policies” and blames the surrounding Republican-controlled States for her problems.
Isn’t it always someone else’s fault?
On Monday, Sen. Ted Cruz spoke out regarding the killings in Chicago over the Labor Day weekend. He tweeted: “Gun control doesn’t work. Look at Chicago. Disarming law-abiding citizens isn’t the answer. Stopping violent criminals—prosecuting & getting them off the street—BEFORE they commit more violent crimes is the most effective way to reduce murder rates. Let’s protect our citizens.”

Freshman Mayor Lightfoot who vowed to clean up the streets of Chicago didn’t like Cruz speaking out against the weekend’s violence and tweeted the following: “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.”

This, coming from the woman who said she was going to solve the crime in Chicago. Where, in reality, crime has actually increased in Chicago since she took office. She has not solved the crime, in fact, she made it worse.
It is not a gun problem – it is a crime problem. Gun ownership or even possession does not mean that you must, need to, have to, or want to shoot people. The legal gun ownership and acquisition laws in Chicago highlight the sad fact is that Chicago would have a terrible crime problem no matter the gun laws or whether or not guns even existed.
Typical liberal response when it comes to gun control, just blame someone else instead of addressing the root of the problem, have to agree 100% with Ted Cruz on this one.
Did anyone else notice she just admitted in her tweet that gun laws don’t work? Thank you, Mayor Lightfoot, for proving Cruz’s point.
You pointing out that guns in Chicago come from out of state only reinforces the notion that criminals don’t obey gun laws and that more gun laws won’t make a difference!
Dear Mayor, how about you maybe do something tomini stop the violence among your citizens and people wouldn’t criticize your city? Oh wait, you don’t want people to pay attention to your MURDER RATE.
