Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) took aim at GOP Sen. Ted Cruz (Texas) after the lawmaker said a weekend uptick in violence in the city proved that gun control doesnt work.
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, Lightfoot tweeted late Monday. Keep our name out of your mouth.
Gun control doesnt work. Look at Chicago. Disarming law-abiding citizens isnt the answer. Stopping violent criminalsprosecuting & getting them off the streetBEFORE they commit more violent crimes is the most effective way to reduce murder rates. Lets protect our citizens.
She’s a Democrat
She’s a crook
You can see from the chart that 65.4% come from Illinois and its two neighbors, Wisconsin and Indiana.
You want to enrage a Conservative, tell them a Lie.
You want to enrage a Leftist, tell them the truth.
Keep our name out of your mouth? Well, thats a mature and responsible statement. Chicagos governance can not get any worse than it is now. I pity its citizens.
The graphic chart lacks two key things. Were the weapons stolen to start with, and just how many were picked up by the cops. If we are only talking about 42 guns over the whole year, this chart is worthless.
Which goes to show that when criminals are willing to commit crimes in an area free of prosecution of such they will subvert the law to do so because..........well they are criminals.
Urban America is not fit for decent people.
“60% of illegal firearms recovered in Chicago come from outside IL”
Interesting how those states, despite having lax laws and high availability, don’t have the same problems.
Lori Lightfoot has the unique ability, who when seated, is able to look at people to her immediate right and left while all the time starring ahead.
The truth hurts this wee-otch.
Good for Ted, for calling out the Chicago way of gun ‘control’.
Doesn’t matter were the guns come from you moron. It could be China or Mexico. But it is you citizen bringing them in and using them on your other citizens. Deal with it!
Unwitting confirmation that Sen. Cruz is right that gun control laws don't work.
Where is the porky Asian lady that was appointed to handle this gun violence situation?
You can take the Rat out of the Hood...
But you can't take the Hood out of the Rat.
Almost every illegal shooting is the culmination of a series of mistakes over a lifetime. The fact that the shooter obtained a gun, perhaps illegally, at the very end of that chain does not make it the most important failure.
The problem is the person who wants to kill. We are producing people who want to kill in huge numbers. This is the problem we need to address.
This particular example of “Hood Speech” was very popular last year amongst the young on Social Media. It was last year’s trendy catchphrase, which is why idiot politicians are using it today.
We dont need to get the guns off the street; we need to get the BUMS off the street.
But locally we were constantly getting big arrests for drug dealers from...... Harvey Il.
