    Chicago Mayor Lightfoot Blames States With ‘Virtually No Gun Control’ For Violence in the City

    Chicago Mayor Lightfoot Blames States With ‘Virtually No Gun Control’ For Violence in the City

    How come other cities don’t have as bad a problem as Chicago?

    Listen to this article

    Ah, yes. Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot spewing the Democratic rhetoric on guns to deflect blame on others for the rising shooting and homicide numbers in the city.

    Lightfoot claimed Chicago is “being inundated with guns from states that have virtually no gun control, no background checks, no ban on assault weapons.”

    Her full quote: “The fact of the matter is, our gun problem is related to the fact that we have too many illegal guns on our street, 60 percent of which, 60 percent of which come from states outside of Illinois. We are being inundated with guns from states that have virtually no gun control, no background checks, no ban on assault weapons. That is hurting cities like Chicago.”

    She forgot this part: “More than two of every five traceable crime guns recovered in Chicago originate with their first point of sale at an Illinois dealer.”

    So people in these states with “virtually no gun control” buy guns for the specific reason to shoot-up Chicago?

    Mayor, the stats still show that 40% of those guns come from Illinois. You cannot brush that aside. Facts do not care about your feels or narrative.

    Can she name me ONE state that does not require background checks? The FBI has the National Instant Criminal Background Check System (NCIS):

    The NICS provides full service to the FFLs in 30 states, five U.S. territories, and the District of Columbia. The NICS provides partial service to seven states. The remaining 13 states perform their own checks through the NICS.

    You cannot buy a gun from a seller without a background check.

    Criminals will find a way to get a gun. They are criminals. They buy them illegally or steal them.

    Those pesky “assault weapons” sure are to blame!

    I am sick and tired of Chicago officials blaming everyone else for the city violence.

    People, please. Stop chasing the cape and making fun of how stupid and ugly it is, and what illogical blather is embroidered on it. Focus on the matador, and how exactly we go about killing him.

    Inanimate objects do not cause violence, people do.

    Guns don’t sin people do.

    “People, please. Stop chasing the cape…”

    You clearly don’t know me. And why should you?

    Mockery is the greatest revenge. I’m good at mockery. You have to be tough to be this much of an asshole.
