Sorry, but that statement went totally over my head. You're not talking about the Saturday Night Special pistol. Right?

In a total knee-hits-jaw reaction to a U.S. Senator referring to Chicago's shooting record, the Mayor of Chicago apparently went nuts and simply blamed Republicans for allowing guns into Chicago's high crime areas !!

Yup, Mayor Lori Lightfoot "fired" back some Tweets at U.S. Senator Ted Cruz after he mixed the bad words "Chicago" + "Guns" !!

She (The Mayor) claims most guns (illegal guns) taken by Chicago Police are from out of state.

She made her point but failed to offer a valid "excuse" for all the gun violence in Chicago.

Chicago has not had a Republican Mayor since 1933.



Mayor Lori Lightfoot rips Sen. Ted Cruz, ‘coward Republicans’ on Twitter over gun control: ‘Keep our name out of your mouth’


Mayor Lori Lightfoot stepped into the national spotlight in a Twitter exchange with U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz, ripping him and “coward Republicans” for not passing new gun laws in response to nationwide violence and telling the Texas Republican to “keep our name out of your mouth” after he criticized Chicago’s firearm laws.

Late Monday, the mayor responded to a Cruz tweet that said, “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.”



The Chicago Jackass Shooting Index


"I want all illegal guns declared illegal nationwide damnit !!"




The standard response from the gun control crowd in Chicago is that the guns are brought in from out of state as if that is the cause of the violence. Basically, they claim thugs go to Indiana to buy weapons. This is only partly true.

Where this fails the logic test is that if the availability of firearms are what causes the violence, then why isn't Indiana a war zone just like Chicago?

Politicians like Lightfoot will do anything to avoid having the hard discussion about DEMOGRAPHICS of Chicago gun violence. Chicago doesn't have a gun violence problem... we have a young black male violence problem. This is the hard and uncomfortable truth.

The sad part is the police know who the "shooters" are... heck, you can go on youtube right now and find all kinds of videos of Chicago gang members basically "dry snitching" on themselves. You literally have videos put up of gang members and people speculating on their "stats" or how many bodies they can claim...

Don't believe me? Here is one.... the first guy in this video "051 Melly" just go smoked over the weekend at party. There is video of the shooting, but didn't link to that one. You can find it if you just search youtube (not graphic).

Demographics are a no no.

It's the only other factor when you compare crime to restrictive gun laws across state lines, even within democratic run areas.

Lets just not all talk about it, don't want to offend anyone or be "racists".

There have been 349 homicides in Chicago YTD according to heyjackass.com. 291 of victims are black. 41 hispanic. So almost 84% of murder victims are black. Through in the hispanic and you are covering 95% of murder victims.

Just 13 whites have been murdered in a city of nearly 3 million people.

Let that sink in...

Talking about gun violence without discussion demographics is a waste of time. The vast majority of these crimes occur in literally two areas of the city. The west side and south side.

Could someone please answer a question for me? The dems are always saying and acting as though they are so much smarter and intellectually above the rest of us, then why do they elect people that are dumb as frick?

Serious question.

Which I assume, even outside of chicago, it's a similar story in all major cities.

It's a "fixable" problem, but logic needs to come into play and the real issues have to be discussed, not just throwing blame around to kick the can down the road.

There is a serious societal/cultural factor at play here. It's glaringly obvious and anyone that choses to sidestep it is a huge part of the problem.

Joe Biden said yesterday that (as President) he will ban any gun which holds more than one bullet. How stupid is that?


Was he perhaps referring to his own brain.
Not firing on all cylinders and all that....

Obviously.

But if she just keeps stirring it long enough, while passing on the blame to someone else, she'll make a lot of money and gain political/social power.

So, either way her goal is met.

If you recall, mayor Rahm Emmanuel cited "lower moral standards" in certain demographics, as the root of Chicago gun violence.

He also said he was willing to work with the Trump Administration to reduce the violence. That really caused his Dim colleagues heads to explode.

Within 60 days, Rahm suddenly/unexpectedly announced he would not be seeking re-election.

He was right though, and not because those with "lower moral standards" have them by nature. There is a very systematic wide scale mechanism that is undermining the intelligence and prosperity of inner city black youths.

It absolutely drives me nuts watching it all play out.

Yup, the stats repeat in every major city. Gun violence is very much a poor urban black community problem. It is a cultural issue...

It obviously is, but we are now both racists for having pointed that out. We should do the right thing, and run for office while blaming others and pocketing fat checks while pretending to represent a community that we have no intention of helping. That would be the "right" thing to do.

You remember the terrorist attack in France 3 years ago? French police were not allowed to have guns. I vividly remember seeing one of the terrorists walk up to a policeman and kill him, point blank, then calmly walk to the get away vehicle.

Only someone with a death-wish would want to be on the Seattle police force.

If Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren beat President Trump, you'll be able to earn "fat paychecks" in a lot of ways, courtesy of out-of-control government-run golden geese.
