“Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) said rising gun violence in Chicago is occurring because the Windy City is “being inundated with guns” from outside states.”
Guns do not kill people people kill people. Why are these other states not having the murders Chicago has if they have plenty of firearms?
What the Mayor fails to understand is lack of citizen responsibility in reporting crime and testifying, creates opportunity for more crimes. The lack of respect for laws makes an environment unfit to have children. The history of Chicago tolerated criminal gangs for decades because the gangs paid off the political leaders. What about the loss of life in Chicago due to drugs? Other states make drugs illegal also, but plenty get to Chicago.
What about the culture of the south side of Chicago? Why is there less crime in other parts of the city? They have firearms also.
