This is absolutely tragic. Over 3,000 people have been gunned down in a violent attack and a major U.S. city is stunned. Authorities are on high alert.
“Data shows more than 3,800 were shot January 1, 2020, through December 1, 2020, in Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s (D) Chicago,” reported Breitbart News’ AWR Hawkins. based upon numbers from the Chicago Tribune.
“The Tribune data comes one day after Breitbart News reported 12 people were shot on Monday, November 30, 2020, alone,” continued Hawkins. “One of those shooting victims succumbed to his injuries.”
So, while Chicago’s mayor, Lori Lightfoot, violates her own COVID-19 guidance and hitches her wagon to cutting the police budget, her city continues to suffer. It appears that strict gun control laws aren’t the answer, either.
Ultimately, if you hamstring your city’s police and make it difficult for citizens to defend themselves, crime will only increase — and it is the innocent people who will suffer greatly. Lightfoot doesn’t seem to understand this reality.
It is no wonder that Americans are fleeing cities like Chicago, New York, and Los Angeles. Once the envy of the world, they are hotbeds for anti-business policies, high taxes and cost of living, and ever-increasing violence.
