During just the month of July, there were 461 shootings in Chicago, which is being run by Democrat Mayor Lori Lightfoot.
A total of 614 people were shot, compared to 561 last year when COVID restrictions on store and restaurant capacity and mask mandates were still in place. While there were two fewer homicides than last year, homicides were up 139% over 2019.
50 people were shot last weekend in Chicago, with four fatalities. The previous weekend, 70 people were shot with 12 fatalities.
Obviously, Chicago has serious problems with shootings, and no matter how many Second Amendment restrictions its Democrat leaders put in place, they can’t make any headway on the problem.
Maybe they need to think about a different solution to this problem.
