Over 20 people were just shot in the streets. A major U.S. city is in shock and millions are calling for justice. It can’t go on like this anymore.
“Nearly 20 people were shot, one fatally, Good Friday into Easter morning in Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s (D) Chicago,” according to Breitbart News in another tragic story out of the Windy City.
Additionally, it has been reported by the Chicago Tribune that “703 people were shot in January 1, 2021, through March 31, 2021, in Chicago. That is 184 more people than were shot during the same time-frame in 2020.”
Here’s the truth: 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. This cannot be argued against.
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.
