Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s (D) Chicago witnessed a 139 percent increase in murder during July 2020 when compared to July 2019.
ABC7 reported there were 105 murders in July 2020, up from “the 44 reported in July 2019.”

Moreover, there were 406 “shooting incidents” in Chicago during the month of July 2020, an increase of 75 percent “from the 232 last July,” the Chicago Sun-Times reported.

Over a longer span of time, murders were up 51 percent from January 1, 2020, through July 31, 2020, compared to murders for the same period of time in 2019, according to the Sun-Times.

Lightfoot blamed Chicago mayhem and bloodshed on gun-friendly states during a July 26, 2020, appearance on CNN’s State of the Union.

According to The Hill, Lightfoot told CNN, “Our gun problem is related to the fact that we have too many illegal guns on our streets, 60 percent of which come from states outside of Illinois.”

She added, “We are being inundated with guns from states that have virtually no gun control, no background checks, no ban on assault weapons — that is hurting cities like Chicago.”

Lightfoot did not mention that the Chicago area already has an “assault weapons” ban via a Cook County ordinance. Nor did she mention background checks are a federal requirement, mandated for all retail gun sales in every state of the Union, whether that is Illinois, Indiana, Wisconsin, or California.

The mayor also failed to noted that her state, Illinois, requires everyone to obtain a Firearm Owners Identification (FOID) card before being allowed to possess a gun, and the process for obtaining that card includes a background check.

Yeah, all the homies and 'bangers from all backgrounds, they will get their carrying card right away! They'll get right on it, because Lori said so.

biggest secret in Chicago right now is the effective start to the FED program - major arrests of gang bangers all over the Chicago area involved in everything from porno to drug trafficking to murder ....

everybody is going into FED courts and bypassing the Cook County Kim "Jesse Smollet" Fox fiasco of a DA ...

You can’t be number 1 and stay number 1 unless you work really hard.

And no city works harder at being the murder capital than Chicago!

There has to some sort of cable awards show so this dork can get the true recognition she deserves.

So, I have a question for the Mayor and other proponents of this idiotic line of thinking...

Why don't Indiana, Wisconsin, Iowa, heck, the rest of downstate Illinois have these gun issues? You'd think with the situation in Chicongo as it is that the previously mentioned places would be like Mogadishu...

I'll even answer my own question. It's because they don't have gangs, drugs and poverty in the crushing amounts that Chicongo does.

Add in that the CHi-town demon-crats need the bangers to get out the vote and enforce for them, so they protect them every chance they get

Any thing the demon-crats touch becomes corrupted and rotten
