Insane: You Won’t Believe How Much Homicide Has Increased In Lori Lightfoot’s Chicago

(Tea Party 247) – Chicago has long been known for its raging gun violence despite having some of the strictest gun control policies in the nation.

Before Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D), the black, female, lesbian intersectional golden child of a mayor took office, the Windy City was often pointed to by those who oppose both gun violence and gun control as an example of how these policies hurt, rather than help, the communities they aim to protect.

While law-abiding citizens remain seriously restricted in their capacity to obtain and carry firearms, criminals, and gangsters who have no problem obtaining firearms on the black market regularly shoot up their criminal rivals and sadly, many innocents are often caught in the crossfire.

Stunningly, since Lightfoot has entered office, this notable epicenter of gun violence has only gotten worse.

Homicide has increased by 139% in July of 2020 as compared to July of 2019.

According to ABC7, Breitbart News reports, there were 105 murders in July 2020, an increase 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.

Naturally, Lightfoot blames the violence in her own city on other states.

On July 26, during an appearance on CNN’s State of the Union, Lightfoot said, “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.”

Breitbart notes:

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.

  1. PEOPLE OF AMERICA YOU ALL BETTER WAKE UP FROM YOUR LA LA LAND…THE DEMOCRAPS JUST WANT TO CONTINUE TO TRY AND CONTROL US….BE SMART, THINK FOR YOURSELF, EDUCATE YOUR SELF YOUR FUTURE AND THE FUTURE OF YOUR CHILDREN, GRANDCHILDREN’S WAY OF LIFE DEPEND UPON IT…TRUMP LOVES THIS COUNTRY HE DOESN’T WANT IT DESTROYED
    WE USED TO STICK TOGETHER, WE MOST OF ALL PRAYED TOGETHER NO MATTER WHO YOU BELIEVE IN…THEY TOOK “GOD” OUT OF OUR COUNTRY ONCE YOU LOSE THAT YOU LOSE IT ALL..THIS IS AMERICA “GOD BLESS AMERICA…

  2. She is your typical dumb Ass democrap. Blames others for her incompetence, inability to stop riots
    and disorder. And possibility supports blm (Burn,Loot,Murder).

  3. Amidst all the gun violence, I look for mayor Lezzbo McBulldyyke to have the nation’s largest LGBTQRSTUVWXYZ parade next year. it will most likely be the only thing she can do, and will count it as her major accomplishment in office……

  4. I guarantee that within only six months former mayor of Detroit Kwame Kilpatrick still in prison for corruption will be immediately released by Biden if this anti semitic anti Israel Biden who openly has stated that he plans to give Muslims a voice in thanks for saying nothing to democrat pro PLO,Hamas and Hezbollah supporters such as Omar. Tliab, and Cortez among other supporters of Louis Farrakhan working hard to defeat Trump. I am certain that China, Russia, Iran, and N Korea are doing all they can to see Trump defeated and our country split by race, religion and color. A vote for Biden is a vote to encourage an attack on Israel that will soon be followed by numerous attacks on America that added up will not be dissimilar to 9-11.

  5. DOUG LITCHFIELD: IT IS ABSOLUTELY IMPOSSIBLE TO CREATE TAMPER FREE BALLOTS! OF COURSE, SOME WILL CLAIM IT TO BE TRUE, BUT PAST RESULTS PROVE IT IS POSITIVELY IMPOSSIBLE. OBAMA HAS SAID, “NO ONE SHOULD HAVE TO COMPROMISE THEIR HEALTH JUST TO VOTE,” WHICH SOUNDS AS IF HE ALMOST CARES. THE TRUTH IS THE LEFT KNOWS THE ONLY WAY THEY COULD WIN IS BY MAIL IN VOTING, BECAUSE IT CAN INDEED BE SO EASILY MANIPULATED.

  6. Providing aid and comfort to violent terrorists trying to overthrow the US government is a federal felony. Think it’s called sedition and treason?

  7. The majority of the guns in this area are not legal ones but the administration wants to control the legal ones. How stupid is this?

  8. “Naturally, Lightfoot blames the violence in her own city on other states” This is a lie from the pit of hell. Lightfoot cannot accept her inability to stop the violence in her own city, so she blames other states. Lightfoot is a coward to blame others. She is just like the rest of the others MAYORS, prior to her, “A FAILURE”. The people of Chicago are tired of having to going thru the same old thing, year after year, day after day. Hey Lightfoot, I am beginning to think that BIGFOOT has a better BRAIN than you. Get off your rest assurance and start making yourself useful in CHICAGO. Are you being paid by Chicago???? Make a name for yourself. What can you do for Chicago?

  9. GUNS don’t kill people, PEOPLE kill people! As long as Libtards (Libturds?) are in charge, otherwise law-abiding citizens will on occasion have to take the law into their own hands in their own self-defense! Then again, the political objective of the Marxist “Democrat” ruling class is a(n) unarmed/disarmed citizenry! If the people have no means of defense, they are much easier to control! The only thing standing in their way is a little something called the Second Amendment! Thank God that the Founders had the vision and foresight to provide the people with the liberty to defend themselves against a despotic and tyrannical government!

  10. Chicago has always been a cesspool of humanity. They vote in the most corrupt and criminal of politicians. Why? I can’t answer as I know many good people living in Chicago. They work hard and try living the good life. But the elected officials bow to the radical destructive mobs and tragedies happen frequently. The voting records must be corrected. The good people’s votes must be counted. No more the mantra of Illinois “vote early and vote often. The good people must get good politicians elected.

  11. Her responses are a prime example of the lefts victim culture inspire by Obama. Blame others for your failings and the Demand they change. Its an inherent problem on the left whom seem to believe that personal responsibility doesnt exist. BLM has a tight grip on this philosophy and is beating us down with it. Ti.e for tolerance is over. Hopl these poeple accountable for the positions they have taken responsibility for. If they cant perform in an educated mature fashion, get them out and find someone else who will.

    • Why does NYC keep electing crooks to public office??Democrats have perfected corrupting everything they touch since the 1830’s.

  12. Now I just wonder why no one seems to mention that crime has spiked significantly during the pandemic in every place in the USA, when the fact is Republican controlled Florida has more crime and gun violence than NEW YORK but has a lot less persons. Just picking on a democrat run city is no way to slow down or reduce crime in any way, now crime increased greatly when they took the foot patrol off the street who knew everyone in his beat and knew who the actual troublemakers were, so that cut down on crime, there is no way to eliminate crime entirely, because there will always be those that know they will not get caught, and that is not of any political party in any way.

    • So what your saying is we need more police and not to defund the police like all the Democrat Mayors of Seattle, Portland, New York, Chicago Minneapolis are demanding.

  13. The woman is a total moron. The fact of the matter is gun violence has spiraled out of control in a supposedly gun free zone. Her neueons aren’t firing correctly. What’s going on in surrounding states has absolutely no bearing on the ”gun free” zone, gun control or no gun control in other states. Guns will ALWAYS be available on the black market. Can’t this demented moron recognize that? The truth of.the matter is that this woman is a racist. She condones violence as her way manifesting her hatred of White society.
