Just a few weeks ago Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot actually blamed Republicans for gun violence in her city. She claimed that the guns being used in Chicago (the city with the strictest gun control in the country) are actually coming from Republican states.
Now her city has just seen another murderous weekend. 25 shot and 7 killed.
At least 25 people were shot, seven fatally, over the weekend in Democrat-controlled Chicago.
The Chicago Sun-Times reports that seven people were shot and killed between Friday evening around 7:35 pm and Saturday afternoon just before 2:30 pm. The deceased included people who were driving at the time they were shot, who were sitting in parked cars, who were walking down streets or standing on sidewalks.
The deadly weekend was immediately followed by Monday morning fatalities. A 23-year-old man was shot and killed just after 1 am while “standing on the street.” And a 29-year-old man was shot and killed while “northbound in a vehicle at 3:53 a.m. in the 4000 block of North Narragansett Avenue.”
