Chicago Mayor Blames Republicans For Her City’s Rampant Violence

Chicago Mayor Blames Republicans For Her City’s Rampant Violence
Democratic Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot blamed Republicans for gun violence in her city Monday night, telling Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz to “keep our name out of your mouth."

Chicago’s newly-elected mayor survived her city’s violent Labor Day Weekend, but sadly eight of her citizens did not, as the gun violence in “gun controlled” Chicago ramped up over the holiday.

In addition to the eight deaths, there were over three dozen gun-related injuries as well.

However, none of this is her fault – nor is it the fault of the decades and decades of Democrat leadership that has reigned supreme in Chicago.

No.

It’s all Republican’s fault, apparently.

The mayor’s “blame game” started when she lashed out at Senator Ted Cruz, who correctly pointed out that Chicago has some of the strictest gun control laws in the country, but at the same time they have some of the worst gun violence in the country.

Lightfoot claims that 60 percent of the guns recovered in Chicago are from Republican-run states.

Chicago is a perfect example of why liberal gun control doesn’t work, and the main reason why Democrats never mention Chicago when they’re pretending to care about shootings.

Democratic Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot blamed Republicans for gun violence in her city Monday night, telling Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz to “keep our name out of your mouth,” and posting a chart that claimed 60% of guns recovered in Chicago come from out of state.

Lightfoot’s tweets came after a West Texas shooting Saturday killed 7 people and wounded 22 others.

“60% of illegal firearms recovered in Chicago come from outside IL—mostly from states dominated by coward Republicans like you who refuse to enact commonsense gun legislation,” Lightfoot said. “Keep our name out of your mouth.”

Lightfoot’s comments came after Cruz pointed out that Illinois’ strict gun control legislation has not prevented carnage in Chicago, which is one of the most violent cities in the country.

Chicago has not had a Republican mayor since the early 1930s.

In the wake of Texas’ second mass shooting in the last month, liberal politicians across the country have renewed their calls for gun control, with former Texas Democratic Rep. Beto O’Rourke promoting a mandatory gun buyback program and selling t-shirts that say America’s gun laws are “f-cked up.”

Twitter users wasted no time responding to Mayor Lightfoot’s unhinged tweet.
