True story....

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot clashed with Sen. Ted Cruz over the latest burst of gun violence in the city, claiming Monday that Chicago’s decades-long crime problem is actually the fault of Republican-run states like Indiana – because they don’t have “commonsense gun legislation” in place.

The retort came after Cruz, R-Texas, tweeted that “gun control doesn’t work” and pointed to the Democrat-run city as evidence that “disarming law-abiding citizens isn’t the answer.” His tweet referenced an article reporting that at least 25 people were shot in Chicago during Labor Day weekend amid a continuing crime wave in the city.


She is actually blaming her city's violence on Republicans. That is along the same lines as blaming the last two years record breaking cold snaps on global warming. These fools have reached a level now where they don't even know what their brain (what is left of it) is telling them to say.

Isn't it stunning how there can be a shooting in Odessa Tx that takes 7 people's lives and they think we must take guns away, yet in Chicago, where they have the most strict gun laws in this country yet 20 people can die over the Labor Day holiday and not a word is spoken by these hypocrites....other than to try and blame others for their failed leadership.

Again, you put a Democrat in charge of anything, they will screw it up before you can say "lickidy split."

I think it was something like 32-36 shootings and 8 or so deaths. But point made.
Yes, no matter what the laws are - those that have bad intent will break the laws. Went to a meeting last evening where our county sheriff was the speaker. He encourage anyone eligible to get a carry permit - and carry. He is often humored when he makes a traffic stop and is presented a CCW permit along with the license and registration - when he asks where the weapon is, and told it is "at home" - just shakes his head.
He also pointed out if guns are outlawed then - like a recent incident in Japan - the knives will come out. I guess 7 were killed on a subway with a steak knife. Yep, need to outlaw steak knives!
Cheers, Pete

And you know this as well as anyone Pete, even if they did outlaw guns, what about the billions of them on the streets and in the hands of evil people. This is never about gun control. This is a about emotion, not knowing what to do (combined with emotion), throwing some random crap out there, power over the voting public and control over the voting public.

Btw...if you are concealed carry and you do carry and are pulled over, present all three with your hands then at 10/4 (lights on in the car if at night) and tell them exactly where the weapon is on your body.
