Chicago in September was a death zone for residents with the tragic death of a child on her bike, a woman shopping at a local convience store, and young people attending a party, yet Democrats say that the State is leading the country for gun control laws, as they place the blame for people’s deaath on “outsiders”.
Oddly, according to far-left radical Gabby Giffords,’ the wife of Arizona Senate candidate, Democrat-dominated Illinois get an “A-” for gun safety laws, saying, “despite earning an A- for its gun laws, Illinois has a higher gun death rate than many states with similar laws because of guns trafficked in from nearby states. Nearly half the guns used in crimes in Illinois—and nearly 60% of the guns used in crimes in Chicago—are trafficked from states with weaker gun laws. The majority of these guns come from neighboring Indiana, which received a D- on the Scorecard for lacking many of the important gun safety protections Illinois has passed. Southern states with F grades, like Missouri, Kentucky, and Mississippi, also traffic hundreds of crime guns into Illinois each year.”
Oh, well that is logical, it is because of “other people” who are not from Illinois. That was pretty easy, so the State is still on the “good list” for Giffords and Kelly.
But it doesn’t help save any lives. September is now historicially deadly in Chicago.
Accroding to local news, WTTW:
“Last month, Chicago recorded its deadliest September in more than 25 years as the city approaches 600 homicides in 2020 with a quarter of the year still left to go.
The Chicago Police Department on Thursday reported there were 81 homicides last month — the most for any September since 1993 when there were 84 — as well as 309 shooting incidents and 400 victims.
The department said overall crime is down 7% year-to-date in 2020 compared to last year, but thus far the number of homicides (50% increase) and shootings (51% increase) remain well above 2019 figures.
“This has been an unprecedented year in policing, as a global pandemic and civil unrest have converged to present law enforcement with a crisis on multiple fronts,” Police Superintendent David Brown said in a statement. “And yet, our officers remain committed to improving public safety despite these challenges.”
Through the first nine months of 2020, Chicago has reported 2,470 shootings — which have left 3,110 victims — and 588 homicides. The city already surpassed 2019’s homicide total by the end of August.
The number of September 2020 shooting incidents and shooting victims are also up 48% and 60%, respectively, over September 2019 totals.
Among the homicides recorded in September were: the shooting death of 8-year-old Dajore Wilson as she rode in a vehicle with her family; the stabbing death of Walgreens employee Olga Maria Calderon inside her Wicker Park store; and a shooting at a party on the West Side that left two dead.”
Democrats believe that the agenda for “gun control” like many of their other fantasies about how to dominate and control Americans, will lead to a “peaceful Utopia” where if everyone did what they were told to do, would create harmony among citizens.
Former Congresswoman, Gabby Giffords is a leading Democrat superstar for her gun control advocacy, a popular spokesperson and Community Organizer, Giffords is a well-funded lobbyist for more and more invasive measures by elite leaders to control Americans.
But does it work?
No. And that does not matter to the Democrats.
Giffords is endorsing Democrat Joe Biden for President and her husband is running for Senate, both on a platform of turning America into Gabby’s dream for dominance and control like she has in Illinois.
She has other “white knights” who want to protect her dreams of a gun free utopia:
And she and her husband have plans for Arizona.
And mayor of Chicago, Lori Lightfoot has conviently been given an excuse to not stop the violence, she blamed “outsiders”:
Lightfoot on Thursday said “nobody’s happy with the September numbers” and called on the federal government to increase gun control measures to stop the flow of illegal firearms into Chicago.
“We are gonna continue the fight, we’re gonna continue to do everything that we can to work to make Chicago and every neighborhood as safe as possible,” she said. “But we need to deal with the reality of gun violence. We’ve got to take the gun supply out of the hands of children, out of the hands of teenagers and adults. We’ve got to stop the flow.”
So just imagine Gabby Giffords’ utopia. It’s easy if you try…
