The Chicago Sun-Times reported nearly 60 shot with three fatalities.WATCH: Chicago Mayor On Federal Troops: ‘We Can’t Just Allow Anyone To Come Into Chicago, Play Police In Our Streets’
“…if they cross that line, we will not hesitate to use every tool at our disposal to stop troops and unwanted agents in our city.
Close to 400 people have been shot to death in Chicago this year. The majority of the victims of homicide in Chicago are young, black men. Black lives don’t matter when it’s not politically expedient for the Democrats – even a Black Mayor.
Far more deaths than COVID this weekend and yet the city/state continues its lockdown and shitdow of humanity while ignoring, scoffing even, at the murder rate.
Appearing on CNN’s “State of the Union” Sunday morning, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot ripped the idea of using federal troops to help stabilize her city, stating, “We can’t just allow anyone to come into Chicago, play police in our streets, in our neighborhoods, when they don’t know the first thing about our city.”
Report: 59 Shot, 3 Killed, over Weekend in Mayor Lightfoot’s Chicago
Fifty-nine people were shot, three fatally, over the weekend in Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s (D) Chicago.
By: Breitbart, July 27, 2020:
NBC 5 noted that weekend shootings began Friday with a non-fatal incident just after 5 pm, when two individuals were shot while standing in a gas station parking lot “in the 800 block of West 59th Street.”
Less than 30 minutes later a 19-year-old was shot and left in serious condition while sitting on a porch on West Cullerton. The violence continued from there.
The Sun-Times reports the weekend’s last shooting–a fatal one–occurred just before 1:30 a.m. Monday morning.
On Tuesday, Mayor Lightfoot acknowledged President Trump would be sending in federal agents to help curtail the gun violence that has surged in Chicago throughout this year. But the Chicago Tribune reported Lightfoot made clear she will be ready to use the courts to stop the use of federal agents if she believes the Trump administration overreaches.
Lightfoot said, “I don’t put anything past this administration, which is why we will continue to be diligent and why we will continue to be ready. If we need to stop them and use the courts to do so, we are ready to do that.”
When Trump spoke out against the violence ravaging Democrat-controlled cities in June, Lightfoot reacted by stating she does not “need leadership lessons” from the president.
On July 16, 2020, Breitbart News reported Lightfoot responded to Trump’s idea of the federal government stepping in by calling for more gun control. Two of the central controls she demanded were universal background checks and an “assault weapons” ban. She did not mention the Chicago-area already has an “assault weapons” ban, thanks to a Cook County prohibition.
Moreover, Chicago and the entire state of Illinois already have a licensing process for would-be gun owners that includes a background check.
