(NationalSentinel) Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) has picked a fight with Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) over the issue of gun control, but she’s been bested by former NRA spokeswoman and talk show hostess Dana Loesch, who used facts — and Chicago officials — to refute the mayor.
The feud comes as Chicago suffered another heavy casualty weekend of shootings, with more than 25 people shot and seven killed — the near-daily equivalent of a mass shooting.
“Gun control doesn’t work. Look at Chicago. Disarming law-abiding citizens isn’t the answer. Stopping violent criminals—prosecuting & getting them off the street—BEFORE they commit more violent crimes is the most effective way to reduce murder rates. Let’s protect our citizens,” Cruz tweeted on Labor Day.
