Chicago Mayor Blames Republicans For City’s 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,” 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.

    AND much of our crime here in Iowa comes from Chicago… Lightfoot: “Keep your trash out of our state”!

    This seriously calls into question this man’s cognitive ability.
