At Least 25 Shot in Chicago Over Last Weekend

It was another bloody and deadly gun violence weekend in Chicago.

Over the past weekend, at least 25 people were shot, fatally claiming the lives of seven.

The gun violence extended into the early hours of Monday morning, where two males in their twenties were shot and killed.

Just the previous week, “Breitbart News reported that 15 were shot, two fatally, on Tuesday, September 10, 2019, in Democrat-controlled Chicago.”

Labor Day holiday weekend was another bloody weekend on the streets of Chicago.

According to Breitbart, “At least 41 people were shot, seven fatally, over Labor Day Weekend 2019 in Democrat-controlled Chicago.”

Newly elected Democrat Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot experienced back to back violent holiday weekends since taking office earlier this year.

Chicago Sun-Times reports, “She’s already weathered two other bloody holiday weekends in the first few months on the job.”

Mayor Lightfoot was highly criticized by Senator Ted Cruz (R-TX) over the Labor Day holiday in a series of Tweets about Chicago’s flawed gun laws.

Mayor Lightfoot blamed Republicans for the increase in illegal firearms in Chicago and responded to Senator Cruz, saying, “Keep our name out of your mouth.”

Senator Cruz shot back telling Mayor Lightfoot her anger “is misplaced” and pointed out that big cities with high crime rates are run by Democrats.

Despite Chicago’s harsh gun control laws, Democrat-run cities like Chicago are plagued with bloody violence.
