Another failed Chicago mayor blames Republicans for gun violence: Dana Loesch blasts her with truth bombs

By Jon Dougherty

(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.

That drew the ire Lightfoot, who tried to blame her city’s historic gun murder rate on…Republicans.

“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. Keep our name out of your mouth,” she wrote.

She then went onto blame Cruz and Republicans for dismissing “common sense gun policies” — which, apparently, aren’t working in her city with strict gun control laws.

Loesch wasn’t having any of it. She counterattacked with local reporting in Chicago to refute Lightfoot’s “facts.” In fact, Loesch noted the biggest flaw in Lightfoot’s argument: It does not matter where guns come from if they wind up in the hands of people who, by law, aren’t supposed to have them.

“And the superintendent of your PD said that it’s “1400 repeat offenders driving this gun violence” https://wgntv.com/2017/06/23/rauner-signs-repeat-gun-offender-bill-with-cpd-supt-johnson-at-his-side/  and that your courts keep cycling them through. Instead of fighting with a Texas senator, what are you going to do about what is driving your crime rate?” she tweeted.

Those repeat offenders are already prohibited possessors — meaning it doesn’t matter where or which black market they obtain their weapons from, it’s all still illegal, @LightfootForChi. So what “common sense” legislation will improve your justice system, Mayor?” she added.

Loesch’s facts and rebuttal are spot-on, but until voters in Chicago tire of electing Democrats who all bring the same tired, failed, gun-and-justice-system policies into office with them, nothing is going to change.

Portions of Chicago will continue to be a third-world shooting gallery. Blood will continue to be spilled. Innocent lives will still be lost. And city Democrats will continue to blame others for their failure.

Decades ago I used to be proud to say I was from Illinois. Now I am ashamed and embarrassed. We are looking for that perfect house in Missouri and escape this terminally doomed cesspool called Illinois. Leave if you can. It is only going to get worse in the Land of Lincoln.
Wouldn’t Abe be proud. NOT !

A typical, childish response from a leftist politician. It’s always someone else’s fault.
