Leftist Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot – wait, that’s a woman? – was on Twitter Monday blaming Republicans for all the gun violence in her shithole city. Wow, this dude’s got some balls on him.
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.”
Hey man, we’re trying, but it’s difficult to do so when your garbage town sees forty murders in a single f**king weekend.
I’ll try to explain this slowly, in case Mayor Gary Coleman is reading. The reason 60% of guns come from out of state is because the thugs cross the border and buy them on the street. There is an enormous black market for guns in our Democratic cities, and most of those weapons have been previously stolen or are the result of straw purchases.
Do you think your crackheads are headed to Iowa to buy a gun legally from the conservative Republican owner of “Bloodbath & Beyond?” The answer is no, bro.
Let’s play Devil’s Advocate for a second, okay guy? Assume 60% of the firearms are coming in from outside states. Show me the causality between the import of guns and Republicans? Put more simply, so your feeble mind can understand, how many conservative Republicans has your department arrested for shootings and/or homicides? I’m going to go out on a limb, and say zero, because if even one MAGA hat-wearing white guy killed a Chicago citizen, it would be the lead story on every news network for six months.

Yes, there is violence in Chicago, but not by conservatives and not by legal gun owners. Protecting onto Republicans may help you sleep better at night, Mr. Mayor, but it also makes you look like a small, petty man.
By the way Mister Mayor, I loved you in “Unbreakable.”
