It’s another typical weekend in Chicago, where through half of the holiday weekend 7 were killed and 25 were shot in gun and Democrat-controlled Chicago. Actually crime in Chicago isn’t as bad as some people make it out to be.
That’s just a vicious rumor that was started by 2 million victims.
It’s really funny that 2020 candidates for the Democratic nomination for president are constantly harping on gun violence but not one of them ever bring up Chicago. Are they not worried about gang violence even when the majority of victims are Black?
On Tuesday these numbers will be updated and it will be interesting to see how many are shot.
At least 25 people were shot, seven fatally, during the first half of Labor Day Weekend in Democrat-controlled Chicago.
