Chicago, ran by Democrats and infested with crime, has only seen an increase in looting and violence over the past several weeks. However, instead of accepting calls for federal HOPE response, Mayor Lori Lightfoot declared that they do not need federal help, and began to push for more gun control.
She obviously does not understand that criminals do not care about gun control. Criminals break the law, so what makes her think that taking guns from the good people will keep them from the hands of the bad people? All it does is leave good people defenseless.
On Sunday afternoon, rioters and looters filled the downtown streets of Chicago following the shooting of a 20-year-old by police.
Chicago Police Superintendent David Brown described the 20-year-old as an armed male who allegedly pointed a gun at officers and “shot at officers first.”
Police returned fire and wounded the suspect, and he was hospitalized thereafter.
Brown indicated that calls for looting in downtown Chicago were issued via social media in reaction to the shooting, and he sent 400 officers into downtown. But Breitbart News reported looting and violence still took place, and this included gunfire and violence against police.
WGN-TV anchorman Dan Ponce tweeted the following video showing the destruction that happened overnight:

When a reporter asked Lightfoot about Illinois House Republican Jim Durkin’s pleas for National Guard, she simply said she does not want "federal troops" but rather more gun control.
House Republican Leader Jim Durkin says, “Illinois government has failed to protect its residents and businesses. It is time to bring in the National Guard and accept any and all federal assistance to stop the chaos that is destroying our state.”

She claims they need “common sense gun control,” adding, “We cannot continue to have circumstances where anybody and their brother can go across the border, or into other parts of Illinois, and bring illegal guns into the city of Chicago.”
Here is the message Lightfoot had for Chicagoans on Twitter:
What we experienced this morning is not who we are.
We cannot let the actions of some destroy the fabric of our city and who we are as proud Chicagoans. pic.twitter.com/zK0acm1M1B

You'll Never Believe Which Hollywood Star Was Almost Lured Into Pedophile Island
In the coming weeks and months, I believe that we are going to learn a lot more about Jeffrey Epstein, Ghislaine Maxwell, and everyone else involved than we'd really like to know.
It's hard to believe that this sort of thing - that is sex trafficking - is going on in the world and not only that, but how massive it is.
Teachers Concerned That Parents Might Overhear Them Brainwashing Kids About This
Now that school is starting back up, many parents have opted to keep their kids home and either homeschooling their kids or public schooling them from home.
Now, keep in mind that this public school at home is not the same as homeschooling. Even a lot of the new homeschoolers aren't homeschooling, it's more of "pandemic schooling".
NFL Is Making Another Big Change to the National Anthem and the American Flag
If you keep up with my writings, then you already know that I'm done with professional sports.
I'm not going to support bending a knee to a group of terrorists who are destroying our country. Until they change their stance on politics being brought into sports and stop catering to liberals, I'm done.
Nasty Nancy and UpChuck Schumer Singing Different Tune After President Trump Signs Executive Orders to Aid the Country
As we are all aware, House and Senate Democrats led by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer are holding the American people hostage once again.
The additional funding for unemployment insurance has run out and they were supposed to have negotiated another stimulus package including another check, but they have a wish list that they want to be fulfilled which includes agreeing to mail-in voting in November.
Gov. Newsom Cried: California Can't Afford Extra Unemployment Benefits
Over the weekend President Donald Trump signed executive orders for the following: adding $400 to federal unemployment extension (which replaces the $600 unemployment funds that expired last month), a payroll tax holiday, and eviction protections.
Of the $400 for unemployment, $300 will be paid by the federal government and the additional $100 is to be paid by the state.
Steve Scalise Warns: 'Joe Biden Wants to Take Our Guns Away'
Rep. Steve Scalise warned Americans during a Fox News interview that former Vice President Joe Biden wants to take our guns away. He suggested that he may not be coming right out and saying it but that he is letting the anti-gun left push the agenda for him. That way he doesn't have to get his hands dirty.
Scalise spoke about Americans using guns for self preservation, “Every day in America people use guns to save their lives.”
