Chicago Mayor Now Blames 'Guns From Other States' For Horrific Violence

As Chicago continues to experience an explosion in crime, mayor Lori Lightfoot has found a new bogeyman to blame; guns from out of state (and not those firing them).

Our gun problem is related to the fact that we have too many illegal guns in our streets — 60% of which come from states outside of Illinois," Lightfoot said during a Sunday interview with CNN.

Chicago Mayor Lightfoot: "We are being inundated with guns from states that have virtually no gun control, no background checks, no ban on assault weapons -- that is hurting cities like Chicago."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

I have to wonder if Mayor Lightfoot can actually back up these claims with real numbers and statistics; this "60% of illegal guns coming from outside the state" doesn't quite pass the "smell test" for me.

In attempting to deflect blame for this violence, she is also telling Chicagoans and the world that she cannot keep the city safe, which is the real problem here.
