Boom: Dana Loesch Unloads On Chicago Mayor For Failed Policies That Benefit Prohibited Gun Possessors

It's no secret that Chicago has some of the strictest gun control laws on the books. Sadly, the Windy City is also one of the most violent hotbeds in the nation. During Labor Day weekend, 25 people were shot. Seven died from their injuries. Texas Sen. Ted Cruz (R) used the example to show, once again, why disarmed law-abiding Americans is a bad idea. 

Naturally, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot didn't like the insinuation. Instead of talking about her city's failed gun control policies, Lightfoot immediately blamed "states dominated by coward Republicans," for guns coming from outside Illinois. 

Second Amendment advocate Dana Loesch took Lightfoot to the woodshed, using local Chicago reporting to refute the mayor's so called "facts." Loesch pointed out the biggest flaw in Lightfoot's argument: it doesn't matter where prohibited possessors obtain their firearms. They're still obtaining the firearm on the black market in an illegal fashion. 

And it doesn't help when repeat offenders are slapped on the wrist with reduced charges. If anything, this sends a message to criminals. It tells them that it's okay to commit crimes, especially if it involves a firearm, because they'll get a reduced sentence. 

Let's be clear: Lightfoot is ashamed of the violence in Chicago. If her city's gun control policies were truly working, then Democrats would repeatedly point to Chicago as an example of why "common sense gun laws" are needed across the nation. But they don't. In fact, any time a law-abiding gun owner mentions the violence in Chicago, it's like we're supposed to omit Chicago from the discussion. It's like we're supposed to completely ignore the continual issues the city has.
