    hicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot rejects claims gun control has failed her city and instead blames states without as many gun laws.

    In an interview posted by New This News only days removed from a weekend in which 41 were shot, nine fatally, in Chicago, Lightfoot blamed Chicago’s gun crime on Indiana. She described Indiana’s laws as too lax, and suggested the laws allow criminals to travel out of state, acquire guns, then return and use those guns criminally on the streets of Chicago.

    Lightfoot then suggested more federal gun control is the central solution for Chicago gun crime, that universal background checks must be enacted from the top down.

    Mexico has top-down gun control. The country has universal background checks and one gun store, and CBS News reports the store is the “one place in all of Mexico where you can legally buy a gun.” Despite these things, Mexico witnesses 94 firearm homicides a day compared with the 30 to 33 firearm homicides daily in the U.S.

    Mexico’s example is a stark reminder that gun laws, by their very nature, only impact the law-abiding. In the end they put the law-abiding in a more defenseless position, making them easier prey for the criminally-minded.

    I wonder if the 256 people shot and killed so far this year would agree.

    Those 256 could not be reached for comment. It's all the police's fault. And President Trump.

    We could say they are spending like drunken sailors. That would be unfair to drunken sailors, they're spending their OWN money.
