Chicago, Illinois has some of the strictest gun laws in the entire country, and yet over the past holiday weekend it would seem that none of these strict gun laws have saved any lives, and may in fact have cost a few extra.

This past weekend Chicago witnessed record shootings only strengthening their place in one of the most crime ridden cities in America. Over the past 8 years Chicago has continued to slip down a dark and dangerous path with crime rates shooting through the roof.

One of the main causes for this is the left pushing their liberal agendas and polices onto Chicago, squeezing down on gun laws and advocating for racist violent movements like the Black Lives Matter movement.

Sadly, this past weekend is just another testament to the damage that the left has done to this city to let it get to this point. According to Louder with Crowder, 50 people were shot this past weekend alone in Chicago, with 12 of these victims dying from their injuries.

Police said most of the people shot, not all, were targeted.

“They were targeted knowing fully well that individuals would be at homes of family and friends celebrating the holiday,” Johnson said.

Johnson renewed calls for tougher penalties for repeat gun offenders and said officers have recovered 45 guns from the streets since Friday.

“These gun offenders have repeatedly shown us that they’re not going to play by society’s rules,” Johnson said. [via Louder with Crowder]

So these repeat criminal thugs aren't abiding to gun laws, which is no shock to anyone but the left will cling to this fact as some sort of argument to increase the already incredibly restrictive gun laws.

As you can see these thugs targeted their victims in their own homes in rival gang violence. Those others that were shot in their homes that were not directly involved in gang activity could have benefitted from self defense but likely have had too difficult of a time acquiring the necessary weapons as a result of liberal legislation.

Furthermore, it is disgustingly apparent that these thugs that roam the streets of Chicago clearly have no respect or regard for the law, likely as a result of groups like the BLM marginalizing police and portraying them as street thugs themselves.

This weekend is a horrible tragedy and serves as a stark reminder of what could come to every city if we let liberals continue to erode our Second Amendment rights and our ability to defend ourselves, while at the same time tying the hands of those who are paid and sworn to protect us from thugs like the BLM activist themselves.

Please share this on Facebook and show what could happen to any city if we don't fight back.
