Mayor Tries To Blame This “Common Enemy” For Tragic Death Of Young Officer

If there is one thing that elected officials from The Windy City need to be keenly aware of, it’s Chicago’s history with gun violence, and what precisely caused it.

The general consensus seems to be that the 1982 Chicago handgun ban was a catalyst for the extreme and extraordinary gun violence that plague’s the midwest metropolis. That’s because, very simply, law-abiding citizens gave up their weapons while the criminals did not. The clear advantage of the Chicago underworld’s sheer force allowed the drug gangs to flourish and trouble to rise.

Now, as a number of police officers were attacked in Chicago, the city’s mayor had the audacity to blame the firearms involved.

Hours after Chicago police officer Ella French was killed during a traffic stop, Mayor Lori Lightfoot (D) blamed “guns,” describing them as “a common enemy.”

Breitbart News reports that French was working a traffic stop Saturday night just after 9 p.m. when at least one suspect opened fire on her and the male officer who was her partner. The gunfire proved fatal for French and left the male officer in critical condition.

There were three suspects in the car from which the gunfire came: two males and a female. CNN notes that all three suspects are in custody.

That’s when Lightfoot made the ridiculous claim.

The idea bad people are only bad on account of their guns is ludicrous on its face, and Lightfoot should be embarrassed to have fallen for it.
