The news cycle always moves fast, but it’s been at warp speed since 2020 began. Some stories are only coming to light weeks after they’ve happened — like in the case of this Tampa, FL Walmart looting.
Another story that didn’t get the press it deserved at the time was a press conference on June 8th. Chicago’s radical leftist Mayor Lori Lightfoot told her citizens that self-defense wasn’t necessary. Just call the police!
“Obviously we’re aware of the fact that Illinois is a concealed carry state, and that many people have weapons at their disposal in their homes and their businesses,” Lightfoot said.
Do not take matters into your own hand. Call the police. We’ve seen tragedy happen in this country, and recently, when people felt like they could take matters into their own hands.
Let me remind you of the killing of Mr. Arbury. Do not pick up arms and try to be the police. If there’s a problem, call 911. We will respond. But I urge people to show restraint and do not take matters into your own hands.”
Talk about a fruitcake!
This America-hating lunatic has more blood on the streets of her city than entire states that don’t have any of the gun control she loves so much!
While violent mobs are rampaging through the city and the police are already coming under fire — both literal and political — we’re supposed to hope they come in time to stop a violent thug.
Lady, you might live in a nice gated community that’s miles away from the neighborhoods where the bloodshed is happening but not all of us do.
Her elitist, pretentious comments show she’s just another radical leftist: security for me but not for thee.
