If you’re watching the news, you’re aware there was a mass shooting in West Texas yesterday that claimed the lives of at least eight people. It’s the biggest story of this Labor Day Weekend, but it does not represent the city with the most gun violence. Chicago is one death away from eclipsing the total gun violence tally from West Texas, and that’s halfway through the holiday weekend.
The reason is obvious. Mainstream media is all about highlighting a mass shooting that involved an “AR-style” weapon to promote their gun control agenda. But that narrative falls on its face when we look north to Chicago where multiple shootings will account for greater Labor Day Weekend carnage despite having the most obtuse gun control laws in the nation.
What Chicago tells us is really the same thing West Texas tells us. The problem is not with guns. The problem is with criminals, as it has been discovered suspected West Texas shooter Seth Ator had a criminal record. This is the real source of the problem, but the left is unwilling to acknowledge this reality because their goal is strictly to ban firearms for law abiding citizens even if doing so actually obstructs the public’s ability to defend itself. Chicago needs more law abiding citizens carrying firearms. Gun control is a failed experiment.
At least 27 people have been shot — seven of them fatally — so far in gun violence across Chicago over the Labor Day holiday weekend.
The number of fatal shootings so far has already surpassed the total from last year’s Labor Day weekend, when four people were killed and 23 others were wounded in citywide shootings.
If gun control worked, Chicago would not have so many more shooting victims than West Texas. But you won’t hear that reported because the left’s and the media’s agenda is to scream for Republicans to “do something.” Selective reporting is a joke.
Chicago is the gun control narrative buster. It doesn’t work. It makes people less safe. Yet it won’t get headlines because the Democrats and their media lapdogs don’t want Americans to know the truth.
