 It's no longer the actor that commits the violence but the tool that they use. I have said here before that the lack of responsibility of a few makes the whole lose their rights to bear arms. Of course class warfare and drugs from Mexico don't help much either.
         It's the perfect set up for massive gun control and applying total surveillance 24/7 of all the population to instill law and order. This will quash all their problems and ensure that there is no civil unrest with violence that will be uncontrolled and that all edicts and laws passed by legislatures will have the power by lethal force to instill their policies.
 Henceforth, it will be no longer a free country under the Bill of Rights in my opinion. The State Nation Guard Is your Second Amendment will be their answer to any questions of a take over by Dishonest politicians.The common person cannot be trusted any more with firearms for the common good is their motto bet on it.

Lightfoot - who just admonished Chicago police for asking Trump to help 'bring back civility' to the Windy City - has received pushback from community leaders and experts - such as Cure Violence CEO Gary Slutkin, who told TIME that the police "might be able to reduce the flow [of illegal weapons] slightly or temporarily by collecting guns off the streets, but there is no demonstration of it being truly effective."

So, the mayor of one of the country's most violent cities is now blaming guns for said violence, and won't allow federal officials into the city to keep the peace.

"We can't just allow anyone to come into Chicago, play police in our streets, in our neighborhoods, when they don't know the first thing about our city. That's a recipe for disaster. And that's what you're seeing playing out in Portland on a nightly basis," Lightfoot told CNN.

It's always somebody else's fault, and help is not wanted.

    Just typical of any DEMOCRAT: Projection or blame-shifting when their policies fail. So whats next: More of the same stupid policies.

    We are seeing the culmination of the dumbing down of America and the resultant ease of manipulation of our citizenry.

    'Mostly peaceful protests' seems to mean fewer than 10 police officers are taking a brick to the head.

    Federal LEOs are deployed to protect Federal Property in Portland and this idiot from Chicago is trying to convince people that they are prowling the streets, looking for jaywalkers to abduct, interrogate make disappear.

    I am not a fan of federal officers being used in the streets of our cities, but if the local dirtbags will not protect Federal Property, there are few other realistic options.

    Yes, Mayor Lightfoot, a large number of guns that are used in your city come from outside of Cook County and from outside of the State of Illinois.  These guns are being used to protect and promote the trade in drugs that also come from outside of Cook County and outside the State of Illinois.  The people using the drugs and the guns, however, are not from outside of Cook County or the State of Illinois.  They are home-grown and are a product of the culture and social norms that have been allowed to grow and fester in your once fine city, Mayor.  

    Ironically, it seems Ms. Lightfoot is going to need Federal help to stem the flow of firearms into Chicago.  I wonder if she would reject that assistance?

    Keep the feds out. The problem will take care of itself, one way or the other.

    The poll results are in: Lightfoot is an incompetent, irrelevant and immaterial affirmative action public employee. Somebody needs to assemble a recall petition to remove Mayor Lightfoot due to her incompetency.

    Agree but with DEMOCRATs the next in the queue is more of a Marxist than the preceding.

     Let them protest and burn down their own city and have close contact with cov 19 and deal with it all in a failing society of Socialism and stupidity and think The Democrats will save them.  They will reap what the sow.

    The mayors of Seattle and Portland are claiming victory in taking back their cities from an occupying force of Federal officers.

    The irony of the statements is mind-numbing.

    Of course the mayors will want federal dollars to rebuild what their policies have allowed to be destroyed. Bob
