On July 26, 2020, Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot declared on CNN’s “State of the Union” that the Windy City is being “inundated with guns” from other states.
She then called on President Donald Trump to pass gun control measures if he was genuinely serious about fixing the situation in Chicago.
Axios reported that at least “414 people have been murdered in Chicago through July 19.”
“The fact of the matter is our gun problem is related to the fact that we have too many illegal guns in our streets — 60% of which come from states outside of Illinois. We are being inundated with guns from states that have virtually no gun control, no background checks, no ban on assault weapons,” Lightfoot commented.
“That is the thing that if the president really wanted to help, that and the other things I identified in my letter he could do today, tomorrow. But he’s not really interested in helping in that way,” she added.
Last week, Trump and Attorney General Bill Barr announced that the Justice Department would “immediately surge” law enforcement to Chicago in order to tame the violence. Lightfoot claims to have received promises that the federal agents sent to Chicago would be focused on dealing with gun violence instead of targeting protesters.
“No troops, no agents that are coming in outside of our knowledge, notification and control that are violating people’s constitutional rights. That’s the framework,” Lightfoot remarked.
“We can’t just allow anyone to come into Chicago, play police in our streets and neighborhoods when they don’t know the first thing about our city. That’s a recipe for disaster,” she concluded.
Like most leftist elected officials, Lightfoot prefers to blame outside forces for her city’s dilapidated state as opposed to her misguided policies.
Taking responsibility is not the Left’s strong suit.
VOTER FRAUD: 20-Year-Old Man Arrested After Allegedly Changing Voter Registration Information of Florida Governor Ron DeSantis
Anthony Guevara faces two felony charges.
CBS Miami reports that police have arrested a 20-year-old man for allegedly changing the voter registration information of Florida governor Ron DeSantis.
Governor DeSantis recently found out that his address had been changed to an address in West Palm Beach. Florida Department of Law Enforcement agents then launched an investigation into the matter.
They traced the address change back to 20-year-old Anthony Guevara, who apparently altered the governor’s information “via computer over a web browser.”

Miami New Times reports that Guevara faces two felony charges of accessing an electronic device without authorization and altering a person’s voter registration information without consent. He is currently being held on $5,000 bond.
This surely won’t do much to ease people’s fears of voter fraud in the Sunshine State. Nevertheless, President Donald Trump said Tuesday night that he is “winning big” in Florida:
We are spending more in Florida, and we are winning big in Florida. Actually, we are winning big in many states as the Great Red Wave begins to form!
