During the weekend of shootings, Chicago police investigated numerous homicides and a mass shooting of six people in West Englewood.
Residents of Chicago can take some solace as shootings in the Windy City have dropped by 20% below their 2018 rate so far in 2019. On top of that, these numbers were well below the record-breaking year of 2018, which had roughly twice the number of people shot through April 8.

Curiously, Chicago features very stringent gun control laws and questionable policing practices. According to the Chicago Sun Times, Cook County even got rid of its gang database earlier this year “because it was unable to build a robust intelligence-sharing operation with all of the police jurisdictions in the county”.

In general, the state of Illinois is one of the most anti-gun states in the country with Guns & Ammo magazine placing it in 41st place according to its 2018 rankings.

Illinois was one of the states that responded swiftly after the Parkland shooting in 2018, when it passed 72 hour waiting periods for all firearms purchases and red flag gun confiscation laws.

However, rural Illinois wants to avoid the same fate as its urban counterpart in Chicago. BLP reported in February on several rural counties passing gun control nullification ordinances in complete defiance of Illinois’s pro-gun control legislature.

Rival Candidate Spreads Fake News Attacks Against Anti-Lockdown Hero Shelley Luther

Published

on

Shelley Luther, the candidate for Texas’ Senate District 30, is beginning to face heat from her rivals in the Senate seat’s special election.

One of her opponents, Drew Springer, the State Representative for Texas’s 68th District, called her out for supposed hypocrisy on the Wuhan virus lockdowns.

On Facebook he commented, “Shelley Luther sang a different tune about forced COVID-19 shutdowns before she realized she could use it for her political benefit.

While she thought her record could be deleted from Facebook, there was only so long she could hide. #ShutdownShelley

Springer referred to a comment Luther made on March 16 where she said “Just my opinion. If some major cities are closing down building where large gatherings occur, then EVERY city should. The problem will not fix if some people are out and about.”

However, several users commenting on Springer’s Facebook post were quick to point out some nuances in Luther’s comments.

The main gist of their comments was that Luther said that it didn’t make any sense for a few venues to remain open and others not be closed.  In essence, she was calling for policy consistency, not for selective enforcement of lockdowns.

Luther made a name for herself earlier this year when she resisted the city of Dallas’ shutdown order and continued operating her business in defiance of this ordinance.

She would later face jail time for her refusal to comply but would later be pardoned by Texas Governor Greg Abbott.

Luther has received endorsements from organizations such as Texas Gun Rights PAC for her staunch liberty activism and commitment to American principles such as the Second Amendment.

The Dallas salon owner is one of the more high-profile state level candidates running for office and has become a national figure of resistance against the Wuhan virus lockdowns.

A Luther victory would represent a major win for Texas conservatives who have been disappointed with the legislative body’s performance over the years.
