Northwards of 3,100 people were shot in Chicago so far in the year of 2020.
According to a Chicago Tribune report, the total number of shootings victims came out to 3,132 thus far. AWR Hawkins of Breitbart News noted that these numbers included “the fatally wounded as well as those who survived.”
In the Tribune report, the number of homicides that took place from January 1, 2020, up until September 28, 2020, reached 576. On the other hand, CNN reported fewer than 500 homicides for the entire year of 2019.
What’s taking place in Chicago is part of a larger trend sweeping across the country. Democrat-controlled cities have become cesspools of corruption and public disorder. As a result of gun control policies and lax criminal justice policies, these cities have descended into total disarray and lawful individuals have little means of defending themselves.
Hawkins highlighted some of the cities witnessing this uptick in violence:
Homicides in Dem0crat-controlled St. Louis are surging too. In fact, on September 21, 2020, Breitbart News reported murders in Mayor Lyda Krewson’s (D) St. Louis are on pace to reach a level not seen in 50 years.
Even New York City, which was known for its aggressive anti-crime policies in the 1990s, has also fallen to this criminal wave. Hawkins brought some perspective to skyrocketing crime in the Big Apple:
Moreover, Breitbart News reported that Mayor Bill de Blasio’s (D) New York City surpassed 1,000 shootings for the year before August 2020 was over. The New York Post reported NYPD data indicating there were 1,004 shootings in NYC as of August 30, 2020. There were 537 shootings by that same time in 2019.
Democrat officials have no one to blame but themselves for their cities’ dilapidated conditions. Republicans should hammer home the stark differences between GOP-controlled and Democrat-controlled jurisdictions.
For example, in red states and cities, Americans can enjoy more gun rights, better business conditions, and stronger public security institutions. Republicans should not shy away from making these comparisons during the 2020 election cycle.
Florida Senator Moving to Designate “Donald J. Trump Highway” in Honor of 45th President
One of the greatest presidents in American history.
Florida State Senator Anthony Sabatini will move to rename a highway in the state “Donald J. Trump Highway,” in honor of the 45th President.
Sabatini made the announcement in a tweet on Tuesday. US 27 ultimately travels from Miami, Florida, to Fort Wayne, Indiana, traversing the United States from south to north. The segment located in Florida would be renamed after Trump in Sabatini’s proposal.
This legislative session I will be sponsoring an amendment to rename U.S. Highway 27 as the “President Donald J. Trump Highway.” Looking forward to working on this important designation honoring one of the greatest Presidents in American History. pic.twitter.com/x2gNzv8pxv

Public infrastructure is increasingly named after Presidents while they’re in office or shortly after their departure. Several schools and highways have been named after former President Barack Obama less than five years after his departure from office. Every President in recent American history has received a highway named in his honor, usually after leaving office.
Republicans have strong majorities in both of the Florida House of Representatives and Senate, ensuring a strong chance that Sabatini’s highway proposal will ultimately succeed and become law.
President Trump is the first President in history from Florida, having changed his state of residency from New York to the southern state during his term in office. The President is slated to begin his post-presidency life by returning to the state on Wednesday, where it’s expected that he’ll reside at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach.
