According to CBS Chicago, three people were killed and 40 were wounded during shootings this weekend in Chicago.

Four shootings took place on August 2, 12 shootings on August 3, and five shootings on August 4.

CBS indicated that there were “two mass shootings overnight in Chicago — both in the West Side’s Lawndale neighborhood.”

Curiously, the state of Illinois has a cornucopia of gun control on the books, including red flag gun confiscation laws. Even with these laws in place, shootings still occur frequently.

Nevertheless, lawmakers on the GOP side of the aisle like Congressman Dan Crenshaw and Senator Lindsey Graham are calling for “red flag” style measures.

Pro-Second Amendment researcher John Lott has repeatedly argued that these laws are useless against criminals.

When he looked at data from 1970 through 2017, “Red Flag laws appear to have had no significant effect on murder, suicide, the number of people killed in mass public shootings, robbery, aggravated assault or burglary. There is some evidence that rape rates rise. These laws apparently do not save lives.”

In a similar vein, Connecticut was one of the first states to pass a red flag law in 1999.

Even with that law on the books, Adam Lanza carried out his atrocity at Sandy Hook.

So, there may be more behind mass shootings than gun control or lack thereof.

The fighter himself commented on this news, declaring “The anti communism bus tour will be arriving at a city near you #supernecessary.”

 

Masvidal, whose parents are Cuban and Peruvian, has been an outspoken Trump supporter.

Unlike other sports leagues, the UFC has uniquely positioned itself by not adopting the woke antics of leagues such as the NFL and NBA.

Masvidal is a veteran of MMA promotions such as Strikeforce, Bellator, and the UFC. He is currently fighting under the UFC banner and holds a record of 35-14. According to MMA website Sherdog, he is currently ranked in 4th place . Similarly, he is ranked in 4th place according to the UFC’s rankings.

The Welterweight fighter currently owns the record for the fastest knockout in UFC history, after he knocked out Ben Askren with a flying knee five seconds into the first round. Additionally, Masvidal won the “BMF” championship against Nate Diaz in 2019 after he battered Diaz and forced a technical knockout via doctor stoppage.

Masvidal fought current welterweight champion Kamaru Usman on less than a week’s notice for the UFC Welterweight Championship at UFC 251, after he replaced the original challenger Gilbert Burns, who tested positive for the Wuhan virus. Before the fight took place, Masvidal signed a multi-fight contract with the UFC. Masvidal ended up losing the fight via unanimous decision.

Nevertheless, the card reportedly netted 1.3 million pay-per-view buys in America.
