With 30 shot and three killed, the bloodshed doesn’t stop in violent, “gun-controlled” and Democrat-run Chicago, not even for Christmas.
Despite being a town that constantly talks about gun control, gun banning, and passing anti-Second Amendment laws, Chicago is one of the most violent and bloody cities in the nation.
In fact, strictly by the numbers shot and killed each year, Chicago is the most dangerous city by far.
However, most “most dangerous” statistics are usually arranged by figuring shootings per capita. In other words, because St. Louis and Baltimore have fewer total residents than Chicago, then they are “more dangerous” than Chicago.
Still, Chicago has far more total shootings strictly by the numbers.
And all this blood shed doesn’t stop in the dangerous Windy City, not even during Christmas.
Per Chicago’s NBC affiliate:
At least 30 people in Chicago have been shot, three of them fatally, over the extended holiday weekend, which lasted from Friday 5 p.m. until Wednesday 5 a.m.
Five people were shot Friday evening, 16 people on Saturday, four people on Sunday and three people on Monday. Two people were shot, one fatally, on Christmas Day.
The Christmas Day murder happened during the morning in the Little Village neighborhood on the Southwest Side, according to Chicago police.
Last weekend wasn’t a ton better:
Last weekend, a west suburban man was killed and 23 others were wounded in shootings throughout Chicago.
… and last year was also not too much better, either:
In 2017, five men were killed and at least 20 other people were wounded by gunfire over a four-day Christmas holiday weekend.
So far this year, there have been 582 total homicides in Chicago, with 491 of those shot and killed. All total there have been 2,921 shot in the Windy City.
This is what you get when Democrats run your city.
