Democrat Chicago Mayor: Residents Should Not Use Guns to Defend Themselves (Watch)

The following article, Democrat Chicago Mayor: Residents Should Not Use Guns to Defend Themselves (Watch), was first published on Flag And Cross.

Lori Lightfoot succeeded former Obama aide Rahm Emmanuel as mayor of Chicago. You’d think most sane Chicagoans might want a do-over on both of those choices.

From The Blaze:

Chicago’s far-left Democratic Mayor Lori Lightfoot was asked earlier this week for her reaction to residents “taking matters into their own hands” in order to “protect their communities” amid the rioting over George Floyd’s death.

Lightfoot said, “Obviously we’re aware of the fact that Illinois is a concealed carry state, and that many people have weapons at their disposal in their homes and their businesses. Do not take matters into your own hands. Call the police.

She added, “Do not pick up arms and try to be the police. If there’s a problem, call 911. We will respond. I urge people to show strength and do not take matters into your own hands.


From Fox News:

Chicago Mayor Lori Lightfoot blasted President Trump and invoked an expletive Friday in response to his tweet after three days of protests in Minneapolis, Minn., when he called the protesters “THUGS” and tweeted that “when the looting starts, the shooting starts.”

Lightfoot said, “Donald Trump’s comment last night was profoundly dangerous. And we must stand firm in solidarity and say this is totally unacceptable no matter who is the speaker.

She added, “He wants to show failures on the part of Democratic local leaders, to throw red meat to his base. His goal is to polarize, to destabilize local government and inflame racist urges. We can absolutely not let him prevail. And I will code what I really want to say to Donald Trump. It’s two words. It begins with F and it ends with U.

Here’s a screenshot of Trump’s tweets:

And here’s what Twitter decided to do with those tweets:

BWAHAHAHA – what a f#cking idiot! The sheriff of Polk Co. Florida said it best: “Our residents have guns, they like guns, and they use guns. Citizens, if someone tries to break into your house or set fire to it – blow them backwards out your door or window. You will not be arrested….”
