Horrific Weekend In Chicago Prompts A Call For A Change In Leadership

Chicago’s wind is blowing the wrong way these days. Seriously the wrong way. The city with the tightest gun control laws in the nation has turned into a full-on shooting gallery. In 2018 with over four months to go, 1600 people have been shot. Over the weekend of August 3-5 alone, 60 people were shot, ten of whom died. Gang activity is part of the issue, but by no means all of it.

More than 1,600 people have been shot in Chicago this year, including three children who were recently wounded while playing basketball. Residents said after the shooting that the situation is so bad, children are being kept indoors for their safety.

It’s obvious something needs to be done, and it is not adding more gun control. That’s what got law-abiding citizens into this mess in the first place. As talking heads and pundits all over the country try to come up with a solution for Chicago, former New York police member, and former Secret Service agent Dan Bongino has a suggestion:

“I’m not suggesting that Democrats or Republicans have all the answers here,” Bongino said. “But maybe it’s time for new people. You deserve better.”

Rahm Emanuel give up power in Chicago? Great idea, but it could turn out to be wishful thinking. He’s one of the stronger figures in American politics these days. The Democrats aren’t likely to surrender what he yields. But that’s not all there is to it here.

Chicago has had the gang and organized crime problems for far longer than just since the rise of violence in the 1960s. That city’s history with the mob and illegal activity goes back to before prohibition. It’s very ingrained and will take more than just a change in leadership to get anything done. It will take coordination and cleaning out of law enforcement and justice as well.

When it comes to that, Washington, D.C., isn’t the only swamp in the nation.

So, Dan, good idea, but it may not change much. At least not until the law abiding citizens can shoot back.

    New leadership? No, any liberal will tell you they just need more gun laws for the criminals to IGNORE. Sigh.
