Happy Mother’s Day, Chicago-Style: 5 Homicides, 26 Wounded

How does Chicago celebrate Mother’s Day? Sadly, it’s not a joke. In a day set aside to revere mothers nationwide, Chicago’s gang bangers and criminal class opt instead to deliver hot lead instead of flowers. The final body count, tallied by the fine folks at HeyJackass.com: 5 homicides and 26 wounded.

Why, it’s almost like the Wild West. Oh wait. The Wild West was probably safer.

Moreover, the so-called “Wild West” didn’t have any of the gun control that Illinois residents suffer under today. In fact, for those keeping track, the Land of Lincoln is ranked the eighth strictest for gun control nationwide.

And our organization Guns Save Life is working to change that through legal action challenging the constitutionality of the Firearm Owners ID Card Act as well as the so-called “Protect Illinois Communities Act” gun and magazine ban. The PICA gun ban clearly isn’t living up to its name.

What’s life like on the ground in the Windy City? Greg Bishop of The Center Square hosts veteran Chicago reporter William Kelly to discuss it every Monday morning. Here’s what the most recent report sounded like:

As Mr. Kelly noted, more and more people are having serious concerns about the upcoming Democrat National Convention coming up in the third week of August.

Wirepoints covered some of Mayor Brandon Johnson’s remarks from this past weekend.

Whose side will Chicago Mayor Brandon Johnson be on if protesters become lawbreakers at the August Democratic National Convention in Chicago, and how will he direct police to respond?

Concerns that Johnson will side with lawbreakers already are common, and Johnson’s  interview published Sunday by the Chicago Tribune should increase those concerns.

The interviewers asked Johnson whether he agreed with police who forcibly broke up a recent protest at the Chicago Art Institute, arresting many protesters. Johnson answered that his primary concern was protesters’ rights. The reporters pressed further, asking, “Was the final response, the outcome — which led to dozens of arrests — was that necessary?”

Johnson’s answer:

Well, in some instances — and I’ve been a part of these demonstrations — in some instances, arrests are part of the objective. I’ll say it like that. I’ve taken arrest before. It’s not unprecedented for demonstrators to take arrest. The most important thing, though, here is that the First Amendment? Protected. Keeping people safe, it’s the primary goal, and we’ve done both of those.

Yes, it sounds almost like Mayor Johnson’s coming down on the side of the “mostly peaceful” Antifa anarchists, not law-and-order.

Comparisons between the DNC 1968 convention fiasco and 2024 have already started flying. The consensus is that the only difference between 1968 and 2024 is that Chicago’s then-Mayor Richard Daley supported law-and-order while Mayor Brandon Johnson supports the protesters.

The bottom line: the everyday gang violence in Chicago is reason enough to avoid the place. However, given the hordes of Antifa troublemakers no doubt descending on the city this summer, you don’t want to be within a quarter tank of gas of the DNC convention August 19-22.
