Over the weekend, Democrat U.S. senator from Illinois, Dick Durbin, tried to blame Republicans for the horrible level of violence in Chicago:
This is heartbreaking. Chicago has lost far too many aspiring young people to senseless gun violence. When will Republicans in Congress finally decide to act? https://t.co/4dCk5YODwZ

Puh-leeze! Give it a rest, Dick, and go look in a mirror:
The last Republican Mayor of Chicago left office in 1931. It’s weird to try to score political points based on violence in a city your side has controlled for more than 8 decades. https://t.co/xFWtFYEfyI

If anything, what’s going on in Chicago is evidence that the laws Durbin supports don’t work, but he’d rather try and score political points by blaming Republicans:
A city run for decades by Democrats, with some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation.
But sure, Republicans are to blame. https://t.co/FWylfJfsFA

They run Chicago? They run Illinois?

Serving the people of Illinois? Typical Democrat who chooses to blame Republicans for the failure of years of poor leadership with D’s after their names.

Democrats and only Democrats are responsible. Quit complaining. Own it. https://t.co/WnXPb3K4wE

One final question:
When will Democrats, who have run Chicago for nearly 100 years, accept responsibility for the 1000’s of deaths on their watch? https://t.co/vev4DdaP8j

Most likely answer: Never.
