Illinois Democrat Requests National Guard For Chicago To Help Stop Overwhelming Violence

Call in the Illinois National Guard


You want to know what happens to a city after being ruled by Democrats for decades, just have a look at Chicago. They have some of the most restrictive gun laws in the nation and as a result they have one of the most violent cities in the nation. Most of the gun crimes committed in Chicago is gang or drug related, but guess what, all the gun laws you can muster up and not even slowed criminals down from obtaining the weapons of their choice.

Chicago has not had a Republican Mayor since 1927, so they have had free run for their socialistic experiments for more than 85 years and anyone can see the results. Just over the July 4th weekend there were 9 fatal shootings and several dozen people injured by guns as well. Other forms of crime are also rampant in the city as well as indicated by the Chicago Crime Map.

So one Chicago lawmaker's solution for helping curb the overwhelming violence is to call in the National Guard and the Illinois State Police. Regardless of what happens and who is called in to see if they can curb crime, they will still be dealing with the symptom instead of the cause. As long as we live in a society that glorifies violence through moves and gory video games and then have those same Hollywood celebrities staring the those movies hypocritically tell us we need to "Demand a plan" to end gun violence, calling in the National Guard will never be the solution.

Gun violence in Chicago is so severe that a state lawmaker wants state police and the National Guard to assist the local cops.

State Rep. Monique Davis (D-Chicago) is making the request.

“I am requesting with this press conference that Gov. Patrick Quinn order the Illinois National Guard (and) the Illinois State Police (to) come to Chicago and work with our mayor Ron (sic) Emanuel to provide safety for the children, especially,” she said at a news conference in Springfield.

Other state lawmakers accompanied Davis to recognize the severity of the problem, and the extent to which it carries beyond Chicago’s troubled neighborhoods to the entire city and other parts of the state, but not necessarily to concur with her solution.

Over the holiday weekend, 74 people were shot and 12 killed in Chicago, and Davis says the police don’t have the manpower to make arrests.
