(TheLibertyRevolution.com)- Five people were reportedly shot in Democrat-run Chicago on Thanksgiving day, according to reports. Among the five people shot on the American holiday was a 16-year-old boy, according to the city’s police department.
FOX 32 reported that the young boy was shot in the left shoulder, and was shot by another male who was “handling a handgun” inside of an apartment. The 16-year-old is now in “serious condition.”
Among the other victims was a 19-year-old woman who was shot in the legs as she walked on the 7900 block of South Bishop Street. She appeared to be a victim of a random shooting and is thankfully in stable condition.
A 28-year-old man was another shooting victim on Thanksgiving. Reports said that while walking on the sidewalk in the Back of the Yards part of the city, the man said he suddenly heard gunshots and immediately “felt pain.”
FOX 32 said that he was shot in the right leg and taken to the University of Chicago Medical Center. He was in “good condition” at the time of arrival.
FOX 32 also reported how at 2:50 p.m., another 28-year-old was sitting in a vehicle on West 58th Street when somebody suddenly started firing gunshots. The man was grazed in the head by a bullet before being taken to Christ Medical Center. Police said he was in “good condition” when he arrived at the hospital.
Another 32-year-old man was walking on South Avers Avenue when he was approached by somebody who fired shots at him. He was taken to Mt. Sinai Hospital in “serious condition” and had a gunshot wound on his back.
Chicago has seen steadily increasing gun fatalities and shootings in recent years, while Democratic Mayor Lori Lightfoot continues to place blame on neighboring states. Lightfoot has repeatedly suggested that the more relaxed gun laws in nearby states was the reason why so many were being shot, but has yet to explain why she believes people in her own city are choosing to go out and shoot innocent people.
“We are being inundated with guns from states that have virtually no gun control, no background checks, no ban on assault weapons,” Lightfoot said in July.
In the last weekend alone, 50 people were shot in Chicago.
