The Gun Violence War

By Daniel Nardini

Lawndale News Chicago's Bilingual Newspaper - CommentaryIn Minneapolis, two people were wounded in a gun battle that took place at the Mall of America. Holiday shoppers were running and hiding for their lives, and thank goodness more people were not injured. In Philadelphia, six gunmen opened fire on a busy street filled with New Year’s Eve shoppers. People fled for their lives, and six people were shot. In Chicago, the number of people who have been killed by gun violence up to the beginning of this year is almost 800. Out of this number killed, 106 of them were 19 years old and younger.

Since the Wuhan virus pandemic, crime and shootings have skyrocketed. Worse, the number of guns bought illegally has dramatically gone up, and with the lack of police in so many Chicago communities, this has only emboldened criminals and gangs to run rampant. At the same time, the Chicago government is still at odds with its own police department and this has badly affected police morale. At the same time, the City of Chicago is now requiring all restaurant and bar establishment to enforce a vaccine passport policy where patrons and visitors MUST show vaccination cards to prove they have been vaccinated against the Wuhan virus and so many of its variants.

But what about the real epidemic of gun violence that truly IS taking the lives of so many Chicago residents? What about the cold-blooded killings that are taking place and all of the children killed who will never grow up? What about any and all of Chicago’s communities who are now deathly afraid of the criminals and gangs who can roam around at will? Why are the priorities of Chicago so messed up? As much as I may love Chicago, right now I am grateful I am not living there. I feel awful for all of those whom I know who are there. The way I see it, there is no rule of law in Chicago, and it seems almost as if all power is being concentrated into the hands of a few people. It seems as if the people of Chicago have no real representation, and the city is being run like a Communist People’s Republic. If things keep going the way they are going, I am deathly afraid that this cannot end well.
