Chicago Violence Over July 4 Weekend Leaves at Least 13 Dead, Including 7-Year-Old

The July 4 weekend has always signified the official kickoff to summer in most areas.

For big cities, it also tends to be one of the most violent weekends of the year, as was the case again this year in Chicago.

By Sunday morning, 67 people had been shot, at least 13 were killed, including a 7-year-old girl and a 14-year-old boy.

Where is the Outrage?

The violence this weekend in Chicago is an uptick over “normal” weekends, but this is still normal activity.

Sadly, it will mostly be brushed under the rug by groups like Black Lives Matter because these deaths do not fit the narrative they want to push.

These deaths do matter, though…

Little Natalie Wallace, a 7-year-old little girl, was just playing outside of her grandmother’s house early Saturday night shots started to ring out.

Three men reportedly pulled up, got out of their car, then sent roughly 20 rounds in the direction of the house, where numerous children were present.

Natalie was shot in the head and pronounced dead later at a local hospital.

Democrat Mayor Lori Lightfoot stated, “Tonight, a 7-year-old girl in Austin joined a list of teenagers and children whose hopes and dreams were ended by the barrel of a gun.

“We cannot grow numb to this.

“We are making progress in slowing shootings, but we have to do better, every single one of us.”

Dems Suddenly Silent

Every weekend in Chicago is a mass shooting, but because this is black-on-black crime, Democrats simply don’t care.

In addition to Chicago, virtually the same story can be told for cities like Dallas, Philadelphia, and Detroit.

We have also seen numerous videos this weekend of black militant-like groups walking down streets armed to the teeth, literally begging for confrontation with local militia groups, yet still no outrage.

You see, gun control is another prop for Democrats, just like minorities, only to be brought into public view when it is convenient for them.

If it doesn’t serve a political purpose, they simply don’t care. If they did, violence in our big cities would be front and center on their agendas to fix, but as we all know, it is not even on their radar.
