Back in May 2019 Chiraq Mayor Lori Lightfoot (demorat) made some big promises. One of them was to confront chronic gun violence. At the time she said there’s “no higher calling than restoring safety and peace in our neighborhoods” and promised to develop a more proactive strategy against violence.”

Fast forward to yesterday’s headline from MyFoxChicago: “Chicago sees 51 homicides in January — highest in 4 years.”
