Months after taking to Twitter to say he would send in "the Feds" to help reduce Chicago's murder rate, President Trump's administration has sent in agents to combat the ongoing violence. 

Authorities confirmed Thursday to The Chicago Sun-Times about 20 additional agents with the U.S. Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives have been sent to the city.

Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions appeared to confirm Friday that the federal government is sending help, while decrying the crime epidemic on the city's streets. 

"Crime and killings in Chicago have reached such epidemic proportions that I am sending in Federal help. 1714 shootings in Chicago this year!" Trump tweeted. 

Murder rate soars in Baltimore, hits five-month record



WASHINGTON — As the homicide rate in the nation’s capital drops, it is a much different story 40 miles north in Baltimore, Maryland, where murders are soaring to record levels.

A deadly shooting on Wednesday marked Baltimore’s 146th homicide so far this year — the highest number the city has ever recorded during the first five months of a year, as first reported by the Baltimore Sun.

The number of homicides is more than 30 percent higher than this time last year and the number has climbed about 85 percent when compared to three years ago.

“No one is proud of this violence,” said Baltimore police spokesman T.J. Smith in May. “It shouldn’t be tolerated. We should be doing what we can to make sure there is not another person who is associated with that number.”

The city’s murder rate is among the worst in the nation and has outpaced the level of violence seen in the 1990s, when killings routinely topped 300 annually. It also surpasses rates in Chicago and New Orleans, cities also struggling with gun violence.




Just another Democratic run city decending into chaos.


way to go libs..




WELL DONE, DEMOCRATS: The Entire State Of Illinois Is About To Go Bankrupt


 ..keep resisting


Right on! The Republicans are going to ride in and take away all those guns being used for all those homicides.


Oh, wait.

Never mind.

   It is argued that guns are responsible for the violence that is caused by them, if those involved in the crime did not have a gun the violent act would not have occurred. “This theory holds that thousands of gun murders [are committed] by law-abiding citizens who might have stayed law-abiding if they had not possessed firearms".

The loons on the left want to blame the inanimate object that was a tool in the crime; not the person who made the choice to use it.  If the access to guns was made harder, or even illegal, then the crime and violence will decrease because the guns will not be around to cause the violence.  Well back in 1976 it the District of Columbia passed a law requiring a license to own or possess a handgun within city limits. The District then stopped issuing licenses thereby creating a de facto gun ban. As a result, Washington D.C. has one of the highest crime rates in the country. So the fix that was put in place to help only encouraged the opposite.
