The percentage of Americans who think crime is getting worse is at a 50-year high.

Chicago’s new Mayor, Brandon Johnson, has long advocated for defunding the police and gun control for law-abiding citizens. Johnson, who presided over a 38% increase in major crimes in his first thirty days in office, has allowed two thousand police positions to go unfilled.

For his protection, Hizzoner has 149 officers serving as a phalanx of bodyguards.

Politicians Hide Behind Bodyguards

While the average citizen faces record-breaking violent crime, elitist “defund the police” politicians hide behind bodyguards.

Freshman Senator Raphael Warnock (D – GA) spent over $600,000 for personal security in 2022. The National Rifle Association posted a video of Reverend Warnock laughing at church-goers who defend themselves with guns.

Illinois Governor J.B. Pritzker has two dozen Illinois State Troopers on his protective detail.

Americans Are Locked and Loaded

As Americans have watched cities looted and burned, with no regard for personal property rights, they have decided to take advantage of their right to bear arms for personal protection.

The number of Americans legally carrying handguns doubled from 3 million in 2015 to 6 million in 2019. The number carrying handguns in October 2022 skyrocketed to 16 million as concerns about violent crime soared.


More than 70 people were shot, 13 fatally, in Chicago over the Father’s Day and Juneteenth holidays.

While the Windy City devolves into a crime-ridden hell-hole of violent crime, the Mayor hides behind a small army of 149 men and women with guns.
