Chicago PD Brags About Confiscating Gun With Trump's Face on It: 'Outstanding Work'

The Chicago Police Department celebrated July Fourth by touting its confiscation of several firearms, including the recovery of a gun emblazoned with President Donald Trump’s image.

"Outstanding work": Chicago authorities on Saturday tweeted out photos of the weapons they seized in the Englewood district of the gun violence-plagued city.
  The seizure of the Trump gun, a Glock 19, came during a traffic stop on Friday night, according to the Chicago Tribune.
  • Four people were in the vehicle, but none of them were in possession of the weapon at the time, police said.
  • Ahead of the holiday weekend, Police Superintendent David Brown said law enforcement would undertake “strategic missions” to confiscate illegal guns.
  • Mayor Lori Lightfoot blamed "too many guns on the streets" and coronavirus lockdowns for an uptick in violence around Chicago.
Chicago "carnage": Trump has been a frequent critic of the high rate of gun violence in Democrat-run Chicago and recently penned an open letter slamming Lightfoot and Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker over their handling of the issue.
  At least 77 people were shot and 14 of them died in Chicago over the weekend, ABC affiliate WLS reported.
  • A child has been shot in Chicago each of the past three weekends, and nine children have died of gunshot wounds in the city since June 20.
