ANALYSIS/OPINION:

The Las Vegas massacre was a terrible man-made atrocity, with 58 innocents dead. It led the Democrats to scream about gun control without giving the affected victims and their love ones the opportunity to heal. Sen. Dianne Feinstein of California was among the most vocal, along with the loser of the 2016 presidential election.

The year-to-date Chicago murder number is 530, yet we hear no Democrats screaming. The mayor is silent, as are Barack Obama, the Rev. Al Sharpton, Ms. Feinstein, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York. Where are they on this matter — a Democrat-controlled city with a sky-high murder rate? Why aren’t they up in arms? Perhaps they scream only when there are white deaths and simply ignored the black murder victims.
