Acting on Project 21 Co-Chair’s Suggestion, Trump Sends Feds to Control Chicago Gun Crime

When Project 21 Co-Chairman Horace Cooper discussed rampant violence in Chicago on “The O’Reilly Factor” on January 26, he said the federal government could “absolutely” intervene to help end the “carnage” there.

About an hour after Horace’s appearance, President Donald Trump tweeted “I will send in the Feds!” if the “carnage” in Chicago wasn’t abated.  He’s now making good on that vow.

In late January, when the President tweeted, the number of shootings was 228.  On June 30, that number reached 1,714.  According to media reports, 20 agents from the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were dispatched to Chicago to coordinate with the Chicago Police Department and the Illinois State Police.  Their goal is to target gun traffickers and upgrade the technology used for tracking down the perpetrators of gun crimes.
