Chicago mayoral contender Lori Lightfoot says the killings at a Santa Fe, Texas, high school and other mass shootings shouldn’t obscure the city’s deadly problems with gun violence.

“We’re now talking in the news about the tragic shooting at the school just outside of Houston, which of course is a tragedy. But the reality is, whether it’s in Houston, whether it’s in Parkland or elsewhere, we’re having that kind of body count, that kind of tragedy that destroys individuals and families and communities, on at least a monthly basis if not sooner,” Lightfoot said Sunday on WGN-AM 720.
