Nationally syndicated radio talk show host Mark Levin said on Monday that liberals “have an enormous amount of blood on their hands” for pushing gun control in Chicago. Gun control “wouldn’t have stopped a damn thing,” Levin stated, referring to the 10 people murdered and 5 wounded over the weekend.

“Oh, gun control, oh that’ll do it. Like that illegal alien that killed that 32 year old, gun control would have stopped him, and stopped the death of these 10, right? No, it wouldn’t have stopped a damn thing,” Levin said on his July 6 broadcast. “Liberals do not have an answer to any of this. Do you want to know why? Because they’ve caused a lot of it. Because they have an enormous amount of blood on their hands.”

Here is a transcript of what Levin said:

“10 killed, 55 wounded in 4th of July violence in Chicago, Chicago Tribune -- gun violence. One of those killed was a seven year old. Now, I don’t know the race of who did what. I can tell you, if a certain race did the shooting and a certain race died, we’d know all about it. But that doesn’t matter to me. That’s the left. That’s the media. That’s how they see things.  

“10 human beings killed in Chicago over the weekend, 55 wounded. Barack Obama doesn’t say a thing, not a word, because there was no Confederate flag. There never was a Confederate flag there. It’s irrelevant, because there weren’t cops involved or accused of some lawless act. And apparently he keeps his mouth shut when this crime occurs in poor neighborhoods. Because he doesn’t plan to do a damn thing about it.

“Oh, gun control, oh that’ll do it. Like that illegal alien that killed that 32-year-old, gun control would have stopped him and stopped the death of these 10, right? No, it wouldn’t have stopped a damn thing.

“Liberals do not have an answer to any of this. Do you want to know why? Because they’ve caused a lot of it. Because they have an enormous amount of blood on their hands. Oh yes, they do.”
