JESSE WATTERS (HOST): What we don't expect to hear much about tonight is violence in America's inner cities. Most of the mass shootings, which have taken place, mass shootings are defined as shootings where four or more people are shot at a time, take place with handguns in urban America. The year has already been bloody with homicides already on pace to top last year's highs in many cities and the summer hasn't even started yet. Most of them you'll never hear about, these mass shootings. They don't fit the media's narrative.

According to the FBI's latest data, in 2020, there were more than 8,000 murders using handguns. But for some reason, Joe Biden won't talk about that. The gangs shooting at each other in the south side of Chicago aren't using AR-15s. The guns they're using are hot guns. Criminals don't follow the law. Chicago has the strictest gun laws in the country but it's the murder capital of the country. Think about that for a second -- 47 people were shot just this last weekend there.
