No, I don’t think it’s a gun problem. Funny how you jumped to that conclusion.

Gun laws that haven’t changed in 20+ years could be an issue. Guns have changed, gun ownership has changed, why are we dealing with old laws?

What else has increased exponentially since around when krasner took office? Why if it isn’t gun sales. Want some rational reasoning … more guns = more gun deaths 😱

Maybe is Larry Would actually w fire the dozens of gun laws already on the books and jail those who possess illegal firearms it would help reduce murder and other crime. Wtf are new gun laws needed for when he won’t enforce the old ones?

Lol, I asked you if you think guns are the problem, I didn't jump to any conclusions. Diirectly above you say you don't think it's a gun problem in your first sentence. In your last sentence, you say more guns equal more gun deaths. I think you're confused on your own position

I'll help you, the exponential increase in violent crime and murders in Philadelphia is not due to lack of gun laws. It is due to the fact that the prosecutor isn't aggressively prosecuting violent criminals

By the way, in 2016 90% of Philadelphia's murders were committed with guns. In 2021, that number fell to 85% of murders were committed with guns. Again, this is not a gun problem, this is a violent criminal problem. Violent criminals need to be locked up and removed from society

I’m confused on what I think (that’s pretty trippy in itself) OR you don’t know how to read.

I didn’t say there was a lack of gun laws, I asked why the gun culture is different from 20 years ago yet the laws are basically the same.

The rest of your post is opinion, not fact
