More than a dozen Philadelphia and state leaders came together on Wednesday to address the "ongoing gun violence crisis" in Philadelphia as the city nears 500 murders on the year.
According to the latest data from the Philadelphia Police Department, the city currently sits at 499 homicides in 2021 which is a rise of 13 percent from this point last year. The tragic rise in deadly violence has included children, teens and a meaningful jump in crimes against women.
Kenney, a Democrat, called for tighter gun laws to combat the scourge of gun deaths and crimes. The second-term mayor said the Philadelphia Police Department is expected to remove over 6,000 crime guns this year; a 40% increase in two year

I agree, we deserve better.
I bet our blacks can get to 600 next year...
Philadelphia leaders deserve to be held extremely accountable for their policies.
What you deserve are the fruits of the government you elected.
_____(FILL IN THE BLANK)______, a Democrat, called for tighter gun laws to combat the scourge of gun deaths and crimes.......................
Philadelphia has a “violent crime” crisis. If politicians wanted to solve it, they’d forget the word “gun” and focus on the willful perpetrators.
Notice the indirect, “gun crime”.
Or “a car drove through a parade”.
Never admit that a person was actually driving the car, or holding a gun while committing a crime.
Vote for the blue rats again and again, defund the police, no bails, you get what you want…
*** Philly Metro Ping ***
These stupid idiots voted for a progressive DA over a law and order candidate.
this is expected
actively cause increased crime
call for more gun control
how long before gun violence is declared a public health crisis?
I love the new useless political slogans
“We Deserve Better”
“This is not who we are”
“We need to re-imagine public safety”
Same ole, same ole.
What good are stricter gun laws when the guns used in the murders are illegally obtained/purchased, and the police are 8ncapable of enforcing the laws because they are being defunded?
You will not get any better until you stop voting democrat.
No, you don’t deserve better. You caused this, you and the media and the race baiters and everyone else who used race as a political whipping post.
Where’s Matthew Payne when you need him?
Oh...... he is real Philadelphian, white, educated, superior. He is neither black or queer and thus shunned as a police officer
Not as long as you keep focusing on guns and deliberately ignore the real problem, you don't.
Well actually because you dumbasses keep voting Democrat/communist no you don’t “deserve better,” that just what other Democrat/communists say get your stupid ash vote.
Yeah, right. Guns are causing all the violence. The people pulling the trigger are not to blame.
