When journalists asked Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenney to discuss the violence, he had plenty to state. He began by stating that the United States is a “gun nation” and blamed the Second Amendment and the Supreme Court for all of these issues. He then went on to wistfully state a current journey he made to Canada where he didn’t even consider the issues of weapon violence.
When was the last time a concealed-carry license holder shot a police officer?
Mayor Jim Kenney: “It was a laid back, chill day — weather was beautiful, concert was beautiful, but we live in America, and we have the Second Amendment, and we have the Supreme Court telling everybody they can carry a gun wherever they want.”
The Supreme Court ruled versus New York’s weapon law that consisted of stringent guidelines for hidden bring in the state. Prior to this judgment, the state might choose who it wished to have this right and who it didn’t.
Democrats raged with the Supreme Court for siding with the American people and their right to self-defense.
Kenney also said this on tonight's shooting: "It was a laid back, chill day — weather was beautiful, concert was beautiful, but we live in America, and we have the Second Amendment, and we have the [Supreme Court] telling everybody they can carry a gun wherever they want" pic.twitter.com/TnoAWRYCuH

Jim Kenney entered into office in Philadelphia guaranteeing to clear the prisons and defund the cops. He rapidly designated a Police Chief (with the paradoxical surname of “Outlaw”) who supported those very same objectives.
As anybody with sound judgment God provided a goat might have forecasted, criminal activity started increasing practically right away and has actually continued to do so. Shootings are much more typical than they utilized to be. This has actually resulted in a flood of applications for weapon allows as residents look for to safeguard themselves because the authorities will not or can’t. This is especially typical amongst ladies.
Philadelphia has actually long been a one-party city, these things do not work since they are techniques without the advantage of a technique.
With that in mind, it is painfully evident that the only technique that might perhaps assist Philly is for Jim Kenney to do the ideal thing … which is to resign.
