As violence increases in demorat-run Philadelphia, leaders want residents to turn in their guns

I’m sure the criminals will get right on that request…

Shocker, not: We’ve got another demorat-run city that is experiencing an increase in crime. CBS Philly reports that 259 people have been murdered so far this year, a 31% increase from this time last year.

The city council held an emergency meeting last week to come up with solutions. Here’s one of them:

Do these fools really believe that criminals are going to comply with this request?

The city’s Soros-backed district attorney, Larry Krasner, has been lenient with criminals and is a proponent of bail reform. At least he was until last week but now he’s apparently had a change of heart. From the CBS Philly story:

“Krasner was the first to address the City Council’s Special Committee on Gun Violence and even got emotional during the hearing when talking about 7-year-old Zamar Jones, who was killed during gun crossfire in West Philadelphia.

Krasner says his office is pushing for higher bail on those linked to gun crimes. “What my office is seeing is that bails are too low and often too low on cases that involve shootings, on cases involving felons in possession of firearms,” he said.”

Seven-year-old Zamar Jones was shot in the head while playing on his front porch. He later died.

Too little, too late for Zamar Jones, Mr. Krasner.

When are democrat voters going to realize the obvious?

Celebrating sanctuary status now, Mayor Kenney? ICE arrests child sexual predator in Philadelphia after he was freed twice by local authorities

Remember in 2018 when Philadelphia Mayor Jim Kenny (demorat) was videotaped dancing to celebrate their “sanctuary city win?”

I wonder if the good mayor is celebrating the sexual abuse of children after an illegal alien was released by his city police due to HIS sanctuary-approved policy?

From an ICE press release dated November 27:

“U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) arrested unlawfully present Guatemalan national for sexual abuse against children after he was released from police custody. This was the second time Philadelphia Police Department released this sexual predator onto the streets, despite an ICE detainer lodged against him in both cases.

Hector Moran-Espinoza was arrested April 2, by the Philadelphia Police Department for involuntary deviate sexual intercourse by forcible compulsion, unlawful contact with a minor-sexual offenses, statuary sexual assault, endangering the welfare of children-parent or guardian commits offense, corruption of minors, indecent assault-without the consent of other person, reckless endangerment of another person, rape by forceable compulsion, sexual abuse of children-photographing, videotaping, depicting on a computer or filming sexual acts, and aggravated indecent assault without consent.

May 9, Moran was again arrested by the Philadelphia Police Department for unlawful contact with a minor-sexual offenses, corruption of minors, indecent assault of a person under 13 years of age, reckless endangerment of another person, and endangering the welfare of a child-parent or guardian commits offense.

In both cases, ICE’s Philadelphia Enforcement and Removal Operations (ERO) lodged an immigration detainer on Moran the same day of the arrest, and each time Philadelphia Police Department did not honor this detainer and released this predator onto the streets.

“We are seeing politicians put their political agendas above the safety of the citizens they serve,” said ICE Philadelphia Field Office Director Simona Flores-Lund. “The victims in this case are young children, whose lives are now forever changed. This monster was released not once, but twice, without notifying ICE. We are committed to strengthening our relationship with local law enforcement, as we want nothing more than to keep our communities safe.”

By releasing a criminal with multiple offenses, the Philadelphia Police Department is putting their city at risk by letting this individual roam free to potentially harm the most vulnerable, our children.

After Philadelphia Police shootout, demorats call for more gun control. How about stricter penalties for prohibited possessors and better enforcement?

Facts are a stubborn thing for progressives. Always have been, always will be.

Demorats starting demanding more gun control after the shootout with Philadelphia Police on Wednesday. In some cases, demorats even called for more gun control while the situation was unfolding.

Demorat presidential candidates Kamala Harris, Cory Booker, Beto O’Rourke and Amy Klobuchar took to Twitter to express their outrage pander to voters:

Kamala Harris: “We can’t sit around waiting for others to take action on gun violence. Doing nothing is not an option.”

Pancho Beto: “Thinking of Philadelphia, and everyone impacted by this gun violence epidemic we need to end.”

Amy Klobuchar: “Another tragic shooting. This time in Philadelphia. We have to end this scourge of gun violence.”

Turns out the shooter was a violent, drug-dealing convicted felon, meaning he wasn’t legally allowed to possess firearms. But he’s a criminal, so did you really expect him to follow the law?

According to NBC Philadelphia, the 36-year-old shooter has a lengthy criminal record that included firearms charges. Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner said that “he never should have been on the streets.”

And therein lies the problem with demanding more gun control laws while not adequately punishing prohibited possessors.

A report published by the US Sentencing Commission on June 27, 2019 entitled, “Recidivism Among Federal Firearms Offenders” shows that the problem lies in the criminal justice system and progressives’ demand for “criminal justice reform.”

Key findings from their report:

The 3,446 firearms offenders analyzed in this report represent 13.8 percent of the 25,000 offenders in this study who were released in calendar year 2005.

Firearms offenders recidivated at a higher rate than non-firearms offenders. Over two-thirds (68.1%) of firearms offenders were rearrested for a new crime during the eight-year follow-up period compared to less than half of non-firearms offenders (46.3%).

Firearms offenders recidivated more quickly than non-firearms offenders. Of the firearms offenders who recidivated, the median time from release to the first recidivism event was 17 months. Comparatively, the median time from release to the first recidivism event for non-firearms offenders was 22 months.

A greater percentage of firearms offenders were rearrested for serious crimes than non-firearms offenders.

Firearms offenders recidivated at a higher rate than non-firearms offenders in every age group at the time of release from custody.

Read the whole report here.

Maybe, just maybe, we could take a look at punishing firearm offenders more severely.

Also, could we enforce the current gun laws? See the following examples:

“145,000 people in NC whose criminal records should have kept them from buying a gun weren’t even added to the background check database till Dec 2018. And there’s no way to know how many of them bought guns.”

“Out of 112,000 fraudulent 4473s only 12 were prosecuted in 2017.”

“Gun laws that cost millions had little effect because they weren’t enforced

I know these facts will mean absolutely nothing to demorats. Gun grabbers prefer to operate with their emotions.
