Quote of the day—Jim Kenney

This is a gun country, it’s crazy, we’re the most armed country in world history and we’re one of the least safest. Until Americans decide that they want to give up the guns, and give up the opportunity to get guns, we’re gonna have this problem. I’ll be happy when I’m not… mayor.

Philly Mayor Jim Kenney Says He’s So Sick of Guns He’ll Be ‘Happy’ to Not Be Mayor
[With that attitude toward a specific enumerated right, a lot of other people will be glad when he is not mayor too.—Joe]

  1. Funny thing is, we’re not only NOT the most armed (I’d wager that Switzerland, Afghanistan, and Somlia have us beat in that regard) but we’re also one of the safest, especially if you correct the statistics to account for shitholes like Philly.

  2. For the year 2020
    Population of Philadelphia: 1.6 million
    Population of Pennsylvania: 13 million
    Homicides in Philadelphia: 499
    Homicides in Pennsylvania: 1,009

    When gun laws are the same throughout the state, and your city accounts for 12% of the state population but nearly half of all homicides in the state, the problem isn’t guns. I live in the Philadelphia suburbs. I feel remarkably safe except when work forces me to go into certain parts of the city.

  3. Good comments all! That’s it exactly. Take out certain cities. And even neighborhoods in those cities. And murder/crime rate drop right out.
    On top of that if one could remove drugs and alcohol. Crime in this country would almost disappear.
