A Violation of Pennsylvania Law by Philadelphia
http://www.examiner.com/article/philly-da-purposely-turns-blind-eye-to-gun-crime-tip ^

From the Philly Post:

Last weekend, Philadelphia’s Department of Licenses and Inspections, an agency not usually known for its transparency and user-friendliness, unveiled a new web app that displays licensing, permit and violation information on a (relatively) easy-to-use interactive map. One of the more interesting aspects to this new data transparency is an array of gun permit appeals, essentially a list of Philadelphians who have been denied a gun permit or had their permit revoked and who have appealed to have the decision overturned.

This is completely illegal, and there are penalties. Allow me to point you to the Uniform Firearms Act of Pennsylvania, and the Pennsylvania Code. From the UFA:

(i) Confidentiality.–All information provided by the potential purchaser, transferee or applicant, including, but not limited to, the potential purchaser, transferee or applicant’s name or identity, furnished by a potential purchaser or transferee under this section or any applicant for a license to carry a firearm as provided by section 6109 shall be confidential and not subject to public disclosure. In addition to any other sanction or penalty imposed by this chapter, any person, licensed dealer, State or local governmental agency or department that violates this subsection shall be liable in civil damages in the amount of $1,000 per occurrence or three times the actual damages incurred as a result of the violation, whichever is greater, as well as reasonable attorney fees.

If I were one of these people listed, I’d be filing the lawsuit right now. This is unconscionable. The criminals that run that city clearly think they are above the law. I say we ought to show them who can get away with what. I count at least $29,000 dollars worth of violations here, and attorneys fees will probably drive that higher by orders of magnitude. They should be made to pay for this.

And Philly is mostly Democrat.

In Philadelphia? Absolutely. They are. Seriously.

In my early school days I still remember studying Tammany Hall and the teacher saying: “no matter how corrupt the city machines in such places as Chicago, NYC, Detroit, etc, were, they could all point to Philadelphia and say “at least we aren’t that bad.”

Philly has been beyond corrupt as far back as I can remember, and I remember Rizzo & Street.
And, AFAIK, Philly is the only U.S. city to drop a bomb on it’s own citizens and burn down several blocks while holding the fire department back from combating the flames

Well, they went one better than MOVE here Texas, when they pumped in nerve gas banned by the Geneva Convention (CN-Gas) into a building for 6 hours before burning it down on national TV.

Granted, that wasn't the city of Waco doing it, but we do things BIGGER here in Texas.
