9 shot, 3 dead in 12 hours in Philly

Posted: Wednesday, March 12, 2014, 11:56 AM

Philadelphia experienced a brutal 12-hour period from yesterday afternoon to today's early-morning hours in which nine people were shot - three of whom were killed - bringing the city's murder tally to 52 this year.

Last week, I wrote this piece on how we've already had more murders in Philadelphia this year than in all of New York City, which has 6.8 million more people. At this rate, I don't even want summer to come because it always means more dead bodies, more broken hearts and more families asking "Why?" when there is no reason. It's all so damn senseless.

Here's a chronological breakdown, in reverse order, of the senseless violence that occurred between 3:54 p.m. yesterday and 3:06 a.m. this morning, according to police.

-3:06 a.m. Wednesday: A man tried to enter the Marmeliz Bar on Wyoming Avenue near C Street in Feltonville and was denied entry by a bar employee. The two fought and the man fired three shots at the employee before fleeing on foot. The 29-year-old employee was struck twice in the back and is listed in critical condition at Temple University Hospital. A 26-year-old man who was leaving the bar at the time was also struck once in the left leg by the gunfire. He's listed in stable condition at Albert Einstein Medical Center.

-11:50 p.m. Tuesday: A 20-year-old man is shot in his right leg....

And the media ignores the black-on-black violence because there’s no race angle to exploit and bash whites with.

Wow!

I guess if American citizens didn’t have the right to own guns this would never have happened. (Sarcasm)

Philadelphia is a $hithole.

And a big part of the problem is “Little Philly” a/k/a Camden. They have tried so hard to revitalize the water front down there, but I’m afraid to even drive through there in the daylight.

One trip, during the day with my son’s Scout Troop to the USS New Jersey, we got detoured and ended up in a place you can only imagine and you’d be right. I actually ran a red light to get out of the neighborhood and back onto the interstate.

A TOTAL dump.....

I didn’t see any race listed. In fact, the Adrian could be anything really. I thought the guys that wanted to get into the bar could have been anything really.

NYC has had fewer than 52 murders this year?

Well one reason is because stopping it is racist.

Huh. That is the usual average for military combat gunshot wounds. One dead for every 3 wounded. I guess Philly really is a combat zone.

So of course the city fathers will step up efforts to take guns from honest, non-violent individuals and deliberately leave them in the hands of violent criminals.

THAT is exactly why they ignore it. (Sorry, your post's sentiment just needed to be repeated)

Holder’s People don’t care about the unemployment; it’s been 100% in their families for generations.

Holders people are unaffected by unemployment, they are generations deep in being provided for by the working class.

Used to be that Filthadelphia had a law that banned concealed carry with a PA permit. Courts threw that out. Don't know if they have any city specific laws but I don't think so.

The city of "brothers are thugs" is at the opposite side of the state from me.We'd give it to NJ if I had any say.

Does Philadelphia have any say over issuing permits, or is it all handled by the state?

Philadelphia is not in Pennsylvania, just ask them.

Oh, except for when it comes to check day. Then, yeah, sure, they’re in Pennsylvania. They suck up double their share of state revenue.

Under state law it is the only place that open carry is actually banned.

"Why?" when there is no reason. It's all so damn senseless

NO, it's not so damn senseless you blithering fool.The Allegheny County police admitted 2 months ago that over 80% of homicides in Allegheny county were drug related.

Why should I give a good goddamn if a couple of thugs kill each other over drugs?

The truth about shootings and what caused them needs to get out there. Simpering jackass reporters that decry "GUN VIOLENCE" need to have their noses rubbed in the truth. I'm tired of hearing that my guns need to be taken away because two gangsters shoot each other over a bad drug deal, drug debt, or drug territory.

Nope. You're wrong. No gun control laws. Shall issue state. Fill out the application that you can download from the county sheriffs web site, pay $20.00 and you have your permit. Walk into any gun store, pass the NICS check and take whatever your heart desires home with you. No restrictions.

If Pa & Texas reciprocate gun permits, bring your gun with you.

In that case they need some strict gun control laws like Chicago to prevent these senseless crimes from happening again. /s

Forgot PA believed in freedom. Here is CT it is a eeeevil NRA approved safety course, and four separate certified checks for $150 to get a temporary permit, which lets you get the actual permit needed to carry, for another $70.
