A mass shooting took place in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania on Saturday night that left 3 people dead and 11 wounded.
Philadelphia Democrat District Attorney Larry Krasner honestly does not believe in prosecuting many crimes because he’s a believer in so-called “progressive criminal justice reforms,” which means for past perceived injustices in the system you make up for them by letting criminals go free so they can harm even more innocent victims. That’s not how far left prosecutors like Krasner will say it, but that’s the result of their insane ideologically based policies.
With a record of doing everything possible to go easy on criminals in the city, Krasner has not taken any blame for the crime rate in the city going up, least of all for the deadly shootings that just took place. No, this pinhead is blaming the National Rifle Association (NRA), a Second Amendment advocate organization that hasn’t ever shot anyone and hasn’t ever let criminals out of jail almost as soon as the police bring them in.
This worthless, pathetic Soros-supported prosecutor took to social media to blame the NRA and to call for people to boycott the organization.
“The terrible crimes last night on South Street tell our Pennsylvania legislators it’s time for real action. Boycott NRA lobbyists, boycott NRA donations, and bring real common sense gun regulation to Pennsylvania. Now.”

In spite of Krasner’s bullschtein, there’s no evidence whatsoever showing that the NRA was involved in Saturday night’s shooting. But it doesn’t matter for progressives. They will politicize anything because, to them, e-v-e-r-veryy-t-h-i-n-g is political.
At this point in our history, progressive politicians don’t even need talking points to know how to participate in the national schemes they play out. Krasner, like most Democrats after the Buffalo and then Uvalde mass shootings, is playing his role in death-by-a-thousand-lies on gun control in order to disarm America because Democrats are the same tyrants who locked us all down for two years and harmed our children throughout the pandemic with first virtual learning, then wearing masks for 8 hours a day, every day in classrooms. These people want to control America with a tight fist like any dictator from history, and like all totalitarian countries, they were able to take over by first disarming their people.
Philadelphia police commissioner Danielle Outlaw said during a press conference on Sunday that officials investigating the shooting incident believe that an altercation between a small group of men set off the shooting, according to KYW-TV. One of the people involved in the altercation was shot fatally, and the other two who were killed were simply innocent bystanders.
I am willing to bet right now that at the very least, one of the men who was involved in the shooting was given lenient treatment for a crime he committed under Larry Krasner’s watch. That speculation is much more sound than Krasner blaming the NRA for the shooting.
A witness took video of the shooting that includes men who are armed getting into the altercation on the street. The video substantiates what police investigators think happened.

Democrat Mayor Jim Kenney, rightly so, appeared to call out Krasner’s prosecutorial policies.
“It’s gotten to the point where there’s no price to pay for carrying illegal guns, so people carry them because they don’t think anything is going to happen,” Kenney said after the shooting.
This is how cities go bad. Progressive Democrats get elected to positions of power that allow them to abuse the office they hold and completely disrupt the system because they’re on some crusade to get a legacy of fighting for a progressive tomorrow, and the safety of the population during the process be damned.
In March last year, the Philadelphia Inquirer, which when I lived in Philly 35 years ago used to call it The People’s Republic of Philadelphia Inquirer, even it found that police in the City of Brotherly Love were setting records for the number of arrests for people who are illegally carrying firearms. At the same time, convictions for those crimes have dropped to extreme lows.
“If there’s nothing to deter folks, if there’s no consequence where people believe, ‘If I do this, this is going to happen,’ [then] there’s no incentive to not carry a gun illegally, quite frankly,” Outlaw said last year.
So, we have the DA of Philadelphia blaming an organization that fights to defend citizens’ right to keep and bear arms to protect themselves against the animals that Krasner is not prosecuting for gun crimes.
For goodness’ sake, in January this year, the Inquirer reported that the Philadelphia DA’s office said, “We do not believe that arresting people and convicting them for illegal gun possession is a viable strategy to reduce shootings.”
Are you kidding me?!?! So, putting criminals that use guns during the commission of a crime being locked away in prison does not reduce shootings? In what fantasy world does that happen? The thing is, progressive prosecutors don’t want to put people in jail for illegal gun possession. Do it a few times and it would send a message that the city is no longer going to be tolerant of such crimes. But Soros-funded DA’s don’t really care about stopping violent crime. For them, the crusade is about bringing down the system from the inside.
The NRA took to social media to respond to the reprobate Krasner’s accusatory tweet pointing out that progressive DA’s who meld their radical leftist ideology into their office’s policies are causing their cities to see major increases in violent crimes.
The NRA responded late Sunday, charging that Krasner’s lenient policies, all in the name of “criminal justice reform,” are contributing to out-of-control violent crime.
“Philadelphia has been awash in crime for years as a result of your ineptitude and loyalty to your benefactor, @GeorgeSoros, who supports weak DAs who pledge not to prosecute violent criminals and release them almost immediately as law enforcement arrests these violent felons.”

Larry Krasner needs to go for the safety of the people of Philadelphia. They need to get someone to replace him who will prosecute violent criminals who use guns.
