Philly shootout ends, mayor calls for gun control, ingrates assault cops


Philadelphia police officers were at the scene of an active shooter for hours while a dangerous criminal wounded six police officers. After the crowd began harassing and violently assaulting the police, three others were treated for non-gunshot wounds. The assault lasted eight hours.

The mayor called for gun control, not gang control

Criminals don’t follow the laws. This criminal in particular was arrested for being a felon in possession of a gun in 2007. He didn’t follow all those gun laws, and yesterday, he was a felon in possession of a gun again. Maybe judges and parole boards should follow the laws when one of these guys is caught.

Go after the gangs, not legitimate gun owners. This man has a long rap sheet of possession of illegal firearms, drug dealing, and attempted murders.

Why didn’t the officials take his guns away instead of those of legal gun owners?

The people police were there to protect assaulted the police:

Some normal people in Philly were grateful for the cops:

The shooting began when at 4:30 pm a police officer in the Nicetown-Tioga area of North Philly tried to serve a warrant for a narcotics arrest and encountered the shooter who fired on the officers.

The officers called for backup and additional officers arrived and exchanged fire with the shooter from behind cars.


One person was arrested. The Philadelphia shooter has been arrested about a dozen times since turning 18, and convicted six times on charges that involved illegal possession of guns, drug dealing, and aggravated assault.

Here he is surrendering:

The shooter’s name is Maurice Hill .  People on twitter claim it’s mistreatment to carry him off after what he did.

“When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns.”
Those are words of wisdom on a bumper sticker from the 70s. Criminals do not obey the law, that’s why they’re criminals. As this story notes, it is illegal for a felon to be in possession of a gun yet they have them. All anti gun laws proposed by Democrats attack the rights of law abiding citizens and make the terror of felons easier.
What we as Americans need to fear more than gun violence is a government that fears its citizens so works to take away our rights. Instead of restricting law abiding citizens why don’t they punish the criminals? Why are people known to be in gangs, have long criminal records and known to be illegally in our country, why are these people allowed to freely walk our streets? And why are these people protected by the Democrat politicians?
