    This guy had better be a better magician than Chris Angel! Either that or have connections with God himself! Cause it'll take a frickin miracle.

    My money says he is so anti-gun he makes Feinstein look like Heston.

    I could be wrong though.

    Thanks!

    He HAS to be better than John "wrong-way" Street......but, of course, that's not saying much.
    He does seem to be very intelligent.....but very liberal. This may make him more dangerous. He can finesse where Street tried (unsuccessfully, for the most part) to bully.
    He's got "anti-gun" written all over him.
    His choice of Ramsey (from D.C.) as Police Commissioner also indicates that the emphasis of the Nutter Administration will lean much more heavily on "gun control" instead of effective "thug-control."

    My cynical self thinks that the transfer from street to nutter is simply exchanging one group of people robbing the city's taxpayers blind and abusing the publc trust to another.

    I do notice that there is a significantly higher police presence in the city, and they are pulling over people at a higher rate than I am used to seeing. (I drove all over phila every day from one end to another in the course of my job)

    hardly scientific, mind you but something my coworkers have also noticed.

    I will also point out that the media and many of the people in that town seem to think Nutter's taking over is tantamount to the second coming of christ. They really believe this guy will change the world.

    Unfortunately phila people seem to not realize that change begins at home and that if you're not going to clean up after yourself and your neighborhood and make sure your kids go to school and stay out of trouble, the govt can only do so much- and likely that is very little indeed. They would rather hope that the city will solve all their problems for them, and that is just an unrealistic hope.

    I like him better than Street, but that's like saying, "I like Chlamydia better than Gohnorrea".

    :freak: Ain't NEVER going to happen.

    Philadelphia is doomed! The social cancer is too deep and down to the bone. Except for: higher welfare checks, bigger and better prisons, and even more free public medical care - Provided by the same damned fools who used to own Social Security - absolutely nothing is going to change for the better in, 'The City of Brotherly Love' until AFTER the Second Coming of Christ.

    Philadelphia is doomed! If the rest of Pennsylvania wants to save itself from this malignant social cancer, everybody else should band together and dig a large moat around the city, thereby cutting off all the: venal socialist politicians, corrupt lawyers, welfare recipients, and repeat habitual offenders from the bulk of Pennsylvania's normal, hardworking, and law-abiding society.

    The sooner the rest of Pennsylvania wakes up and isolates Philadelphia from the remainder of the state, the better it's going to be for the majority of those who are left. Philadelphia is doomed! :thumbsup:

    Interesting reply. Now I think you have to admit a moat ain't going to happen, but seriously, what IS the answer??

    The answer has to come from OUTSIDE Philly for the reasons you stated above (corruption, low lifes, etc.)...possibly the national guard for a few months? Again, I'm just throwing that out there although it seems like it would be an absolute last resort...

    Are you serious? The last thing you want is the Nation Guard or any other military entity patrolling the streets of any city in this county. Katrina should be warning enough.

    The former mayor of philly is now the Governor of Pennsylvania. He is a gun grabbing fool and is constantly trying to get philly premption to make their own gun laws. Fortunately they are routinely denied that ability. One of the first things they would do is eliminate concealed carry in the city...because you know those CCW's are the cause of all the real killing going on right?

    Hell if I couldn't carry in Philly I don't think I would ever go into the city.

    That is how I feel. I hate going to Philly...and I have enough guns/ammo/gear to choke a horse!

    I truely believe that this is a problem of the mind. It's ingrained into a specific culture. If it's more comfortable for you to call it "Philly Culture" so be it. But until you change values, methods of handling things (law/legislat.), and can start fresh, the situation really can only get worse..MUCH worse. I would go so far as to say we will see this mutation of a city evolve to engulf surrounding areas until either the citizens take it upon themselves to flush the gov. down the toilet and stand up against the scum or the gov. steps in and does some not so nice things (that very well could punish the innocent) in order to restore order (check points, door to door searches, remote/huge prisons, etc).

    But as the replies to this thread show. Not a whole lot of faith is being put into this Mayor. I'm wondering what it'll take...so back to the thoughts...

    Thanks!

    Yup. Heard on the radio coming home this afternoon that Hizzoner is going to enact strict gun control laws on his own, without the approval of the courts or Harrisburg.
    Let me guess, no one will be allowed to conceal/carry? That'll clean up the mess in Philly. Let's make the city a "gun-free" zone. (just a wild guess on my part)
    I will never understand how some of these politicians openly disregard the laws and constitution of the Commonwealth. Won't someone please hold them accountable?
    Thank God for reps such as Clymer and Roher.

    I understand that the radio station at 1210 on the am band is going to give Ramsey and D.A. Lynn Abraham their own talk shows. I think they're going to be a once-a-month deal.....not unlike the city administrations hope for firearm sales. Even Abraham is against CCW.
    Anyway, the station has been promoting the Ramsey show with him saying that if it were up to him, there would be no concealed handguns at all.

    This is what we have to look forward to with Ramsey, Nutter, and Rendell.
