(AP Photo/Elaine Thompson) Philadelphia’s 300th homicide of the year was recorded on Friday night , as the city’s crime wave shows no signs of abating. Homicides are up 42% compared to last year, which saw a near-record 499 homicides across the city. Shootings are up as well, with more than 1,200 reported in Philadelphia since January 1st.
Given the fact that violent crime is spiraling upward, it seems bizarre to claim that several gun “buybacks” hosted by the city are doing any good, but that’s exactly the take from local NPR affiliate WHYY, which claims that the gun turn-in events are working. Two more gun buybacks in Philadelphia are hoping to add to the over 500 guns already removed from the city streets. “The no-questions-asked event will take in working firearms,” says City Council President Darrell Clarke.”We’ve gotten a number of assault weapons.

They’re Trying to Shut Us Down
Over the last several months, I’ve lost count of how many times the powers-that-be have tried to shut us down. They’ve sent hackers at us, forcing us to take extreme measures on web security. They sent attorneys after us, but thankfully we’re not easily intimidated by baseless accusations or threats. They’ve even gone so far as to make physical threats. Those can actually be a bit worrisome but Remington has me covered.
For us to continue to deliver the truth that Americans need to read and hear, we ask you, our amazing audience, for financial assistance. We just launched a GiveSendGo page to help us pay the bills. It’s brand new so don’t be discouraged by the lack of donations there. It’s a funny reality that the fewer the donations that have been made, the less likely people are willing to donate to it. One would think this is counterintuitive, but sometimes people are skeptical because they think that perhaps there’s a reason others haven’t been donating. In our situation, we’re just getting started so please don’t be shy if you have the means to help.
Thank you and God bless!
