NRA News is calling out Mayor Street over this interesting assertion:
Why so much violence?Â According to Mayor Street, it’s Iraq’s fault.Â Street told the Philadelphia Daily News, “I believe the fact that we are a country at war has something to do with the attitude of people in the streets.”Â He went on to explain that the Iraq war is a “contributing factor” in the increase in gun violence and homicides.
The original article can be found here. Â Now this is just getting ridiculous.Â How far is John Street willing to go to deflect blame from his poor management of the city to other people?Â It’s bad enough when he blames lawful gun owners for the violence in Philadelphia, but blaming the war in Iraq is a new, laughable low.
Get real John.Â Thank God for term limits.Â That’s all I have to say.
