More calls for gun control after Philadelphia standoff with police but this man was a convicted felon. What specific laws could have stopped him since he was apparently undeterred by laws we currently have – confiscation, ending all gun sales, tougher sentencing laws? Give us some specifics – what laws should be passed Mayor Kenny?
“Our officers deserve to be protected and they don’t deserve to be shot at by a guy for hours with an unlimited supply of weapons and an unlimited supply of bullets. It’s disgusting and we have to do something about it,” Mayor Jim Kenney told reporters.
Police sources identified the gunman in a standoff at a Tioga apartment building that left six police officers injured as Maurice Hill, 36, a Philadelphia man with a lengthy history of gun convictions and of resisting attempts to bring him to justice.
