I live in a suburb just outside of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Over the past several years, the ammount of blackmarket weapons has significantly increased in the city of Philadelphia. Not only has the ammount of weapons increased, but so has the ammount of violence. The people purchasing these illegal weapons have used them to murder, and attempt to murder police officers, among many other victims. How can we, as a society, put our foot down and stop illegal gun traffic in our neighborhoods? The police work as hard as they can, but the weapons still hit the streets. What can we do?
