As the manhunt for suspects in a mass shooting that left at least three people dead and 11 others injured in a famous downtown entertainment district continues. Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner sought to blame NRA gun advocates on Sunday.

“The awful atrocities on South Street last night tell our Pennsylvania legislators it’s time for serious action,” said Krasner. A progressive Democrat was elected in 2017. “Boycott NRA lobbyists and donations, and bring sensible gun legislation to Pennsylvania. Now.”

The statements come as Philadelphia is on track to break last year’s murder record.

Joe Sullivan quickly chastised Krasner for failing to mention more aggressive and focused prosecutions of gun-related crimes. Particularly for repeat violent offenders and convicted felons, while the district attorney instead attacked an advocacy group such as the NRA for legal gun ownership.
