Philly is no better (arguably worse):
PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – It was another disturbing weekend of violence in the City of Brotherly Love, another weekend filled with gun violence. More than a dozen people have been shot since late Friday night, the gunfire erupting in nearly every pocket of Philadelphia, even on I-76.
Philadelphia Police have been very busy this weekend. There were 23 shootings within city limits so far, but no one has been arrested.
Philadelphia gun laws are among the strictest in the United States. Guns are deemed to be serious offenses in the City and County of Philadelphia. Prosecutors with millions of dollars of resources in prosecuting such cases every year have the help of experienced police officers and courts that often impose maximum sentences for gun offenses, even for first-time offenders.

it is every night on the news, every day, every weekend....
Gun violence in Philadelphia is so pervasive, every day feels like a mass shooting, according to a new study from Temple University.
Although shootings in the city are spread out across different neighborhoods and involve different people, the end result is still as heavy as a single mass shooting for the victims’ communities and the hospitals that treat the victims, the study found, according to The Philadelphia Inquirer
