Look for "live vote" in lower right corner of page:

http://www.nbc10.com/index.html

Philadelphia's own DA has told the mayor and police commissioner both that the laws are unconstitutional, unenforceable, and illegal, and still they're attempting to convince the DA to prosecute, even though state law makes the laws illegal.

69% to 31% against enforcing illegal laws. Unbelievable

Hey, it isn't like that 31% has integrity, intelligence, or the ability to really think anything through.

HER guns... Lynn Abrahams is one of the toughest, nononsense DAs in the nation... stuck for the last 8 years with one of the worst mayors in the WORLD.

The new mayor, Nutter, is good but he is overstepping here, trying to play to the populace.

Check out the "web extra." It's a 16 minute interview with the Police Commissioner in Philly. Listening to him, he sounds like a delusional lap dog.

And crime. But he scores a big victory here. He can blame everyone else for the Violent Crime issues.

31% percent dumb. But it's nice to know 'informal' polls don't mention that there is even a conflict with the laws, or that they are just waiting to be struck down. Makes you wonder how 'formal' polls word their questions.

They should change the wording, "Should the Unconstitutional laws passed by the city council be enforced?"

Legal Realism at its finest: politicians lobbying to enforce illegal laws.
