Is Real Estate The Key To Gun Violence?

This thing is pages and pages, but I'll sum up the post briefly:

Gentrification combined with tougher VUFA sentencing is the solution to gun violence. Gentrification pushes much of the criminal class out of an area, while tougher sentencing on VUFA gives the more criminally-apt a much longer-temporary home away from the zones where they like to walk around illegally carrying. That boosts a "sense the area is getting safer" helping to reinforce gentrification, creating a cycle that eats away at bad neighborhoods turning them nicer. Inertia takes over at some point where everyone believes the neighborhood will be cleared out of negative shit on its own--so the rest of the hood's property gets snatched up on the expectation that prices will rise, and investors rehabilitate more of the neighborhood. Eventually, the cycles complete and you have an inner city neighborhood with very high home values and now you have another new area attractive to what most outsiders would accuse of being limousine liberals who want to move out of the suburbs.

Put the two together and you clear out neighborhoods of thugs, albeit slowly, but the permanence is much more noticeable. And I go into some concrete examples why that is.

All I'd like to say is Temple has been improving North Philly for decades, and a lot of local residents hate it. Granted they don't like the student parties, I think the pros outweigh the cons.

I don't know if this is happening in Philly but we in DaBurgh have had a interesting gentrification project going on for the past few years....

They are closing many of the housing projects here so that they can be torn down and rebuilt. In a way its like an automatic although temporary gentrification.

The result so far has been a mess. They have moved most of the residents of Northview Heights housing project out.... some have gone to other city projects but a LARGE number have been moved to outlying suburban communities with apartments and houses recently converted to section 8.

What we are seeing now are pockets of crime and criminal activity springing up in the areas where these people have moved to. They have been displacing the criminals into the suburbs and displacing the crime as well.

One of the funny things however is that these criminals are not use to the attention they get from suburban police nor the amount of resources that get applied in the suburbs to even relatively minor quality of life issues.

Many have said to us that they can't wait to go home where they are left alone. I pity anyone who lives in a large city.

Quote:Philadelphia Police Department’s Gun Permit Unit takes the maximum legal time of 45 calendar days, which is the only county in PA that does this.


DELCO took 52 days on my first LTCF, but just over 3 weeks on the renewal. First timers seem to take the full limit in DELCO, so it's not just Philly.

Quote:In actuality, PUFA already gives Philadelphia special and unique powers that no other county in the Commonwealth has. The biggest tool that PUFA has is the License to Carry a Firearm clause. You cannot carry a gun, concealed or otherwise, anywhere around Philadelphia without this license unless it’s been made safe and you’re transporting it to your home or to a range, which means it goes in the trunk of your car and it’s unloaded. Everywhere else in Pennsylvania, you do not require a license to carry a firearm (although most gun enthusiasts strongly suggest you obtain one anyway, in case you run into law enforcement who know nothing about this law).


The bolded seems a little unclear if you're talking about transporting or carry in general, in which case to carry concealed you most certainly do need a LTCF everywhere else in PA.

Quote:To get a LTCF, you must be clear of felonies. If you’re ex-military, you must have a discharge that shows you are free of mental defect. Law enforcement conducts an extensive computerized check on you, fingerprints you, takes your photograph, and registers you in a database that they keep around forever.


Fingerprints are not part of the process laid out by the state, only Philly, in my opinion illegally, requires fingerprints.

That's as far as I got.

Fuck those rising land prices and lower crime! Now they have to walk 2 blocks to buy heroin instead of 1. Seriously get 2 blocks or from the medical campus off broad and those are neighborhoods are ones I'd have to be in condition 0 in just to walk down the street in the daytime as a white dude to feel semi-comfortable.
