District Attorney Larry Krasner called for gun control on the national level following a mass shooting that left three people dead and 11 other wounded in Philadelphia Saturday evening but he was quickly reminded that it is his office who has deprioritized going after criminals using firearms.

"Boycott NRA lobbyists, boycott NRA donations, and bring real common sense gun regulation to Pennsylvania. Now," Krasner tweeted on Sunday. He also called for more funds to go towards new crime lab.

Users on Twitter pointed out how Krasner does not aggressively follow through on criminals who are arrested for gun-related crimes.
