Roorda says there are plenty of gun laws; the problem is the St. Louis Metropolitan Police Department is grossly understaffed.

Roorda says they could disrupt the gun problem if they had more people. We need to enforce the laws on the books. On top of a lack of man power, St. Louis City Prosecutor Kim Gardner won’t prosecute the gun crimes. He also takes issue with body cameras. He notes that it’s insane to purchase body cameras when there’s a lack of funding for officers in general.
