Philly DA: Carry a gun without a license and stay in jail

Friends of Philadelphia District Attorney R. Seth Williams just posted this to Facebook Page:

Please let everyone know that if you carry a gun in Philadelphia without a license to carry and are arrested the District Attorney will ask for cash bail and you will remain in jail until your trial. We are replicating this program from St. Louis, where it is credited with reducing homicides by 20%. We implemented it here at the end of January and 70% of those carrying illegal guns have remained behind bars awaiting trial.
