# St. Louis Judge Jack Garvey Is Taking a Stand Against Gun Violence

Holy crap, it’s about time! City Judge Jack Garvey (not pictured) has decided that enough is enough with the gun-related violence in the city and is doing what he can to stop it. Specficially, he’s taking every gun-related case that comes through his courtroom and multiplying the standard bond by 10.

Judge Jack Garvey is now requiring suspects to post from $30,000 to$50,000 cash bond to be released until their case is heard.

Garvey was asked what kind of impact he hopes that will make.

“I don’t know,” Garvey admitted.  “I don’t know, but what we do know is that if there is one less person who’s off the street without a gun, there’s a better chance that people will be safer in the city.”

Way to go Judge Garvey! …what’s this?! Oh yeah, it’s happening…slow clap!

Ok, so the Cool Runnings slow clap is all I could find, but I think it gets the job done. If you could just mentally replace Doug E. Doug (Pictured…yeah, now you get it!) with Judge Garvey and then forget for a second your questions about why he’s carrying a bobsled, we think it might help.

Any chance Judge Garvey might feel like running for mayor?
