Self-defeating Gun Arguments from the Media

The local wing media outlet, the Philadelphia Inquirer, has a long history of being anti-gun.  Their editorials and columnist are almost uniformly hostile to the civil rights of gun owners.  It's particularly enjoyable when their own news stories undercut their left wing arguments.  Today's Inqy includes an article on the rise in murders this year in Camden, NJ.  In the article (buried deep, of course) is a brief mention of the fact that Camden's murder rate is twice that of Philadelphia's.

So, riddle me this Inquirer: if guns are the problem and gun control is the solution, then why is Camden's murder rate twice that of Philadelphia's?
