    Crime blame game: The old ‘lax gun law’ excuse?

    Yesterday’s homicide body count in Baltimore reached 211, according to WBAL News, and during the course of the discussionMayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake was calling for tougher federal gun laws, though the report acknowledged that the city’s violence “surges on despite Maryland’s gun laws, some of the toughest in the country.”

    According to them, it is anything but the individual's fault. You would think that after nearly half a century of Democrat rule that the people that vote these oxygen thieves into office would have figured it out.

    Rawlings-Blake also acknowledged that “There are four major strands that are impacting the homicide rate in Baltimore. We can trace it and we can trace the players. There are known entities who are battling it out on the streets like is this is the wild, wild west, and we need help.” Still, she said, national gun control is necessary because of lax laws in other states"

    Always blame someone else or somewhere else rather than naming the elephant in the room.
