Gun-controlled Baltimore has one of its most violent weekends: 17 shot, including 2-year-old

The Baltimore Sun reports that this past weekend, 17 people were shot — four of them fatally —one of its most brutal weekends on record. This includes a two-year-old boy who was shot in the stomach during a “road rage” incident.

More from the Sun:

“The violent crime is “sad and incredible sickening,” Republican Gov. Larry Hogan said, “especially when innocent children are caught in the middle.”

“As I have said repeatedly, enough is enough,” Hogan said in a statement. “We will continue working closely with city leaders and urging members of the legislature to do more to get these repeat violent offenders off our streets.”

A spokesman for Democratic Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young did not respond to a request for comment.

City Council President Brandon Scott, a Democrat who is running for mayor, called the weekend’s bloodshed “unacceptable” and said he intends to increase pressure on Baltimore police and Commissioner Michael Harrison to address the violence.

“We have to start to push a little harder on how they’re dealing with the violence day to day,” he said.

Harrison said in a statement that the men and women of the police department are focused on deterring violent crime in Baltimore.

“Prior to this weekend, as I mentioned to the City Council last week, I was encouraged by the overall trends in homicides and shootings over the past several weeks,” he said. “I think we all recognize that the issues driving spikes in violence must be addressed by a wide range of people and organizations, not just the police department, in order to make Baltimore the city we all want it to be.”

And yet every 2020 Democrat candidate wants more gun control. “I’ve made up my mind. Don’t confuse me with facts!”

Can we interpret this to mean may be, they will begin to start focusing more on criminals than on firearms? I kinda doubt it.

May he gets a boost into the cosmos, fly away and fade into the infinite. After the hoopla who’s going to remember?
