The solution to Baltimore’s milestone homicides? Sue gun manufacturers!

No one is responsible for their personal actions except for the law-abiding people demorats want to control: Gun manufacturers and firearm owners.

Demorats NEVER, NEVER let facts get in the way of reaching their utopian goals.

According to the Baltimore Sun’s report on November 14, the demorat-run city (which hasn’t had a republican mayor since 1967) has hit 300 homicides for the fifth year in a row.

Baltimore Police Commissioner Michael Harrison said that to address the “culture of violence” in Baltimore, there must be programs offering young men a path away from a life of crime.

Apparently former mayor Catherine Pugh’s “Squeegee Boys” program wasn’t the correct pathway.

So what is the progressive politicians’ solution to the out-of-control gun violence in their city? Lawsuits against gun manufacturers.

WBAL TV reports that the city of Baltimore is seriously considering following the lead of Sandy Hook families and suing gun manufacturers. From their report:

“City Solicitor Andre Davis said that escalating violence is why he will legally go after gun manufacturers to hold them responsible if Sandy Hook families succeed in their cases, he said.

“That decision by the court of appeals a couple of weeks ago was a breakthrough because congress has created immunity for these gun manufacturers that, up until now, has been impenetrable and this recent decision is the first small crack in the wall and we will continue to monitor it,” Davis said.”

The “crack in the wall” is Baltimore’s leadership, gang violence and prosecution of violent criminals, which republican governor Larry Hogan wants to address.

But that, of course, is deemed racist by progressives.

Enjoy your record homicide rates, Baltimore!

Suing gun manufacturers for the actions of your criminal citizens will have absolute ZERO effect on murder rates and gun violence. You CANNOT legislate and sue enough people to ensure that CRIMINALS will obey gun control laws. THEY DON’T CARE about your laws.

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.”
