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.
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.
