With 650 Shootings And 215 Murders So Far This Year, Baltimore Politicians Seek To Ban ... Fake Guns

posted on September 21, 2016

So far in 2016, Baltimore has had at least 650 shootings and 216 murders. Because Maryland already has some of the strictest anti-gun laws in the nation, the Baltimore City Council is now setting its sights on banning the sale of replica and toy guns, the Baltimore Sun reports.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake—who during last year’s riots said she “gave those who wished to destroy space to do that”—made it clear she wants to blame the sellers of fake guns, not those who alter and misuse them, for the crime and bloodshed that sometimes results. As her spokesman said, she wants any legislation passed by the city council to hold “manufacturers and those who are responsible for the point of sale accountable, and not families and especially our children.” 

When existing gun laws have had no effect on violence in a city proudly dubbed “Bodymore, Murdaland,” by its criminals, don’t bother asking how a toy gun ban is supposed to slow down the carnage.
