A reminder that Democrats do not care about stopping crime

Via Hot Air

There are still more people dying in Baltimore from gunshot wounds than the coronavirus pandemic, a trend that “social distancing” hasn’t slowed down very much. It’s gotten so bad that the mayor felt compelled to beg the gangs to stop shooting people so they can save hospital beds for the COVID-19 patients. That’s why it seemed vital for the state legislature to finally push through some tough new gun crime laws designed to get some of these shooters behind bars and keep them there.

Unfortunately for the residents of Maryland, Democrats in the legislature didn’t see it that way. The recent package of bills intended to reduce gun violence was once again rejected. (Free Beacon)

Maryland Democrats rejected a bill aimed at combating gun violence as Baltimore mayor Jack Young publicly begged residents to stop shooting each other so hospitals could be used to treat coronavirus patients…

[Governor Larry] Hogan’s Violent Firearms Offenders Act would make the theft of a firearm a felony and increase penalties for those who repeatedly carry illegal guns or use a gun while drug dealing. The bill passed the state Senate on March 10 following a contentious back-and-forth between lawmakers. Democrats successfully removed the legislation’s mandatory minimum sentencing increase, arguing it would punish violent criminals too severely.

Odd? No, sadly Virginia Democrats buried legislation that would have gotten tougher on violent criminals at the same time they were pushing to take legal gun owners firearms away. Priorities!

  1. Yup, I would definitely pay for this type of repetitive then disjointed blog entries…no just kidding…maybe if you repeated the part about begging residents to stop shooting each other so there would be enough hosptial beds one more time that would make the piece better? Or after an article about MD, don’t just kind of randomly introduce the activities of one state, but four or five other states! That would make lots of sense…Yup, you should see my contribution in support of this fine content any time now…
