Baltimore: Violence rages despite new gun laws.
2013-07-05
So here's how Baltimore's 10 days of gun violence from hell went: About 40 people shot, 16 of them fatally.

Baltimore police Commissioner Anthony W. Batts has decried the violence, as has Baltimore Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake. Several members of the Baltimore City Council have also weighed in. But, so far, there's been nothing but silence from the one group of politicians Baltimore citizens need to hear from.

That would be Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley, who was mayor of Baltimore before he was elected governor. And it would be nice to hear from members of Baltimore's delegation to the state Legislature.

#4  A lot of the laws passed don't go into effect until January, 2014, as I understand it.

#2  Smart Growth will end this urban crime wave. We must all move as quickly as possible. Take nothing with you, it will all be provided in Obamurbia.
