    Not if law abiding citizens are allowed to carry a firearm. Please vote out of office every politician in this State that is for gun control and anti 2nd amendment . Common sense must prevail in this matter. The current laws are not working. Hear that Annapolis!

    1. Yup. Today’s fascist left can’t see it. The old saw applies, the stronger you tighten your grip, the more slips through your fingers.

  2. No surprise here look what we are dealing with! A corrupt Democratic city govt and ARMED HOODRATS that are roaming freely thru our city and a drug invested city so out of control it’s not to be believed!

  3. Here is the the topper on this, the city just spent $400,000 on ads for tourist to come see and spend their money in this crime and drug ridden city! Your doing a GREAT job DEMOCRATS! It’s what the LIBERALS do PRETEND everything is just fine! SMH FYI it’s a very dangerous city it’s NO SECRET and I’m sure the tourist are saying OH BOY the first place I want to go on vacation is BALTIMORE, YEAH RIGHT…

  4. Hey mayor don’t you think it’s time you STOPPED hiding out in your house?? WE the ENTIRE CITY REALLY know why you are hiding form the public eye, it’s not just your dragged out medical excuses. TOTAL lack of respect for the people and office you served which has left you with very little INTEGRITY if any and a WHOLE BOAT LOAD OF FALLOUT from your UNETHICAL ACTIONS while serving as MAYOR of this VERY BROKEN CITY!!!! Time for you to RESIGN!!

  5. So… per census data there were 970k residents in 1970, now down to 611k in 2017… why did the taxpayers flee? Who remains after they do? And what do the remnants contribute to society?
