    all these Baltimoreans (the Tijuana of the East) getting shot in the arm gives me a real shot in the arm.

    It’s those Quakers. They just won’t stop their violent ways.

  4. Rick Strassel says:

    Just sprinkle some of that white liberal goodness on them. I’m sure that will change them.

  5. jodopeg says:

    Yeah, Well,, it’s Baltimore. Did anyone really expect there to be a “Cease-Fire”…?

  6. David Johnson says:

    The beyond arrogant left wingers will still have the unbridled audacity to say we just need stronger gun laws…then all the gang bangers will stop killing themselves and everyone else. They refuse to admit it is a people problem, because it is decades of THEIR POLICIES in NY, Chicago, Detroit, LA, and on and on, that have created these extremely violent gangs and ruined these cities. As usual, now these same people are trying to find a way to blame Republicans.

    They may as well have hung This is a Gun Free Zone on everyone’s backs for as much good as calling for a ceasefire worked.

  8. Henry says:

    What bureaucratic genius thought a Ceasefire Weekend declaration would be any more productive than a cardboard “no guns” sign? How long is it going to take for the mainstream media to give up the cheerleading and admit that Democrats don’t have the slightest idea what to do about violent crime? They still believe that making citizens defenseless will somehow make criminals harmless.
