    Starting the New Year off right--Baltmore Style...

    Eight days into the new year, and already three homicides on the tally sheet...

    http://chamspage.blogspot.com/2012/0...-list-and.html

    Good to see that the murder rate in Baltimore is only 1 every 2 days now. Way to go, "Charm City". We all feel much safer in 2012...

    No wonder there are so many murders in Baltimore.
    Every time I walk down a city street I trip over all the guns.

    And the body count continues to grow. Up to 5 now--that's one homicide every 2 days in Baltimore...

    Yeah, they usually pick up the slack in the summer months.

    What what what??? Baltimore isn't one of the 3-4 safest cities in the nation yet? It has to be! Draconian gun laws ensure it! I'm sure all the recent deaths are attributable to violent assaults with hyberbole and strawmen.

    The Gulag obviously needs to step up the process of taking/outlawing guns from lawful citizens to stop this trend. Once everyone who has never committed a crime is denied guns, the problem will be solved. Or anyone who mentions it can be swiftly dealt with by the SS visiting them at 3 AM--after they kick in the door.

    Total for the calendar year so far. So Baltimore has a little more than one homicide every three days, statistically...

    The small WV town where I grew up had a homicide rate of about 1 every 30 years (and that one homicide was committed by a guy from NY who was visiting our town), and that town was armed to the teeth with hunters, sportsmen, farmers, and target shooter with rifles, shotguns and handguns of ALL types...

    The City of Baltimore has it's 20th homicide of the year last night--a stabbing:

    http://www.wbaltv.com/news/30545074/detail.html


    So what next, Mayor Rawlings-Blake and Commissioner Bealefeld, a 7-day waiting period and background check for Wusthoff?

    20 so far this year is a little lower than normal.
    However, every Baltimoron knows that when the warmer spring and summer months come, thats when the streets really get crazy.
    I lived in Baltimore during the crack wars in the early 90's and it was insane. I didnt give a damn about the CC laws there, I did what I had to do.

    Yeah, only one homicide every three days average is pretty good for Bulletmore, Murderland.

    But you are right--historically when the weather heats up, so do the "gats".

    By July, I will be having difficulty keeping up with the announcements, I'm sure...

    LOL true.
    However, the "youths" in Baltimore call gats "whistles" now.

    After a particularly spirited weekend in "Charm City", Baltimore's homicide count hit 40 Monday...

    How's that "gun control" thing working out for ya, Mayor Rawlings-Blake and Commissioner Bealefeld?

    Baltimore Breaks 50

    Three homicides in Baltimore City this weekend, bring the total for 2012 (it's only April, folks) to 51...

    Way to go, Baltimore. How's that "gun control" think working out for you, Gov. O'Malley, AG Gansler, and MSP Superintendent Brown?

    Baltimore hits 55 Homicides...

    http://www.baltimoresun.com/news/bre...,3452791.story

    There have been SEVEN homicides in Baltimore since last Friday. This is the worst seven days for homicides yet this year. Looks like things are heating up in Charm City. We might be in for an interesting summer here in the "Free State".

    Looks like the thugs heard about Gansler's appeal and stay on the Woolard ruling, and are testing the waters with MD's woefully unarmed law-abiding populace...

    Baltimore hits 65 homicides...

    Well, technically, it's 63 "official" homicides and 2 "suspicious deaths", which will most likely be re-classified as homicides once investigations proceed further.

    Happy May Day, Baltimore...

    Baltimore homicide count hits 75.

    The last week saw more murders in Baltimore than there were days in the week, including 4 on Sunday...

    And one was a purely fictional, made up story of the murder of a man who was shot to death on the grounds of a public elementary school, which we know just couldn't have POSSIBLY happened, because MD State and Federal laws prohibit guns on school property...

    Bsltimore Homicide Count breaks 80...

    Seven people shot on Thursday, and one on Friday, starts off the Memorial Day in prime "Charm City" fashion.

    Bulletmore will probably break 90 over the holiday weekend, if history is any indicator...
