Which part of Baltimore?

By Clarence D. Long III, Warrenton

Earlier on this blog, William Tunney complained that his enjoyment of Virginia is hampered by the state’s gun laws. He said he grew up in Baltimore and does not recall any problems with crime. His recollection of Baltimore is different from mine.

There are parts of Baltimore where there is little or no crime, such as Roland Park. There are parts of Baltimore where there is a great deal of crime that would scare the daylights out of Clint Eastwood.

Mr. Tunney is welcome to stay in Grantsville, Md., which apparently is close to Pennsylvania. We can probably survive without him in Virginia.

The Commonwealth's gun laws keep the riff raff from DC, PG, Baltimore, and other places out. They are too afraid of getting shot while running their "hustle." It is ironic that these liberal utopias mentioned above fail because of strict gun laws.

We wouldn't have all these problems with guns if we would get to the core of the problem--and that's our stupid drug war. Legalize drugs, and the money saved from enforcement and incarceration could go to drug rehabilitation clinics, jobs, and education.

Why can't Americans learn from the failure of the 18th Amendment?

Why do you think that violence would go down if drugs were made legal? Do you think that drugs would be come an over-the-counter item that you can by in any store like Aspirin? The drug related shootings in DC that are between dealers over turf wouldn't end.
