      Uh, no. Not if you are underage or are a convicted felon. Most likely the shooter was one or the other…if not both.

        How do you know what age they were or if they had a conviction record unless you were there?

    Second amendment rights gives you the right to have a gun to defend yourself, not act like an idiot. There should be an IQ test, common sense test. If you dont have these, well get a bubble g7n

    And they have the right to go to jail if they misuse that right

    Jerks out here playing with guns. Always shooting and rousing law enforcement for nothing because no one is ever shot. Just a pre-cursor for the summer. Look em up and the up and offer MO bail for these waste of existence. Give their axxes double digits sentences and I am sure it may deter a lil bit of the gun play.

    Most likely drug related

    Hmmmm, pretty sure these folks were not carrying legally. Best part?

    “No Officer Bob, I have no earthly idea why someone might be shooting at my house!!!!”

    I’ll bet the nieghbors know damn well, and it’s not that you let the grass get a bit tall and the HOa is sneding a message.

      pretty sure you have no idea if they bought the guns legally or not

    This is a nightmare! Who in there right mind wants to live like this? I blame the individuals thats committing these crimes. They are a danger to society and needs to be lock away forever. Our weak ass judges need to do more in this under serve county. We need louder voices to represent us, and for, the amount of taxes they charge we need to be better represented. You can put camera everywhere how about putting these cameras in those high crime areas. WE WILL REMEMBER YOU AT THE POLLS THIS FALL.

    GARBAGE culture on display. Graduate High School, seek higher education or technical training, get a decent job, find a good partner, start having kids when your established, give a damn about your kids and raise them right. Then sit back and watch the cycle hopefully repeat itself. Or don’t do that and take part in the GARBAGE culture. You then get to watch your kids perpetuate every negative stereotype en route to a life of incarceration. Your choice folks. No excuses for your failures, especially once you are an adult.

      Yeah, and watch them sell drugs, carry a gun, than run from the cops and kill a poor innocent grandmother.

  12. Nikko on June 19, 2019 at 9:08 am

    Actually not everybody. People under 21 or convicted felons are not allowed to carry them. In Maryland you can carry them with a permit only and they are not easy to come by. Actually most of these involved in cases like this are either stolen or sold out of the trunk of a car. So don’t make it sound like legal gun owners should have more put on them, realize your ignorance and see that the existing gun laws should be strictly enforced.

    Time to bring in the National Guard. Or, a good exterminator company.

    Isn’t that the neighborhood next to the Pax River Office Park?

    Second amendment is the right to carry arms–not discharge them in housing areas or at people/homes.

    the “L” park lords are on the prowl they think this is Chicago

    Was the firearm legally registered? If a handgun, did the bearer(s) have a hql and carry permit? When these answers are known, please report them.

    • Yeah, dwell on that... on June 20, 2019 at 6:34 am

      You gun dorks are so laughable.

      Worrying about the legalities while ignoring the crux of the incident.

      What a small world – and mind.

    Laughable? The fact is criminals like this pos will always be able to get them. Laws only affect the lawn abiding citizens. You think we shouldn’t be able to defend ourseves? You liberal
    Losers are pathetic.
