  1. To people reading this who think they can solve their problems with a gun.

    It won’t be solved. You will be solved, and you will sit in a prison cell for the rest of your life.

      1. Nobody in Maryland gets let out in 15 years after being convicted of killing somebody.

        Find a case and post it here, you can’t, it doesn’t exist.

        Now, are patterns in someone that could lead to murder missed a lot? Yes.

    1. They? Who’s they? Are you saying that anyone who has ever thought about using a gun on another person isn’t ‘smart’ or is a ‘dumb piece of crap?’ I can point you in the direction of some very smart murderers. Just because somebody is educated doesn’t mean they’re peaceful.

  2. People don’t talk anymore they rather had it with violence which leads prison time and lives changed for families
