The most alarming items stolen however were handguns—three to be exact—taken out of an unsecured home. That's sure to stir the debate about gun control issues circling the State House right about now. 

But we begin this week's log with a crime of passion (not literally) committed against an elderly Ravens fan.

Haven't we had enough flower pot violence in this country! How can we get this under control?

Of course stolen handgun will "stir the debate about gun control issues." Pro-gun people always say that if you take guns away from law-abiding citizens, criminals will be the only ones left with guns. Unfortunately, criminals wouldn't have access to guns if it wasn't for the law-abiding citizens. Criminals obviously can't buy guns if they have certain convictions, so they just steal them from some who can. Or they buy them on the black market from a person who reported that his guns were stolen...

That was no ordinary flower pot. That was an assault flowerpot, with a 30 bulb capacity. Don't try to sell one of those at a garden show here in Maryland.
