I have had the same IPs try to use my system to relay spams several times over the past couple of weeks. Is there a way I can block those specific IPs from connecting?

Add to your firewall rules
iptables -I INPUT -s xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx -j DROP

I decided to try going another route. Since no one outside of my local network really needs access to my pc, I am blocking all outside access and opening things up for my local computers. Is there some reason I am not aware of why this would be a bad idea?

Nope.
