Sorry, I'm a registered independent who usually votes Dem on the national ticket but GOP on the state ticket because of the level of retarded that our Democrats in MD have attained. Also, I'm a woman, so no use making little dick jokes to me.

So, way to generalize, idiot. There are a ton of left-leaning gun owners in this country, and we constantly get ignored by people like you.

It will.

It should be hard to buy a gun. It should be very hard to buy a hundred guns. Cry me a river. Decrease supply to criminals, fewer people get killed where I live.

We are a regional powerhouse for the heroin trade. The tools of that trade are guns purchased by straw buyers in VA and PA. It isn't just Baltimoreans using it, either - check out how many good ol boys with wv. Pa and ba plates are coming to the corners to score.

So "we have all these guns, and were fine!" Doesn't work for here. We need to reduce the supply of illegally ontaine guns and raise the price considerably. People are still going to get killed so long as folks out in the country and suburbs need their fix and the dope keeps coming through our port. But a dramatic increase in the price of illegal weapons would reduce the number killed.

How will making it harder for law abiding citizens to buy guns in Maryland affect crime at all, if most of the guns used for crime in MD are bought out of state?

Oh, so only the rich should be able to own guns? That doesn't sound very liberal to me.

1) You can't stop straw purchases.
2) It should not be hard to buy a gun.
3) Funny how MD always whines about guns and crime from VA and PA yet VA and PA don't have the same level of crime. That clearly means the problem isn't guns but rather Marylanders and the ghetto known as Baltimore...

Why pass laws that only affect LEGAL gun owners and users? Why not pass a law making it a MANDATORY thirty years w/no parole for anyone using a gun in a crime? This would not INFRINGE on the rights of law abiding citizens. In a few months under a law like this the people that are the real problem would be behind bars for a long time. The word would get around among the criminal element that using a gun to commit a crime is not worth it.

In a fit of idiocy, the House committee did vote down an amendment that would prevent convicts from getting their sentence reduced for good behavior if they were incarcerated due to a gun-related crime.

So our government thinks it's ok to take guns out of the hands of law abiding citizens, but it's not ok to keep people who commit crimes with guns behind bars.

One of your anti-gun people, can you please explain this logic to me?

I'm not against making it harder to obtain a firearm, we really need to weed out those who aren't capable of owning one, but having the option of obtaining one is helpful and allows home owners and other law-abiding residents to protect themselves in needs of self defense. Gun control isn't stopping criminals.

I can explain it to you. Those Dem machine politicians rely on those very criminals and their families for votes. They're protecting their constituents by eliminating their occupational hazards. Robbing people is much easier if you know your victims are disarmed and you know that the penalties for doing so are light or non-existent. It's a win-win situation for the Dem politicians and their constituents. Instead of being shot trying to rob someone, you get their wallet, get off scott free and then go vote for a Democrat in the next election.

I am not surprised, but I am deeply disappointed with the state government.
