What about the many people who live in the suburbs but have a hunting lease out in the country? Should they not be allowed to have guns? You don't have to live in a rural area to hunt. Likewise, many people live in the suburbs as well who like to go to gun ranges to shoot their weapons.

Well I think reading the newspaper is enough proof that there is far less violence in Carroll, Harford, and Cecil than in Baltimore City. Look at where all the shootings and homicides are happening. Westminster, Perryville, Bel Air, and Fallston do not experience near daily killigns the way Baltimore City, Washington DC and PG County do. Guns are not a problem in suburban and rural areas.

Meanwhile, Homicides decrease in Washington region - Washington Post


Those areas you listed do not have same population as Baltimore.

Yeah, but based on the article you posted, clearly they are in PG county. I actually agree with you on gun control, but your arguments aren't holding up.
