Martin O’Malley Tries To Get A Leg Up With Gun Control

posted on October 24, 2015

With Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders receiving far superior polling numbers in the Democrat presidential race, former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley is trying to battle his way to the top with his anti-gun credentials. Consequently, he made his first campaign stop in Charleston, S.C.—capitalizing on tragedy, naturally—to call for new gun-control measures.

The Post and Courier reports that O’Malley supports banning “military-style” guns, exposing firearm manufacturers to liability for crimes committed with their products and beefing up background checks. Why O’Malley thinks that establishing himself as the most stridently anti-gun candidate is his ticket to victory is anyone’s guess. We doubt that touting his extreme positions will slow his inevitable slide into irrelevance.
