Maryland Gun Proposals Split Public

posted on March 11, 2016

The Maryland legislature is considering several divisive new gun-control bills. Some say the state’s complicated gun laws should go further, while others argue they already infringe on Second Amendment rights without making anyone safer. Hundreds of people spoke in front of a Senate committee on the proposals, which seems likely to end in a confrontation between Republican Gov. Larry Hogan and the Democrat-controlled Assembly. 

The proposals include a no-fly list prohibition, public college campus gun-free zones—even a bill banning toy guns that “look” like real guns. According to The Baltimore Sun, Robert Heede of Parkville was particularly outraged by the toy ban. “I’m a legal gun owner, but I would become a criminal because I have a pellet gun,” Heede told The Sun. “I have a grandson that I may want to teach to shoot with it. I agree there needs to be common sense, but there needs to be constitutional sense.”
