A majority of the state is held hostage by Baltimore City and the 2 counties that are connected to Washington DC that are full of liberal transplants from all over the country that come here to work in DC. I can assure you my neighbors and I didnt vote for this nonsense. Our states so stupid we passed a "Rain Tax" 150 a year in a new tax just to protect the bay from rain run off. Then we DOUBLED our gas tax its goin up .23 over the next 2 years.I don't know. You and your neighbors elected those folks in MD--you tell me what their reasoning is.
I agree depending on how its written it need clear and concise set of requirements for what prevents people form being allowed to buy a gun no opened ended statements like "multiple convictions fr crimes involving AlcoholI want to start with better background checks,
Should not need a license to exercise a constitutional rightmandatory education for licensing,
How do you check for compliance?and improved safe storage laws/unsafe storage penalties.
I never said we didnt need to make changes nobody has said that we want real changes that will work. as you said a 10 year ban will do nothing.But the answer to your previous post is still that the fact that things are bad now and will remain so for the foreseeable future doesn't mean we shouldn't make any changes--it means that the sooner we make them, the sooner we might see an effect. A 10-year AWB isn't esp. effective as guns have a better than 10 year useful lifespan. After 30 years they'd be rarer--lost, damaged, poorly maintained, confiscated, etc. Prohibition of alcohol didn't eliminate it until what people had in stock was drunk up. Stuff was imported or made here illegally, but it sure made it harder for the average person.
