    The Sun is setting the stage for a new round of gun control bills to come out once Martin O'Malley wins the election. We've got a couple of weeks left to make a difference in the election.....what have you done this week to prevent this?

    There are several ways that you can respond to the paper by going to:

    Sure, because we all know that criminals will pay attention to NEW laws. Just have to get the wording right and all of a sudden they'll start to behave....

    What an idiot.

    As always, I have a good time fisking the Baltimore Sun.

    I'd send a letter, but they've published me recently on the same subject so I doubt it'd see print. I guess I could email them the link debunking their horse puckey...

    Uhh? Doesn't Maryland already have a law that makes it illegal to store a gun where a child can gain access to it?

    I'm sitting here next to two gun safes packed full of rifles and handguns, by this person's thinking, I should be hearing voices coming from them telling me to kill people. What a whining :cuss: . Better parenting would go a long way.

    It's projection. These messed-up people think that a gun would make THEM violent through their own skewed psyche, so they assume that that's the case with everyone.

    What you Maryland folks need to do is relect Bob Erlich.

    There's the socialist agenda laid out in a nutshell: police control, paternalism, pyschiatric overstate. What's missing: self-responsibility, liberty, Higher Power.

    The Left says WE are blind and won't see the real problem. They choose to ignore what's sorely gone missing in American life in the last four decades of unparalled prosperity, freedom, and self-indulgence.

    For the life of me, I can't figure out what good a politician does by speaking out. Look at all the garbage the Democrats are spewing about Republicans. Most of the stuff is simply incorrect or twisted truth.

    Oh they want more laws..... Maryland is already almost as bad as NJ. They don't talk about the laws they got, rather they just want more laws. Eventually with more laws (ie outright banning), the crack down will commence. I am likening it to Hitler and the SS.

    Someone really ought to tell that nitwit the obvious fact: the root cause of violent crime isn't guns, but criminals.

    Funny, I thought that those are just the things to solve the problem?

    Have security that actually does something in schools besides taking cigarette breaks with the students, and giving out hall passes....

    Or no, wait.... parents actually being involved with their kids? Providing guidance and direction instead of leaving it up to the public school system... or depositing them in from of the TV for hours on end so they can do whatever without the kids bothering them....

    Geting help for crazy people? no no no that cant help, these psychos dont need to be locked up or medicated... afterall, they are only crazy because of the gun.


    These are all actually good ideas! Although I dont know how you can teach a kid character in school... Character is more learned and experienced than taught. But its a step in the right direction.

    Gun control is about fifteen steps backwards, and does nothing to address the root causes of violence. Dumb$#!^s

    Politicians speaking up is part of the problem - getting that bunch of self-serving leeches to do something relevant and effective is the other part.

    Outside of the sports section, there is nothing redeeming about that paper.

    Well, I'm doing my part. Clay in Ellicott is soon going to be a rich man, and I, that much poorer.

    The only people I see with an "obsession" with guns are the antis. Funny thing, that.

    I wonder how many ARE people with messed-up psyches who fear they would hear voices telling them to be violent if they touched a gun?

    Actually, I mostly agree with the second one ('illegal gun' and 'success by conviction' concepts aside).

    (shocking)

    We do need to actually enforce the laws that have been made in this state. If we only enforce 50% of the agreed upon social penalties associated with CRIMINALS who just happen to use firearms, of course the antis will complain about the overall lack of effectiveness of said laws.

    However, their answer will be 50, or 100% more laws, even though the only ones who pay any heed to such laws are us, the law-abiding owners.

    Funny how law-abiding gun owners pay attention to the strict laws, while criminals tend to ignore them. (Trying looking up 'law-abiding' and 'criminal' in a dictionary, Sun.)

    :banghead:
