Marylanders don't need to carry guns, right?

It's such a safe state that no one should ever need it. Ever.


Worthy of note: a teacher from one of the local high schools was shot and killed at the same mall about 6 years ago. This mall is also a frequent center of violence for city teens, as the bus line runs right past it. Yay.

All I can say is move to a free state... Sad and I'd bet it was either over presents, or what he had in his pockets...

Heck, I wouldn't be surprised if it were over a parking space. The lot where it happened is particularly tight on space, and it's right by a bunch of restaurants.

Or, you know, it could have been a random situation. Rumor has it the shooter is a friend of someone on mdshooters, and the guy just lost his wife/home/etc. Apparently he's off his rocker. Still, it's just a rumor and we'll see what the true story is when it comes out.

And unfortunately, moving just isn't in the cards yet. :\

But I don't want to move to a different state. This one is where I was born and bred, and if every pro-rights person abandons Maryland nothing will ever change.

Squirrel, as it is I highly doubt we'll see the kind of change we want. MoCo has too much dang power in this state.

If you think Maryland is going to change your a true optimist.

Spent a few days in the past in Towson. Nice place. But it's not the Mall, nor the State anymore. It's gotten to the point where, if I leave my Doorway, even to let the dogs out in the back, a weapon goes with me.

Hell, some poor little Amish Girl just got shot in the Head down in Rural Ohio a few days ago. 15 years old, just coming back from dropping off her friends from a Christmas Party, out in the middle of Nowhere Land, some Scumbag shoots her.

The Barbarians are amongst us today. Stay Armed, stay Alert. Once you leave your Locked Doors to your Home behind you, you're in "Indian Country." And if all you can carry is J-Frame because of the Legal System, so be it.

I can carry but I don't carry all the time where I am at. If I lived in Maryland I would carry all the time. Especially if I was in the greater Baltimore area. I would not carry any pocket mouse gun either. There used to be areas you were pretty sure you would not be assaulted and Towson was one of them, but your not safe anywhere any more.

Follow up to the Amish Girl Death. I sent you the latest news story on her demise. Unlike 99% of the Politicians and the MSM, I will apologize if anything I say is a mistake, and I do so now. It now looks like the poor girl died because some Stupid Idiotic ^^&^% Fool decides to discharge his Blackpowder Rifle into the air "to clean it," instead of a safe backstop. So a young girl just happened to be in the Wrong Spot at the Wrong Time and suffered the consequences of a "Rule 4" violation.

I stand by the rest of my comments.

The truly sad thing is that I bet if you asked the majority of MD'ers the question posed as your title to this post they'd answer in the affirmative.

That's the problem right there.
