Glassman told The Aegis Tuesday he thinks "everyone was outraged at the violence in the school shootings."
He said, however, that many people in his district see the state's proposed legislation as "an infringement on the law-abiding folks," and not a deterrent to criminals who use guns.
"Although it feels good, it's not going to solve the problem of some of the violence that we have," Glassman said.
The senator noted that cities around the country considered the most dangerous also have some of the most restrictive gun laws.
"They really do nothing to address the violence and the folks that break the laws," he said of existing gun laws.
Glassman and Jacobs took issue with Senate leaders cutting off testimony on the bill in the final hours before the vote.
"Everyone should have been allowed their time to express their feelings toward these bills, even if it meant going well into the night or the early hours of the following day," Jacobs wrote in an e-mail Tuesday.
Jacobs added: "Those who came down to Annapolis that day to attend the rally and to testify against the SB 281 were nothing short of amazing. In all my years in Annapolis, I have never witnessed so many people as compassionate about their rights as citizens, their willingness to do whatever it took to be there, and then waiting for many long hours for the opportunity to testify."
Opposed to 'any and all'
The senator also wrote in her e-mail she is "opposed to any and all legislation that infringes upon your Second Amendment right to bear arms."
McDonough said testimony before the joint House committee last week ran until 3 a.m.
He has introduced alternate legislation, House Bill 424, which "simply states that if someone commits a crime of violence with a firearm, they cannot receive early release or parole [from prison] and the sentence cannot be plea bargained."
McDonough said if the bill fails in committee, he will introduce it as an amendment when the full House takes up the legislation, forcing all of his fellow delegates to weigh in.
"I believe my bill actually saves lives and makes common sense and is something that is really needed," he said.
The bill proposed by O'Malley has not yet been voted on by a committee. If passed by the House, it would go back to the Senate for a concurrence vote, and if passed there, would be signed by the governor.
McDonough said a petition to put the gun control issue to a voter referendum is circulating and, if passed, the bill would be held in abeyance and not take effect, if enough signatures can be obtained. The referendum would be on the 2014 ballot.
