Grandstanding on guns

Haven't we had enough of Gov. Martin O'Malley's political grandstanding? Trying to one-up New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is not a substitute for governing ("O'Malley to focus on guns," Jan. 10).

Maryland already has more gun laws than necessary. Pandering to President Obama's base is too much.

Fact: Less than 1 percent of criminals convicted of gun violence used an assault rifle, and even fewer obtained those weapons at a gun show.

Mr. O'Malley is great on the hot-button issues but not so much on less politically charged problems.
