Common sense solutions for gun crime

We in Maryland have good gun control with the exception of those moving to Maryland and bringing their firearms.

My suggestion to improve the situation:

Upon moving to Maryland, you must register your firearms within 30 days.

That regulation, along with existing regulations on private sales of guns, would help to track the rest of the legal guns in the state. As for additional legislation on firearms, we don't need them. Just enforce the laws we have. Any legislation, new or existing, is moot unless it is enforced.

Criminals must be punished with full sentence terms. Make them understand that crime will not be tolerated.

It is that simple. Stop the criminals. Don't turn law-abiding people into criminals.
