Maryland passes the strictest gun control laws in the country on its law abiding citizens ("The Maryland model for gun control," May 16), yet it does nothing about those who get caught with illegal guns.
If you really want to cut the crime in Baltimore City, slam those who are caught with illegal guns with automatic jail sentences. Don't force restrictive gun laws on law abiding citizens without first slamming criminals caught with illegal guns.
