Addressing gun violence requires courage
I would like to ask our lawmakers to have courage when it comes to the gun debate. Courage is a difficult thing at times, especially in times of heated emotional debate. I hope that our legislators will have courage to reject both the NRA's call to do nothing and Gov. Martin O'Malley's call to infringe on law abiding gun owners' rights. I hope that they will have the courage to look at the all of the data and make a decision based on that. It takes courage to look at data that might prove your ideas wrong, and it takes a lot of courage to admit you were wrong.
