Maryland's law-abiding citizens and gun crime victims can thank our lawmakers in Annapolis for making it almost impossible to get a gun-carry permit, so criminals know they have nothing to fear from their victims.
Criminals can go to schools, malls, colleges or anywhere else in Baltimore without fear of who may be carrying because they know that until they commit a crime the police will not be there to stop them.
It is sad that the people who make these laws are protected by people with guns, and that they think they are better than the rest of us who pay all the bills.
