Perhaps we will have to amend the Constitution in order to really get a handle on gun violence.

    U.S. District Judge Catherine Blake's decision upholding Maryland's assault weapons ban isn't a victory for anyone ("A victory for public safety," Aug. 14). Explain this to me, why aren't all law enforcement personnel included in this law? I mean if a...
