Roughly Speaking: Newsroom Edition, episode 20:
Maryland has enacted perhaps some of the strictest gun control measures in the country, including requiring residents to provide “substantial reason” to receive concealed carry permits and instituting “red flag” laws that allow for the temporary removal of guns from Marylanders if an officer, family member or health professional raises concerns to the courts.
While gun rights advocates argue that the state’s attempts at curbing shootings have backfired and infringed upon constitutional rights, gun control supporters counter that Maryland hasn’t done nearly enough to save lives.
On today’s episode, State House reporters Luke Broadwater and Pamela Wood examine the two sides of the Maryland gun debate and review the gun-related legislation that’s already in the works for the 2020 Maryland General Assembly session.
