Gun Control Hearing Draws Big Crowd To Annapolis

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Hundreds have gathered to express opposition to Gov. Martin O'Malley's gun-control measure.
    
A large crowd of people filled Lawyer's Mall in Annapolis on Wednesday.
    
Lou Levy of Parkton says he disagrees with changing gun laws instead of focusing on the people who commit crimes.
    
O'Malley, a Democrat, is scheduled to testify before the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee later in the day, as are supporters and opponents.
    
O'Malley wants to ban assault weapons and create stricter licensing requirements for handguns.
    
The measure also includes provisions to improve the state's mental health services as a way to prevent violence. It would also set aside money in the state's capital schools budget for school safety.
