Miller Says Maryland Senate Will Take Up Gun Bill

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Maryland's Senate president says the Senate is planning to get to work on a gun-control measure.
    
Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller announced the Senate would hold two sessions Thursday in order to take up the bill.
    
The Senate passed an earlier version of the bill more than a month ago. The House of Delegates passed it with some changes Wednesday. The Senate still needs to concur with those changes to send the bill to Gov. Martin O'Malley.
    
The bill, which O'Malley proposed, would ban assault weapons. It also would require people who buy handguns to provide fingerprints.
    
Some differences passed by the House would require people to report a lost gun within 72 hours and prohibit people with probation before judgment for a violent crime from owning a gun.
