Supporters And Opponents Discuss MD Gun Bill

Posted: Updated:

ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) - Maryland gun-control advocates hope key parts of a comprehensive measure aimed at preventing gun violence will take root in other states grappling to limit gun access by criminals and the mentally ill. But opponents are gauging interest in trying to uproot the bill at home by petitioning it to the ballot to give voters a chance to reject it next year.
    
Lt. Gov. Anthony Brown praised the reforms Friday, a day after passage. One of the strongest provisions requires handgun purchasers to submit fingerprints to be licensed.
    
But Delegate Neil Parrott has put together a list of measures this year to see which ones residents would be most willing to support petitioning to the ballot. The Washington County Republican says he suspects the gun-control bill will get a high response.
