Salisbury University Hosts 67th Session Of Maryland Girls State For 4th Straight Year

Posted: Updated:

SALISBURY, MD - Over 120 seniors throughout the state were in attendance at Salisbury University for the 67th session of Maryland Girls State.

The event gives high school seniors a hands-on look at how a government is ran. They will also be holding mock trials, learning about the judicial process and meet with local and state legislators.

Some of the guests that the students will meet will include mayor Jim Ireton and Wicomico County Executive Rick Pollitt.

The biggest concern for most of the students seems to be the issue of gun control.

"I'm not super gung ho about this but I'm in favor of more gun control based on recent events and also I feel like, in this day and age with the technology that we have available to people, it's not necessary for it to be available to the public so we need some stricter, more strict restrictions on certain gun and weapons," says Federalsburg native Megan Smith.

"On gun control, there should be more procedures taken because there's not enough. It's strict measure to get a gun, but not strict enough because there's always a vendor getting a gun and selling it to people who don't deserve to have a gun," says De'Lecia Ellis, a Cambridge resident.
