Maryland already has some of the strictest gun control laws in the nation, so it’s no surprise to hear that the Maryland House of Delegates passes a measure to ban all firearms from college campuses in the state.
ANNAPOLIS, Md. —
The House of Delegates voted Friday to ban firearms on Maryland college campuses.
The issue sparked serious and thoughtful debate before delegates passed the measure with an 84-49 vote.
“This is a population that we can directly impact and protect,” said Delegate Ben Barnes, D-Anne Arundel and Prince George’s counties.
“News flash: people who are breaking laws are not going to respect this law just like they don’t respect other laws,” House Minority Whip Kathy Szeliga said.
