The Brady Campaign to Prevent Gun Violence just handed out their annual scorecard, and Maryland received an A-, putting it fourth in the nation behind California, Connecticut, and New Jersey.
The grade is the result of recent gun-control legislation in the state that placed a ban on several assault-style weapons and instituted a policy of fingerprinting all gun buyers.
That last provision was the hardest for gun owners to swallow, but it’s also the most crucial, according to advocacy group Marylanders to Prevent Gun Violence.
So, yay. Or, boo. As you prefer.
