Sponsored content – Gov. Hogan signed a host of bills into law in April that change the way guns and ammunition are governed in the state. The package of bills is one of the most comprehensive to be signed into law of any state in the country.
Part of the legislation includes a ban in the state on bump stocks and any other device that permits semi-automatic fire. Another bill in the package increases the ability of law enforcement officers to confiscate guns from people who have been labeled as an extreme risk. This is now known as the “red flag” law.
States across the country have expressed support for this type of legislation but Maryland becomes one of the first states in the country to act on it following the shootings in Las Vegas and in Parkland, Florida.
Pregnant women may be unsettled by “The Quickening,” the slow-burn ghost story on at Fells Point Corner Theatre through July 1.
