So the problem is that the guns came from outside the City. If that is in fact the case, how will registration or stricter gun control help the law abiding citizen. My guess is the guns will continue to come in and I doubt that the criminal element is going to trot on down to City Hall to register them so they can be in compliance.
Our Baltimore County Police Chief can represent all the orgnaizations he desires. The only reason those groups want to ban or register forearms to acheive greater control. They were also probably told that if they didn't go along with the program their funding would be cut.
