Gun Control Advocates Pressure Maryland Lawmakers


Gun control advocates were at the Maryland State House in Annapolis on Thursday, pressuring lawmakers to support bills in the 2019 Session.

The demonstrators were primarily from the Maryland chapter of “Moms Demand Action for Gun Sense in America.” The demonstrators say they’re calling for what they call “common sense” legislation, which includes banning 3-D printed guns and kits known as “ghost guns.” They also demanded background checks for private purchases from individuals and gun shows.

Among the advocates, Andrea Chamblee, whose husband John McNamara was among five people killed during the Capital Gazette newspaper shooting in July of last year.
