    Well, Anlunasd, to purchase a regulated firearm in Maryland, you have to go through NICS each and every time. National Instant Check System. The FBI checks your SSN or name and determines if you are a felon or wanted by the police or have certain mental conditions. After that, you are checked out by the Maryland State Police and not allowed to purchase if either deny you.

    Isn't that enough regulation to exercise a Constitutional right?

    I worked 2 days as computer teacher; I was required to undergo background check and fingerprinting. I think background checks for gun purchases should be required. In addition to the governors proposals, I think that parents of minors or troubled youths who commit crimes with family firearms that have not been properly secured should be charged with same crime as the perpetrator.
