Maybe when they say don't focus on the tool but rather on the person, they're just spouting empty words. It seems like in Maryland both efforts are met with the same resistance.Gov. Martin O'Malley is joining Baltimore officials in calling for tougher penalties for gun crimes.
Similar proposals in past years have faced a tough audience in the House Judiciary Committee and Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee, which hear testimony on crime legislation and have been reluctant to add mandatory sentences or to restrict the prison system's ability to release offenders early.
