America isn’t the country The Washington Post says it is. It’s a big, wonderfully diverse country full of great people—along with some bad neighborhoods and bad guys—with seemingly endless rural stretches where the sheer magnificence of our sprawling landscapes means that police response times might be well above the national average. It’s a country of 50 states that grew from sea to shining sea on the gumption of the pioneer spirit grounded on individual freedom—our Second Amendment-protected rights, which can come down to a right of self-preservation, being paramount.

Legislation pending in the General Assembly would overturn the state's long-standing rule restricting the concealed carry of guns to those who can articulate a "good and substantial" reason for needing to and instead allowing a general desire for self defense to suffice. Sen. Wayne Norman, a Republican representing Harford and Cecil counties, pointed to the current violence in Baltimore as the ultimate justification for opening the doors to far more people carrying guns in public. "I would suggest that's a reason to have a permit," Senator Norman said during a hearing on the legislation. "These are dangerous times, and this is a dangerous place."
 

 QUOTES TO REMEMBER
As nightfall does not come all at once, neither does oppression. In both instances, there is a twilight. And it is in such twilight that we all must be aware of change in the air, however slight, lest we become unwitting victims of the darkness. — Justice William O. Douglas, US Supreme Court (1939-75)
