Maryland, a state with some of the most stringent gun control laws in the country, should be random shooting-free.

" 'It's not an unusual or new idea. And it's the right thing to do,' said Council Member Rick Vogel, who proposed the smoking ban that the council passed 6-1." ...

"I'm not saying that the media can't, or won't, get things wrong from time to time. Mistakes are inevitable, but stupid ones that only require less than five seconds of thought to avoid are not. But the Bambi debacle proves, once more, that a significant portion of the media is far more interested in covering stories that confirm their ignorant view of the world than in discovering the truth." ...

"And yet, these same bambidiots are your Fourth Estate watchdog, protecting your rights and liberties against government encroachment. Better buy a shotgun – I wouldn't count on the toothless old mutt."

"I've had more than 50 years of experience handling firearms, and I have never had a firearm accident. Have I ever had the gun fire when I wasn't expecting it? Yes. However, because the muzzle was pointed in a safe direction, no one was injured or killed. You can have "accidental discharges" because safeties malfunction and fingers slip but no one will be hurt if the muzzle is always pointed in a safe direction."

"The gun lobby in Congress, as brazen as it is shameless, recently scored an alarming coup among compliant lawmakers by jamming a routine appropriations bill with amendments to undermine federal laws that track illicit firearms. The legislative blitz, engineered by the National Rifle Association, took the House Appropriations Committee by surprise last month. Yet it was approved 31 to 30, in bipartisan homage to the N.R.A.'s power to stir politicians' fear and obeisance."
