Gun con­trol doesn’t work

Baltimore Sun - - FROM PAGE ONE - Glen Biddle, Eas­ton

I am amazed that The Sun’s ed­i­to­rial board is not cu­ri­ous as to how all of Gov. Martin O’Mal­ley’s gun con­trol has failed to drop the crime rate and use of guns in Bal­ti­more (“Bal­ti­more awash in guns,” Sept. 9). All these laws do is pu­n­ish law-abid­ing gun own­ers and do noth­ing to pre­vent crime.

But that was the pur­pose of the laws. They sure were not to pro­mote gun safety or fight crime. Look at Chicago for an­other ex­am­ple of strict gun con­trol and off-thecharts gun vi­o­lence. Crim­i­nals do not obey laws, and some­how this is lost on all of you so-very-in­tel­li­gent mem­bers of the Fourth Es­tate and rul­ing class.
