21. That's true.

I am originally from upstate NY. lot's of hunters etc., up there. I have always been fine with hunting guns. I am fine with stricter gun control laws. I like what Maryland did.

While I am looking forward to his response to his votes on tort reform (because ultimately those votes were more about tort reform than gun issues) , I still do not believe he is a gun enthusiast like the ilk on the right.

Either way, O'Malley has a much better record on this. It's because he was a governor. He needed to serve the constituency of his state from a gubernatorial POV. Senator Sanders comes at this POV from a congressional and senatorial POV.

I still believe that what O'Malley did as Governor regarding guns is wonderful. http://www.nbcwashington.com/news/local/Governor-Martin-OMalley-to-sign-gun-control-legislation--207695891.html

He signed legislation to ban the sales of nearly all semi automatic weapons.
Maryland's gun laws are now among the strictest in the nation.
Governor Martin O'Malley signed the sweeping gun control measure Thursday. Under the new legislation, which the governor helped push through the General Assembly, anyone buying a handgun will have to submit fingerprints to obtain a license. The bill also bans 45 types of assault weapons, but those who own the weapons before the law goes into effect will be allowed to keep them.
Gun magazines will be limited to 10 bullets, gun ownership by people who have been involuntarily committed to a mental health facility will be banned, and Maryland State Police will be able to suspend the licenses of gun dealers who fail to comply with recordkeeping obligations.
