Thank goodness for the 2nd Amendment so that we may all be armed in case someone cuts us off on the road!!

Notice that the officers were on a routine patrol and witnessed the dispute.

This should be on the FRONT PAGE of every newspaper in the world to show the value of police officers on routine patrol.

The ones who need to know about it, first and foremost, are the members of the Prince Is Gorgeous County Council so they can restore the police staffing requirements they TEMPORARILY suspended way back in 2006 ... FIVE YEARS AGO.

Concealed Carry in Maryland is essentially prohibited for all but law enforcement and a handful of people with demonstrable threats of violance against them.

More than likely this person was carrying illegally and of course, used the gun illegally. So I'm not sure what the 2nd Amendment has to do with it. Do yourself a favor and go to a gun range for a day. Guns are no more dangerous than an automobile if used correctly.

Sorry, I spread the blame, I blame the gun makers for putting out soo many guns that any idiot can get their hands on one legally and illegally. I blame the idiot who misuses the gun and I blame the public for using the 2nd amendment as an excuse to ignore the problem of too many guns and too many idiots with access to them.

An automobile is used to transport people from one place to another. A gun is used to put a hole in something by firing a lead projectile at it. One is for transportation, the others clear purpose is to put a hole in something or someone. Dont compare a car to a gun. They are not the same. They are not used with the same purpose. When someone invades your house what do you look for, your gun or your car?

"Guns are no more dangerous than an automobile if used correctly."

Automobiles are incredibly dangerous, but somewhat useful.
