Thank God for Maryland's tough gun laws, doing their job at reducing crime.

Considering it was a stabbing I'm not sure how Maryland's gun law relates to this incident?

So many people blog and don't ready or don't have enough sense to comprehend what they are reading. How do gun laws come into play with a stabbing.

If they used guns he would be dead. You are an idiot.

are you guys for real?? Hk45 is making the point that Maryland's over-reaching gun laws DO NOT stop violent crime. I'm sad that this needs to be explained to some of our fellow Post readers.

I want to know what store sold those illegal knives. They need to be picketed and the makers of the knives sued!
