I-Team finds illegal guns in Baltimore coming from out of state

BALTIMORE —Amid the hot debate over gun laws, the WBAL-TV 11 News I-Team reveals the steep challenge of reducing the supply of guns often used in crimes. The problem: laws vary state to state.

It wasn't known at the time, but it turns out that a .40-caliber Glock handgun recovered during a traffic stop by Maryland State Police in Anne Arundel County in 2015 was part of a much larger conspiracy to funnel guns from one state to another.

"The firearm came back to a person who purchased it in the state of Georgia," Maryland State Police Sgt. Frank Lopez said.

Lopez runs the state police gun center, which traces guns and performs background checks on people arrested in possession of guns.

MD gun laws like HQL just took jobs away from gun stores and shifted the purchases to other states. Good job O'Malley.

Geniuses, I tell you! More businesses run out of the state by OMalley. What can we outlaw/ overtax next?

Martin O'Malley never saw a tax or fee or regulation that he didn't like, hike or impose.
