Supporters of the Firearms Safety Act wave their signs protesting against gun violence at the Prevent Gun Violence Rally on Lawyer's Mall in front of the State House  in Annapolis on March 1, 2013.

It also would limit magazine capacity to 10 rounds and prohibit anyone who has been involuntarily committed due to mental illness from possessing a firearm. (Associated Press/Capital Gazette)
