A Maryland man serving a prison sentence in Israel for a horrific murder he committed as a teen in Aspen Hill was gunned down Sunday by police special forces after he stole a gun and shot three guards.
Maryland Lt. Gov. Anthony G. Brown, who led the rollout of the state's troubled Obamacare portal, enjoys a 2-to-1 lead over his closest opponent in the Democratic primary, although many voters may still change their minds before casting their ballots in June, according to a new poll.
The Obamacare rollout has gone so badly in some liberal-leaning states that it has turned into an issue in Democratic primaries, where incumbents are under attack for botching the enrollment period that began in October.
Supporters of Maryland Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler's bid for governor filed a lawsuit Thursday seeking to block his rival's campaign from fundraising during the state's fast-approaching legislative session.
Maryland Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler said Thursday he "probably should have done more" to determine whether alcohol was present at a teen house party he briefly stopped by this summer.
Gun rights activists who filed a federal lawsuit attempting to block stringent new gun restrictions in Maryland demonstrated neither a likelihood of success in the case nor irreparable harm they would suffer if the law goes into effect Tuesday and should not be granted a temporary restraining order, lawyers for the state say.
Maryland dealers said they were seeing unprecedented sales in the hours before stringent new gun laws were to take effect Tuesday.
A federal judge is scheduled to consider Tuesday whether to issue a temporary restraining order to halt new firearms restrictions set to take effect that day in Maryland.
A Maryland delegate has asked the state attorney general's office whether it was legal for state police to allow up to 200 state employees from five agencies to view confidential information about prospective gun buyers as officials process a massive backlog of gun applications.
Politicians, often attempting to distinguish themselves from their opponents and galvanize their supporters, are increasingly getting tripped up over language or ideas at odds with the image they've created for the general public's consumption.
A Maryland delegate says a plan by the nation's leading gun rights group to file a lawsuit to overturn the state's recently passed firearms bill is meeting some resistance among activists.
Courts can immediately begin processing marriage license applications to allow wedding ceremonies for same-sex couples in Maryland on New Year's Day, according to an opinion issued Thursday by the state's attorney general.
A federal appeals court is scheduled to hear arguments Wednesday on the constitutionality of Maryland's controversial requirement that legal gun owners have a "good and substantial reason" to carry concealed weapons.
Marylanders hoping to apply for a concealed-carry handgun permit without providing a "good and substantial reason" will have to wait until a federal court can decide this fall whether the state's law is unconstitutional.
A federal judge has ordered Maryland officials to stop enforcing a law barring state residents from receiving concealed-carry handgun permits unless they provide a "good and substantial reason" to carry their weapons in public.
Mr. Gansler, who at the time vocally criticized Israeli judges for their handling of the case, said Sunday that the incident brings closure to the case.
"He's on the brink of being released from jail and then he goes on what basically seems to be a suicide rampage," said Mr. Gansler, who is seeking the Democratic nomination for governor. "So this was a young man who was still very troubled, and this ends a very tumultuous life."
