Maryland's approved $35.4 billion budget for next year would eliminate a long-running program that allows lawmakers to give college scholarships to constituents, potentially ending a system critics have argued is highly susceptible to abuse.
"I want to reduce that violence, and I think we all want to and that means taking action," Mr. Pinsky said. "Is it the perfect action? It may not be, but if we get 90 percent of it right and we can at the end of the day or in two years or four years or five years reduce that stream of illegal guns on the street, it's going to help all of us."
Sen. Paul G. Pinsky, Prince George's Democrat, said the bill goes beyond simply addressing high-profile rampage shootings with mass casualties, noting the gun violence that is claiming lives in less publicized crimes in Maryland.
