People who threaten to kill other people should not be able to own or buy guns. Full stop. 

The gunman was not under protective order at the time of the shooting. Regardless, Maryland law doesn’t require a background check on long guns, so he could have bought the shotgun he used to kill his victim from an unlicensed dealer without any flags.,amp.html 

There was an opportunity to close this loophole this year in Maryland, but Rep. Bobby Zirkin stood in the way - despite his claim to be a gun sense candidate. We’ll call this the #ZirkinLoophole until this state senator acts to protect Marylanders. 

Hold Sen. Bobby Zirkin accountable for blocking legislation in Maryland that would have required a background check on long gun sales by unlicensed dealers.
