Our nation has a problem: mentally disturbed people and criminals who use guns to harm others.
But Maryland Governor O'Malley's gun control proposals fail to remedy this problem. Instead they ban and restrict firearm items from families who seek to protect themselves and their children.
Catholic teaching does not suggest banning guns. Nor does it propose more and more gun restrictions.
Maryland already has rigorous gun control for ordinary citizens. Catholic teaching does not require more. It recognizes that families have a legitimate duty to protect themselves as part of the common good.
