    I’d bet that if Maryland allowed law abiding citizens to carry a gun with them, these punks would have thought twice before robbing the store. The criminals sontinue to rob, rape and murder people because they know chances are their victims dont have guns on them, because its against the law. If more people were allowed to carry, then Im sure everyone would think again before they decide to do a crime in fear that thier potential victim might be armed.
