Crime, Guns are Among Unresolved Issues on Final Day of Maryland’s Legislative Session

Guns and crime will top the list of unfinished business Monday as state lawmakers gather in Annapolis for the final day of the 2018 legislative session.

Legislators introduced a record 3,101 bills introduced in the Maryland General Assemblythis year. Now Democrats and Republicans will be rushing to salvage parts of what was once sweeping crime-reduction legislation endorsed by Gov. Larry Hogan and lawmakers to help reduce violence in Baltimore. They’ll also be trying to negotiate compromises on difficult gun issues, including allowing courts to take weapons from owners believed to be an imminent threat and adopting rules for takingweapons from domestic abusers.
