''One would require all gun owners in Maryland to get liability insurance. Another would force them to lock up firearms at home. Yet others would heavily tax ammunition; force gun owners to report lost or stolen firearms; outlaw exotics bullets, and further restrict access to firearms by the mentally ill.''
