WASHINGTON — A decision by a Maryland county is roiling the already contentious debate over potential gun control laws.
Prince George’s County’s Department of Parks and Recreation is banning gun shows indefinitely.
“It is a temporary moratorium. We will revisit this,” says Anita Pesses with the agency’s Maryland-National Capital Park and Planning Commission. “We are taking everybody’s opinions and actions into account.”
Pesses is promising the department will re-evaluate its decision after lawmakers in D.C. and Annapolis are done debating possible gun control bills.
