Same Place, Different View

"Maryland State Delegate Don Dwyer, Jr., speaks to other Second Amendment supporters as they rally against stricter gun control laws at the Maryland State House on March 5, 2013 in Annapolis, Maryland. If the Maryland Firearm Safety Act legislation bill is passed, it would require a license to purchase a handgun, ban the sale of assault style rifles and limit magazine size, among other provisions."

Following the advocates for stricter gun laws rally outside of the Maryland State House in Annapolis, Md., I was sent back for the stance a couple days later.

The assignment was exactly like the last - to document a gun-bill related rally. While their message was polar opposite of the last gathering (otherwise known as a Second Amendment right rally) it was almost identical in terms of visuals.

Both sides had signs, speakers and were in the same gathering area outside the State House.

I am not taking sides, but in terms of photographs, this group was visually passionate about their view point on firearms. In an attempt to not be redundant from the previous assignment, I removed myself from the large group to get more of an overall.

To repeat my last post, it will be interesting to see what the outcome of this bill is.
