Eye Opener: Gun background checks force some dealers’ hand

Here’s a few government and politics headlines for Monday:

  • The Baltimore Sun reports a delay in background checks of gun purchasers — which exploded when the General Assembly began exploring tight gun control legislation, signed by Gov. Martin O’Malley last month — has led some gun dealers to release firearms before the checks return.
  • The Daily Record reports the Baltimore City Council is attempting to hire its own lawyer, after passing legislation that City Solicitor George A. Nilson said was unconstitutional.
  • The Associated Press reports Attorney General Douglas F. Gansler has hired a campaign manager.
