What did Hogan tell the NRA?
Based on what Republican gubernatorial candidate Larry Hogan has said about gun control, it's hard to see what the National Rifle Association would find appealing about him. He has said that although he opposed the strict new gun control legislation Gov. Martin O'Malley championed two years ago, he would not seek to repeal it. In various forums, he has said he supports background checks for all gun sales, wants tighter restrictions to prevent those suffering from mental illness from getting guns and would not seek to change Maryland's strict standards for issuing concealed-carry permits. Yet on Monday, the NRA's Political Victory Fund endorsed Mr. Hogan and lauded his "support and commitment to the Second Amendment."
