UM Carey Law Hosts Attorney General Douglas Gansler

UM Carey Law hosted Attorney General Douglas Gansler's forum on gun violence, A Conversation among Law Enforcement and Community Leaders to Consider Practical Solutions, Monday, February 4.

The event brought together a roster of civic leaders from across the state to discuss the problem of gun violence with community groups, church groups, victim's rights organizations, state officials, local law enforcement and educators.

"This is the right time to consider pragmatic, common-sense action to reduce gun violence and protect the safety of all Marylanders," said Attorney General Gansler. "We will explore solutions to effectively keep illegal guns off the street and stop guns from getting into the hands of those who seek to kill or harm others."

UM Carey Law Professor Richard Boldt participated in the forum as a panelist as did Adjunct Professor Thiru Vignarajah, chief of the Major Investigations Unit for the Baltimore City State's Attorney.

"We're delighted that the law school was able to provide a venue for such an important discussion," said UM Carey Law Dean Phoebe A. Haddon. "Gun violence and safety touch all our lives."
