Maryland's political MOB (Senate President Thomas V. Mike Miller, Gov. Martin O'Malley and House Speaker Michael E. Busch) are now pushing for more gun control laws on law abiding citizens with the Firearm Safety Act of 2013. Maryland today already has some of the most stringent gun control laws in America. It needs to enforce the current laws, and the courts need to hand out stronger sentences. The Maryland MOB claims to want to "keep guns out of the hands of criminals. " Maybe they should consider the actions of the Justice Department and Attorney General Eric Holder in the Fast and Furious scandal where hundreds, if not thousands, of assault weapons were given to criminals and used against our own border patrols killing one agent.

CHICAGO -- In the aftermath of the Virginia Tech massacre, there was the usual debate between supporters and opponents of gun control. On one thing, though, everyone seemed to be in agreement: Seung-Hui Cho, whom a judge had found a danger to himself, never should have been allowed to buy a gun. But now that legislation has been introduced to keep deranged people from getting firearms, we find not quite everyone is on board. Under federal law, Mr. Cho was legally barred from gun possession.

Brookline, Massachusetts -- Suddenly it's in our back yard.Suddenly the scene of the crime is not in some isolated abortion-clinic building on a Southern highway or a strip mall. It's on Beacon Street, along the Boston Marathon route, two minutes from my front door.This time it's not Michael Griffin. It's not Paul Hill. The suspect is another man, John C. Salvi 3d, handsome, curly-haired, clean-shaven, dressed in black.This time the murder victim isn't even a doctor or a clinic escort. It's two young receptionists.

Early broadcasts about the crash of a Greyhound bus in Tennessee, after a man with a foreign accent slashed the driver's throat, included mention of an unknown: whether the incident had been an act of terrorism. Later, it would be reported that the man was deranged, but the fact that the question of terrorism was even raised is a reminder of how drastically the American psyche was transformed on Sept. 11. Assumptions once considered safe no longer hold. Yesterday's tragedy, which left six people dead, was appalling.

A whacked-out serial killer, obsessed with the number three and telephone terrorism. A seminary student who may be his next victim. A deranged aunt who layers on her makeup with a trowel. Riddles that, if answered properly, might keep death at bay. Phone Booth. What Ever Happened to Baby Jane? Se7en. Saw. Most of the fun to be had with Thr3e is to spot the movies from which it cribs. Beyond that, what one has is a conventional psychological thriller that cheats too often and depends on actors determined to play only one note.

AT THE AGE of 39, a time when a man should be coming to terms with himself, I've made an alarming personal discovery.The alarming discovery is this: I have started talking to myself.In fact, I talk to myself all the time. The conversations, by and large, are not that interesting, even dreary, really. Most originate out of frustration, such as when I'm tailing some idiot who's doing 45 mph in the fast lane, or I misplace my wallet, or some thug in my own household makes off with my tomatoes, as we will see shortly.

ATLANTA - Lee Boyd Malvo, the younger sniper of the notorious spree-killing duo that haunted metropolitan Washington in 2002, no longer stands in danger of the death penalty. Neither does Christopher Simmons, who was 17 when he kidnapped a Missouri woman, hog-tied her and threw her off a bridge. Neither does Larry Jenkins, who was 17 when he took a Georgia mother and her 15-year-old son from a coin laundry, robbed them and shot them both dead. Their crimes were heinous. They showed their victims no mercy.

ALEXANDRIA, Va. -- When the Zacarias Moussaoui trial resumes tomorrow, gone will be the images of a shadowy world of Muslim extremists, of an FBI and CIA unable to track their movements, of a conspiracy in which Moussaoui's role on Sept. 11 is still unclear. Now that a jury has found Moussaoui eligible for the death penalty, the trial comes down to a single question: Does he live or die? Federal prosecutors, wanting Moussaoui dead, intend next to turn Courtroom 700 over to the horror of that day 4 1/2 years ago. They hope to show pictures of all 2,972 who perished, videos of the World Trade Center towers afire and bodies falling, and audiotapes of desperate phone calls to loved ones and emergency crews.

No one would expect Anthony Hopkins to excel in a Marx Brothers movie, and the notion of Groucho portraying Hannibal Lecter boggles the imagination. Yet director Halo Wines made an equivalent choice when she assigned actors who have distinguished themselves in dramatic roles to play comic characters in the Olney Theatre Center's current production of `The Rivals." Beyond any doubt, these actors are skilled - but their skills are different from the ones required by this play. So while this production seems to have all the elements for success - lines that are laugh-out-loud funny, superb craftsmen on the stage and behind it, even a receptive audience - it mysteriously never lifts off. This show should be as hard and bright as glass, but it's missing a manic gleam.

Washington.---EVIDENCE that Washington is, strictly speaking, deranged -- literally disconnected from reality -- includes Richard Darman's statement on Sunday television that President Bush did not do what the nation saw him do. Mr. Darman, the budget director, said the president, in his television speech concerning the budget deal, ''wasn't actually asking the public to support this.''This is what Mr. Bush said: ''Tell your congressman and senators you support this. . . . Urge them to stand with the president.

Remember her? How could you forget her? She dominated your life like a Colossus of Toads.She was . . .AIYYYYYEEEEEEEEE! . . . Mom.Not your mom or my mom, but the mom we measured our moms against and by whose standards we found ours wanting. She was the '50s myth of Mom, the Meta-mom, the Robo-Mom who got up and put on her freshly pressed dress, stockings and heels and went cheerily down to the kitchen at the crack of dawn to fix bacon 'n' eggs for the family, her eyes glittery as Home Shopping Network diamonds, her smile like a crack in a nuclear reactor leaking incandescence into the atmosphere.

ANOTHER SEARING image. More innocents being led from a bloody crime scene. This time it was children at a Jewish Community Center in Los Angeles. Last time, it was office workers in Alabama. The time before that, stock traders in Atlanta.This time -- just like last time and the time before that -- an unstable person had access to a powerful gun.And you can regrettably predict what comes next: The gun lobby repeats that "guns don't kill people, people kill people."Nonsense. You can draw a straight line in logic from the proliferation of guns in this country to the rising tide of senseless violence.

Rarely has suburbia looked as blandly malign as it does in "Arlington Road," Mark Pellington's taut, harrowing and thought-provoking new suspense thriller.As early as the movie's first scene, of a young boy staggering down a well-kept street, the movie's atmosphere and emotional tone are made clear, driven home by images of benign domesticity -- a flag, a bird feeder, clothes flapping on a line -- shown in striking photographic negatives. In this disquieting movie, paranoia and suspicion rule the day, and even something as innocent as a Dalmatian gnawing a bone looks frighteningly ominous.
