One gun was sold to a man later accused of using it in a carjacking in Prince George's County, police acknowledged in response to queries from The Baltimore Sun. The sales occurred last year as part of a flurry before Maryland's tough new gun law - enacted following the school massacre in Newtown, Conn.

WHAT'S the most recognizable symbol of Maryland's state government?Perhaps you would say the state flag, albeit with cluttered field and a design more appropriate to the finish line of an auto race. Or maybe the Great Seal, whose prominence was recently revived by free translations of the old Tuscan motto Fatti Maschii, etc.But just as recognizable is the Stetson hat worn by the Maryland State Police for nearly four decades. It's the hat that the Texas Rangers made famous as a symbol of law enforcement on the frontier, later adopted by a number of local and state police forces.

Marylanders have been rushing to buy guns at a rate of 1,000 a day over the past two weeks, hastening the pace of an unprecedented surge in gun sales. More than 102,000 gun purchase applications have been submitted so far this year - twice the number for all of 2011, state police said Monday. "It's like Prohibition," said Rick Kain, a gun owner from Howard County. "People want to get their guns before the law takes effect. " Maryland's tough new gun control law takes effect next week, banning the sale of assault-style rifles and requiring fingerprints and a license to buy a handgun.
