The Sun's recent editorial on guns laws ("Resigned to guns," Sept. 25) should have added a picture of Joe Biden and his advice to buy a shotgun from last February. I am sure the victims of the Navy Yard incident would appreciate our vice president's advice. But since it is un-PC to say anything bad about a Democrat, no chance of that happening.

A South River High School senior has been barred from having a firearm for a year, but avoided a criminal conviction Tuesday for having an unloaded shotgun in his car on the school parking lot in February, his lawyer said. Patrick Bryan Mitchell, 18, whose automatic expulsion from the school in Edgewater was protested by students and parents, made no statements before Anne Arundel County District Judge Thomas J. Pryal, who imposed a year's unsupervised probation during which the teenager cannot have a firearm.

Should I spend the money and time to go to the range again this year? Outdoors Girl can image a beautiful buck, 8-point rack, walking directly toward your tree stand.

When Darion Marcus Aguilar of College Park fatally shot two store employees at The Mall in Columbia and then killed himself, authorities said he did so with a Mossberg 500, a Connecticut-made pump-action shotgun that has been on the U.S. market since 1961. A 19-year-old with no criminal record, Aguilar bought the weapon in a legal December transaction from a Montgomery County gun store. The incident has caused some to take second look at the effectiveness of the high-profile gun control measures the state passed last year.

Darion Marcus Aguilar was familiar with The Mall in Columbia. He hung around outside, smoking with small groups, police said. The revelation Tuesday provided the first solid link between Aguilar and the shopping center at the core of this Howard County community, though police say they still don't know what motivated him to kill skate shop employees Brianna Benlolo, 21, and Tyler Johnson, 25, before turning a shotgun on himself. Howard County police said they have reviewed Aguilar's journal and are examining his cellphone and a home computer, but have found nothing that connects him with the victims.

Maryland's gun laws are widely considered tougher than those of neighboring Virginia, but they would not have stopped the Navy Yard shooter from buying a shotgun and walking out of a store with it the same day. Authorities said Aaron Alexis' Monday shooting spree that killed 12 in Washington began with a 12-gauge, 870 Remington pump-action shotgun. He had purchased it two days before from a Virginia gun shop. If Alexis - who police said had brushes with the law and showed signs of mental illness - had visited a Maryland gun store instead, he would have been able to walk out with the same gun. Most of Maryland's strict laws about background checks, waiting periods and purchase limits apply only to regulated firearms, which in most cases means handguns and assault rifles, Maryland State Police spokesman Greg Shipley said.

I'm not sure if this is a tale of distracted parenting or car safety, but either one works. My 10-year-old son -- who is about one inch shorter than me, if that -- has been begging to ride shotgun for quite some time. It's not a daily question, but almost. "But so-and-so gets to ride in the front seat!" And it's true, I see many of his friends up front. I want to joke that I guess I just love him more than they love their kids but I'm afraid he'll repeat it and the joke part will get lost in translation.
