Baltimore’s Gun Offender Registry

This month for The Appeal I wrote about Baltimore’s Gun Offender Registry Act. At the time it was established (in 2007) Mayor Shiela Dixon touted the GORA as a tool to help reduce gun violence in the city. However, in the decade since it’s creation, the registry doesn’t seem like it’s done much of anything except give the BPD another way to exert control over people’s lives.
