Episode details

Episode 2 of Free State Politics podcast examines controversial voting laws enacted in several states, which critics fear will result in voter suppression. We talk with Baltimore City Senator Mary Washington to learn how those laws differ from voting laws just passed here in Maryland. We also have reaction to the Supreme Court’s announcement to review a controversial concealed carry law in New York, which opponents say restricts law-abiding citizens from carrying concealed weapons in public. Howard County Delegate Vanessa Atterbeary and Republican Senator Justin Ready weigh in on how the high court’s decision could potentially impact gun laws in Maryland.
