Compared to loony-left members like Del. Moon, and simply malicious pols like Dumais who seem to get sadistic pleasure out of abusing pro-2A, pro due process Marylanders, Sen. Zirkin is Charleton Heston.
Agreed on all counts! You can talk reason with Sen. Zirkin and he listens. He also prides himself as a very good lawyer who understands precedent and the need for legislation to be properly crafted. These qualities put him in the top tier of all the members of the General Assembly in my book. That's not to say I agree with him, but I *can* talk to him.
