If anyone has followed him I think a reasonable description would be moderate Democrat with logic. He is not going to bring a bill out that isn't well thought out and is going to get tossed in the courts...or at least he tries not to.

He will even bring garbage bills out to watch them die to prove a point.

All things considered I think he's done a good job. He doesn't fall pray to social pressures and from my understanding he's willing to listen and does take other view points into consideration.

I'm not sure what his end game is in the political world but he's lining himself up for long term success in this State at least.

I have no problem with Zirkin. I'll take a reasonable and rational Dem any time. Problem is they're pretty thin on the ground in MD.

I also saw Vallario as a worthy legislator. Didn't always agree, but he was a reasonably impartial chairman. I was saddened to see that he lost re-election.

Come on guys, the guy won a wizzing match in a clash of egos with a freshman legislator. Good for him, but he isn’t a friend of the 2A.

With that said, he seems like a guy’s guy, but he’d vote for UBCs faster than you can blink...if they came with about two ounces of less sass. I give him credit this session, but don’t let the smooth taste fool ya....he is an anti.

This is Maryland. You take whatever advantages that might exist. A nearly rational legislator in a position of power is better than a General Assembly full of Dumaises and Atterbearys.
