Brown (MD-04) published an open letter outlining his reaction to the recently proposed magnetic levitation (Maglev) track alignments between Washington and Baltimore.

Today, Congressman Anthony G. Brown (MD-04) joined Congressman David Cicilline (RI-01) and 138 fellow Democrats to sponsor the Automatic Gun Fire Prevention Act (H.R. 3947). The bill would prohibit the sale, possession or manufacturing of the “bump fire stock” device – a tool that accelerates the rate of fire of semi-automatic weapons to hundreds of rounds per minute. In many cases, the rate of fire can be modified to 400 to 800 rounds per minute. While Maryland and many states have strict laws regarding automatic weapons, the bump stock is legal and readily available to purchase online.
