ROCKVILLE. Md. (WUSA) -- Maryland Lt. Governor Anthony Brown along with other Montgomery County executives including Ike Legget held a town hall meeting in Rockville to discuss the proposed legislation further restricting gun ownership in Maryland.

Lt. Governor Anthony Brown, and Governor Martin O'Malley are trying to push what they call "Common Sense Gun Laws."

Although, people spoke on both sides of the issue more sounded off against the proposal rather than for it.

The O'Malley-Brown plan calls for school security improvements to the tune of 25 million dollars, an improvement in current mental health initiatives and programs, and perhaps the biggest contention, new laws to current owners that include:

1. Ban on assault rifles;

2. Magazine capacity limit to 10 rounds;

3. Tougher Background checks.

Despite the opposition to the plan Lt. Governor Anthony Brown said , "I do believe we will pass the lion share of what we proposed."
