Weaver took the Baltimore Orioles to the World Series four  times over 17 seasons and won one title, in 1970.  Weaver is beloved in the Baltimore region and will forever remain a part of Camden Yards. A statue of him was dedicated last summer in  the stadium’s flag court, along with the rest of the team’s Hall of Fame members.  “This is a sad day for everyone who knew him and for all Orioles fans,” Orioles owner Peter Angelos said.

The rally at Lawyers Mall outside the State House was one of many “Guns Across America” demonstrations that took place nationwide throughout the day. Activists planned events in nearly every state capital and promoted them primarily via social media.  Among the lawmakers who spoke at the rally were Del. Don Dwyer, R Pasadena, Del. Steve Hershey Jr., R-Queen Anne’s, and U.S. Rep. Andy Harris, R Baltimore County.  Last week, President Barack Obama unveiled a sweeping plan to curb gun violence in America, and Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley declared his own plan, which would ban assault rifles, his “top legislative priority.”  The lawmakers at the rally responded by speaking passionately about holding on to their Second Amendment rights.  “This is the fight of our lives,” Dwyer said, speaking in the middle of a circle of demonstrators. “It’s the definition of what this country will or won’t be in the future.”  A police officer at the rally estimated a  (See RALLY, Page All)  By Matthew Cole — The Capital  Manchester resident Kirby Long, left, holds a sign Saturday afternoon during a rally against gun control at Lawyers Mall outside the State House in Annapolis.
