ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP)- Maryland Gov. Martin O'Malley will be testifying in Annapolis on a comprehensive gun-control measure he is backing this year.

O'Malley is scheduled to testify Wednesday before the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee.

The Democratic governor wants to ban assault weapons and create stricter licensing requirements for handguns.

The measure also includes provisions to improve the state's mental health services as a way to prevent violence. It would also set aside money in the state's capital schools budget for school safety.
