Since Catonsville is an educational epicenter, driven in large part by the University of Maryland campus, many residents are either students or professionals in the University system.

As is the case in many major metropolitan areas, there is an increased risk for crime, including violent crime. Violent crimes come in many forms, including gun-related offenses.
It is an unfortunate fact that gun-relate offenses dominate the crime rate in America. On any given year, there are thousands of gun-related incidents that occur in the United States, both fatal and non-fatal. Each day, Americans are involved in gun-related crimes, and the issue has become a prevalent one in urban areas that are affected by gang activity.
Gun-related transgressions range from illegal possession to homicide or assault with a deadly weapon, each carrying varying fees and penalties, including jail time.
