Assault Weapons Ban Introduced in the Maryland State Senate
Maryland Shall Issue ^

Posted on 02/09/2010 8:48:32 AM PST by toshut

Well folks, just when you thought that there might be some hope that the anti-gun faithful members of the Maryland State Senate had learned their lesson about proposing nonsense bills like bans on so-called assault weapons, they prove otherwise.

Senator Mike Lennett (D), District 19, Montgomery County, has introduced SB516, the Maryland Assault Weapons Ban of 2010. His co-sponsors are a veritable Who's Who of the anti-gun wing of the Senate.

Now's the time to head this thing off before the hearing is even scheduled and let the members of the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee know that Maryland citizens will not tolerate such an egregious infringement on their rights in the name of political grandstanding.

Click on the link and use the tools to contact MD legislators, even if you are not an MD resident

Thanks

Disarm those that disagree with gubmint.

The gangbangers (allegedly the target) will always be able to get their weapons.

In addition the following is also happening in Maryland:

License required to purchase a firearm

Delegate Sandy Rosenberg,(D), District 41, Baltimore City has introduced HB820: Firearms safety Act of 2010. The text isn’t officially attached to the bill as of yet but here’s what we think will be included in the bill.

•Notation on your drivers license denoting you as legally able to buy a gun.
•Mandatory fingerprinting to be licensed to purchase a firearm.
•Increased fees for the processing of gun applications.

There are potentially some other noxious things included in the bill that refer to dealers surrendering their records of sales to the Maryland State Police, thus providing them a registration list of even non-regulated firearms.

We expected this to land in the Senate first and believe we will see it there by Tuesday morning. Make no mistake, this bill would fundamentally change the nature of gun ownership in Maryland unlike anything we’ve seen in over a decade. It is our responsibility to shut this affront to our liberties before it ever sees the light of day in a hearing.

If I were they, I would want complete disarming of the populace. They must have been reading the rationale behind the 2nd Amendment.

Music to my ears. I hope the Democrats implode and go to Hades. Maybe they can recommend registering weapons on the IRS forms as does Angela McGlowan of Fox News.

"Includes semi-automatic pistols with detachable magazines that also have threaded barrels"

So my Ruger Mark III .22lr target pistol is now an "assault weapon"? Glad I don't live in Maryland. Remarkable...

See, that’s the problem - they CAN’T define an “assault weapon” in any way that actually affects the guns they want to without banning ALL guns, which would tip their hand.

The VPC actually had a memo where they stated that “public confusion was essential” in getting these gun control laws passed.

Music to my ears. I hope the Democrats implode and go to Hades.

The people who vote for them have no problem with it. The majority of Marylanders neither want nor deserve freedom. Unfortunately, they screw it up for those who still think that rights mean something. The cretins who introduce and vote for this sort of thing will have no problem getting re-elected because their voter base is just a worthless as they are. The majority of Marylanders are those people Sam Adams was talking about when he said

If ye love wealth greater than liberty, the tranquility of servitude greater than the animating contest for freedom, go home from us in peace. We seek not your counsel, nor your arms. Crouch down and lick the hand that feeds you; May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that ye were our countrymen.

typical of Maryland ... this bill is a "bell-ringer" - calling all NRA and other Lobbyists to Annapolis to wine and dine the legislature.

Our elite nobles are ringing the dinner bell ... they wish to be served.

Trying to get some crap passed before McDonald comes down. Here in Illinois, the Daleygrad Devilcrats have resurrected a gun dealer licensing scheme, trying to get it rammed through.

I’ve always wondered about that one, too. If I was actually using one of my rifles for its intended purpose, it would be a death weapon, not an assault weapon.
