Maryland to gun owners: We want your fingerprints
WaPo (Maryland local) ^ | 1-14-2013 | Aaron C. Davis and John Wagner

Posted on 01/14/2013 12:37:22 PM PST by Sir Napsalot

Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley will seek to institute some of the nation’s strictest gun-licensing requirements, ban assault weapons and restrict visitor access to schools in one of the most expansive government responses sought to last month’s school shooting in Newtown, Conn.

Perhaps most controversially, O’Malley (D) will ask the General Assembly to force prospective gun owners to provide fingerprints to state police, complete a hands-on weapon-familiarization and gun-safety course, and undergo a background check to be licensed.

And the governor is seeking new measures to keep guns out of the hands of those with mental illness who show violent tendencies. .... (read more at link))

How about I also give you plaster casts of my car tires? Or, better yet, before I leave the house I can call the police and tell them where I am going and when I will be home.

After all, it's a common sense tool.

From my cold, dead hands libtards!!

Well, their ballistic fingerprinting program proved such a success!

What do you mean you can’t get prints from that side of that finger?

I want to hear the details/mechanics of that plan.

"This is quite an IN thing to do with State Executives nowadays."

Many other executives have no problem with that, either, or keeping lawyers on retainer, more protected neighborhoods, more protected offices, etc., keeping them a class apart. We, as a nation, should come down to earth. Otherwise, before long, only the lowly, technically inclined, complicated people will survive (surprise).

That is every prepper with more than three days of food as Homeland Security has already said these people are suspected domestic terrorists. Can't let them have a gun.

You... you... you mean like Massachusetts has had since 1998? And will local police chiefs have the ability to deny you a permit because they don’t like your face, like in Massachusetts? And will the whim of the COP be unappealable in court, like here in Massachusetts? And will the state AG be allowed to deny the sale of any gun he personally doesn’t like, like here in Massachusetts? And will all new guns sold have to adhere to insane, one in the country manufacturing rules like here in Massachusetts? And will all guns sold have to pass a drop test onto concrete, like here in Massachusetts? Embrace the suck. Then join the NRA, GOA, GOAL, any pro-gun group you can find. Or STFU.

****will ask the General Assembly to force prospective gun owners to provide fingerprints to state police****

OKC and Tulsa, OK used to do that for many years. Then it was found it did not solve any crimes so they stopped.

Gun buyers already have to clear a background check.

Where were all these Governors when Fast & Furious came to light?

Seems they surely were silent.

As a thought exercise, apply the same restrictions to those that want to purchase a book and see how the lib heads just about explode. It is actually quite entertaining to see the mental gymnastics of their cognitive dissonance.

So.

Massachusetts must be ‘safe-ER’ than Maryland, or any other state except for maybe CA, right?

Just some states. Do your vacation travel only in gun-friendly states & you’ll find it’s still a big country.

Nice take, Marcella.

I guess if the tyrants pull this off against the Second Ammendment, with no measurable push back, they can finger print us for the First Ammendment as well.

I have concluded there will be no real resistance until we are silenced. Presently, our names are just going on lists; we’re being finger printed, captured, marginalized and frozen. All that seems to be tolerable.

It is not tolerable. Our states are the last bastion of freedom aynd they remain rather quiet generally speaking. I believe the bough is breaking, at least I think I’m hearing a cracking sound.

None of these proposals will prevent crime. They will instead place the onus on people who want to LAWFULLY own a gun. This is all rubbish. The Governor is trying to fool the public into believing that he is actually doing something, when he is in fact doing nothing constructive.

Are they going to go into the ghetto at 2 am and ask the criminals to swing by and give fingerprints? How about asking them if their weapons are legal?

The politicians are afraid. They know that honest, law-abiding citizens will obey the law and not shoot them. They know that gangbangers will not obey the law and will shoot them.

And so the politicians leave guns in the hands of criminals and plan to take them from honest people.

I will be relocating to Pennsylvania before the end of the month. Between the taxes and stupid liberal control, it is time to get out. CCW here I come.

Might have to disarm a lot of state troopers, sheriffs and police in Maryland ....

Yet further proof that MD is THE Freak state ( as if more proof is needed). The state is majority pinheaded LIB moonbats who keep electing complete nimrod asshat morons to office. I pray for any Conservatives who are in that purgatory.

If any of you Freak Staters want to dump your ARs before O’Malice breaks down your doors, now is the time to do it. They’ll be given good homes here in Virginia. We promise to feed them regularly, keep them clean, and take them out for walks.
We moved from Prince George’s County to VA 4 and a half years ago and never looked back.

Are you kidding me? I will never give up my guns. If they take my primary, I have others...if they pass an Unconstitutional law.....

I WILL NOT COMPLY

I’m also a very good hider.
