Maryland --(Ammoland.com)- 2 More Gun Bill Days are Scheduled 51 Bills to be Heard
Briefly stated, here is the situation:
A total of 51 bills will be heard over 2 days in 3 Committees. Each day we will have bills being heard in 2 different Committees at the same time. This tactic is intended to dilute our numbers, which is why a strong boots on the ground turnout is so important. This is especially true on March 5th because the hearings will be in different buildings.
Friday, March 1st @ 1:00 PM:
4 bills in the House Health & Government Operations Committee 7 bills in the House Judiciary Committee (including the Governors gun ban) Tuesday, March 5th @ 1:00 PM
15 bills in the House Judiciary Committee 25 bills in the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee Be sure to click the links immediately below for important information.
Keep up the email pressure; this is critical if we are to prevail in the face of the Governors attack on our rights.

Maryland's gub'mnt is making an attempt to improve the safety of their new casino business ~ they imagine people from out of state are going to leave the guns at home or something.
Hmm ~ BTW, Maryland's governor came out AGAINST reporting nut cases to the FBI for addition to the federal list. He's since reversed course, but we know how he believes eh!

From Maryland Governor O'Malley's website:
"We should ban military-style assault weapons, limit large ammunition capacity, and require licenses for handgun purchases. We respect the rights of hunters and sportsmen and thats why our licensing requirements will NOT apply to shotguns or rifles."
I get the feeling that the governor DOES NOT respect the right of law-abiding citizens to protect themselves with guns.
To: Colonel Kangaroo
He pretty much fears the public these days ~ he's made a lot of commitments to the big boys who own the casinos and now he's got to clear the streets of Maryland's runaway crime and murder problems.
Which does not logically lead to the conclusion that he has to disarm lawabiding people but that's his intention.

Maryland is a lost cause and has been that way for decades. Conservatives living there should make all efforts to get out since there is no way that they can turn that state around. The population densities in Baltimore, and Prince Georges and Montgomery Counties make that an impossibility.

The new Casino at National Harbor lies in the most criminal county in Maryland . Prince Georges County.

oh yes it does ~ but they want a little something up in Baltimore City as well ~ and they do have some crime there too.
I think it's time to dismantle the bridges between maryland and Virginia.

I think you will find the Deep South a good place to go. I was born and raised in Alabama and I am seriously thinking about leaving my present residence (Virginia) since it is being contaminated politically by the huge influx of liberals in the northern portion of the state employed by the US Government. I don’t want to reside in a state that is governed by the likes of them.
I think you will find Southerners to be compatible with your and my beliefs. And they’re generally speaking a nicer people than than those who reside in the North.

Hopefully, nobody will obey all this nonsense, should it be signed into law.
Maryland “Freak State” PING!
You can blame Reynolds v. Sims for that one. A geographically dispersed state Senate would be able to stop some of this legislation.
When my mother dies, this miserable state will be in my rear view mirror.
I bet the women down there are less b!tchy, too.
Well, since I live in this God-forsaken state, you can not imagine - not without living here - the contempt that I hold Lil’Marty and the MD state legislature.

(I will not comply)
only 1 out of 7 employed folks in NOVA is any kind of government employee ~ but there’s this relatively large nonprofit orgnization industry! That’s where you find the most extreme leftwingtards.

Yet in recent years Democrats have been successful in statewide offices here (even a reliable Republican such as George Allen could not win his old Senate seat back last year). Now, we have two Rat senators and the possibility of another Rat winning the governorship again. What else can we attribute that to but the liberals in northern Virginia?
When I moved to Virginia there was no Republican party ~ that came later.
This was a one-party state.
The clue to the Democrat vote in Virginia is that it never went away.
Regarding control of the State legislature, that's a new thing.

The United States Citizens KNOW that they're going to have to fight TYRANTS in their own government.
You cannot protect life, without the ability to take life.
While you are WAITING for the police to respond, someone could be losing their life.
All people of a responsible age should be armed.
The Second Amendment IS Pro-Life.
"Among the natural rights of the Colonists are these:
First, a right to life; These are evident branches of, rather than deductions from, the duty of self-preservation,
Secondly, to liberty;
Thirdly, to property;
together with the right to support and defend them in the best manner they can.
commonly called the first law of nature...If men, through fear, fraud, or mistake, should in terms renounce or give up any essential natural right, the eternal law of reason and the grand end of society would absolutely vacate such renunciation.
In short, it is the greatest absurdity to suppose it in the power of one, or any number of men, at the entering into society,
to renounce their essential natural rights, or the means of preserving those rights;
when the grand end of civil government, from the very nature of its institution, is for the support, protection, and defence of those very rights;
the principal of which, as is before observed, are Life, Liberty, and Property.
The right to freedom being the gift of God Almighty,
it is not in the power of man to alienate this gift
and voluntarily become a slave."

Let us NEVER FORGET THAT !
Let's subjugate them to OUR end game, DUST! "COMPROMISE"
is a DIRTY word
People who study the Bible know that COMPROMISE almost always leads to destruction
It's time to mock the "Gun Control" Zombies!
"Gun Control" is a firm grip, steady breathing, accurate aim (developed by lots of practice), and a slow trigger pull.
The Swiss have got it CORRECT !
We need to learn from the Swiss
and implement their "gun control measures"
here in the United States right now, today!
These laws are the ones we should shove into the "2nd Amendment Haters"
" Today, military service for Swiss males is universal. At about age 20, every Swiss male goes through 118 consecutive days of recruit training in the Rekrutenschule. ...
Even before required training begins, young men and women may take optional courses with the Swiss army's M57 assault rifle.
They keep that gun at home for three months and receive six half-day training sessions.
From age 21 to 32, a Swiss man serves as a "frontline" troop in the Auszug, and devotes three weeks a year (in eight of the 12 years) to continued training.
From age 33 to 42, he serves in the Landwehr (like America's National Guard); every few years, he reports for two-week training periods.
Finally, from ages 43, to 50, he serves in the Landsturm; in this period, he only spends 13 days total in "home guard courses."
Over a soldier's career he also spends scattered days on mandatory equipment inspections and required target practice.
Thus, in a 30-year mandatory military career, a Swiss man only spends about one year in direct military service.
Following discharge from the regular army, men serve on reserve status until age 50 (55 for officers).
By the Federal Constitution of 1874, military servicemen are given their first equipment, clothing and arms.
After the first training period, conscripts must keep gun, ammunition and equipment an ihrem Wohnort ("in their homes") until the end of their term of service.
Today, enlisted men are issued M57 AUTOMATIC assault rifles and officers are given pistol.
Each reservist is issued 24 rounds of ammunition in sealed packs for emergency use.
(Contrary to Handgun Control's claim that "all ammunition must be accounted for," the emergency ammunition is the only ammo that requires accounting.)
After discharge from service, the man is given a bolt rifle free from registration or obligation.
Starting in the 1994, the government will GIVE ex-reservists assault rifles. Officers carry pistols rather than rifles and are given their pistols the end of their service.
When the government adopts a new infantry rifle, it sells the old ones to the public.
Reservists are encouraged to buy MILITARY ammunition
(7.5 and 5.6mm-5.56 mm in other countries-for rifles and 9 and 7.65 mm Luger for pistols)which is sold AT COST by the government, for target practice .
Non-military ammunition for long-gun hunting and .22 Long Rifle (LR) ammo are not subsidised, but are subiect to NO sales controls.
Non-military non-hunting ammunition more powerful than .22 LR (such as .38 Spl.) is registered at the time of sale.
Swiss military ammo must be registered IF bought at a private store, BUT NEED NOT BE REGISTERED IF bought at a range.
The nation's 3,000 shooting ranges sell the overwhelming majority of ammunition.
Technically, ammunition bought at the range must be used at the range, but the rule is barely known and almost never obeyed.
The army SELLS a variety of machine guns, submachine guns, anti-tank weapons, anti-aircraft guns, howitzers and cannons.
Purchasers of these weapons require an EASILY OBTAINED cantonal license, and the weapons are registered.
In a nation of six million people, there are at least two million guns, including 600,000 FULLY AUTOMATIC assault rifles, half a million pistols, and numerous machine guns.
Virtually every home has a gun.
Besides SUBSIDIZED military surplus, the Swiss can buy other firearms easily too.
While long guns require NO special purchase procedures, handguns are sold only to those with a Waffenerwerbsschien (purchase certificate) issued by a cantonal authority.
A certificate is issued to every applicant over 18 who is not a criminal or mentally infirm.
There are NO restrictions on the carrying of long guns.
About half the cantons have strict permit procedures for carrying handguns, and the other half have NO rules at all.
There is NO discernible difference in the crime rate between the cantons as a result of the different policies.
Thanks to a lawsuit brought by the Swiss gun lobby, semi-automatic rifles require NO PURCHASE PERMIT and are NOT registered by the government.
Thus, the ONLY long guns registered by the government are FULL AUTOMATICS."
The Swiss have got it CORRECT !Let's adopt THEIR LAWS !
The beauty of the Second Amendment is
that it will not be needed
until they TRY to take it.
Read Second Amendment: Its Not About Hunting, IT'S ABOUT TYRANNY .

(It's Simple ! Fight, ... or Die !)
I should have added that I acknowledge that the liberals in northern Virginia are not all government employees. Many are those employed by the government contractors there, along with the many do-gooder organizations that you allude to.
not all gub’mnt employees are liberals ~ they are, for the most part, like everybody else ~ the non profit folks are, unfortunately, all a bunch of commie pigs.
