ANNAPOLIS, Md. (WJZ)Maryland is a step closer to enacting some of the strictest gun control legislation in the country.
The Maryland Senate passed an amended bill that keeps the governors original plan for gun control intact.
Since their rally Feb. 6, gun advocates have continued to protest what they believe is a violation of their Second Amendment right to bear arms.
And those arguments were echoed in the Senate chamber Thursday.
We are taking that right away from law-abiding citizens, argued Senator Nancy Jacobs, (R) Harford County.
In marathon sessions, the senate amended and passed the Firearms Safety Act of 2013 28-19.
You know if you have a gun youre not going to be happy with the bill, said Senate President Mike Miller after the vote.

Well, they’re not really “taking away the right”. The right is the right and doesn’t run and hide from improper, illegal legislation. They’re just criminalizing your exercise of the right. Not criticizing her, she’s obviously speaking out for rights in an anti-rights hell hole, so she’s to be commended.
And like Chicago I’m sure all the gun violence in Baltimore will just disappear.
Maryland can say goodbye to Beretta.
If they go through with this, we may see a whole lot of slimy, liberty-stealing Democrats out of work next election.
Hop across the border to any small town in West Virginia on flea market day and we'll hook you up with anything you need...and no hoops to jump through!
PS: The only gun laws that the WV Legislature is seriously considering this term would loosen restrictions...
Nancy is a great voice in the MD Senate. I hope she runs for higher office again.
Thanks. I can be there in about an hour or so :)
Well, I’m waiting to see how these laws get enforced (NYS, California, Maryland). I can’t help but see blood in the future.
What a bunch of idiots. MD already has some of the worst gun laws in the country.
Art. 6. That all persons invested with the Legislative or Executive powers of Government are the Trustees of the Public, and, as such, accountable for their conduct: Wherefore, whenever the ends of Government are perverted, and public liberty manifestly endangered, and all other means of redress are ineffectual, the People may, and of right ought, to reform the old, or establish a new Government; the doctrine of non-resistance against arbitrary power and oppression is absurd, slavish and destructive of the good and happiness of mankind.
As the country divides up between free and slave, I’m afraid Maryland is a lost cause. It’s like I tell the Californians, you have to leave, the decision is between a USA free state or offshore.
As I posted earlier, if Ashley Judd wins in Kentucky, I’m outta here.
I hear you my FRiend. These people can use up the nation’s forests putting useless illegal laws on paper. “We the people” still understand what the Constitution says and means, even if these crazed legislators don’t.
We have discussed leaving Maryland often lately. It will be tough leaving the family behind but a free and warmer state seems more than likely to be our answer.
Exactly. If we chopped off Baltimore City and the DC suburbs we would be a red state. We are terribly Jerrymandered here.
For me it was a clear cut choice. When Kucinich took Cleveland into bankruptcy back in 78, I knew it was time to bail out.
LOL. 5-years for a misdemeanor? That’s a new one, at least in my experience.
There’s a pretty good sized gun show tomorrow and Sunday about 5 minutes from my house. Come on down. We’ll peruse the goods, head out later to get some range time in, then finish it off with some d@mn fine BBQ down at Calhoun’s on the River. The Volunteer State has a lot to offer.
The only way that half wit can win here is if the (even dumber) Republican Party establishment screws it up. Which they may endeavor to do.
I know Nancy and she’s one of the good ones.
I certainly expect Beretta to hold good to their word that they don’t bluff. It’s time to go Beretta.
If there is a Tea Party candidate, somehow they have to listen to Rush or Dana Loesh a few hours a week. Somehow our guy in Indiana was clueless that the “war on women” meme was paramount for the MSM/Democrats in 2012.
Rush pointed that out in January 2012 when journ-0-list Stephanopolus telegraphed it. Even low information conservatives like myself totally understood it.
Nothing quite like turning upstanding citizens into enemies of the state by the hundreds of thousands.
They implied they’ll go. I hope they do and take their tax dollars with them. Hopefully they can offer the current employees job offers.
Good. Go south, the Deep South. I recommend Alabama or Georgia. Both offer gun rights. And the climate ain't bad. You get the four seasons with the bonus of winter not being severe. Of course, it's hot in the summer, but hell, it's hot almost everywhere in the summer.
Adding Md. to my no buy zone.
boycott them all
Berretta is considering moving out of MD if this passes according to news reports:
I don’t own any Berretta’s, but will buy one if they move due to this law passing.
North East liberals are playing out their very own Reichstag fire.
Nor should you nor any other Maryland gun owner. They cannot imprison all disobedient gun owners; there is simply not enough room.
And you can bet your ass it will become law.
Maryland "Freak State" PING!
If this gets enacted I’ll have to move my contraband out of state until I can leave permanently in a few years. Until then I’ll still have some “Politburo Approved” guns in case the party starts before I get out.
I’ve looked over that Maryland bill and it’s blatantly unconstitutional.
It shouldn’t be able to stand up to any real court scrutiny but this is the era of Obama.
The more the communists go out of control in the occupied States the more good American Citizens will pack up and leave them in their dust.
The Free States are steadily gaining motivated common sense Americans that do not allow revocation of their rights. They are good solid workers and reliable voters, having already voted with their feet.
The Free States will eventually be so successful with their superior population there will no longer be a need for secession. They will simply let the communist states crumble into nothingness. They will have "gone Detroit."
Free states will have gone success.
I will stand with them, too, even if they arrest me for doing so.
God, thank You for allowing me to be born and raised in Texas!
I also own no guns. Lost my legal rights when I beat down a robber fifteen years ago and a liberal judge had queer ideas about my “duty to flee”.
I first walked into a dojo in the late 70’s, and practice MA daily now. I’ve never had to use a weapon to defend myself, my hands have been enough...but I do believe in carrying a small stout knife as well, as a tool if nothing else, but always one that lends itself to tactical use. I recently lost a simple folding tanto I carried for many years, and ordered a neck knife I thought would be a good replacement. When it arrives I might do a review ;^)
Soon, the law-abiding will be criminals and they will be hunted down and prosecuted with a zeal that has never been used against real criminals since the days of Ness.
I heard about this bill driving to work and can’t remember the last time I was that angry. And decided then that there is no way to abide by this.
They don’t want to put you in prison. They want your guns and money, therefore you can stay out of prison. Lawyers win! Dems get their re-election funds! Just a vicious circle.
Anyone have any info on the protest in support of gun rights that is suppose to happen this Tuesday.
