Governor Throws Public Focus on Misguided and Ineffective Proposals, Avoids Viable Solutions to Promote Public Safety and Welfare
Anti-gun Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley’s (D) statement outlining gun control proposals on January 14 was a cause of alarm to all law-abiding residents in the Old Line State, and his press conference today only confirms that he is more interested in politics that target the law abiding than responsible governing to limit crime. O'Malley will be pushing a broad gun control package through the Maryland General Assembly soon, which will include attacks on your Second Amendment rights and hunting heritage that O’Malley claims are “common sense.” However, these anti-gun proposals have been tried in the past as an easy “solution” - and have been proven resounding failures across the country. Despite this, O’Malley continues to loudly advocate for these same failed proposals and ignore simple reality. Criminals simply do not obey gun bans, register their firearms or comply with any gun control schemes. As a result, only law-abiding citizens will comply and be left defenseless. The following misguided policies can be found in O’Malley’s extremist gun control package:
On many levels, O’Malley’s proposed legislation over-reaches and misses the mark. It will do nothing to stop crime and will only penalize the law-abiding. While the legislation has yet to be introduced, one thing is for certain: Anti-gun politicians are attacking your rights as an easy target because they will not focus on real solutions for the criminal acts of violence, such as in Baltimore by gangs and drug dealers. The NRA-ILA will continue to send updates on this matter as details become available to us. However, it is of the utmost importance that you act NOW to stop all attempts to ban firearms and enact more ineffective and onerous gun control laws. Call and e-mail your state Senators and Delegates IMMEDIATELY and let your voice be heard on this matter.
