Today, Senate Bill 281 received final approval in the House of Delegates by a 78 to 61 vote. On the House floor, the bill was made even worse as Delegates stripped out a committee amendment that would have exempted active duty military and veterans under age 21 from the handgun licensing and training requirements. This extremist anti-gun bill now goes back to the state Senate as soon as TOMORROW MORNING for a concurrence vote on the House amendments. This is your last chance to stop Governor Martin O’Malley’s seizure of your Second Amendment rights.
It is critical that you contact Senate President Mike Miller and your state Senator IMMEDIATELY. Strongly urge them to oppose concurrence to the House version of Senate Bill 281. This is your state Senator’s final chance to protect YOUR Second Amendment rights.
Senate Bill 281 targets and punishes law-abiding gun owners and sportsmen for exercising our fundamental right to keep and bear arms. Please contact Senate President Mike Miller and your state Senator and respectfully urge them to protect your Second Amendment rights by OPPOSING concurrence with the House-amended Senate Bill 281.

Right now in Annapolis, members of the House Judiciary and Health and Government Operations Committees are listening to the testimony of the thousands of Marylanders who came to Annapolis to tell their elected officials that they do not support Governor O’Malley’s attack on their Second Amendment rights. FULL STORY
Over the past week, thousands of Marylanders took time out of their days and off work to travel to Annapolis and tell elected officials that they oppose Governor O’Malley’s attack on their Second Amendment rights. The NRA worked with Maryland State Rifle and Pistol Association (MSRPA), Maryland Shall Issue (MSI) and Associated Gun Clubs of Baltimore (AGC) to coordinate testimony, plan the rally and are continuing to work tirelessly to defeat all anti-gun legislation in Annapolis this year. The strong turnout for the Second Amendment and the weak showing by the scant supporters of any gun control legislation exposes the dichotomy between Governor O’Malley’s claims and the reality – Marylanders are standing for their civil rights and rejecting gun control!FULL STORY
