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.
