Your Help Is Needed To Stop The Maryland Assault Weapons Ban

Wednesday, February 4, 2004

Next Tuesday, February 10th, the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee will hold a public hearing on Senate Bill 288, which proposes to BAN the possession of so-called "assault weapons" in Maryland.

This onerous bill defines an "assault weapon" as any semi-automatic firearm which possesses even ONE cosmetic feature that is deemed unacceptable by the bill’s sponsors. The bill also bans "copycat guns"- anything the state thinks resembles an "assault weapon". In addition, the bill mandates registration of any such firearms that are already in private hands by a certain date.

Several members of the Judicial Proceedings Committee who support the proposed ban need to hear from you. Please be sure to contact the Senators listed below and voice your strong opposition to Senate Bill 288, the Maryland Assault Weapons Ban. Please make the call today--- the future of gun ownership in Maryland depends on it!

Chairman Brian Frosh (D-Montgomery): (410) 841-3124

Vice Chairman Leo Green (D-Prince George’s): (410) 841-3631

Senator John Giannetti (D-Prince George’s): (410) 841-3141

Senator Jennie Forehand (D-Montgomery): (410) 841-3134

Senator Rob Garagiola (D-Montgomery): (410) 841-3169

Senator Ralph Hughes (D-Baltimore City): (410) 841-3656
