Yesterday in Annapolis, a press conference was held announcing the introduction of House Bill 1367, the Maryland Assault Weapons Ban of 2006, sponsored by Delegate Neil Quinter (D-13) of Howard County. Headlining the press conference was Baltimore Mayor, and gubernatorial hopeful, Martin O'Malley (D).
Despite acknowledging that so-called "assault weapons" are used in only a small fraction of crimes, Delegate Quinter and Mayor O'Malley made it clear that they stand ready to strip you of your right to own these legal firearms, no doubt the first step to further eroding your Second Amendment rights.
Mayor O'Malley and Delegate Quinter need to hear from you as soon as possible. Tell Mayor O'Malley that the people of Maryland do not support his efforts to play politics with the rights of law-abiding gun owners, who are the only ones who will be affected by this proposed legislation. Mayor O'Malley can be reached at (410) 396-3835.
Delegate Quinter can be reached at (410) 841-3246. Be sure to tell him that you strongly oppose his repeated attacks on the Second Amendment.
Please make these important calls today and let your voice be heard.
