Please Call Your State Legislators Today!
Maryland’s assault weapon ban legislation is back, along with a new proposal titled “Assault Weapon Tax.”
Your State Legislator needs to hear from you today!
The following bills have already been introduced:
Senate Bill 43, “Assault Weapon Ban of 2007,” sponsored by Senator Michael Lenett (D-19), would designate specified firearms, including many semi-automatics as “assault weapons,” prohibit persons from transporting possessing, selling, offering to sell, transferring, or receiving a specified “assault weapon(s),” and require the Handgun Roster Board to compile and maintain a roster of prohibited specified “assault weapons.”
House Bill 441, sponsored by Delegate Craig Rice (D-19), the “Assault Weapon Tax,” would impose a 10% tax on the sale of an “assault weapon.”
Contact your State Senator and State Delegate today and urge him or her to OPPOSE SB 43 and HB 441!
