Maryland “Assault Weapons Ban of 2007” Defeated in Committee!

Friday, March 16, 2007

Last night, March 15, the Senate Judicial Proceeding Committee deadlocked  5 to 5  on the “Assault Weapons Ban of 2007,” which means this anti-gun legislation has died in committee and will likely proceed no further this year. 

Senate Bill 43, “Assault Weapon Ban of 2007,” sponsored by Senator Michael Lenett (D-19), would have designated 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.”
