Victory in Maryland: “Lost or Stolen” Bill Defeated in Committee!

Monday, March 17, 2008

Please Thank the Members of the House Judiciary Committee Today! 

Last week, House Bill 880, authored by State Delegate Curt Anderson (D-43) at the request of the Baltimore City Administration, was defeated by a vote of 18 to 4 in the State House Judiciary Committee. 

HB880 would have required the owner of a regulated firearm (handgun or so called “Assault Weapon”) to report its loss or theft to a local law enforcement agency within 72 hours after the owner discovers the firearm is missing.   Failure to report the loss or theft of a firearm within the allotted time would have been punishable up to 90 days in jail.

Please contact the members of the committee that voted to defeat this legislation and thank them for defending your Second Amendment rights.
