Tuesday, February 17, 2009

Please Contact the House Judiciary Committee Today!

The House Judiciary Committee is scheduled to hear House Bill 359 on Thursday, February 19 at 1:00 p.m. 

HB359, introduced by State Delegates Tony McConkey (R-33A), Jill Carter (D-41), Benjamin Kramer (D-19), Susan McComas (R-35B), and Kriselda Valderrama (D-26), would allow an eligible citizen who has had a temporary or final protective order issued on their behalf to be issued a concealed handgun permit by the Secretary of State Police.

This is a step in the right direction toward ensuring that all law-abiding Marylanders can exercise the Right-to-Carry for self-defense.

Please contact the members of the House Judiciary Committee TODAY and respectfully urge them to support HB359.  Contact information can be found below.
