Maryland: House Committee Hearing this Friday on Companion to Senate Bill 281

Tuesday, February 26, 2013

This Friday, March 1, the Maryland House Judiciary Committee will be hearing multiple pieces of anti-gun legislation.  Among the legislation being heard is House Bill 294, the companion bill to Senate Bill 281, sweeping anti-gun legislation previously reported by NRA-ILA herePlease note that the hearing time this Friday has been changed from 1:00 pm to noon.  This hearing will be held in the Legislative Services Building. 

Please contact members of the House Judiciary Committee before their meeting this Friday and strongly urge them to oppose HB 294, as well as any anti-gun legislation that hinders a citizen’s right to self-defense.  Also, please sign up to testify in opposition to HB 294.  Signups for testifying will begin at 8:30 a.m. in the main hallway of the House Building.  35 copies are needed for those wishing to submit written testimony, although it is not required that one does so.  Information on giving testimony can be found here.

An anti-gun rally will be held at Lawyers Mall in Annapolis on the same day.  Please avoid this area so as not to add to the numbers of anti-gunners by mistake.  Instead, join us for a number of breakout sessions in the House office building throughout the day.

House Judiciary Committee contact information can be found here.
