Maryland: House Judiciary Committee to Hear Governor O’Malley’s Extreme Anti-Gun Bill Tomorrow

Thursday, February 28, 2013

Your presence is needed in Annapolis to defeat this attack on the Second Amendment!

Today, the Maryland Senate passed an amended version of Senate Bill 281 by a 28-19 vote.  Despite this setback, the fight to defend the Second Amendment in Maryland is far from over and your active participation is still needed.  The Maryland House Judiciary Committee will be hearing multiple pieces of firearm-related legislation TOMORROW.  House Bill 294, the companion bill to Senate Bill 281, is among the bills being considered  in Committee tomorrow.  Please note that the hearing time tomorrow has been changed from 1:00 pm to noon.

Please contact members of the House Judiciary Committee before their meeting tomorrow!  It is highly recommended that you call these delegates TODAY.  While it may be easier for them to ignore or delete e-mails, they cannot ignore your telephone calls.  Urge them to oppose HB 294, as well as any anti-gun legislation that hinders a law-abiding 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.  70 copies are needed for those wishing to submit written testimony, although it is not required that one submit testimony in writing if they wish to testify.

Additionally, please attend the Second Amendment Freedom Rally next Tuesday, March 5th in Annapolis.  State lawmakers and citizens alike will be speaking at this rally and NRA Grassroots staff will be in attendance.  Plan to attend and take this opportunity to learn how you can join the NRA and other Second Amendment supporters in staying involved.  It is also very important that you sign up to testify before noon for the House committee hearing which at this time is scheduled to begin at 1:00 p.m.

March 5 Second Amendment Freedom Rally

Lawyer’s Mall - Across from the State House at 100 State Circle in Annapolis

 Please arrive by 10:30 a.m. • Program and speakers begin at 11:00 a.m.

Also, the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee has moved its hearing date of additional firearm-related legislation from the original March 5 date to Wednesday, March 6.  Please attend all hearings if possible and continue to voice your opposition to any anti-gun legislation that seeks to limit your right to self-defense.  Information on how to testify for this hearing can be found here.

There will possibly be lines to sign up for testimony but your support and patience is greatly appreciated.  Lawmakers need to know how many law-abiding citizens in Maryland oppose their attempts to take away their rights!  Do not let lawmakers attempt to legislate away your rights without making your voice heard.

Information on giving testimony in the House Judiciary Committee can be found here.

House Judiciary Committee contact information can be found here.
