Time: 1:00 p.m.
Address: Joint Hearing Room
                  Legislative Services Building

You are encouraged to attend and speak against any proposed regulations that will infringe upon your Right to Keep and Bear Arms.  Some of the misguided proposals include:

  • Regulated firearms that have been confiscated for illegal transfer or possession must be destroyed
  • $50 handgun qualification license application fee
  • Live fire training requirement to receive handgun qualification license
  • Social Security number is required to be listed on handgun qualification license application

Please keep in mind that testimony at this hearing will be strictly limited to the content of the regulations, not SB 281 itself.  Click here to view more details.

You are also invited to attend a gathering of Second Amendment supporters at 11:00 a.m. on Lawyers’ Mall in Annapolis before this public hearing. Pro-gun state legislators and activists will provide updates and information at this event on the continuing fight for your rights in Maryland.
