Maryland: Governor Hogan Signs Pro-Gun Bill into Law

Yesterday, Maryland Governor Larry Hogan signed House Bill 312 into law.  Sponsored by Delegate Sid Saab (R-33) and state Senator Michael Hough (R-4) respectively, HB 312 and its companion bill, Senate Bill 208, repeal the redundant requirement that an applicant for a renewed wear and carry permit submit fingerprints again.  This helps to reduce cost as well as the time needed to renew a permit.

Thank you to NRA members and Second Amendment supporters who contacted their lawmakers and the Governor in support of this important legislation. Special thanks to bill sponsors, Delegate Saab and state Senator Hough.  Also, thank you to Governor Hogan for signing HB 312 into law.
