Maryland: Attend Rally and Testify in Support of Your Rights!

On Wednesday, March 8, the Maryland Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee will hold their “Gun Day” hearings, previously reported here.  NRA is partnering with the Maryland State Rifle and Pistol Association, Maryland Shall Issue, and the Associated Gun Clubs of Baltimore to host a pre-hearing rally on Lawyer’s Mall at 10 am. 

There will be presentations from the Maryland Second Amendment organizations and our friendly legislators are invited to share a few words of wisdom as they leave the morning’s floor proceedings. The agenda for the day is as follows:

9:00am – Arrive in Annapolis, please go immediately to the Senate Judicial Proceedings Chamber in the Miller Senate office building to sign up to testify on the various bills being heard that day. For a list of bills, please click here

10:00am – Gather at Lawyer’s Mall

10:15am – Noon presentations from Second Amendment organizational leaders and Legislators

Noon – Grab a quick lunch in town and head to the Senate Judicial Proceedings chambers for hearings to begin at 1pm

1:00pm – Bill hearings in the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee

Please plan to bring 16 copies of any written testimony you plan to submit to the committee.  Each copy should be clearly marked with your name and the bill number.  Oral testimony will be limited, generally to 3 minutes per person.

The state capitol is a business formal environment, so please dress accordingly as you are able.  Be aware that the legislative complex is a gun-free zone.  If you are permitted to carry a concealed firearm in Maryland, you will not be allowed to do so on Lawyer’s Mall or in the state office buildings.  In the case of inclement weather, outdoor plans will be canceled.

Any signs you plan to bring may not be attached to sticks or poles, per Maryland Capitol Police.  Please click the RSVP button above to let us know that you are coming, and we hope to see you there!
