Tomorrow, the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee is scheduled to vote on Senate Bill 208, legislation that criminalizes the private transfer of long guns in Maryland. Please contact committee members and ask them to OPPOSE Senate Bill 208.
Senate Bill 208 / House Bill 4 bans the sale or transfer of long guns between private individuals without first paying fees and obtaining government permission. Firearm sales between friends, neighbors, or fellow hunters, would not be exempted. Research shows this proposal will have no impact on violent crime in Maryland.
Please contact members of the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee and ask them to OPPOSE Senate Bill 208.
