Maryland: Gov. Hogan Resists Calls to Shut Down Gun Stores

Delegate Vanessa Atterbeary, along with a number of other openly anti-gun legislators, sent a letter to Governor Larry Hogan asking him to reverse his earlier decision acknowledging gun stores as critical businesses during this COVID-19 crisis. They find it “disturbing” that numerous Marylanders are choosing to exercise their right to self-defense for the first time and want Gov. Hogan to shut off access to this constitutional right by closing gun stores.

Gov. Hogan’s office says that he will continue to follow federal guidelines designating gun stores as essential businesses that should remain open during this time of uncertainty.
