The National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action (NRA-ILA) sued the state of Maryland on Tuesday after an unconstitutional bill was signed making carry illegal in so much of the state that a law-abiding individual cannot effectively carry for self-defense.
“Here are some sad facts: the mere mention of the word Baltimore invokes an immediate vision of a violent, unsafe city. That's because of the woeful lack of prosecution of violent criminals in the state. It is vital for law-abiding Marylanders to have an effective means of defending themselves and their loved ones. Our laws should burden criminals and aid good, lawful people. It is evident that those in power in Maryland care more for criminals and less for the law-abiding,” said Randy Kozuch, executive director, NRA-ILA.
