Where Do We Go From Here?
Session 2014 is still alive. There are a number of pro and anti 2nd Amendment bills currently in Annapolis.
There is a lone 2A bill being heard in the House Ways and Means Committee, HB 415 on February 14th at 1pm. HB415 adds a layer of complexity to MD Firearms Dealers in reporting their taxes to the state. It also leaves open the door for a possible tax hike on firearms and ammunition.
February 26th will be the Gun Bill Hearing Day in the Senate. View bills being heard in the Senate.
March 4th will be the Gun Bill Hearing Day in the House. View bills being heard in the House.
You can also view a running list of gun bills here.
We are preparing plans of action for these bills; however, in the end, it comes down to your involvement in the process.
New Anti-2A Publication
Be sure to review Voicing Our Values as it contains valuable information on new strategies anti-2a persons are using to try to convince the public they are right.
