Massachusetts: Conference Committee Retains Egregious Anti-Gun Provision

Unfortunately, as predicted, the conference committee tasked with ironing out the differences between the House and Senate versions of an omnibus firearms bill adopted a report which still retains the most egregious provision, allowing issuing authorities to use discretion in issuing or denying FID cards.  House Bill 4376 was reported by the conference committee late last night, and with less than 24 hours left in the legislative session, H.4376 is expected to be voted on sometime TODAY.

Maryland Update: Governor Holds Press Conference Today, Releases Further Details of Anti-Second Amendment Agenda

Anti-gun Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley’s (D) statement outlining gun control proposals on January 14 was a cause of alarm to all law-abiding residents in the Old Line State, and his press conference today only confirms that he is more interested in politics that target the law abiding than responsible governing to limit crime.  O’Malley will be pushing a broad gun control package through the Maryland General Assembly soon, which will include attacks on your Second Amendment rights and hunting heritage that O’Malley claims are “common sense.”  However, these anti-gun proposals have been tried in the past as an easy “solution” – and have been proven resounding failures across the country. Despite this, O’Malley continues to loudly advocate for these same failed proposals and ignore simple reality.  Criminals simply do not obey gun bans, register their firearms or comply with any gun control schemes.   As a result, only law-abiding citizens will comply and be  left defenseless.  The following misguided policies can be found in O’Malley’s extremist gun control package:
