    I contacted my Delegate David Vogt requesting that the following bills from last year be re-introduced. What are your thoughts?

    1) HB432 Public Safety - Handgun Permit - Applicant Qualifications Repeal the "Good and Substantial Reason"

    2) HB0767 Public Safety - Permit to Carry, Wear, or Transport a Handgun - Qualifications Specifically identify "Self Defense" as a valid "Good and Substantial Reason"

    Any additions? Thanks in advance,

    I believe Sheriff Gahler is submitting something like HB432, although he did not contact MSI for input.

    HB767 is moot as Personal Protection is already listed as one of the G&S reasons. We are working to get MSP to stop asking for the details they have been asking for.

    Someone else will be along to offer more detail.

    Yes, PLEASE reintroduce these bills. Maryland has to allow its citizens to protect ourselves. BOTTOM LINE:

    Would Maryland prefer someone who has gone through background checks and fingerprinting and found to be a law abiding citizen to have a weapon for protection of life and property or continue he current SAFE FREE zones for criminals?

    NO law is going to prevent gun crimes. Criminals are going to follow the law anyway..........

    Medical Marijuana and Guns

    With the recent changes in Maryland law concerning medical marijuana, see MD Code, Health - General, § 13-3304 et seq., and the push to legalize the use of marijuana in Maryland, a recurring issue is how such marijuana use would affect your Second Amendment rights.  The short answer is that it may well act to abrogate those rights by (1) barring a FFL from selling a firearm to such a user and (2), by making such a user a prohibited person under federal law.
