pdf.pngRed Flag Bill - HB1302 - Testimony HOT
This proposed legislation (HB1302) is a firearms confiscation bill, commonly referred to as a "red flag" bill. If passed, it would create a new system that would allow “any interested person” to petition a judge for what the bill calls an “extreme risk protection order” by alleging that a person (“the respondent”) poses an “immediate and present danger of causing personal injury” to another person “by possessing a firearm.” While it requires the petitioner to execute the petition under oath, it then grants complete legal immunity to that person from both civil and criminal liability if the petition acts in subjective “good faith.”   “the respondent”  would be required to surrender firearms to law enforcement.

Court Uphold's MD's Taking of Rapid Fire Trigger Activators

 

In a sharply split, 2-1 decision, a panel of the United States Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit has held that Maryland may ban the possession of "Rapid Fire Trigger Activators" by existing owners without paying just compensation under Fifth Amendment or the Maryland Constitution.  The majority ruled that no just compensation was owed to existing, lawful owners because the ban “does not require owners of rapid fire trigger activators to turn them over to the Government or to a third party.”  In short, as far as this majority is concerned, the State is free to ban the possession of any personal property without paying just compensation unless the State puts the property into its own pocket or the pocket of a third party.  If that is the law, then no personal property, of any kind, is safe from the grasping clutches of the General Assembly.  For example, the State could ban possession of your existing car and not pay a dime.  The dissenting opinion ably demolishes the majority's reasoning.  Needless to say, we will be seeking further review.

You can read the ruling HERE.  Stay tuned.
