Sine Die (midnight, April 10) has come and gone and the 2017 Session of the General Assembly is over. Thankfully. The forces of logic and sense actually did pretty well, considering what was at stake. My thanks go out to the folks and leadership at NRA-ILA, the Maryland State Rifle and Pistol Association, 2A Maryland, the AGC, the Western Maryland Sportsmen's Coalition and the Maryland Hunting Coalition. We all contributed. But most of all I want to thank our membership and others, who stood up and were counted with time, testimony, emails, calls, support, and signs. Thank you for your passion! It is a bond that we all share.
Several of the 2A organizations in our state, along with the NRA showed up in Annapolis to testify against many bills. We have some video from these testimonies one of the more egregious bills this session, HB0159 - Weapon-Free Higher Education Zones. Take a look!
