MSI's President Testifies in Annapolis against Anti-Gun Bills in 2017 GA

MSI's president, Mark Pennak, testified in Annapolis during a recent senate hearing during General Assembly 2017.

SB946 - This is the "Campus Carry" bill that criminalizes any possession of a firearm on public university property.  As most of Maryland's largest institutions own property not part of the campus facilities, this potentially puts citizens who happen to be on these non-campus locations in jeopardy.  Mark's testimony can be found HERE.

SB224 - This bill changes the definition of a “disqualifying crime” for purposes of imposing a firearms disqualification for second degree assault.  Mark's testimony for this bill can be found HERE.

As always your testimony should be personal but Mark's excellent analysis of these two bills provide much in the way of what you can use in your own written or spoken testimony.
