Maryland General Assembly seeks to assail gun rights

MD Legislature - In Session

Yesterday the House of Delegates agreed on measures that would seize firearms from suspects of protective orders (injunctions). One of the measures would give judges the power to confiscate firearms for temporary injunctions. The Maryland Senate still has not voted on the measures since hearing testimony in February.

Another bill, House Bill 1446, is set for a hearing by the House Judiciary Committee tomorrow. The bill would require a long paper trail and increased police presence for anyone buying and selling firearm ammunition.

The bill is nothing more than de facto gun registration that would make it easier for the government to seize the firearms of law-abiding citizens. It is always criminals who benefit from more gun laws; law-abiding citizens always lose as their rights are restricted making it easier for them to become victims. Criminals don’t adhere to the law anyway so more gun restrictions are pointless. There may even be an increased tax on ammunition that would affect low-income gun owners.

The story continues …..
