    PUBLIC SAFETY-RIFLES AND SHOTGUNS-TRANSACTIONS.
    I haven't posted here in a very long time. FYI - this is the dangerous bill that we all have kept our collective heads in the sand about. The "black rifles" aren't enough. Unless I have missed something, I don't see any discussion about Senate Bill 737/House Bill 786. Hearings are Fed 25 in the House and Feb 27 in the Senate. Anyone here hunt with a shotgun? Goose? Deer? Duck? Turkey? How 'bout trap, skeet, sporting clays? We can't ignore this one.

    Thanks,

    Wendy

    Off the Maryland Shall Issue website:
    If you are a gun owner who resides or could reside in Maryland, your rights are under attack like never before. The Maryland General Assembly has put forth a series of egregious bills this session and we ask you to HELP US fight them! Not only do we need self-defenders, but also hunters, competitors, tinkerers, and recreational shooters, as the legislature has declared all of us public enemy number one!

    Not content with making the lives of handgun owners miserable, now they are after the hunters and long guns. Bill SB737 was just introduced and that bill requires anyone desiring to purchase or "receive" a long gun obtain a LONG GUN QUALIFICATION LICENSE! Highly similar to the Handgun Qualification License, this license will require 4 hours of training and fingerprinting and ban any person from receiving a long gun without having first applied to the State Police for this LGQL. Even after getting an LGQL, a purchaser would also have to wait 7 days before picking up their long gun, and the bill would limit them to a single long gun purchase per month! Additionally, anyone who moves into the state will be required to register their long guns within 90 days of establishing residency! And there are loads of severe criminal penalties for those who fail to comply for any reason.

    I will be there on the 25th. We all need to flood the State House and make our voices heard.
