Md AWB details

Is my Google fu weak, I can't find anything on the details for the proposed AWB. I own an AR and am wondering what will happen. Will I be ok or will even the possession of the AR be illegal?

Another thing, if one acquires a 30 round mag for a firearm in another state they can possess it in md as of today right? Or should said person melt it down and make a sad sad little statue to remember the good old days.


This is all getting pretty silly.

They haven't given us anything in writing yet regarding an AWB.

HB 107 has been introduced (limit mags to 10 rounds). My guess is that it will be a few bills that collectively make the AWB because some moderate Dems don't like the proposed licensing requirement and we all know MD would rather have some stricter gun laws (multiple bills) than one failed gun law (one AWB bill).

I really have no idea though and this is just a guess.

I'd say this is a good guess. They'll break it down into smaller, specific bills for each thing and try and overwhelm us. I could see a bill banning pistol gripped rifles, a bill banning flash hiders, that type of crap.

You can legally possess 30 round mags in MD.

Don't worry about possible proposed future restrictions ... instead contact your Delegate and Senator and ask them to oppose such.

If you do this, you won't have to worry about "what if"

We beat a gas tax increase and a bunch of other taxes by contacting our reps last year. Do the same thing with 2A issues and get the same results!

AFAIK, at this point it's all feel-out-the-opposition bluster.

I'm sure something is being put together, but the more vocal we are, the greater the chance they'll either:

Put something out as a token, or
Put up a hail Mary, shooting for the stars.

remember, the anti's will get to testify during the good hours. We will have to testify late at night or early in the morning. Tactics used before for other things. If they allow us in at 1:00 a.m. and no one is there, they'll say we had our chance. They will do this to every bill they introduce.

Not necessarily.

Last year, in the HJC, we had the floor the whole day. The only "anti" testimony while I was there was from MSP, which couldn't find their ass, FTMP.

Good to hear.
As far as MSP, if the Colonel was the anti, has to agree with the Gov if he wants to keep his job.

This year expect to see a summary of any Anti group who has testified over the past 5 years or so, plus a new upstart or two. Should take about an hour.

State Police
Brady Group
Hopkins Prof
The four "Wisemen" Religious leaders
A lady who lost her LEO father in a shooting 15 years ago

Norton can probably put names to the above.

Still no bill text, a full 3 days after omalley promised to release it.

I think they are floundering a bit. They made promises I don't think they can keep. The only reason to hold it this long is to negotiate something that would pass. Keep up the pressure folks. If it goes past Wednesday, they gotta go through the rules committee as well as judiciary.

This is the AWB. Notice semi-auto handguns are being referred to as an assault weapon.
This is very extreme.

I believe the Federal AWB will be announce tomorrow on the 24th of Jan.

Please correct me if I am wrong ---- the proposed State Law and the Federal AWB expected to be introduced in the coming day bans future transfers. So that basically means when I kick the bucket it will be illegal for my son to possess any of my firearms and thus they all have to be relinquished. So the government isn't taking away my guns now but will be taking them upon death. At that rate within the next 50 years there will be no modern firearms.

16 hours of training added to ccp. Registration of the weapons listed. Threaded barrels now make pistols "assault" pistols. And I'm gonna have to read all of the magazine restrictions again just to make sure they make any damned sense.
