Proposed Ban of Mags over 10 capacity: kill HB 991/SB 1062

Sent today to my House reps & Senator:

Folks:
I respectfully request that you actively work to oppose and kill House Bill 991/Senate Bill 1062: Weapon Crimes – Detachable Magazines and Regulated Firearms – Possession. Hopefully it will never make it out of committee, however if it does it should be killed in the House/Senate vote. The legislative act of making the mere POSSESSION of standard and extended capacity fire arms magazines illegal is absurd. Similar restrictions have already been struck down in New York and California.

In my opinion this bill is simply grandstanding by the representatives of crime-ridden Baltimore city. It does nothing to further safety in the city of Baltimore (or the State of Maryland) since the local Baltimore criminals do not obey laws to begin with. When caught and prosecuted, the swinging door justice system quickly puts them back on the street.

The bill serves no useful purpose other than to further impinge on the 2nd amendment rights of LAW ABIDING citizens of the entire state of Maryland… This bill instantly makes a new class of criminals out of legitimate firearms owners.

As a voter, constituent, and contributor I will be carefully watching the progress and hopefully the demise of this ill-founded bill.

Thank you for your support,
