Great Job in testifying at the hearing. I wish I could have been there to see and hear all of your. I pray the dems all had open ears and understand the consequences
of this terrible bill.

resource: testimony quoting ACLU criticisms of over-reaching "red flag" bills

I am attaching the written testimony that I submitted in opposition to the House-passed version of HB 1302, for the March 23 Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee hearing, at which I also made a two-minute presentation. Much of the verbiage in my written testimony was focused on the empowerment of "any other interested person" to file a petition for an "interim extreme risk prevention" order. As others have already reported above, some prominent proponents of the legislation were walking away from that provision during the hearing. However, even if "any other interested person" is stricken, there would remain provisions that would be subject to abuse, and constitutional problems. Regarding these, some may find good use for some of the material that I included in the attached written testimony, including quotes from the California ACLU in opposition to a "red flag" bill that was subsequently vetoed by Gov. Jerry Brown (D) in 2016, and quotes from the Rhode Island ACLU against a "red flag" bill currently pending in that state's legislature.

Why didn't we all include our screen names when mingling. I wish I could put a face to the screen names who were there. I only recognized 6-7 of you.
I was the 46yo, 6'4", WM, glasses, maroon shirt/jeans and "It Happened To Me" testimony.

I got an earful from the President of Maryland Shall Issue about this legislation. Wow! First Maryland bans scores of different types of guns. Now they are trying to confiscate guns with out due process. This is scary stuff that sounds like it came out of some bad science fiction novel. I am definitely writing letters.

Thank you to all that provided testimony against this bill. I watched the proceedings this morning for over 3 hours.
