Possession of a handgun in Baltimore could soon come with one year mandatory prison

Isn't this a preemption issue? Can they do this?

without seeing the bill, it is impossible to determine what they are talking about. bare illegal possession with one year mandatory is a bad idea. simply possessing a firearm with no criminal record and getting a year mandatory does nothing for the city or maryland. is this really the problem in baltimore, otherwise lawful citizens possessing firearms? are you telling me all the murders and violence being committed are by non prohibited persons?

Baltimore City Proposes New Gun Bill

JULY 14, 2017
The Baltimore City Council unveiled a draft copy of a new gun bill which would apply to Baltimore City ONLY. If the bill passes, persons convicted of possessing a handgun in Baltimore City, without a permit to wear and carry a handgun, will be subject to a mandatory 1 year prison sentence AND and $1,000 fine. The court would not be permitted to suspend any part of the penalty nor could it give probation before judgement. Persons convicted would not be eligible for parole. As written, the proposed bill could violate Maryland's preemption statute.

The really bizarre thing is that the law will only apply within 100 yards of a park, church, school, public building or other place of public assembly. Even worse, it applies not only to carrying on your person but also to your vehicle. In theory, unless you can somehow prove that you are on your way to or from the range, etc., you could spend a year in prison for simply driving within 100 yards of any of the listed places.

Click here for the article: http://www.wbaltv.com/article/city-o...ssion/10306811

Click here for the draft text of the bill and supporting document.

In a related story, Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee Chairman, Bobby Zirkin indicated that he might support a statewide minimum 5 year sentence for persons convicted a second time for for carrying a handgun without a permit to wear and carry a handgun.

Does this include all the thugs that are shooting people everyday? Then you have all the "I ain't gots no money so I can't afford bail so therefore you gotta let me go or I'm discriminated against" people. Should just stop the catch and release that Baltimore AND DC are doing.
