Hogan

While many are upset that Governor Hogan has not done more for the 2A community, he has to walk a very balanced line to be reelected in Maryland. It is not just a reliably blue state, but deep blue.

While it would be good to see more attention and action from him on 2A issues, we have to look at the long game here. Hogan will not be able to ram anything down the throats of the legislature due to it being overwhelmingly Democrat.

I am hoping that once he wins reelection, he will start to publicly support 2A rights. Again, we need to look at the long game so that we can actually see real change.

I know that many believe that we have waited long enough, but consider what we have had to work with for so long. Let's give Hogan a chance after the election to see what he will do. It is a no brainer that he is better than Jealous.

Hogan DID give attention and action to 2A issues this session . The issue is the type of action .

So Hogan could just be blown off by MGA if he puts in an actual representative plan , or he can submit a plan that is largely what the Dems want anyway so he can claim to be friendly and bipartisan .
I'm hoping that he will use some of his built up political capital to shame the Democrats if they refuse to act.

This is where the Strive for 5 comes in so important. Unset 5 Democrats in the Senate and he can veto their partisan plan.

They're already taxing it either way.

According to some here, not voting for either is a better idea.

Folly to be sure.

What has he done to give you any hope whatsoever that he will support 2A? Hope is lost on Hogan to do that. Hogan is a loser. I do not like him.

I would never in a million years vote for a democrat, socialist, progressive, marxist, communist, or flavor/mix thereof, so Jealous is out.

My question is this: Could I vote for a gun control supporting RINO like Hogan?

My answer in the past has always been "Not knowingly". Therefore, should I change my principles for the likes of Hogan? More and more I'm saying NO. Montgomery Brewster is looking better every day..

For those who look at this election as a single issue, keep in mind that there are more at stake then the 2A. As reported on wbal the next governor will be selecting 5 of 7 judges to the highest court in MD. While I don't think that Hogan is a 2A supporter, I do think he provide better Judges for any 2A case that may be heard.
