Well, if they have been solving cold cases using DNA data bases like 23 and Me and Ancestry, I am pretty sure they will keep records too.

As I have said before in the past and I will say again here, there is not enough of us here in the Democratic People's Republic to changes these laws or elected officials in Annapolis. The only way we can hopefully do something is 1) register as a Democrat and try to primary the people that vote for gun control...many of these Reps and Senators get by on a few votes and if enough people primary them you can let them know they lost because they voted against the 2nd. 2) Give money to help litigate stupid laws. 3) Take someone shooting. You don't have to be a hunter to go out and shoot a 22 at a target. Take your kids or grandkids. Set up the spinning targets, they'll love it. This is our best bet, play spoiler, support legal action, education.

to have a sliver of a chance there might need to be more organization among those of use throughout the state with interest in retaining our rights guaranteed by the constitution. As I see it, anytime there is legislation proposed to further infringe 2A, our lawmakers are immediately inundated with support because those in favor of govt control all march in lock step and react in an immediate and emotional fashion. Example Moms With Rage Against 2A links to LBGTQRZ, links to Sierra Club, links to Socialism Now!, links to etc etc in immediate mutual support . Whereas we are busy working to support our families ( or fishing ) and maybe check into MD Shooters once in a while and maybe find out too late some legislation is being voted on tomorrow.

Probably to have a fighting chance at any influence, someone should invent a unifying message platform that would link mdshooters with people who have/had hunting license, Shall issue ..etc etc so when some law is proposed, more of us know about it sooner and can at a minimum express our view to legislators. For all I know a state senator might hear from 1000 gun hate people for every 10 rational hunters, sportsmen 2A protectors

This isn't just about guns..our enemies on the left (and regardless how you feel, they ARE our enemies) want to replace our current free market economy with socialism, they want to control us from cradle to grave and they want a monopoly on power..none of which they can do without permission from the American gun owner..so bury your heads in the ground all you'd like. .they are still coming for your guns and your freedom. .if you are not actively pushing back you're part of the problem..
Think of it this way:

2A is the canary in the coal mine.

The Leftists/Socialists/Communists/Tyrants are picking on us because we are visible. We make a lot of noise when we shoot, we get gallons of ink and air time when there's a shooting, and wear funny clothes. When they are completely done with us (see England; especially Londonistan) they will bear down on the other amendment the bulk of the free world does not explicitly have, the 1A. This is already happening, BTW.

And yes, it SUCKS to be right...

1a infringement already has the hollywood crowd and media following along

These tweets from time ago
https://www.google.com/search?q=kevi...w=1920&bih=922

Let to this
https://www.washingtonpost.com/arts-...=.a8644d813ed2


how many gun/shooting/instructional/discussion youtube channels have been demonitized?

how many people who oppose the left have been shadow banned from social media?

Regardless of what anyone thinks about infowars the fact that google, youtube, twitter, etc all banned it at the same time shows the collusion and power of the hollywood/media power. I'm not talking about like or dislike of infowars. I'm talking about the power of the left to control content.

If we all know facebook uses our info in a way we dont like, but we all continue to use facebook, then the issue is us. We as a people seem to be weak in standing together and for example deleting facebook. We have the power, not them. We have no power individually, but we do collectively.

The fact that the agenda can be pushed harder on one side and silenced on another side when it comes to forms of media/social media is scary. But as long as we all use their platforms and keep our accounts moving forward they make their money and continue doing what they do.

Tbh, the world was a much better place before social media.



Point I'm making is that the more 1a that they sensor the easier it makes it to get out their message about 2a and gain support for their cause. People have gotten way to pc to the point that your wrong if you dont have a leftist opinion and you are not free to have an opposing view. Your wrong if you voice that now a day.

Real suggestion vs. just whining

It took me awhile to read past all the whining (and before you all flame me, read on) about this.

Whining is never going to effect change.

So, here's IMHO a practical way to effect change, albeit indirectly:

Push 2A folks, independents, Democrats and even gun grabbers in MD on an issue that *everyone* should be behind:

-fix the gerry mandering of voting districts in MD

WITHOUT even mentioning 2A as an issue!

Here's why:

- first, having a representative body that truly represents their constituents is what democracy is supposed to be about

- if gerry mandering of MD is fixed, there is likely (not guaranteed) that enough people in MD will be more likely to elect representatives friendly to 2A

Anyone that says they are for gerry mandering is a true traitor to our country, anywhere on the political spectrum. Our country is founded on having our elected folks represent their citizens.

I agree, I will not comply. I truly believe, we need to replace the government by any means necessary.

Based on your reply above, I see you are just another Maryland malcontent like us, grousing about are situation. I am overly cynical, and likely read many of your post the wrong way.

Maybe post in what county you live, we often try to have events, and meet-ups.

Thank you for your service (Ooh-rah!!!)

Welcome.

Thanks for the welcome Guys.

Thanks for the idea, I'll update my profile.

I'm from the Baltimore County area. Office in Columbia but travel to the different counties for work from time to time, I'd say, probably about an hour in any direction.
