Guns in the 2019 session

I did some searching and didn't see that anyone made a thread about this legislative session yet. I also didn't see anything about this year's gun-bill-day organizing, soooo I hope something is in the works for that. Anyway here's the bills I'm seeing so far. Benson's bill seems pretty bad. Hopefully we can squash it and anything resembling it with a strong showing in annapolis, around the state, and on social media. I'll try to keep up with this thread and toss bills in this first post as they pop up.
House Legislation
HB-31 Delegate Glenn-D. Withdrawn 2-4-19
http://mgaleg.maryland.gov/webmga/fr...b=01&ys=2019RS
Quote:
Providing that the prohibition on carrying or possessing a firearm, knife, or deadly weapon of any kind on public school property does not apply to a school resource officer who is assigned to a public school in Baltimore City and is on public school property in Baltimore City.

HB-95 Delegate Dumais. Unfavorable withdrawn 3-14-19
http://mgaleg.maryland.gov/webmga/fr...b=01&ys=2019RS
Quote:
Applying certain provisions disqualifying a person from possessing a rifle or shotgun to an antique firearm.
HB-96 Delegate Dumass
http://mgaleg.maryland.gov/webmga/fr...b=01&ys=2019RS
Quote:
Providing that, for certain purposes, the term "transfer" includes a loan other than a temporary gratuitous exchange of a regulated firearm between two individuals who remain in the same location for the duration of the exchange.

HB-342 Delegate Reilly. Unfavorable 3-11-19
http://mgaleg.maryland.gov/webmga/fr...b=01&ys=2019RS
Quote:
Clarifying that personal protection or self-defense can qualify as a good and substantial reason to wear, carry, or transport a handgun for purposes of the issuance by the Secretary of State Police of a permit to carry, wear, or transport a handgun; and declaring the intent of the General Assembly that an amount representing the increase in General Fund revenues, less increased administrative costs, realized from the increased number of permits issued under the Act be included in the annual budget to fund certain school mental health programs.
HB-367 Delegate Solomon. Passed house 3-7-19
http://mgaleg.maryland.gov/webmga/fr...b=01&ys=2019RS
Quote:
Prohibiting a county board of education or public school from spending any money from any source to directly or indirectly provide a teacher with a firearm or train a teacher in the use of a firearm; and providing the Act does not apply to a school-approved sport or club that makes use of firearms.
As an editorial as a teacher, Solomon is directly interfering with a school system's ability to keep children safe. The state needs to get out of the way and allow teachers like me to have a legal pathway to carry at work for the immediate defense of our students, coworkers, and ourselves. It is the only realistic means of reducing the potential damage that happens when a violent criminal decides to attack the people in a school.

There was no mention of the police killing one of the 1302'd citizens. That should tell anyone all they need to know.

I heard they are going to try and bring back the campus gun ban bill. I wouldn't be surprised if they follow DiFi and try to bring an assault weapons ban.

Am I sensing the powers are getting defensive about the law? Damage control?

Damage control for what? The police, media, and Fudds did an amazing job vilifying Mr. Wllis. Their killing of him was justified. I'm surprised they don't lead with his case as a glaring example of the laws success.
