MGA Senate JPR jumping on 2021 Session

Not exclusively 2A, but Chairman Smith is holding hearings in the interim on bills that are NOT YET OFFICIAL (meaning, they have not been presented to the Full Senate in a live hearing of the full body after the full body has been gaveled into session).


Next week's attack is on the Maryland Law Enforcement community; what comes next? Who knows...


Start watching the regular Annapolis crab wrappers, as I bet we start seeing more attacks on our rights outside of session, so that they can move bills quickly once the session gavels in...

Public disclosure of officer personnel records? What do they think that is going to solve?

Until we see the actual contents of the bill, we will not know.


If they are similar to past attempts:
  1. Open records of all disciplinary actions, even if the investigated incident is determined to be "unfounded".
  2. Automatic assumption of guilt with malice aforethought simply because "well, they're cops".
It's funny - the Maryland Pattern Jury Instructions - Criminal Section 2:04 state that deliberations are solely made on the evidence presented at trial. So, if we were on a jury and knew about the prior or additional currently charged, but not convicted, criminal activities of a defendant, we would be required to ignore them. However, under prior attempts at these bills, the "unfounded" investigations of LE complaints could and would have been considered a pattern of evidence of malfeasance on the part of LE.


I am really starting to despise living in this shithole.

I've been watching for activity as well. We had Del. Atterbeary's police reform working group this summer. The critters are frustrated and restless. Nothing good comes from that.

Most of the new gun owners I've talked to (and there are a lot!) are sympathetic to police reform.

If we are smart people will stay away from these divisive issues and focus squarely on direct attacks on the rights of all the new gun owners out there. Most of whom have different politics, skin color, and dont hero-worship police (and in fact have had negative experiences). If we have an opinion about something thats not directly 2a related, my suggestion is to STFU. Embrace brethern who disagree on topics like police reform.

Overall the number of new gun owners is huge, which will likely be good for 2A rights in Maryland. The #1 issue is concealed carry. If we cannot capitalize on the wave of new gun owners who will demand CCW, we all suck.


The good news is that the politicians are clueless. This years goal IMO should be to get new gun owners to write a letter to their critter.

I love winter... The Maryland General Assembly is really trying to make me hate it.

That makes way too much sense. Let's try to keep medical marijuana, Planned Parenthood and mandatory masks mixed up in our 2A arguments. (Sarcasm sign)

Some people are only here because they want to argue with someone or anyone.

Here is a better link to the BS that they are proposing.
Just click on the links in each bill's summery.
