Just a quick reality check

First off, I moved here from Commiefornia eight years ago. When I lived there I was active on the CA version of MDS, CalGuns.

This is important to mention because in the eight years hence CA and MD have traded places as far as 2A rights.

For instance, in CA it is illegal to carry a handgun in your car for any illegal purpose(self defense is legal). In MD it is illegal all the time except for specific things (going to a competitive shooting even, displaying your collection, etc)

Currently, due to the fact that county sheriffs are responsible for granting CCWs, and some are pro 2A, it is much MUCH easier to get a CCW in CA than MD. Some of the sherriffs see "self defense" and "constitutionally protected right" as good and substantial reasons for issue.

CA and MD both have a moritorium on assault weapons(whatever those are), except CA never banned clones. In fact, with the proper cosmetic modifications, you can own a pencil/GI barrel AR in CA, as long as it is featureless.

In fact, the only thing that MD does better than CA at is ownership of standard capacity magazines, and purchasing ammunition.

Pathetic.

Oh you don't have to go as far as California . DC and Maryland have also inverted in terms of relative recognition of the people's Second Amendment rights (albeit dragged kicking and screaming by the courts).

I have heard as such, but haven't (thankfully) experienced NYC levels of anti-freedom.

Yes, we are wannbe-California. It's where our evil pols get most of their ideas from the brilliant minds of Pelosi, Feinstein and Brown, including the fact that cosmetic features somehow make a firearm more dangerous.

If you want to go one-for-one with how stupid Maryland laws are versus Cali laws I could play but what's the point? In the end the "this is evil" "that is not evil" game isn't about safety, 2A or "the children" it's about nickel and dimeing away what you can "legally" possess until they think they have achieved a general ban.

I think what he is saying, is that MD is worse than CA and that we are, now, what all anti2a states are trying to emulate.
