A Guide - How to Testify in Annapolis

Maryland Shall Issue has a handy-dandy guide on how to testify in Annapolis. With the current General Assembly in session and the first gun bills slated to be heard next week, a refresher couldn't hurt!

https://www.marylandshallissue.org/j...y-in-annapolis

The MSI 2018 Legislation Tracker is available here:
https://www.marylandshallissue.org/j...lation-tracker

Attached is this same guide in PDF form for your convenience

Giving this a bump. There are two bills being heard this Wednesday at 1pm in the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee. MSI supports both.
SB0027: Handgun Permit Preliminary Approval
SB0099: Public Safety - Permit to Carry, Wear, or Transport a Handgun - Qualifications

Great stuff DC-W

I will only add if one is planning on testifying, they should plan on being there for many hours as the 'experts' on both sides almost always testify first, before hoi polloi.

If you aren't quite sure of your testimony, those many hours can be profitably used to research and refute some of the more outlandish "expert" testimony from the other side. Just be sure to use creditable sources and have them at hand. You don't want to be like the poor MOM who cited Facebook as her source a few years ago.

Ive only seen a handful of bills on the schedule - far fewer than last year. I was also looking for the Howard County delegation bills (including one for deer hunting) and it does not look like they have been submitted yet.

I cannot recall what the deadline is for filing bills, but I think a lot of bills will be dribbling in and scheduled over the next few weeks.

Sage advice. It’s as if you’ve done this stuff before or something...

You’ll be missed! TX is lucky to have you!
