Maryland has become the latest target in the Democrats' hysterical and ill-informed anti-gun crusade.
Following the defeat of 2013 firearms legislation after the bill in question was found by a federal appeals court to violate the Second Amendment, liberals in the state legislature introduced a new measure to infringe on the rights of gun owners. The proposed bill might be even worse than the previously-defeated one.
Brought to the floor of the Maryland legislature by Speaker Michael Busch and Senate President Thomas V. “Mike” Miller Jr., the law will:
- Make it a criminal offense bring guns on state colleges and university grounds
- Grant Maryland State Police power to keep people on the FBI's terror watch list within the state from purchasing guns
- Orders gun owners with domestic violence convictions to surrender their firearms to authorities.
As you might have expected, the bill's supporters have defended these draconian measures as “common sense” solutions to the problem of gun violence. But when one actually looks at these “common sense” solutions, one realizes they are anything but.
