I was at my Mom's house tonight helping her to wash her windows, window blinds, curtains, etc. and she asked me if I'd heard about the new gun bill that is waiting for our Gov. to sign. I advised her that I had not heard anything about it.
Apparently Senate Substitute 1 for Senate Bill 29 passed the House Thursday night and was sent to the governor for his signature. This bill would prohibit the possession of a firearm while in a public place. I don't have any idea how they will enforce "public place", as soon as you walk out your front door you are in "public".
First-time violators of this legislation would be guilty of a Class A misdemeanor, subsequent offenses would be guilty of a Class G felony. The bill would not apply if the weapon were secured, disassembled or if the person was not in possession of ammunition.
Our DSP Trooper's Association usually keeps a close watch on any gun legislation and informs both active and retired members should anything be introduced. I didn't see anything regarding this piece of crap, until tonight. Looks like Gov. Markell will have to go next election.
