    Maryland - CCW Bill Hearing

    HB2 will be heard before the House Judicial Committee on Tuesday. This bill will remove the "good and substantial" clause from the current language of the law and effectively make MD a shall issue state.

    BILL INFO-2008 Regular Session-HB 2

    From the NRA:

    Maryland Right-to-Carry Legislation to be Considered on Tuesday, January 22!

    Friday, January 18, 2008

    At 1:00 p.m. on Tuesday, January 22 the Maryland House Judiciary Committee will hold a hearing on House Bill 2, sponsored by State Delegate Daniel Riley (D-34A). HB2 seeks to remove language from existing Maryland code requiring that the Secretary of State Police “find a person has good and substantial reason to wear, carry, or transport a handgun, such as a finding that the permit is necessary as a reasonable precaution against apprehended danger.” HB2 would make Maryland a “shall-issue” state.

    The hearing will be held in Room 100 in the House Office Building in Annapolis. Please make plans to attend this important hearing. If you are unable to attend, please contact the members of the House Judiciary Committee and respectfully urge them to support HB2.

    I wish you guys all the luck in the world. Personally, I think Hell will freeze solid long before Maryland goes shall-issue.

    I was doing some work up in Maryland a couple of weeks ago, had to leave my CCW at home. Some of the local guy's n gal's and me went out after work for dinner and the topic turned to CCW, (Ok, I turned the topic to Concealed Carry). The party consisted of about 10 and to a person everyone was anti-gun and at least 2 were border-line lunatic-anti gun. It was stated; "the only people who should be allowed weapons are military and police, guns are bad, so anyone carrying a gun that's not military or police must be bad." No one really wanted to listen to any other point of view and by the time the meal was over I was externally calm, but inside my blood was boiling , so the subject switched to sports (no relief here I'm a Cowboys fan). My take-away here is that the anti-gun groups can be just as stead-fast in their belief as we are and that the anti gun-lobby has a lot of support in Maryland. Good luck Maryland you have my prayers and support.

    Fortunately not everyone is like that.... Mostly Baltimore.

    My thought is even if the passes nothing will change until some one, or a group, ends up filing a court action to force the current administrative structure to just issue.

    I'd like to be proven wrong!

    Wish you MD guys the best of luck. Would be nice to go back to MD again. I still have some old friends and some family on your side of the line. Would be nice to visit my old neighborhoods again (Brooklyn, CurtisBay, and Brooklyn Park areas around Baltimore). As it stands now...I haven't been back in years. The last time I went back home was going on 5 years ago I believe and before that at least 7 or 8 years. Yes, I believe rights are that important...I've left everything behind up to and including friends and family.

    Don't know what I'll do if VA falls to the same commies! I guess I'll have to pack up and move to FL. I still have some friends and a few extended fam members down that way.

    At any rate, Keep us updated on the status of this one. Oh and good luck again...you're going to need it...and lots of support. Do you guys have a MD version of VCDL over there?

    Probably should have mentioned, the past couple years efforts to get "Shall Issue" in Maryland haven't even gotten out of committee.

    I think there's a website or group called Maryland shall issue or something like that.
    I kind of doubt they will pass it,Baltimore and the DC suburbs hold all the power in that state and they are hard core lefties. If they simply let the local sheriffs decide(instead of the MPD) then maybe the western counties could get more CCWers. Then I could apply for out of state in one of those counties.
