Correction: SB 737 would require a License to purchase a long gun

House Bill 612 would ban HBAR rifles purchased after 2013. SB 737 would require Long Gun Qualification License to own a long gun.

To Arlington Rifle and Pistol Club,

This year could be worse than 2013 for Maryland Gun owners. Legally purchased HBAR rifles that were purchased after October 1, 2013, would have to be disposed of if SB 612 passes. SB 737 would require everyone to get a Long Gun Qualification License (LGQL). There are other bills that are just as bad that are being submitted by the Maryland General Assembly. I sent out an email earlier today that had the summary of bills from Maryland Shall Issue (MSI). Please go to the links on that email to follow what is going on and learn how we can express our opposition to these bills.

I encourage everyone to participate this year, by writing emails, calling and visiting your representatives and coming to the hearings in Annapolis.

Thank you,

Rob

Maryland: 2019 Legislative Session Begins with a Slew of Anti-Gun Bills Introduced

With the 2019 Maryland Legislative Session underway, gun control groups have made the General Assembly a target for their anti-gun agenda. NRA Members and Second Amendment supporters will need to stay plugged-in because this session is going to be a fight! While numerous bills of concern have been introduced, the following measures require extra attention:

Senate Bill 737, sponsored by Senator Susan Lee, would create “Long Gun Qualification Licenses (LGQL).” Similar to Handgun Qualification Licenses, SB 737 wants to impose the same unnecessary bureaucratic hurdles on purchasing a long gun that Maryland requires for purchasing a pistol. Further, those seeking an LGQL would have to attend 4 hours of training and fingerprinting from the State Police and still have to wait 7 days before acquiring a long gun from a dealer. Scheduled to be heard in the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee on January 27th.

House Bill 612, sponsored by Delegate Julian Ivey, would place popular Colt AR-15 H-BAR rifles on the list of “Regulated Firearms” in Maryland. However, only those rifles owned before October 1, 2013 would be grandfathered into law. Those who purchased or took possession of all other H-BAR rifles after that date would need to remove these firearms from their possession. Scheduled to be heard in the House Judiciary Committee on January 25th.

These two bills are only a few of the measures included on the laundry list of anti-gun bills to hit the General Assembly this year. Stay-tuned to NRA-ILA and our alerts for updates when information and hearings are scheduled.

To Arlington Rifle and Pistol Club,

This Maryland Shall Issue email lists the Maryland Legislative Session’s Gun Bills to date. This year looks to be as bad as 2013.

Major Attack on Gun Owners in Maryland!
If you are a gun owner who resides or could reside in Maryland, your rights are under attack like never before. The Maryland General Assembly has put forth a series of egregious bills this session and we ask you to HELP US fight them! Not only do we need self-defenders, but also hunters, competitors, tinkerers, and recreational shooters, as the legislature has declared all of us public enemy number one!

Not content with making the lives of handgun owners miserable, now they are after the hunters and long guns. Bill SB737 was just introduced and that bill requires anyone desiring to purchase or "receive" a long gun obtain a LONG GUN QUALIFICATION LICENSE! Highly similar to the Handgun Qualification License, this license will require 4 hours of training and fingerprinting and ban any person from receiving a long gun without having first applied to the State Police for this LGQL. Even after getting an LGQL, a purchaser would also have to wait 7 days before picking up their long gun, and the bill would limit them to a single long gun purchase per month! Additionally, anyone who moves into the state will be required to register their long guns within 90 days of establishing residency! And there are loads of severe criminal penalties for those who fail to comply for any reason.

If this law passes, you will need the blessing of the State of Maryland to purchase ANY firearm.

That is just ONE of the horrible laws being passed this session. Another bill, HB 96, would ban temporary "loans" of a handgun to another person, including a spouse or another person in the family in the home. Every such "transfer" would have to go through the State Police using the 77R process and would include the 7-day waiting period. This bill would mean that a person could not leave their handgun accessible to any other person in the home. Each spouse would have to have separate ownership and each would have to have their own gun safe that is inaccessible to anyone else.

If all of the anti-gun laws introduced thus far are passed, here is what you have to look forward to:
* Ban on purchasing any firearm without first paying a fee and obtaining training for a license
* Ban on obtaining any firearm without first waiting 7 days
* Ban on purchasing more than one firearm a month
* Ban of Colt HBAR AR-15 and similar rifles
* Ban of any payment method other than credit cards for permit applications
* Ban of handgun rentals
* Ban on lending handguns or regulated firearms to anyone
* Ban on anyone in your house having access to your guns
* Ban on school programs using lead ammunition
* Ban on the manufacture of any firearm by an individual
* Ban on the possession, reception, or distribution of information on how to manufacture a firearm
