Location: Lawyers Mall Annapolis
The Officers and Directors of the Maryland State Rifle & Pistol Association extend their greetings and hope all our members had a Merry Christmas and that 2015 will be Happy New Year!
Thank you one and all for your marvelous performance in the November election. The promises we made to the general assembly in 2013 about not forgetting who supported us and who didn’t were in many cases borne out by the election results. However, we must not get complacent. We cannot be content to rest on our laurels. Those who would deprive you of your natural rights to defense of hearth and home are not resting and soon will be back in session.
So, having said that, please keep 2A Tuesday (2nd Amendment Tuesday) in mind. This year it is scheduled for Tuesday, February 10th and will be held on Lawyers Mall between the state capitol building and the senate and house office buildings in Annapolis. No, we do not know of any dangerous legislation coming down the pike, but it’s a safe bet that someone from one of those counties and districts (you know which ones) will have some “common sense” gun safety legislation to propose and it’ll be our job to beat it back. One way is for a show of force on 2A Tuesday, not to beat back any specific legislation (although by 2A Tuesday we may know of some already filed), but just to show the general assembly that we’ve been here in force before for bills we really didn’t like, we were here on Nov 4th, we’re here now, and if necessary we’ll keep coming back. We’ll be there on Feb 10th and we hope to see as many of you as can make it there, too!
