ILA | Maryland: Senate Committee Hearing Scheduled on Wednesday to Consider Anti-Gun Bills

[ad_1]

On Wednesday, February 28, the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee is scheduled to consider two anti-gun bills.  Please contact committee members and strongly urge them to OPPOSE Senate Bill 707 and Senate Bill 860.


Senate Bill 707 makes it a crime to knowingly possess a “rapid fire trigger activator” or a device that is designed or functions to accelerate the rate of fire of a semi-automatic firearm.  The broad and overreaching provisions in this legislation could potentially criminalize firearm modifications such as competition triggers, and ergonomic changes that are commonly done by law-abiding gun owners to make their firearms more suitable for self-defense, competition, hunting, or even overcoming disability.

Senate Bill 860 would ban the loaning of firearms between individuals by defining it as a transfer and requiring a background check for every instance where a loan occurs. 

Again, please contact members of the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee and urge them to Oppose Senate Bill 707 and Senate Bill 860.
