NEWTOWN, Conn --(Ammoland.com)- NSSF on Wednesday testified in opposition of Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley’s gun-control legislation (SB 281).

The state Senate Judiciary Committee hearing drew thousands of gun owners to Annapolis in opposition of this far-reaching gun-control package.

The firearms industry was well represented by Maryland retailers, manufacturers and ranges. Beretta USA General Counsel Jeffrey Reh addressed concerns about the bill’s potential impact on Accokeek, Md.-based Beretta. Unfortunately, the Senate committee alotted only eight hours of testimony despite more than 1,000 people signing up to testify.

The battle in Annapolis will continue for weeks as this bill and many others will be debated. NSSF will continue to be on the ground in the state and will keep our members posted. More about NSSF’s testimony in The Washington Post.

    1. Never give an inch to these gun grabbers. Email your elected officials and tell them we voted them in and can vote them out. The whole country is behind you. If we have to fight for the next 4 years, we will. If we have to fight a revolution, we will!!! We ain’t going away!!!!!!Let the bleeding heart liberals cower while the criminals kill them and their families. Anyone who won’t protect themselves or their family deserve what they get.
