NRA – ILA

Charlotte, NC --(Ammoland.com)- Recently, the Maryland House of Delegates passed Senate Bill 231 by a 120 to 9 vote.

Sponsored by state Senator George Edwards (R-1), SB 231 would allow bowhunters, who are otherwise authorized to carry a handgun, to carry a handgun for protection while hunting in Deer Management Region A.  While afield, bowhunters are vulnerable to outdoor crime and dangerous wildlife, and should be allowed to carry a firearm for protection.

Having passed in the state Senate by a 43 to 2 vote on February 12, SB 231 now goes to Governor Martin O’Malley (D) for his consideration.

The NRA thanks Senator Edwards, and Delegate Wendell Beitzel (R-1A), the sponsor of SB 231’s companion bill, House Bill 262; as well as every state legislator who voted for SB 231.

      Exactly what does “who are otherwise authorized to carry a handgun” mean? If it means if you don’t have any legally disqualifications, that’s fine. If it means you must already posses a Md. CHP then it’s a worthless piece of legislation as Maryland State Police (MSP) are as close to a fiefdom, answerable only to themselves as you can get.

      I wanted to become a “licensed” instructor in Md. so I could teach the Md. CHP course and teach security guards etc. I’m an NRA Inst. and tactical pistol inst. (35 yrs.). MSP told me I would have to send them a minimum of 12 months of my student records, everything, names, addresses, all personal info. I told them to pound salt. I don’t have the money to sue them for invasion of privacy on this one but someone should.
