Maryland --(Ammoland.com)- The 2014 Associated Gun Clubs of Baltimore (AGC) candidate survey has revealed that the majority of the candidates know little about key provisions of Maryland law.

Even more disturbing is that most pro 2A incumbents answered incorrectly.

Overall, challengers out-performed incumbents on the following question:

Do you believe that the police have a legal obligation to protect individual citizens from attacks by criminals?

Incumbents responded:

  • 75% yes.
  • 21% no
  • 3% uncertain

Challengers responded:

  • 65% yes
  • 33% no
  • 2% uncertain

Overall results:

  • 68% yes
  • 29% no
  • 2% uncertain

According to Mark Bowen of the Maryland Attorney General’s office:

The Maryland State Police is charged, in Article 88B, Section 3 of the Annotated Code with “the general duty to safeguard the lives and safety of all persons within the State, to protect property, and to assist in securing to all persons the equal protection of the laws.”

However, the Maryland Court of Appeals has determined that police do not have a duty to protect individual citizens from the actions of other citizens absent a special relationship between the police and the victim or the police and the offender. See Ashburn v. Anne Arundel County, 306 Md. 617 (1986)
