Call To Arms – The Gun Bill Legislative Season Is Upon Us
Maryland – -(AmmoLand.com)- Gun bill day in Annapolis is March 11. The Judicial Proceedings Committee in both houses of the legislature will simultaneously debate various gun bills starting at 1:00 pm.
This simultaneous hearing procedure is apparently intended to divide by 50% the support of the pro gun constituency.
Therefore, it is critically important that we maximize our participation and attendance in the process this year. It is imperative that you communicate to your legislators your opposition or support of the various bills, as appropriate.
This also means, we need your presence in Annapolis on March 11. We need a larger presence to battle their strategy.
Please remember to dress appropriately. Business casual is acceptable. Be polite and courteous. Do not be confrontational, keep your message concise.
Our legislative representative is partnering with the AGC in reviewing pending gun related legislation. The link here will direct you to the AGC legislative web page where recommendations on the pending bills are provided.

The Maryland State Rifle and Pistol Association (MSRPA) is the flagship Gun Rights organization in and for the State of Maryland. The Association offers both individual and club memberships. Support of the shooting disciplines and legislative activities is primarily through a systems of committees. All participants are volunteers.
In the face of a near tidal wave of citizen disarmament occurring in Maryland, the MSRPA has played a critical part in drawing the line and standing firm for Gun Rights. Without this resistance, things would have been much worse and been so much sooner. Now the objective is to continue to develop new activists with numerous individual skills who will help us bring Maryland into line with the rest of the states which have made strong gains in protecting the Right to Keep and Bear Arms.
