Maryland ––(Ammoland.com)- Join http://www.vcdl.org/webapps/vcdl/2017leg.html, The Associated Gun Clubs of Baltimore (AGC), The Maryland State Rifle and Pistol Association (MSRPA), The NRA-ILA and fellow Marylander's on Lawyer's Mall in Annapolis, as we continue the process of restoring Maryland to “The Free State.”
Help us continue the momentum of 2013 and 2014, gathering in numbers to defend our Second Amendment rights and exercise our First Amendment rights. The more citizens who make their voices heard, the greater the positive effect in Annapolis and across the country.
The 2015 General Assembly session began for Legislators on January 14 2015. All of these new legislators in Annapolis have never met the 2nd Amendment Community- It's time to introduce yourselves!
Don't forget to use social media to help spread the word! #2ATuesday
General: The event will be centered at Lawyer’s Mall near the Maryland State House and the General Assembly office buildings. The official rally time is 10:00AM – 12:00PM. You are encouraged to seek out and engage your Delegates and Senators throughout the day, and fully participate as a citizen of Maryland.
Lobbying: We will have team leaders available to aid and guide you in meeting and conversing with your district's representatives. You are also welcome and encouraged to meet with your legislators on your own. If you are able to do so, please make an appointment to meet with your representatives. Once you have made your appointment time, or if you need assistance in making an appointment, let us know by sending an email to [email protected]
Transportation: You are encouraged to share a ride, to enable the parking areas to accommodate the numbers of vehicles we are hoping to see. Large groups should consider hiring buses/coaches of an appropriate size.
Goals: This is NOT a protest. This is a gathering of civic-minded second amendment supporters, petitioning their government to uphold constitutional principles. We will take this opportunity to show, through both numbers and words, the impact the 2A community intends to have in the upcoming general assembly session, and the upcoming elections. You should also plan time before or after the rally to visit and speak with your own representatives concerning these issues.
Behavior: This is an opportunity for us, as a community, to dispel the media myths of firearms owners. It has become clear that we need to avoid presenting the images the media so desperately wants to portray. Therefore, we request that there NOT be any firearms, replicas, or facsimiles of firearms present. Maryland law expressly prohibits any firearms at anything that could be deemed a “protest” or “demonstration.” Dress should be professional and should avoid hostile messages. Signs should remain respectful as well.
Miscellaneous: Our groups have developed a good working relationship with the Department of General Services (the good people who maintain/prepare the areas, as well as provide security). It is therefore requested that we show them the respect they are due, thank them for their work, and to clean up after ourselves. Everyone should bring a couple of bags along to police the area throughout the day. Smokers should “field strip” their butts, and dispose of them properly.
