Washington, DC – -( As if enduring eight years of the rabidly anti-gun Martin O’Malley in the Governor’s Mansion weren’t enough, Maryland gun owners are now contending with at least one avowed gun prohibitionist in the state Attorney General’s Office.

Undercover video (below) of Maryland Deputy Attorney General Thiruvendran Vignarajah, shot by Project Veritas while he was attending a national conference of state attorneys general in New York City, reveals the supposed-public servant’s deep disdain for your rights.

Speaking with an undercover journalist, when asked about what type of gun control regime he would impose, Vignarajah replied, “[m]y complete answer, off the record, is that we should ban guns altogether, period.”

Elaborating, Vignarajah stated, “[i]f you want to go practice with a gun, you can go to the gun range, pick up your gun at the gun range, fire it there, and then you leave it there and you go home.” Vignarajah then goes on to explain a scheme under which he might allow individuals to keep a firearm in the home, subject to an “extensive licensing scheme,” taxation, mandatory insurance, and “fingerprint trigger locks.”

Vignarajah’s comments might prompt one to contemplate the extent to which his radical anti-gun positions permeate the entire Maryland Attorney General’s Office.

After all, his boss, Maryland Attorney General Brian E. Frosh, has been a staunch advocate for gun restrictions since the 1980s. In 2013, while chairman of the Maryland State Senate’s Judicial Proceedings Committee, Frosh pushed O’Malley’s sweeping gun control package to final passage. A Washington Post article from the time called Frosh, “O’Malley’s key ally in the Senate.” And Frosh’s work on the issue earned him the praise and support of billionaire gun control bankroller Michael Bloomberg.

Specifically, Bloomberg said of Frosh, “[n]o one has done more in Maryland than Brian Frosh to lead the fight against illegal guns and protect citizens from incidents of gun violence.”

They won’t get the guns. It’s all rhetoric. Just as they have made drugs illegal, gun sales would go black market. I know individuals who have lots of guns. Also, it’s my guess some states will secede and take control of their armories and bases. More fire power. Can you imagine being able to access Area 51, Dulce, Denver Airport, Cheyenne Mountain, etc.? God only knows what’s in those places. I want to know. I’m not saying that they won’t try to crash the economy, hit us with HAARP disasters, sicken us with plagues, etc. It will all come. But… Read more »

And the “VOTE” comes home to roost.


The constitutional provision to have and bear arms/weapons over rides their desire and wants.
Marbury Vs. Madison, “No provision within the Constitution is designed to be without effect.” Anything that is in conflict is null and void of law.” (also see American Jurisprudence Book 16, Section 256:)
Bary Vs. United States, “Any Constitutional provision intended to confer a benefit should be liberally construed in favor in the clearly intended and expressly designated beneficiary.” (Also see American jurisprudence Book 16, Section 97:)


The apple never falls far from the tree. What country is Thiruvendran Vignarajah’s father from?

“He must represent the criminal population.”
Of course he does. He’s a politician. They think they have the exclusive right to the use or threat of use of force to get their way. Violence to obtain societal compliance is terrorism.


He must represent the criminal population.
