Former Maryland Permit Review Board Member Physically Dragged from Hearing ~ VIDEO

Opinion

U.S.A. -(Ammoland.com)- On  8 March, 2019, joint hearings were being held on SB1000, a bill that would effectively abolish the appeals process to the Maryland Handgun Permit Review Board (HPRB). The sponsors of SB1000 are all Democrats.

A former member of the HPRB wished to testify about claimed inaccuracies about the Board that was printed in a Baltimore Sun editorial. The joint committee only allowed one minute for comments. It was not enough for Shari Judah to finish her comments. She refused to give up the microphone when asked to do so. From mdshooters.com:

Today in the joint hearings in Annapolis, former Handgun Permit Review Board member Shari Judah of Montgomery County was EJECTED by the plainclothes Maryland State Police when she continued testifying past the punitive one-minute time limit set by the Democrats intent on ending the HPRB's civilian appointee oversight of the MSP Wear & Carry process.

Ms. Judah, who could be regarded as an EXPERT witness on the functioning and value of the HPRB, was rudely treated as if her insights were of NO VALUE to the joint committees attempting to railroad through the disbanding of the Board.

As has been mentioned, the one-minute testimony time limit is a clear indication that MD Democrats have made up their mind that civilian oversight by Governor Hogan's appointees is to be eradicated because the oversight does not meet Democrat policy demands.

Civilian oversight of MD bureaucracies is the ultimate expression of the process whereby ELECTIONS HAVE CONSEQUENCES!

The video on Youtube, shows MS Judah being physicaly dragged from the meeting.

One minute was not enough. I do not know if the statement was submitted to the joint committee in writing. They often are.

While the video of MS Judah being dragged out of the hearing while shouting  “You're a disgrace! You're a disgrace” is disturbing, it is not illegal. Committees must control their proceedings or they devolve into anarchy but ripping someone from a chair is not right, that is what a gavel is for. The key here is they only allowed one minute for comments.  Participants are always told their time limits. It is a way to limit dissent, but the committee members were voted into power.

We do not know if the bill will pass, or if the governor will sign it into law or veto the bill.

The bill uses administrative procedure to infringe on Second Amendment rights. The problem Constitutionalists face is they work to preserve the rule of law and to defend the Constitution.

Progressives do not believe in the Constitution; that effectively means they do not believe in the rule of law, which handicaps Constitutionalists.

Second Amendment supporters share Shari Judah's passion and disgust with the proceedings. But the Progressives on the committee will feel no disgrace. They do not admit there should be such a thing as disgrace. Morals, for Progressives, are situational, fluid, and adaptable to the moment.

    These people are breaking the law and are Felonious Perjuring Seditious Traitors. The way to deal with them is by Military Tribunal. Drag them out of their beds at 3am and out to the street where the tribunal is already set up, waiting for them. If a guilty verdict is announced, they would then be given a choice as to which way they wanted to commit suicide. They would be given ONE MINUTE to decide.

    The damn DEMOCRATS say they want to abolish all guns to save lives BUT THEY KILL CHILDREN EVERY DAY BY ABORTING UNBORN BABIES. DEMOCRATS doing what they do best LIE AND DECEIVE.

    Being pro choice has nothing to do with firearm freedoms. Stop conflating the two issues and stick to the more important things like our right to protect ourselves with whatever we deem necessary to do the job. Gun forums and news articles are not a place to have verbal diarrhea about a pro life vs pro choice, a topic that you obviously have no clue about.

    If you don’t have the right to live, you don’t have the right to defend yourself. Especially from your government. The Bill of Rights exists because some of our founding fathers knew that some others would readily tramp all over the rights of people with whom they disagreed. See: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alien_and_Sedition_Acts
    What makes you think that things are any different now? And every right that gets removed from public expectations makes it that much easier for progressives to go after the next one. Eventually, there will be no rights. Just “Do as I say, or I’ll kill you.”

    • Stephen P Halbrook – Gun Control in the Third Reich- Disarming the Jews and Enemies of the State
    • Stephen P Halbrook – Gun Control in Nazi Occupied France
    • Stephen P Halbrook – The Founders’ Second Amendment

    Here are the democrats answer to gun control, see how it was completed in the 1920’s through to 1945 in Europe. Everything you hear and see now has already happened before.
    Then read, The Founders Second Amendment.

    This kind of stuff is exactly what happened before WW-2 in Germany! Also happened in Russia, China, Rhodesia etc. I suspect the next vote will be done with a rifle. Either way, civil disobedience is in order. Common sense dictates arming up and staying armed. Not just for self defense anymore. I am certain there are still some politicians who are righteously defending the constitution but these people are not among them. Treason has a price. When politicians won’t even allow dissenting speech it has gone way, way too far. Isn’t this kind of thing what started the war for… Read more »

    so the gummit of Hawaii are accessing the 4473 forms? HOW CAN THIS BE LEGAL? Those are FEDERAL forms, and privacy laws prohibit their falling into the hands of state government hooh hahs. SOMEONE needs to get after this. FFL’s are required to kep this, and protect them from illegal access. That is Fed law. If Hawaii’s FFL’s were to sudenly deny access to state goons for these forms that are protected, then thegoons would have to do something else. Where are NRA when they are badly needed?

    The underlying weakness in your argument is that you still believe in the fallacy of Democrats and Rinos believing in the rule of law. Just because something is against the law constitutionally, or even legislatively, does not mean that those who reject the concept of the rule of law, in favor of Might makes right, have no problem violating any written statute, regardless of what that statute is. Filing in the court system makes no sense anymore either, because of activist judges, and because of the long time it takes for the suit to work its way through the court… Read more »

    It’s time to practice aiming small so as to miss small. One bullet right between the eyes is usually a well spent bullet on a TRAITOR. The US Constitution and the Bill of Rights are the Supreme Law of the Land, weather the Commie -Bolshecrats like it or not. No matter what position they hold in the government, they are on the wrong side of the law. And ignorance of the law is no excuse. Be ready for the knock on the door. DO NOT ANSWER THE DOOR. It will be foreign troops, or TRAITOR LEO’s on the other side,… Read more »

    This is one of the many reasons why we recently packed up and moved from the People’s Republick of Maryland to the now Constitutional Carry state of Oklahoma last summer. Maryland is overrun by Democrats and is being more so everyday by the illegal migrants encouraged to live there without consequence. The Republican governor does what he can, but he’s hog-tied by gerrymandered electoral districts that will keep the state houses in Democratic hands in perpetuity.

    The big picture is it’s all about control. You take away an individual’s right to defend themselves and they have to rely on the government. A person relying on the government is easier to control.

    HOW MUCH LONGER before those who profess to love LIBERTY stand up, say ENOUGH IS ENOUGH, and actually RESTORE THE REPUBLIC??!?

    How far down into tyranny must we descend before we get a HARD RESET back to 1776??

    I for one am SICK, BEYOND SICK, of hearing about this BS!!

    [email protected], actually, no. It wasn’t until after the Brits disarmed Boston and marched on Lexington and Concord to seize arms that the shooting war began. We are not yet at that stage. We also do not have a Continental government acting “for the people” to make a decision to fight, and provide funding and soldiers.

    I think that all are saying that very thing in their own way. I agree Brother Flatt, and the time is to stand; however, sadly, it will not be too long when our firearms may have to speak. I pray that it does not come to that end, but I can’t help but see the war coming. They will attack Patriot, Jew, and Christian. Anyone that refuses to comply will be on their list.

    It is EXCEEDINGLY DIFFICULT to change a bad ANTI-Constitutional, ANTI-Second Amendment “LAW” when the CONTROLLERS making the decisions belong to the DemocRATic Communist/islamist/nwo party.
    BEFORE this ANTI-Constitutional “law” was being RAMMED THROUGH, Maryland was SUPPOSED TO BE A “MAY ISSUE” gun state.
    However, it is nigh onto IMPOSSIBLE to obtain an ANTI-Second Amendment “gun carry permit” with out MULTIPLE LAYERS OF “TIME”, “PLACE” and “situation”.
    There are basically FOUR (4) reasons a person can get a carry permit.
    HOWEVER, the Second Amendment REASON is TOTALLY IGNORED!!!!!
    “SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED”!
