  3. Last week, NRA joined the Gun Owners’ Action League and filed an Amicus Brief in support of federal court action taken in response to Gov. Baker’s decision to close gun shops in Massachusetts. Governor Baker’s administration has used the COVID-19 pandemic as a means to brazenly threaten our Second Amendment rights by failing to designate gun shops as “Essential Businesses.” Today, U.S. Judge Douglas P. Woodlock issued a preliminary injunction to prevent Massachusetts from enforcing the unlawful order. “We don't surrender our constitutional rights. These plaintiffs have constitutional rights that deserve respect and vindication, and it becomes necessary for a court to do that rather than the executive when the executive declines," said Judge Woodlock. Judge Woodlock held that Gov. Baker and his administration likely placed an improper burden on the Second Amendment rights of the citizens of Massachusetts by forcing gun shops to close. He ruled that the State must allow gun shops to re-open by noon on Saturday, May 9, 2020, with certain guidelines that will be included in the written order to follow. This is breaking and developing news, and as more details become available, we will update NRA members further.
  4. Today, Governor Larry Hogan issued a veto on Senate Bill 208 and House Bill 4. Gov. Hogan knows that restricting law-abiding citizens will do nothing to stop criminals. In his statement on the veto, he reaffirmed his priority to “hold violent criminals accountable” for their actions. Please click the button below to thank Gov. Hogan. These bills would have banned the sale or transfer of long guns between private individuals without first paying fees and obtaining government permission. Firearm transfers such as loans and gifts between friends, neighbors, or fellow hunters, would not have been exempted. Research shows such proposals have no impact on violent crime and Gov. Hogan is to be commended for refusing to recognize the false claims pushed by anti-gun advocates on this legislation. Your NRA would like to thank Gov. Hogan for protecting the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Marylanders.
