Maryland: House Passes Multiple Gun Control Bills to the Senate

Recommended Posts

Last night, the Maryland House passed multiple gun control bills.  House Bill 786 was passed by a 90 to 49 vote, and House Bill 740 was passed by a 94 to 45 vote.  These bills now head to the Senate for further consideration, and your Senator needs to hear from you now!  Please contact your state Senator and strongly urge them to OPPOSE House Bill 786 and House Bill 740.


House Bill 786, sponsored by Delegate Vanessa Atterbeary, originally sought to create “Long Gun Qualification Licenses (LGQL).” Following the amendments made in House committee, HB 786 now seeks to ban the private transfer of long guns in Maryland with minimal, poorly worded exceptions.  This legislation is just another step to make it more difficult for law-abiding gun owners to possess and transfer their private property.

House Bill 740, sponsored by Delegate Kathleen Dumais, originally sought to establish certain crimes relating to the criminal possession or manufacture of 3D Printed Firearms and “Ghost Guns.”  While significant portions of this bill were amended out, a provision was added requiring the Maryland State Police to study the feasibility of a registry for all firearms without a serial number, provide cost estimates, all by September of this year.

Again, please contact your state Senator and strongly urge them to OPPOSE House Bill 786 and House Bill 740.

I live in this state, and I am disappointed to say the least at the ridiculous restrictive, INEFFECTIVE legislation proposed and in place in this state.  Shooters and sportsman in Maryland are not in the majority.
