Gun control hurts more than gun ownersSubmitted by muckraker on Sun, 08/03/2014 - 23:34
Anti-Gun legislation in Maryland hurts more than gun owners. It interferes with free trade principles on both national and international levels, and negatively affects the families of the companies involved.
“If we can save just one life…” came the battle cry of the anti gun lobby. Time and again it was heard all across the country during the reactionary period following the murders at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, Connecticut. In some states the fight was over before it even started, and the Constitution prevailed. In other states strict gun laws were passed to add to the thousands of gun laws already in existence nationwide, which continue to be ineffective at reducing illegal gun activity.
During their regular legislative session, Maryland passed the Firearm Safety Act of 2013. A bill designed to, according to a press release by Governor O’Malley’s office, “save lives” by banning certain so-called assault weapons and limiting magazine capacity among several other rules proven to effect only legal gun owners. It bears mention that unlike their Democrat run sister states like New York, this bill went through the legislative process rather than being rammed through in a middle of the night emergency session, at Christmas, before any opposition could be formed.
