Maryland Shall Issue

- ANNOUNCES -

OPEN HOLSTER RALLY #5

Monday, January 16th, 2012
(Our 2nd MLK Day Event!)

12 Noon – 2:00 PM

On Lawyers’ Mall, Annapolis, Maryland

Sign up for the latest information and updates at

http://www.marylandshallissue.org


How to Participate: Join us at Lawyers’ Mall, located at College Ave. & Bladen St. (Rowe Blvd. extended), Annapolis. We will be gathering in the General Assembly’s backyard so we can be heard. MSI is arranging to have leaders and friends of the 2A community speak at the Rally. Afterwards we will disperse around Annapolis to enjoy the fine restaurants and shopping. Bring your family and friends to enjoy the day. Wear MSI Blue so everyone knows you are part of the Rally. Get MSI merchandise at the MSI web site, http://www.marylandshallissue.org.

Purpose: To have a large, completely peaceful and unarmed gathering of supporters of Maryland “Shall Issue” and 2nd Amendment rights. We will be wearing empty holsters in protest of the current “Discretionary Issue” system that sees Handgun Carry Permits issued only to those politically connected or dealing in extraordinarily large amounts of physical cash, or the occasional person who can meet the high burden of proof needed to receive one for self defense.

Basic Safety Rules: All holsters must remain empty at all times. Do not put toy guns, training guns or the like in your holster. We want to emphasize the emptiness of the holsters and our lack of protection. The holster will simply be a fashion accessory, symbolizing our vulnerability to criminals.



PLAN TO JOIN US AND BRING YOUR FAMILY!

With all the attention that the 2A is getting at the State and National levels, it is time to show some solidarity to our elected representatives.

Come on out and support the cause!

I'm going to try and make it. I spend a fair amount of time on the eastern shore shooting shotguns.
You guys have a real uphill battle on your hands! I feel your pain.

Good luck with your rally.
We here in La have had Shall Issue permits for statewide conceal carry since 1996. We are an unlicensed Open Carry state.
I hope you get Shall Issue passed in your state soon.

The funny thing is that even though loaded mags are legal, per the AG's office, some agencies still instruct their officers to treat them as if they were a loaded gun and to arrest and charge individuals if they have them.

This would not be the time nor place to make a test case of that since it's the property of the legislative complex and they can pretty much unilaterally deny our application in the future for any reason.

While I am no longer an inmate of the PRM I salute your efforts to change the insanity in Maryland. If I were still living in Laurel I'd be there to support you. I will be there in spirit.

I wish I'd heard about this sooner. Let THR know if there is another. Is this open to residents of other states? I live close to the PA/MD border, and if we have to go to town and plan on making a stop in MD, we have to leave the weapons at home. I have a neighbor who has a permit and weapon but works every day in MD so he can't use them. It's very frustrating.
