    I'm glad you got a chance to corner them, but their answers were sadly predictable. Any warm & fuzzy feeling I get from knowing that you made 'em uncomfortable is offset by a gnawing realization that these clowns are in all likelihood going to be running things in MD for some time to come. I hope it's not the case, but I fear it's almost inevitable that it is.

    Nice! I'll have to see if any of this makes the news tonight.

    The upshot is we have Martin O'Malley saying he doesn't mind defensive handguns and that "we have a process in place for permitting". Too bad I didn't get to corner him on how screwed up said process is...but there'll be a next time I'm sure. :)

    Helmetcase, they DO have 9MM carbines that could easily fall into the "EBR" category. It still uses pistol ammo, though.

    I am actually beginning to like you. You are quite a troublemaker.

    Wait til' we teach him the ropes at the legislative hearings. I have a feeling you'll want to marry him after that. :neener:

    Well I lived in MD for 6 years, so I know he certainly has his work cut out for him.

    Here's the press release:

    What are the chances this thing will pass? How do I prove I owned my semi-autos before the ban? Is there any other state that has an outright ban on semi-autos?

    If I work in MD but live in another state, do I pay Maryland income tax? I've disliked MD for quite some time, but I'm here for a while because of my job. I'd seriously consider moving to eastern WV or Southern PA if I didn't have to pay MD income tax.

    There's always a chance that it will pass if we don't actively fight it through letters, phone calls, and testimony at the hearings. We can never take it for granted that just because it failed previously that it will fail again.

    I can't answer your question about non-residents paying tax to MD if they work here. I will say that if all of the piss and vinegar gun owners in this state bail out we will see even more restrictive laws enacted. Furthermore, if MD gets worse, it will only be a matter of time before it creeps out to PA, VA, WV. We're on the front lines of the national battle for gun rights in this country and, like it or not, we've got to get in there and duke it out with these idiots.

    Come lobby with me. You don't even know the half of it. Greg couldn't believe I would actually have the chutzpah to walk up to the most anti legislator and grill his ass.

    If these folks think their celebrities and don't have to answer to me...they got another thing coming.

    But you're right, the work is plentiful and never ending here...hopefully my grandkids will have CCW :what: :fire: :D

    If I recall correctly, Sen. Giannetti can block it in the house again, much the way Frosh can keep quashing our CCW bills. One more reason we need to protect his seat with all our might.

    Mayer's quote is great, but he didn't sign on to cosponsor the reciprocity bill...so who knows.

    If MOM gets the Govenor's seat in Maryland, you're going to be hearing a lot more about lists and bans. This guy is the worst thing that could happen politicly for 2A rights in Maryland. The potential ramifications can't be underestimated.:cuss: :cuss: :banghead: :fire:

    Oh, I think we could do a bit worse. Jenn Palmer of the NRA pretty much said that MOM isn't great, but he's better than Duncan and hasn't really decided what he thinks yet. MOM at least pretends to think possessing defensive weapons are ok. Apparently his foe Duncan is pretty much outright against even that. He was on Norris's show on 105.7 today, I wanted to call in and grill him about that, but lobbying and doing this press conference was more important.

    Then again, the NRA in MD is like a drunk monkey humping a football, so take that FWIW.

    I'd love to do the political thing someday, but law school beckons. I think I can do a lot more good and donate a lot more money when I have lawyer connections and lawyer money to sling around.

    I honestly think politics will be a late-life thing because I wasnt born into money and I also dont have the connections yet that I would need to make a go of it. Hopefully a few years in Tallahassee will remedy that.

    I wonder if there is a Federalist Society chapter at FSU. Could I start one?

    Is it wrong for me to think of ways for people like this to get hurt?:evil:

    Diane Feinstein falling down a flight of stairs. (I really would love to see the look on her face.)
    Jessie Jackson getting robbed by a black person. (Ironic?)
    Hillary Clinton getting into a car accident with a Canadian who came to the US for surgery to avoid the 6 month waiting period in Canada.(Ironic?)

    I'm not asking much. I'm just asking for Karma to hurry up.

    "Personally I don't see much need for people to have assault weapons or
    weapons of that nature,"

    so in the event of an emergency, Doug Duncan will issue me an M4 and body armor. Knowing how to use it might require training...

    Nice one Harry. Will you please email that to Neil Quinter's office? Be sure to tell him PGP says hello.

    interesting year in MD, this. . .

    The Sun has a good article on the back-stabbing behing the bill . . . looks like Doug Donut got left out in the cold. Garagiola isn't even submitting the Senate version this year.


    Too bad Brown proved why we enlisted guys don't/didn't think much of many in the officer corps . . .;) (FYI: Mike Barnes, former head of The Brady Campaign, is a retired USMC Lt.Col)
