Although HB-88 was defeated in the senate, Governor Markell and Attorney General Beau Biden are not going to let this stand, or so they think!
“I’m not giving up on this,” said AG Biden in a recent statement. The last session of the General Assembly starts Sunday and the Democratic Caucus intends to re-introduce the bill and force passage at an eleventh hour vote. This bill is called the “Gun Grab” bill and is definitely unconstitutional. It would give the police and authorities broad power to declare nearly any person they don’t like as, mentally incompetent or mentally ill, and enter their home and confiscate legally owned weapons.
A rally and vigil to oppose the passage of HB-88 is being held at Legislative Hall on Sunday, June 30, starting at 4pm and will last as long as it takes to deal the final death blow to this bill. This tyrannical bill would definitely violate our Second Amendment right to bear arms. The rally will be a massive effort, and our Second Amendment Rights are on the line, please call your Senator and make sure his/her vote stays a NO vote and if your senator is a democrat, please call and persuade him/her to change their vote.
The Second Amendment of the United States of America:
A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.
“A nation can only be disgraced by the failure of its citizenry to take action in the face of tyranny.”
