Assault weapons ban revived in Md. legislature


Howard delegate promotes bill with Baltimore's police chief at his side

The Associated Press

Originally published February 9, 2006, 5:00 PM EST

ANNAPOLIS // Semiautomatic weapons would be banned in Maryland under an
assault weapons ban proposed today by a Democratic lawmaker.

The measure, proposed unsuccessfully last year, would make possession of an
automatic weapon on the list punishable by at least five years in prison,
unless the owners can prove they legally had the gun before the ban would
take effect.

"These are weapons of war. These are not for hunting," said Del. Neil
Quinter, D-Howard County, who sponsored the bill. A similar bill failed last
year.

Joining Quinter to announce the proposal was Baltimore Police Commissioner
Leonard Hamm, who told reporters that his officers recovered 22 assault
weapons last year.

"That doesn't sound like a lot. But if you ever see one of these things [up
close], they're absolutely frightening," Hamm said.

A Republican on the House Judiciary Committee, which is likely to hear the
bill, said he doubted an assault weapons ban would make Maryland safer.

"Personally I don't see much need for people to have assault weapons or
weapons of that nature, but on the other hand, I see no reason for the
government to step in," said Del. William Daniel Mayer, R-Charles County.

A federal ban on the military-style guns lapsed in 2004.

Did you see him on the tube tonight? Him and his pick for Lt. Gov. Total propaganda for the sheeple. We have to stop this man and his campaign...can you imagine O'Malley as gov and Sheila Dixon as mayor?

Doesn't it seem like we already had a hearing scheduled by this time last year? I wonder if Der Kommandant Brian Frosh is trying to schedule it last-minute so that we won't be able to voice our opposition.

Very perceptive, my friend. There's already been a lot of buzz about this exact issue. Frosh got very devious last year with his scheduling. First they had a hearing over in the Senate with Garagiola's feint AWB, got everyone fired up and packing the hearing.

Then they quickly scheduled another hearing over in the House, knowing that folks either couldn't take an additional day off or couldn't make it happen so quickly.

Quinter is paying us back for the verbal bitch slapping he took last year during the hearings on his bill.

BTW, Ceasefire MD is back with a new Executive Director.

Yeah, a while back (3-4 months?)

the ceasfiremd web site still has her listed though

Leah Barrett, Executive Director.
Ms. Barrett has been Executive Director of CeaseFire Maryland since January, 2003. She is also Vice President of the Montgomery County Million Mom March. She lost her older brother to gun violence in 1997. Prior to living in Maryland, Ms. Barrett and her family lived fourteen years in London, UK, where she held a several executive positions. Her last nine years in London were spent as Corporate Communication and Environmental Affairs Director for Tetra Pak, Ltd, a Swedish packaging company. She has also worked for The Economist, McGraw-Hill and Data Resources, Inc. She holds a master’s degree in International Affairs and Russian from Columbia University.

Posted to the VA HomeTown section.

I do not want MD to become another New Jersey. I like shooting 3gun up North and I bet that match shooting WILL NOT be an exception to the prohibition on bringing assault guns into the state.

It matters to us in VA what happens to you in MD. Now, someone want to spread the Phone Numbers to call in the other hometowns like PA? Thanks.

If one can remember that Leah's real name is Gail Gunn it is simple to find pictures when cross-referencing that name with Tatra-Pak.

Gail Gunn? WTF?
Link Posted: 2/10/2006 7:55:22 PM EDT
Leah Barrett's real name is Gail Gunn. She apparently changed it about the time that she moved back to the US. Her husband is on the faculty of Johns Hopkins and his last name is Barrett. That explains the last name change, but not the first.

You should have seen her face last year when most of the pro-gun folks were wearing the stickers that I distributed:

"Who is Gail Gunn and why is she sleeping with Leah Barrett's husband?"

This shit really burns my ass
Leonard Hamm...The man with no crime plan.....What a FU@&!$G joke. That city is off the hook. Close to 300 murders last year, and hundreds, and hundreds of shootings! I am sure that Less than 1% of the shootings and murders were with an assault weapon. If the dems would crack down on law, and stop giving every one a second chance, people would rot in city jail, and Baltimore would be a nicer place. If this ban passes, I have a 8 acre lot with a 6 year old 3,000 Sq ft colonial(Unfinished basement), with a detatched 20x20 party room/Garage in the Catoctin Mountains in Frederick, that is going on the market. I am literally 5 minutes from Pa. I should have moved there in the first place.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, we need to confront these assholes right here and shut them down before they can pass it. Going to VA, PA or WV is a temporary reprieve at best. If we let them pick up momentum again, we are done for on a nation scale. Like it or not, we're the test ground for the antis along with CA and MA. What gets pushed through here will make it out into the rest of the country.

Quinter, in all likelihood, is done for after November. He has a great Republican running against him in the general election and allegedly there is someone stepping up from within the Democratic party to challenge him in the primary.

Quinter is not acting based on his Howard County constituents. He is funded by donations from the Brady Campaign, Diane Feinstein and other anti groups.

Cross-posted from MDshooters.com:


Thanks for posting the bills. You beat me to it.

Guys, there's about 30 fewer co-sponsors for the AWB this year than last. This is good news but it in no way diminishes the fact that we MUST contact our delegates and senators and have them hear the voices of gun owners.

Of particular import is to contact Neil Quinter's office and tell him to kiss yo....I mean to register your opposition to his AWB. In addition be sure to call Senator Gianetti's office and urge his continued support on pro-gun bills. Giannetti is the swing vote on the judicial proceedings committee and has been put up as the Brady Campaign's No1 target for this year.


If you haven't heard by now, Neil Quinter (District 13) has introduced his Assault Weapon Ban again this year. The good news is that it has about 30 less cosponsors than last year. That's good news, but it doesn't mean it's dead. We'll have to make sure of that. The NRA recommends you call: "Delegate Quinter can be reached at (410) 841-3246. Be sure to tell him that you strongly oppose his repeated attacks on the Second Amendment." Even more importantly please call Senator John Giannetti's office 410-841-3141 and tell him how much you appreciate his blocking the AWB the last couple years and that he has your support in the upcoming election because of that.

is there a cross-filed Senate bill? you're wasting your time calling Gianetti if not. Call your House of Delegates critters.

Link Posted: 2/14/2006 3:50:53 PM EDT
Word is that there is a Senate CCW bill going to be cross-filed. No other details as of yet. Giannetti will be looking for a reason to support this bill as he literally is straddling the fence on all of the bills. Call him at 1-800-492-7122 ext.3141 and thank him for his support last year and to encourage him to support pro-gun bills this year and oppose anti bills this year.

"IF" This were to pass (Im going to call everyone I can and fight this bills passage) will the Governor veto this? Does anyone know the Governor feels about this issue? He is up for re-election so maybe he will sign it to get votes from baltimore and P.G. county. If its passed in the senate and vetoed by the Governor is there enough antigun buttholes to override?

My bet is that Ehrlich would sign it. Even if he were to veto it, it would be a close vote on whether or not the legislature could override his veto.

Ehrlich is a fair-weather friend to us at best.

Theyy have 30 fewer co-sponsors this year on Quinter's bill. Even the anti Delegates are beginning to see that this is a losing proposition and, furthermore, none of them want to go on record in an election year as having voted for an AWB.

Besides, Quinter is more and more being seen for the nut case that he is. Even Vallario, again no friend of ours, bitched slapped this slime ball last year because he was such an embarassment.

Ehrlich is more on our side than might be apparent, but is hamstrung by the realities of of the numbers in the General Assembly. If it goes to his desk, I would bet on a veto and I doubt that the antis in the GA would expend the political capital to over ride him on this issue.

The key for all of us to understand is that NOW is the time to hit the phones and letters. Once it gets out of the JUD committee it is pretty much a done deal. We have to stop it there.

[Chris Griffin] Whhhhaaaaaaa?!?!? [/Chris Griffin]

Assault Long Gun?? A new take on an already false term? It think its funny that they have to switch up the "terminology" just to make it look fresh. Well, not that its funny but still. Proves the term Lib-tard.

Who all are planning on being there on the 8th?


I think they are distinguishing from an "assault pistol" which is already illegal here & you don't get a chance to buy/register them all over.

The law provides that you must register your gun in order for it to be legal. If you don't by the deadline, it's illegal, and they could presumably take your gun and put you in jail. If you didn't want to register your gun you could sell it out of state I suppose, or before the deadline.

Was it not registered when I bought it? I bought it from a FFL dealer in VA and he turned in the proper paperwork.

What state were you a resident of when you bought it?
If you were a VA resident, it was not registered. He filled out the paperwork for a rifle sale.
If you were a MD resident, and bought an HBAR rifle from a VA dealer who knows MD law, I'm not sure exactly what forms are filled out but still there is no registration. If it was a regulated firearm, you went through a background check/wait, and although the rifle is not technically registered the MD police keep track of your purchase.

In any event, if the law were to pass (doesn't look likely for this year) then there would be some form or paperwork to actually register your gun to keep it in MD. This would include situations like if you bought your gun in VA when you were a VA resident, but moved here, and MD doesn't know about it.
