Same bill as last year.....thought you folks might be interesting in knowing about it.

Pardon the link to the other forum, trying to avoid formatting issues between the two sites when I cut and caste:

That's what I figured. I don't know that anybody can beat that reaction though. Hope y'all had some laughs!

I really wish it would pass. I have family in MD and spend a fair bit of time there.

I purposely avoid MD where I used to drive through it taking the 95-495-270-70 way "home" to Central Pa from Va. Now, instead of going that way and stopping at least once in MD, I go through Winchester, Va and cross MD on 522. I think I am in MD for 2 miles or less.

Same here. Would be awesome.

Since they won't issue to their own residents, it seems unlikely they'll extend the privilege to anyone else.

What else is new? Does it leave off Pa too?

I'm sure it's an omission by error and not a slight.

I'll be seeing the sponsor on Monday evening and will bring it up.

I'm a part time WV Resident, so I got your back.

Per the VCDL alert, I just contacted all the MD reps and got this reply from one of them:

Thank you for contacting my office regarding HB 9. I am a co-signer of this bill and have been a longtime supporter of Gun Rights in Maryland. I will continue to support this, and all other pro 2nd Amendment legislation as long as I am elected to serve in my office.



Please consider coming to Annapolis to testify your support, as this is crucial to the success of any bill. You can contact Del. Smigiel if you intend to testify in Committee. (410-841-3555) This bill is being heard on January 25 at 1pm.



Thanks again for contacting me, please do not hesitate to do so again.





Constitutionally Yours,



Don H. Dwyer, Jr.

Delegate

Maryland General Assembly

District 31, Anne Arundel County

410-841-3047 (office)

410-841-3779 (fax)

I got the VCDL alert and fired off my letter to the MD Delegates.

If every person that smiled as they passed our VCDL table at the Hampton show this weekend saying "I'm a member already"...would email the Maryland committee as recommended, we could make as big a difference as we've made here in VA with our own house of delegates and Senate.

It doesn't have to come up for a vote to be dead in the water. That's politics.

So the 5 people who have real Maryland carry permits will be able to carry in VA too if this passed?

Somehow I don't see this happening, if nothing else because they won't even let their own citizens carry concealed. Why would they let us Yahoo, gunshow loophole, Virginians carry there?

If MD is anything like CA, their wealthy elite have CCW/CHP Maybe they'd like to be able to carry into that dangerous redneck territory of Virginia where racists lie in wait to kill honest progressives?
