Seems like its getting to be that time of year again, folks....

Any advance word on which Communists in Annapolis will be trying what this year?

Will it be about the same as last year? Will the Communists be trying hard to get Ehrlich to go on record with a signature or a veto on a gun bill? As far as the Communists are concerned, Ehrlich loses either way--passing a gun bill will alienate his core supporters, while vetoing a bill will allow them to run smear ads in the fall saying that he is a "gun-toting lunatic" or something like that.

This should be the URL for 2006 gun bills.

mlis.state.md.us/2006rs/subjects/guns.htm

It's not working now, probably not until the GA is in session.

Hey BBQ... you seem to be pretty well read up on the MD politics and such.

Wanna give some of us who are tuned out a quick run down on when the voting will be taking place in MD and who are the most gun friendly candiates that are in the best position to give the opposition a serious run. Don't bother with the "waste of a vote" underdogs.

Feel free to run this info in a new thread to avoid a serious hijack.

We have two strongly pro-gun candidates running this year:

Ron George in District 30 (Annapolis area....my district)

Rick Bowers in Howard County who running against the great Satan.....Neil Quinter.

FWIW, I went to Bowers' kick off party with a bunch of Maryland Shall Issue folks and EVERY Howard County politician that was there said they support us in our CCW efforts, but can't do it too publicly because of the nature of politics in HoCo. IOW, they were telling a bunch of gun owners what they needed to tell them, but it might mean that if enough HoCo residents get after their officials we may pick up some allies.

It's nice to know that our constituents support their voters views but won't do dick about it because they fear they might not be (re)elected. Sounds like they were wearing their true colors on their sleeves.

How come anti-gun politicians can run around ranting and raving about how they want guns gone and don't worry about the results?

now I'm starting to remember why I preferred being clueless about this type of crap. It just pisses me off.
