Maryland Joins Other States in Passing Tough Gun Legislation

Wednesday the Maryland House of Delegates passed a bill already approved by the Senate that will put restrictions on gun sales.

Among the toughest in the nation, it bans assault rifles, requires a permit and fingerprint check before purchasing a handgun, and limits the handgun’s magazine to 10 rounds.  It passed 78-61.

The House added one additional provision.  If a handgun is lost or stolen, the owner has a legal requirement to report it within 72 hours.

Some Republicans wanted the fingerprint portion of the bill removed, but it was retained by majority vote.

Maryland joins neighbors Connecticut and New York, as well as Colorado in the west, as states seriously concerned with the safety of all citizens.

I’ll bet Wayne La Pierre has a major headache right now.
