Subject: Feb 6th Gun hearing- please be there!
Feb 6th 1pm
Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee room
Miller Senate Building
11 Bladen Street, Annapolis MD
If you are testifying: Please arrive as early as possible to sign in, the committee will take sign ins until about noon. You will be given 3 minutes to speak.
If you are submitting written testimony you must bring a copy for each of the Senators who sit on the committee (11 copies) and submit them to Committee staff before noon so they can make sure all of the Senators have the materials on their desks.
There are various parking garages in Annapolis, or you can park at the Naval Academy Stadium and ride the Annapolis Shuttle/Trolley to Lawyers Mall- The Senate Building is right across the Street.
Be prepared to spend the whole day here, whether you testify or not, what is important is that we are there in numbers to stand in opposition. We need thousands of gun owners.
George Washington and his army marched barefoot in the snow to make a treacherous nighttime crossing of the Frozen Delaware river to Trenton, NJ to launch a surprise attack on the British encampment which eventually turned the tide of the American Revolution, ensuring the birth of the United States- will you give up a day at work to preserve what they fought to leave us?
Lets fight this fight so vigorously in MD that we make national news in defense of the Second Amendment!

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
‘HB-106 – The Repeal of The Sustainable Growth and Agricultural Act of 2012 (SB – 236) – Recieves a Hearing Date’
(ANNAPOLIS) — Today
it was announced that HB-106, entiled ‘Sustainable Growth and
Agricultural Preservation Act of 2012 – Repeal’, will be heard in the Environmental Matters Committee on February 6th, at 1:00 p.m. “Let’s
get as many people as possible to come out to Annapolis to testify in
favor of this bill. We need to show the Environmental Matters Committee
the negative impact this bill has on the people of Maryland and their
property rights” stated Delegate Mike McDermott (R- District 38B) in response to the hearing date.
year, the General Assembly took away decision making authority from our
local governments under SB-236. In the name of ‘preservation’, they
gave us restrictions, and in the name of ‘planning’, they have now
taken control. Currently, many local governments are waiting and
hoping that some relief will come during the 2013 Session, and I am
hoping to do just that with the Repeal of SB- 236” stated Delegate McDermott.
