Anti-Self-Defense Bill Under Consideration In Maryland

posted on January 25, 2017

A measure under consideration in the Maryland House would severely restrict the rights of law-abiding gun owners who carry a firearm for self-defense.

 

House Bill 159, sponsored by Delegate Ben Barnes, would ban the possession or carrying of firearms on college campuses. According to NRA-ILA, current law allows each university to set its own policy regarding the carrying or possession of firearms, and this legislation would institute a blanket prohibition that would disallow schools from using discretion on their campus.

 

HB 159 also imposes extreme penalties—including fines, up to three years in prison, and the potential loss of Second Amendment rights. The measure is scheduled to be heard in the House Appropriations Committee at 1 p.m. on Jan. 31.
