Maryland Deputy AG: “We Should Ban Guns”

posted on December 7, 2015

In a series of statements made to—and secretly recorded by—an undercover journalist, Maryland Deputy Attorney General Thiruvendran Vignarajah expressed his thorough disregard for the Second Amendment. “My complete answer, off the record, is that we should ban guns altogether, period,” said Vignarajah. “If you want gun practice with a gun, you can go to the gun range, pick up your gun at the gun range, fire it there, and then you leave it there and you go home.” 

The deputy AG did concede that he could accept individuals having guns in the home under some conditions, including required liability insurance, an “extensive licensing scheme,” taxes and “fingerprint trigger locks.” The Maryland attorney general’s office has long been a hotbed of anti-gun activity; Vignarajah’s statements merely confirm that this institution continues to be an enemy to the Second Amendment.
