Maryland is one of those states where gun rights go to die. While you can and should pin that on The Free State’s politicians, and thus on the voters who elect them, I hold Old Line pro-gun control law enforcement officers in special contempt. They swear an oath to the United States Constitution and should understand the value of armed law-abiding citizens. In fact, I recently heard the term “jack booted do-gooders” used to describe pro-gun control po-po. That fits here. In fact, I reckon Montgomery County Police Chief Thomas Manger is a political hack with a badge…a lousy combination by any standard.
