Maryland main man Martin O’Malley made it official yesterday, joining some of his fellow east coast Democrat governors, in what the Washington Post describes as a “major victory.” What’s the big win? Making the now laughably-named Free State one of the most difficult in which an individual can exercise his RKBA. In addition to banning virtually all semi-auto rifles and mags that hold more than ten rounds, “under Maryland’s law, those seeking to buy any gun other than a hunting rifle or shotgun will need to first obtain a license, a process that will include submitting fingerprints, passing classroom and firing-range training, and undergoing more extensive background checks.” The NRA has pledged a lawsuit and supporters of the new restrictions vow to launch a PR campaign to raise public support. After the fact. And in Maryland, that apparently works.
