The President of Maryland Shall Issue has requested our help in getting the word out. We’ve seen what happened in New York and Maryland could be next. Gov. Martin O’Malley (D-MD) like Andrew Cuomo has his eyes on the White House and is not above trashing the Second Amendment to get there.
We published our “Call To Action” a few days back and folks have been hitting their reps in the statehouse pretty solid. Lawmakers are on alert, and we haven’t even seen the full text of the coming bills yet. We are told that O’Malley was looking to catch up to Cuomo, but this was before yesterday’s presser with Obama. That is being viewed by some up here with mixed feelings. It seemed more propaganda than motion, and with Harry Reid suggesting he won’t let an AWB move, there are bets back and forth on which direction O’Malley will swing, and just how hard he will press. I think we are going to have one hell of a fight, either way.
I had the pleasure of meeting Patrick at the 2012 Gun Rights Policy Conference. He and Maryland Shall Issue are really on top of things and know how to leverage technology to their advantage. I’m glad he’s on our side and not the side of the gun prohibitionists.
