The deep Blue, Democrat-ruled States are seemingly having a contest with each other to see whose laws can damage Second Amendment laws the most. And they'll use any means fair or foul to accomplish it.
Prospective gun buyers in the state of Maryland are experiencing unheard of delays in getting background checks processed, according to sources like the Maryland Shooter's Forum.The process usually takes 7 days, but delays of 3 weeks are now the norm.
The Maryland Star-Democrat reported on the unheard of delay, but blames it on the fact that Maryland is subject to Federal as well as state laws. The gaping hole in that nonsense is that Maryland gun buyers have always been subject to the same laws - so why the delay now?
The answer to our riddle? Maryland's Democrats just shoved the strictest gun laws in the country though the state legislature and sent it to Governor Martin O'Malley for his signature. And the new law will prevent most of the delayed buyers from getting the firearms they purchased weeks ago.
The connection is obvious...the background checks were deliberately delayed until the new law passed in order to deny Maryland residents their Second Amendment rights
The new law bans yet another large group of weapons, limits magazines to 10 rounds, and forces handgun buyers to be fingerprinted like criminals and submit their fingerprints to state police.
And Maryland already has stiff laws, including universal statewide background checks and a seven-day waiting period to buy a gun, twice that of most states.
The bill also calls for $25 million for schools to invest in security such as locks, cameras and buzzer entrance systems s well as $4.6 million implement the bill and pay for state police employees to enforce the law.
Some of that money may very well end being raised by an increased tax on ammunition,or mandatory liability insurance for gun owners. These tactics are all being discussed by the usual suspects as I write this.
If you live in a Blue State, this and more is undoubtedly coming your way soon.
