Maryland Plans To Confiscate Over 100,000 Guns In Door To Door Raids


More than 100,000 individuals in Maryland could become disqualified from owning their registered gun under a bill currently under consideration by state lawmakers.

According to the Associated Press, the Maryland House of Delegates is debating a proposal that would link the state’s gun and criminal registries, enabling law enforcement officials to more effectively seize firearms in the possession of those convicted of felonies or violent crimes.

Maryland Plans To Confiscate Over 100,000 Guns In Door To Door Raids

Under Maryland law, anyone convicted of such crimes is required to relinquish their firearms. However, the chief sponsor of the proposed bill, Delegate Luiz Simmons (D-Montgomery Couny), said the law is incapable of truly being enforced if police cannot use their database to pinpoint the individuals in question.

If passed into law, the new bill would require police to run a check twice a year in search of convicted felons with registered guns. Police, meanwhile, believe the linked systems would lead them to disqualify 10 percent of registered gun owners. That amounts to approximately 110,000 people.

As noted by the AP, California passed a similar law back in 2007. In a statement released by Simmons, the lawmaker said that since linking its registries, the California has collected more than 10,000 guns from convicted felons and is working on rounding up another 40,000.

Meanwhile, another Maryland bill targeting gun transactions has been proposed. According to the Baltimore Sun, the bill would prohibit gun sales from moving forward until a background check if fully completed. Currently, dealers may hand over a firearm after one week, even if the background check is still in process.

However, gun rights advocates have blasted the bill, saying it would allow the state to indefinitely delay gun sales because of a backlog of background checks that already need to be processed.

Consideration of these bills comes a little more than a month after a public shooting in Columbia, Maryland when a gunman opened fire in a local mall, killing two people and injuring another before taking his own life.

    I think “authorities” should pass legislation everyone has to dye their hair with red, white, and blue streaks and if you don’t its a felony and you have to give up everything as that is open rebellion against duly passed legislation. The shit that goes for government using pretended legislation against society increasingly threatens everyone with torture and murder. This is a open identifiable agenda of anarchy and destruction from satanics impersonating public officers. Maryland will get the Boston bombing treatment and the society will just fold, this is open warfare and people are so deadened to morals and principles of justice that this filth is the norm. Just take your pick of whatever level of public office and the wrong use of power and public trust is systemic, but what’s a communist to do except exist to steal, murder and destroy. The east coast is gone as far as any capacity to correct this overthrow and sedition coming from the impersonators in public office, even when they advertise their death squads will be roaming freely and increasingly through out the communities. If the bloods and crips had moved in claiming the same assault on a neighborhood everyone could identify the breakdown of order. But use the mind-drug of “government” and wholesale murder of the Pol Pot killing fields will be met with the public marching out of their homes into the concentration camps and death camps. The country is gone as far as any social order and adherence to principles of justice. Maryland is the Alpha test ground.
