  1. Truman had the "Little White House" in Key West Florida. That's even further south than President Trump's Southern White House. https://www.trumanlittlewhitehouse.com/
  2. I know from a co-worker who was on work release it is not a sunup to sundown situation. They can't leave before a certain hour and must be back by a certain hour. Also, if I am not mistaken if an inmate is on work release they do pay room and board back to the county. I doubt it is more than a token amount but it's something.
  3. No Problem. This link filtered out just the Crimes and Punishment bills. http://mgaleg.maryland.gov/webmga/frmMain.aspx?id=crimesp&stab=01&pid=narrowsubjpage&tab=subject3&ys=2018RS There are quite a few. Look under status to see where the bill is in the process. The same terminologies I listed in my previous post apply.
  4. Yea, that will teach those nasty old fossil fuel users a lesson.
  5. HB 1029 was passed by both chambers and is waiting for the Governor's action. Here is a link to the final language of the bill. If it looks different than the one you looked at you may have been looking at the First Reader instead of the Third Reader. The bill was amended in the House Judiciary Committee so the fimal language will look different than it did when it was introduced. http://mgaleg.maryland.gov/2018RS/bills/hb/hb1029t.pdf
  6. Here are links to all the House and Senate bills and their status as of Today 4/15. You have to scroll through the lists but each bill has a number and a title which is fairly descriptive. If a bill has Chapter and a # it has been signed by the Governor. If it has Returned Passed/Passed Enrolled it has cleared both chambers and is waiting for the Governor to sign, veto, or let stand and be enacted by his non-action. If it has a hearing date only it was not even voted on in committee, if it has Unfavorable Report that means it was voted down in committee. So if you are looking to see what passed look for a Chapter number, or Returned Passed or Passed Enrolled. If you want more detail click on the History or Documents link. The Text for the Third Reader of a passed bill, in its Chamber of origin, is what the final language looks like. http://mgaleg.maryland.gov/pubs-current/current-senate-status-report.pdf http://mgaleg.maryland.gov/pubs-current/current-house-status-report.pdf There were 1269 Senate bills and 1832 House Bills, not counting Joint Bills. I forgot to add that if a bill was introduced late it will have a First Reading Senate Rules and date or First Reading House Rules and Executive Nominations and a date. Either of those may also be Unfavorable. As I have said before dealing with the General Assembly and its processes can be convoluted. Voting records are in the Documents Section of each bill.
  7. The law references Heller and not all firearms are protected
  8. As I have often said I'm not a lawyer but if applies they can refuse service based on what organization you belong to the reverse should hold true as well. Of course as I am sure we both understand this refusal can't be based on a protected class. IIRC, there have been challenges based on the right to free association and these failed. You are free to be in an organization but the business does not have to serve you.
  9. It looks like they took out the "in good faith" part too, when they took out the "concerned others".
  10. Good link. I think the Second Amendment Foundation might win this one. The 10 day grace period is well over.
  11. The "assault weapons" had to be removed, made inoperable, or turned in within 90 days or the possessor would face prosecution, and I would suppose the weapons would be confiscated. See Page 5 section (D) https://www.ispfsb.com/public/Firearms/Ordinances/highlandpark.pdf As an edit: I reread the law and yes confiscation was definitely in the law. In Section (E) it states "surrendered or confiscated".
  12. I don't know. I haven't read the whole law or case. Until I have a chance maybe someone else knows.
  13. I looked up the Highland Park case and it does seem convincing that it would hold true in this case. This new challenge Ibrilhim posted is aimed at Deerfield overstepping its bounds with regards to state law. From the article it sounds like a logical argument. I wonder why the Highland Park case was upheld since this state law was in place at the time? I am curious to see how this turns out.
  14. The final version of Maryland's HB1302 passed both chambers. The Senate added 31 pages of amendments! I haven't read the final version yet to see what it ended up looking like. Here is a link to the final Enrolled Version, all 44 pages of it. What happened was the Senate essentially erased the entire House version, amended it to be what they wanted to see and the House finally agreed. http://mgaleg.maryland.gov/2018RS/bills/hb/hb1302e.pdf The House refused to concur on the Senate amendments and asked them to Recede There was a Conference Committee appointed. Apparently the Senate said no to receding and the Conference Committee voted to concur. Here is the bill history. http://mgaleg.maryland.gov/webmga/frmMain.aspx?pid=billpage&stab=03&id=hb1302&tab=subject3&ys=2018RS Isn't it amazing how fast things can happen when they want it to?
  15. I hope this works but I doubt it will. Occasionally some legislator would put up token resistance but if they want to even think about getting a bill to the Governor's desk they have to knuckle under to the Beer Barons Busch and Miller. This is an attempt to unseat Mike Miller and it will be tough.
