Senate panel approves death penalty repeal, altered gun bill
Soooooo, The only purpose these assault weapons have is to kill lots of people quickly. We are absolutely, totally and complettely opposed to them.......as long as it doesn't take any money out of our pockets. We really like money. We like money so much don't we care if it has some blood on it. The Maryland Legislature is not afraid to take a firm moral stance against something. As long as they get to keep the tax revenues generated by the manufacture and sales of that thing they are morally outraged by and therefore firmly against.The committee also carved out an exemption to allow the manufacture of assault weapons to be sold outside Maryland — a nod to Beretta USA, headquartered in Prince George's County.
Will the Maryland Legislature be delivering this good news to the people of Connecticut and other states that have suffered rampage shootings with these weapons? Great news! We're going to continue to allow assault weapons to be manufactured here in Maryland to be sold in YOUR state to guys like Adam Lanza to kill YOUR children with. We won't allow them be sold in Maryland. They're too dangerous. Those damned things are just baby killing guns. But we don't mind if the tax revenue we receive from the manufacturer has YOUR childrens blood on it. It spends just the same as money without blood on it and that's what's really important here. That we get money to spend.
It is obviously past time for Marylanders to amend the Maryland
Constitution to allow for Ballot Initiatives. That way we can propose and vote on our own laws. Like a law that would give Marylanders the right buy anything manufactured in the state of Maryland. Anything that the legislature prohibts Marylanders from buying cannot be manufactured in the state.
