I have said it before but it bears repeating, gun laws do not prevent criminals from getting and using guns any more than drug laws keep people from getting and using drugs.
Maryland is a liberal/progressive state that does not believe in the Constitution or freedom. That might have changed a bit with the election of Larry Hogan but his election appears to be more related to the economy and taxes than the gun laws though pro Second Amendment voters were certainly motivated this year.
In any event, the laws were enacted under Martin O’Malley and Anthony Brown and the stated goal was to lower gun related crime. The real goal was to get votes and to restrict people but liberals can never say what they really want to do or they would be rejected outright.
Looks like these laws are working so well that Baltimore, which has long been the gun crime area of the state, has been listed as one of the most violent cities in the world.
Read that again. Baltimore is not simply one of the most violent cities in our country; no it is one of the most violent in the WORLD.
Think about all the violent places in the Middle East and all the places where people are ruled by tyrannical governments and Baltimore ranks right up there with them (and probably ahead of some of them).
The Second Amendment, despite what liberals claim, is there to protect a preexisting God given right for free people to keep and bear arms. The primary purpose is to ensure people are armed and able to resist a tyrannical government and that is why liberals want so badly to take that right away.
They know they are tyrants and they know they can never rule over people completely until those people have been stripped of their right to resist.
Martin O’Malley and Anthony Brown are two such tyrants and they pushed their gun bill through in order to further restrict people and to tighten their grip on the collective throats of the citizens of Maryland.
Fortunately, Brown lost his bid to become the governor but that is only a small part of the problem. Annapolis is full of liberal/progressives who want nothing more than to force their will upon the people.
Gun control does not work with regard to its stated purpose and it will not work with regard to the unstated purpose of removing the means to resist.
At least so long as patriots are willing to stand up to the tyranny.
Never surrender, never submit.
