Maryland Considers Bill To Confiscate Guns From 110,000 Registered Gun Owners - Bearing Arms

Now, who could argue that we dont want criminals having guns, this is a no brainer right.. after all, they arent going to take the guns away from the law abiding people... oh wait, you were arrested for driving on a suspended license, BAM, NO GUNS FOR YOU. and you have an unpaid speeding ticket from another state and there is a warrant out for your arrest; BAM, NO GUNS FOR YOU...

this is how they attack.. first they force you to register, then they create this cross referencing BS that "no normal person could argue against because we just want to take guns away from people who arent supposed to have them" THEEEENNNNNNN, they change the list of people who arent allowed to have them to include anyone that is a smoker, drinker, has a daily coffee, took anti depressants when they lost a loved one, was labelled with ADD or ADHD by some liberal ass school psychologist (because they are just doing what they are told).

Sometimes the media can also swing too far the other way. Read what they actually said:

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.

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.

So the thing that the author SHOULD have focused on is the fact that there should be NO convicted felons with REGISTERED guns. Unless of course they received a relief from Civil Disabilities, but that in fact is relatively rare, and would allow them to possess the guns legally.

This would appear to be another example of some dope in elected office making it up as they go along.

I would agree if the word felony was defined by violent crime. It's not so the whole who would want criminals owning guns argument doesn't work for me. Also if the justice system had any faith in there own system why wouldn't they trust people that they reformed? Oh wait nobody has faith in it. A rochester cop was just shot by a man that had no business being out of prison. He served less time then someone that writes a bad check could and his last conviction was for holding an illegal handgun to an old man's head to take his wallet. Fix the liberal crap box system and leave us alone.
