Hey all –
Gov. Hogan signed SB 736 into law today.
If you're planning to cover, here's a quote from Chris Cox:
"On behalf of the NRA's five million members, we applaud Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan for signing into law Senate Bill 736 today. This is a necessary piece of legislation that removes a burdensome and ineffective regulation from the books," said Chris W. Cox, executive director of the NRA's Institute for Legislative Action.
Here's the alert we sent out:
Maryland: Pro-Gun Bill Becomes Law
Your NRA-ILA is glad to report that Governor Larry Hogan (R) has signed into law Senate Bill 736.
As previously reported, SB 736, sponsored by state Senator Edward Reilly (R-33), will eliminate the unnecessary database and failed ballistic fingerprint system from state law. This pro-gun bill will remove an unnecessary burden from firearm manufacturers who are required to continue sending shell cases to a program that has been unfunded for years. SB 736 was unanimously passed by the Maryland Senate on April 11, and passed by the House of Delegates on a 135 to 2 vote on April 13.
Please contact Governor Larry Hogan and thank him for signing this important piece of legislation into law.
Thank you to NRA members and Second Amendment supporters who contacted their elected officials in support of these important laws. Your support helped make the 2015 legislative session a successful one.
