Maryland: Gov. Hogan Vetoes Ban on Private Transfers of Long Guns

Gun Rights

Today, Governor Larry Hogan issued a veto on Senate Bill 208 and House Bill 4.  Gov. Hogan knows that restricting law-abiding citizens will do nothing to stop criminals.  In his statement on the veto, he reaffirmed his priority to “hold violent criminals accountable” for their actions.  Please click the button below to thank Gov. Hogan.

These bills would have banned the sale or transfer of long guns between private individuals without first paying fees and obtaining government permission.  Firearm transfers such as loans and gifts between friends, neighbors, or fellow hunters, would not have been exempted.  Research shows such proposals have no impact on violent crime and Gov. Hogan is to be commended for refusing to recognize the false claims pushed by anti-gun advocates on this legislation.    

Your NRA would like to thank Gov. Hogan for protecting the Second Amendment rights of law-abiding Marylanders.
