Maryland Political hacks seek Ban on Semi-Auto Firearms

State Senator Michael Lenett (D-19) introduced Senate Bill 516, a bill that would designate certain firearms as "assault weapons" and would prohibit the possession, transfer or receipt of these firearms by law-abiding Maryland residents. The bill has been assigned to the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee.
Lenett’s extreme attack...should not be taken lightly...
Specifically this bill would…
- Prohibit most semi-automatic pistols. The bill defines any semi-automatic pistol as an "assault weapon," if it can be fitted with a threaded barrel. Virtually all modern semi-automatic pistols 9mm and above use barrels that are readily removable and replaceable, of course.
- Prohibit semi-automatic shotguns configured for home protection with a pistol grip and folding stock, regardless of barrel length or magazine capacity.
- Prohibit versions of the AR-15 that are currently legal in California by prohibiting any detachable magazine semi-automatic rifle that could be fitted with a pistol grip. California bans this kind of rifle only if it is fitted with a pistol grip.
- Prohibit anyone who lives outside Maryland from bringing an AR-15, M1A, or other such rifle into the state for lawful purposes, such as a training class or marksmanship competition...

In pushing for any "assault weapon" restriction, especially one with a broader definition, gun control supporters prove that they are motivated entirely by their warped ideology and cultural bias against gun owners, and care nothing for the facts or the rights of the American people.
With no coherent reason to ban semi-automatic firearms among honest, law-abiding residents in Maryland, SB 516 is nothing more than posturing by an extreme anti-gun politician
