Default Meanwhile, in Maryland, yeah, Maryland

I know that my state isn't on the forefront of the right of the people to keep and bear arms but what I saw yesterday in Maryland's state capital of Annapolis was encouraging. My estimate of between two and three thousand people showed up at a rally hastily organized by several gun rights groups, headed by Maryland Shall Issue and strongly supported by the National Rifle Association actually inspired a glimmer of hope that my state won't go the way of New York.

Leading with a local liberal news paper article, even they couldn't ignore the thousands of opponents to the governor's proposed gun legislation.

Here are some videos I took of the event. I wish I would have had the battery to record everyone, I missed some really great speakers.

Fantastic. Hopefully these legislators can see the "writing on the wall" if they support/introduce unconstitutional laws. IMO, some are crawfishing (backing up) already in fear of being voted out.

HAHAHA, at first I thought you meant "playing chess" as in attempting a politically risky maneuver with a lot at stake, then I see the video and the guy is literally playing Chess.

I should be sad but I find this to be hilarious.

MD State Senator Jamie Raskin Caught On Camera

Reader Elliotte in MD sends the following pic (click to embiggen it) he found at mdshooters.com: “This is a picture of state senator Jamie Raskin (D-Montgomery County) playing chess on his laptop during the hearing. The hearing was split into 8 hours of testimony, 4 hours each for the pro and anti sides divided into alternating 1-hour segements. My guess is this occurred during one of the pro-gun hour-long slots.” It’s good to see the senator so actively engaged in the meaningful conversation about guns we’ve needed in this country for so long
