    There is a bill that if passed will no longer allow the sale or transfer of any firearm with a detachable magazine and a single "scary feature" (ie tele-stock, pistol grip, flashhider, even thumbhole stocks are considered scary).

    I am a little more moderate about gun laws than most people on GT would like, but for those of you who are against any infringement, heres a heads up. (not saying I am for SB0516, but I am not against all of it)

    Today from NRA-ILA:
    <table class="MsoNormalTable" style="width: 100%;" border="0" cellpadding="0" cellspacing="0" width="100%"><tbody><tr style=""><td style="padding: 0in;">
    Senate Bill 516- "Assault Weapons" Ban WITHDRAWN by Sponsor<o:p></o:p>

    </td> </tr> <tr style=""> <td style="padding: 0in;"> [FONT=&quot]Thanks to the massive opposition and outcry against this extreme anti-gun bill, the sponsor has elected to withdraw the legislation. Senate Bill 516 would have prohibited the possession, transfer or receipt of these firearms by law-abiding Maryland residents. <o:p></o:p>[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]<o:p> </o:p>[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]Specifically this bill would have. <o:p></o:p>[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]<o:p> </o:p>[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]- Prohibited 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.<o:p></o:p>[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]<o:p> </o:p>[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]- Prohibited semi-automatic shotguns configured for home protection with a pistol grip and folding stock, regardless of barrel length or magazine capacity.<o:p></o:p>[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]<o:p> </o:p>[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]- Prohibited 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. <o:p></o:p>[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]<o:p> </o:p>[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]- Prohibited 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. <o:p></o:p>[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]<o:p> </o:p>[/FONT]
    [FONT=&quot]This is a well deserved victory for Maryland's law-abiding gun owners but we still must remain vigilant to the threats posed by a multitude of anti-gun bills still making their way around the Maryland General Assembly."[/FONT]

    The author of the bill should have known better than to submit this nonsense to begin with.
