    Candidate’s gun control plan even harsher than new law

    From the Guns Across America Maryland Facebook page

    Ten days away from implementation of Maryland’s more stringent laws on gun purchases, licensing and training, Second Amendment advocates might be wondering if it could possibly get any worse for gun owners.

    One House of Delegates candidate from Bethesda, Jordan Cooper, issued a proposal Wednesday that lives up to the worst fears of gun owners. But it might have appeal inside the Beltway in the district now represented by Sen. Brian Frosh, floor leader of the new control law.

    Cooper’s plan includes a total ban on assault rifles, biennial renewal of gun licenses, and government confiscation of guns not properly licensed or renewed.

    Here’s the full text of Cooper’s proposal, tied to Monday’s killings at the Washington Navy Yard, where the shooter’s original weapon of mass murder was a shotgun, still one of the firearms easiest to obtain.

    The full text

    “In the light of this week’s horrific massacre of innocent civilians at nearby Washington, D.C.’s Navy Yard, Jordan P. Cooper today released his legislative plan to begin combatting gun violence in Maryland and ensuring the safety of all our citizens.

    The proposed legislative language reads:

    WHEREAS firearms have taken the lives of far too many Americans; and,

    WHEREAS firearms have increasingly been used in the perpetration of national tragedies; and,

    WHEREAS current firearm regulations have proven insufficient at thwarting public massacres; and,

    WHEREAS encouraging responsibility and accountability among gun owners is in the interests of all Marylanders; and,


    1. THAT all assault rifles, without exceptions for those firearms grandfathered in recent legislation, be outlawed in Maryland.

    2. THAT to provide for responsible gun ownership in Maryland, all
    firearms will be registered in a statewide database and that all firearm registrations will be regularly renewed on a biannual (24 months) basis.

    3. THAT all firearms lacking registration with the state or having
    expired registrations be surrendered to the State and that the State proactively seek to retrieve and confiscate all firearms with expired registrations exceeding six months.

    4. THAT every firearm recovered from the scene of a crime or
    discovered to be in the possession of a convicted felon is cross-listed with this firearms registry database.

    5. THAT to penalize straw purchasing of firearms, the owner of
    every firearm used in a homicide or robbery be penalized in accordance with the determination of the Secretary for the crime regardless of their (non)-involvement in the crime.

    Cooper has a master’s degree from John Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health.

    (Looks like his master's degree was a total waste of time and money.)

    With reference to the recent mass murder in a gun free zone by a man with LEGAL shotgun and U.S. Government SECRET clearance:
    This is the kind of case that provides the excuse for the left to try to simply ban ALL firearms. Their "SPIN" will be that just passing laws against certain guns, or taking guns into prohibited places etc. has been PROVEN by precisely this kind of tragedy to not make people safe...the only solution in their minds is to "Pick'em ALL UP. NO private ownership...period.
    I believe that before too long we are going to see a movement to enact something Senator Feinstein has wanted for a LONG TIME....(emphasis mine)
    From Infowars:
    In 1995, Feinstein lamented the failure of an earlier effort to take out the Second Amendment. “If I could have gotten 51 votes in the Senate of the United States for an outright ban, picking up every one of them,” she told 60 Minutes. “Mr. and Mrs. America,[/b] turn ‘em all in,[/b] I would have done it. I could not do that. The votes weren’t here.”
    SO...there's the REAL objective. Of course, a lot of folks will tell you something like "They'll NEVER get that done".
    Yea right...and America will NEVER elect a muslim community organizer with zero experience or accomplishments to the office of the Presidency either.
    All Ya'll better wake up..!!!!!!!

    I think we need to separate the country in two different state, the United States, and Romerica, Romerica would be any population center of over say 50,000, they could create their own laws, in their jurisdiction, the borders would be sealed, they would need passports and visas to leave their area, and if they wanted to become a citizen of the United States they would have to go through a stringent back round check, if they had ever participated in any left leaning attitudes they would be deported back to their former location.

    Sorry for all you fellas in the cities, but that is where 99% of the stupidity lays when it come to common sense about gun laws, I know there are some people in the smaller burgs that are ultra liberal, but the rest of the sane voters would rule

    The Maryland legislature and executive branch are replete with Lunatic Fringe Democrats. That is why 5 western counties want to secede from the state.


    September 16, 2013
    Five western Maryland counties -- Carroll, Frederick, Allegany, Garrett, and Washington -- have joined a movement that appears to be growing across the country, Fox News said Sunday. Fed up with a state legislature run by liberal Democrats, residents of the counties want to secede and form their own state.

    There is already precedent for allowing counties to secede from a state. The state of West Virginia is made up from Virginia counties who seceded and formed their own state during the War Between The States. Should still be permissible for counties in other states to secede as well...Bill
