Sounds like a reasonable starting point:

"Maryland's gun laws are now among the strictest in the nation.

Governor Martin O'Malley signed the sweeping gun control measure Thursday. Under the new legislation, which the governor helped push through the General Assembly, anyone buying a handgun will have to submit fingerprints to obtain a license. The bill also bans 45 types of assault weapons, but those who own the weapons before the law goes into effect will be allowed to keep them.

Gun magazines will be limited to 10 bullets, gun ownership by people who have been involuntarily committed to a mental health facility will be banned, and Maryland State Police will be able to suspend the licenses of gun dealers who fail to comply with recordkeeping obligations."

No problem with the finger printing.

Big problem with the "assault weapons" ban.

Big problem with 10 ROUND magazine limit.

You can bet your ass that criminals will be packing pre-ban, high cap mags. If a law-abiding opponent does not take them out with the first ten rounds, the criminal will just run up and blow his brains out before he can insert his second mag, IF he has one.

Thanks, Libs!

I'm with you on this. Get these awful guns out of our homes and neighborhoods. We already had an assault weapons ban in place before, we should just reinstate it. No one should have to live next to someone who has those types of military guns. And hey, if you can't hit what you're hunting with 10 shots, you better get a new hobby.

Oakwell has AR's and 5.56 ammo. Walmart had three Colt AR's in this week. At cost! The gun 'freak-out' is over, let's not restart it. At least until the next mass shooting.

You're in favor of sweeping gun control measures. We get it.

Since you're such a staunch proponent of a society with very strict gun control, might I suggest a few options for you?

Let's see...North Korea, Saudi Arabia, Iran, Iraq, Russia, and China come to mind. They all have exactly what you're in favor of.

I'm sure they would welcome you with open arms. And you won't have to trouble yourself arguing against any Constitutional rights.

Because there, you won't have any.

Let me know if you need help with your ticket.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
MAGPUL INDUSTRIES ANNOUNCES LAWSUIT TO INVALIDATE COLORADO GUN CONTROL MEASURES

Denver, Colorado – May 17th, 2013 - Magpul Industries, an Erie, Colorado, based manufacturer of firearms accessories, announced today that it has joined 53 Colorado County Sheriffs and other plaintiffs in filing a lawsuit this morning to invalidate gun control measures recently passed by the Colorado legislature and enacted by Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper.

The lawsuit was filed in U.S. District Court and establishes that Colorado House Bill 1224 (magazine restrictions) and House Bill 1229 (universal background checks) violate the constitutional rights of lawful gun owners located in Colorado.

Duane Liptak, Director of Product Management and Marketing for Magpul Industries, said that these gun control laws do nothing other than restrict the ability of law abiding citizens to defend themselves and Magpul is committed to invalidating these infringements:

“Colorado’s recently passed gun control laws are a direct assault on the constitutional rights of the responsible people who live in and visit this great state. These laws will do nothing to enhance public safety and only place unreasonable limitations on the ability of law abiding citizens to defend themselves. While Magpul is currently in the process of moving its operations out of Colorado, we will not turn our back on our native state. Extreme gun control interests have forced the passage of these unconstitutional laws in Colorado, and as a company, we are resolved to restore those rights to the people.”

Magpul’s outside legal counsel, Jon Anderson, of Holland & Hart LLP, said that the Colorado gun control bills are unconstitutional and so poorly drafted that the new laws would be enforced in an inconsistent manner:

“Colorado’s gun control laws are in direct conflict with the U.S. Constitution. In addition, these bills were so poorly drafted that no one agrees on the scope of the government regulation. If teams of lawyers cannot agree on what these bills prohibit, how can we expect citizens to abide by these laws and how can we rely on law enforcement to implement these laws in a consistent manner?”

Magpul will continue to support productive efforts to FREE COLORADO from government regulations that imperil the rights of law abiding firearm owners.

Once this is won by Magpul, the NRA and Sheriffs, it will have a ripple affect accross the nation having all states remove laws limiting magazines ect. 2nd amendment rights SHALL NOT BE INFRINGED.

So you got Magpul Industries Corporation, a firearms and firearms accessory maker in Colorado since 1999, filing a lawsuit to roll back what the voters voted for, namely sensible gun control safety legislation.

Of course all the crazy Republicans are on board with the roll back because they believe corporations are people too. In fact, many think corporations have more rights than people. I disagree.

Leading up to the vote, Magpul Industries threatened very vocally to move their business and all the jobs if voters voted in favor of this legislation.

Voters voted what was best for their state and families and of course Magpul Industries didn't follow through with their move, just more hot corporate air. Now they file this frivolous lawsuit wasting tax dollars saying screw-you to the voters of Colorado.

The sooner the citizens of the Great State of Georgia start backing voters desires like this initiative and not corporate demands, the better off we'll become.

Support sensible, intelligent gun safety control legislation - like the voters in Colorado.

And ignore Republicans.

Actually, the voters did not vote for this. The politions did. That will be taken care of in due time. You will see many changes in the next elections. Some maybe sooner than later.

As for suing the state of Colorado, that lawsuit was brought on by sheriffs in the state. Magpul and the NRA is just throwing some weight behind it and support behind it.

Anon already blew big holes in most of your post (i.e.- "the voters voted for it."), so I'll let that part slide, after pointing out that the basis of your argument (voters choice) was completely wrong, and knowingly so. That alone renders the remainder of your post not worth the time it takes to read it.

If you're going to make a fact-based argument, it's best if the facts are actually true. Then again, based on your Republican-bashing, that's exactly what I would expect from a Pelosi or Obama worshipper. Never let the facts, or the truth, obscure your agenda.

Fortunately for those of us who are responsible gun owners, when the actual debate does take place in Georgia, there will be a voice of reason...armed with facts...to counter the paranoid ramblings of those who would see us reduced to a socialist state.

Yes, I apologize and stand corrected. The legislation was not voter driven, I mistakenly thought it was and said so. However, per the ABC news article, one Senator stated 90 percent of the citizens supported it. I presume that was from type statewide polling, so in essence it was from the voter, if not technically so.

Regardless, any new gun safety legislation and regulation in any state will be met with legal challenges, Georgia too. There are enough gun crazies gullible people along with the NRA and gun industry to make that happen, no question. They would like a more guns and guns everywhere, whereas the rest of us, which happen to be the majority, don't.

Another mass shooting or or two or five or ten will push the necessary safety legislation through the statehouses. In the meantime, the gun crazy crowd essentially condones those shootings by resisting reasonable change, like that enacted in Colorado, Maryland, New York, etc. I'm not exactly sure how those people sleep at night with that on their head. I mean come on, would it kill you to make the country a safer place by getting a handle on the epidemic of gun shootings and deaths though better legislation? I don't think so. So consider getting on board and being part of the solution, not part of the problem.
