Gun control opponents gear up for a fight at the polls. A petition drive called Free State Petition may soon be up and running.
But, as political reporter Pat Warren reports, even some of the staunchest Second Amendment advocates think the petition is ill-advised.
Gun groups brought thousands of gun rights advocates to Annapolis to fight the governor’s gun bill in the General Assembly, but they will use lawyers to fight it in court.
“This bill is clearly unconstitutional. It goes against our rights,” Delegate Neil Parrott said.
Gun groups have decided it is better to go to court than to the polls, because of Second Amendment constitutional guarantees.
