The majority of Marylanders, including many responsible gun owners, support common sense legislation to prevent gun violence. But the PR wing of the NRA, lobbyists for gun manufacturers, and others who want to block any and all gun safety ideas would have you to believe otherwise. For weeks, they’ve been spreading falsehoods and using scare tactics to mislead Marylanders.
They may be shouting louder, but Marylanders know better. Here are a few of the voices that have been drowned out by the NRA propaganda machine.
They are joined by many organizations including:
Maryland Police Chiefs
MD State Conference of NAACP
American Academy of Pediatrics
American Psychiatric Association
Advocates for Children and Youth
Baltimore Jewish Council
Central Maryland Ecumenical Council
Marylanders Against Gun Violence
One Million Moms 4 Gun Control
Maryland Network Against Domestic Violence
Maryland Center against sexual assault
Women’s Law Center
Unitarian Universalist Legislative Mission of Maryland
Ecumenical Leaders Group
And thousands more Marylanders across our State
