Several hundred people descended on Annapolis to rally in support of Second Amendment Rights.
The 2A Tuesday Rally comes nearly a year after the General Assembly passed sweeping gun control legislation requiring fingerprint to purchase a gun and restricting the sizes of magazines that can be sold in the state.
“It isn’t good enough to just be reactive and try to defeat bad legislation, as supporters of the Second Amendment we need to be proactive in defending our liberties,” Del. Michael D. Smigiel Sr., R-Upper Shore, said in a statement.
Smigiel, who is sponsoring a repeal of the 2013 gun control legislation, organized the event in Lawyers Mall near the steps of the Maryland State House.
In addition to the rally, legislators plan a series of seminars on digital activism, best practices when testifying before legislative committees and on legislative issues regarding firearms bills in Annapolis.
