Also, last year a bill that would change Maryland's gun laws to honor a Virginia CHP narrowly failed in a committee vote.
This year it is being tried again and Maryland Shall Issue is requesting that Virginia gun owners send in comments supporting the measure. The bill is being considered tomorrow (Tue, Jan. 25) at 1 PM., so we need to get cracking!

Suggested "Email Message" (feel free to customize):
Please SUPPORT HB-9, Delegate Smigiel's bill that allow concealed handgun permit holders from surrounding states to carry concealed handguns in Maryland. Virginia is considering similar legislation and I would hope that gun owners from both sides of the Maryland/Virginia border would be able to protect themselves as they visit each other's state.
