A Maryland Sheriff announced he will not comply with gun confiscation laws. Maryland is currently attempting to pass a law that would create long gun licensing confiscation.
Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis told ‘Delmarva Now’ he and his officers ‘will not comply’ with a gun confiscation law. He lashed out on the Maryland lawmakers claiming they are punishing law abiding residents for the high crime rates in the state.
Lewis stated, “Law-abiding citizens are repeatedly being penalized because of Baltimore City’s inability to control their crime. And I’m sorry — I’m not someone’s puppet. I’m going to stand up for what I think is unjust and unconstitutional to the American people, including those living in the state in Maryland.”
He added, “We’re gonna let them know that we are sick and tired of being penalized for Baltimore City’s inability to control crime. If these bills pass, we will not comply.”
Maryland’s House Bill 786 will regulate shotguns, hunting rifles, and handguns. The bill will require a license for these guns in an attempt to create a gun registry. The only reason a government would need a gun registry would be to have a mass gun confiscation.
