Two more Maryland Sheriffs have joined their Wicomico counterpart in the hopes of striking down two newly proposed gun laws.
The bills would add a Colt AR-15 Sporter H-Bar rifle to the list of regulated firearms and require people to obtain a license in order to buy shotguns.
Right now in Maryland, only handgun owners are required to carry a license.
According to DelMarvanow.com, both the Worcester and Somerset County sheriffs have joined Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis in opposing the bills.
Sheriff Lewis spoke out against the bills earlier this week. He said he would not allow his deputies to enforce the regulations if they were to be passed into law. He said it would be like sending a deputy on a “suicide mission.”
Worcester County Sheriff Matthew Crisafulli said on the Office’s Facebook page that he is a firm believe in the second amendment, which is why he’s opposing the bill.
Somerset County Sheriff Howard posted a photo of himself and other law enforcement leaders at the State Senate in Annapolis.
They were all there this week to voice their opinions about the proposed gun laws to state representatives.
Both bills are now being debated on the House floor. No vote has been scheduled as of yet.
