    Sheriff Lewis and Delegate Smigiel Star in Educational OC Video

    You can view the video here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GKtkefEcDQY

    The reason for the theatrics (pun intended )? To advance Maryland to a shall issue state. Obviously, this is being done at the expense of long-gun OC.

The easiest way to prevent concern of citizens and police associated with viewing the open display of firearms associated with “open carry” is to pass shall issue “concealed carry” in Maryland.
    Given long-gun OC is off limits on this forum we won't discuss the implications that this video may or may not have for that means of carry. Rather, on a positive note hopefully this could eventually result in shall-issue permit handgun OC. This is within reach given the current legislation around handgun carry. So, if a shall-issue provision is enacted, and all else remains unchanged- it's a win.

    More specifically, this video may have been used to advocate Maryland HB 0062:

    OK, the sheriff is told by the citizen that the citizen wants to exercise his 2a right, the sheriff does not tell the citizen that it is against the law, the sheriff says phew and wow and then says I can't let you do that. As if a citizen needs the sheriff's permission to exercise fundamental rights!
