    It's about half way down on this page.

    http://www.oag.state.md.us/lawenforcement.htm

    We need to contact the Ag's office and have it taken down. It dates from the Glendening days.



    Read this, it's almost comical.

    Joseph Curran Jr. is a known rabbid anti-Second Amendment, anti self defensefigure.

    http://www.theamericanview.com/index.php?id=617

    Maryland Attorney General J. Joseph Curran Jr’s announcement that he will not seek re-election removes from the American political scene one of the most rabid anti-Second Amendment, anti-self-defense public officials in the history of our country. Curran, among other things, issued a 63-page report titled “A Farewell To Arms: The Solution To Gun Violence In America.” But, Curran’s report was a “solution” to nothing. Instead, it was a brazen, blatant, ignorant, erroneous, brass-knuckled attack on the Second Amendment.

    On page 10 of his wretched report — verbally foaming at the mouth and seething with hatred toward private persons who own guns — Curran said that “owning and carrying handguns” must be stigmatized so that this Constitutionally-protected right is “seen as dangerous and aberrant behavior.” One definition of the word “aberrant” is, of course, mentally unbalanced. So, Curran was saying, not so subtly, that he looks forward to a time when people who own and carry handguns are seen as crazy, as nuts. On page 63 of his report, Curran said: “Our goal, then, must be to eliminate widespread handgun ownership through restrictive handgun licensing.”

    But, it is Curran’s views about guns which are nutty. In an interview in February of 2000, Curran told me how his daughter had been car-jacked in the early 1990s by a man with a handgun. He also spoke about how his father had been shot at in Baltimore’s City Hall and later died of a heart attack.

    When asked if there was any gun-control law which would have prevented these crimes?, Curran replied: “If there had been some — in other words, if the manufacturer, when they made these things, then have some understanding about how they would be distributed and what type of dealers they’re going to go to, what criteria dealers use — rather than just because these guns are made -I don’t think manufacturers can say, ‘Well, I made them and I gave them to a distributor and what they do thereafter is their business.’ I think that’s nonsense.”

    But, what’s nonsense is what Curran suggests. Seriously, how, exactly, would his proposal work in real life? — for example, in the two personal crimes he mentions. Before a gun manufacturer sells a gun to a dealer should the dealer be required by law to pledge that these guns will be sold to no carjackers?, that these guns will be sold to no one who will use them to shoot up Baltimore’s City Hall? Please.

    Sometimes satire just writes itself...

    Interestingly enough, this report does not include all the innocent people who were shot by PG county Police, or the dozens of incidents of PG County Police brutality that resulted in MILLIONS of dollars worth judgments against the county, HUGE wrongful death settlements, and an extended FBI probe into the department's litany of civil rights violations...

    And we won't even elaborate on the Baltimore Police's track record of brutality, abuse, and corruption, and the unending mounting cost of settlements against the BPD for their lawless treatment of the citizens of Baltimore...

    If Mr. Curran wants to make MD safer for the law-abiding citizens of his state, he might consider starting by taking the guns, pepper spray, and nightsticks away from the police, and leaving the good people of MD alone, free to exercise their Constitutionally-protected rights.

    Not "bashing" police--just reporting the news...

    "In his report, "A Farewell to Arms,” the Attorney General offered a solution to gun violence in America"

    The bold text tells you what they want. If people STILL refuse to think the MD government doesnt want to take your firearm rights away, you need to wake up!

    Yea, even though this is over 10 years old and Curran is no longer the AG this mentality lingers in Annapolis. It will take some time to turn this around but we are making progress ever so slowly but progress never the less.

    Not really surprising coming from a state that has this written right into their statutes:

    § 4-202. Legislative findings. The General Assembly finds that: (1) the number of violent crimes committed in the State has increased alarmingly in recent years; (2) a high percentage of violent crimes committed in the State involves the use of handguns; (3) the result is a substantial increase in the number of deaths and injuries largely traceable to the carrying of handguns in public places by criminals; (4) current law has not been effective in curbing the more frequent use of handguns in committing crime; and (5) additional regulations on the wearing, carrying, and transporting of handguns are necessary to preserve the peace and tranquility of the State and to protect the rights and liberties of the public. [An. Code 1957, art. 27, § 36B(a); 2002, ch. 26, § 2.]
    States dont have rights. People do.

    I met and spoke with Ganzler when he was running for his current office about four years ago (July 4th. 2006) and he claimed the days of the uber-gun-control mentality of Joe Curran were over if he was in office. However,his concept of uber-gun-control is way out of touch with the average Marylander and he need to learn a lesson about this big time if he is expecting to be re-elected.
