OK, maybe I'm just a dumba$$, but can anyone explain to me how Maryland's failure to set forth a maximum sentence, for anything let alone a misdemeanor, compromises a person's rights? Furthermore a "crime" commited 32 years ago should not be considered anyway."Schrader's dilemma," explained SAF Executive Vice President Alan Gottlieb, "is that until recently, Maryland law did not set forth a maximum sentence for the crime of misdemeanor assault. Because of that, he is now being treated like a felon and his gun rights have been denied."
I was under the impression that back then, when men had a fight, they slugged it out and that was it. I didn't realize the nanny state was already seperating men, and sending them to "their rooms" for the night.
