Those who wish to testify are encouraged to preregister.
The Carroll County State Senate Delegation will hold a town hall meeting on Senate Bill 281 – Firearms Safety Act of 2013 (SB281) on Tuesday, Feb. 26 at 7 p.m.

On Feb. 6, the Maryland State Senate held a bill hearing in Annapolis on SB 281. Several thousand people attended the hearing and many were unable to testify due to time and space constraints.

The Carroll County House Delegation has been invited to participate.
Senate Bill 281 proposes new regulations on gun ownership in Maryland. Senators David Brinkley, Allan Kittleman and Joe Getty will provide opening comments and an update on the status of the bill in Annapolis. Attorney Mark Pennak will offer an analysis of Gov. Martin O’Malley’s bill.
The public is invited to offer testimony on the bill. Testimony will be limited to three minutes per person. If you wish to testify, pre-registration is encouraged. To pre-register, contact Amanda Miller, by email email@example.com or by telephone 410-841-3683.
