A NEW TACTIC ON GUN CONTROL
By Karol Smith
Four times as many people were killed with a knife than with any kind of rifle in 2019, the FBI revealed in its Uniform Crime Report released late last month. According to the UCR, 1,476 victims were murdered with “knives or cutting instruments,” whereas 364 people were killed with rifles, including the vague category of “assault rifles.”
There are clear rulings concerning the constitutionality of gun ownership not connected to service in a militia. So, the Left is trying to make the argument that gun manufacturers committed consumer fraud through their speech – and therefore, that’s not protected under the First Amendment and a criminal offense that could open the way for lawsuits.
This isn’t a secret. It’s just not being reported. At the heart of the case, is the New Jersey Attorney General’s position that any opinion that a firearm can be used for self-defense is fraudulent. That’s what’s going to be argued. Oral arguments in Smith & Wesson v. Grewel begin today in district court.
Exxon Mobile is fighting a suit in the Second Circuit where the gas company is being sued on the basis that they violated the Consumer Protection Procedures Act as their product is contributing to global warming.

In the Middle Ages, people used no eating utensils. They used their fingers to pull food apart and get it to their mouth. Oh! That leaves hands and fingers as weapons………….!!

On May 15 Maryland lifted the statewide mask mandate, in addition to all capacity and distancing restrictions. This is what we have been waiting for and working toward. We finally do clearly see the light at the end of that tunnel.
It has now been over one year and two months since we first began taking unprecedented actions to bring our entire public health arsenal to bear against this invisible enemy. Together we summoned every once of our strength and every resource at our disposal to defeat this threat.
Our long, hard-fought battle against the worst global pandemic in more than a century is finally nearing an end. As we reflect on the hard work and the many sacrifices that it has taken to finally reach this point, I want to say thank you. You have shown the rest of the country what it means to be Maryland Strong.
Larry Hogan, Governor

As Republicans, we have to feel optimism, growth and progress, that is who we are. We struggle every day to make our voices heard, work to grow our businesses, protect our families and support or neighbors. We simply ask that our representatives don’t remove police protection from our schools, don’t put severe tax burdens on everyday people struggling to recover the strongest economy in decades, educate and not indoctrinate our children and don’t to turn religions, races and income levels against each other for what you perceive as political benefit. We are all Americans and we need to do better.

The Maryland General Assembly adjourned on Monday, April 12, 2021, enacting a number of laws which continue and expand on the voters’ preferences from this past Presidential election.
House Bill 745 increases the number of early voting sites throughout the State. Allocation of these sites was primarily based on population. In Montgomery County, the number of early voting sites will increase from 11 to 13, with an option for a 14th site.
The Republican Party of Montgomery County congratulates Representatives Young Kim and Michelle Steel on their historic election to the House of Representatives. Not only are they the first Korean American women elected to the House of Representatives, but they are part of a notable GOP resurgence in southern California. Their November wins marked the first time California Republicans had taken out an incumbent House member since 1994.
