Larry Hogan on Gun Control

 

 


Ban bump stocks and other rapid-trigger devices

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan told a group of students from Great Mills High School, where a 16-year- old girl was killed earlier this year, that he would reject an election endorsement from the National Rifle Association if the organization offered one. He was endorsed by the NRA when he ran for governor in 2014.

Hogan signed numerous gun control measures after the March school shooting, including a "red flag" bill designed to keep guns out of the hands of people who are deemed a danger to themselves and others, and legislation that bans bump stocks and other rapid-trigger devices.

Increase age of unsupervised access from 16 to 18

Larry Hogan said would support toughening a law that holds parents responsible when their children gain access to their guns.

Students from Great Mills High School, where a 16-year- old girl was killed earlier this year, are planning a gun-violence awareness rally in Annapolis this weekend. Among their objectives, they want the Maryland legislature to toughen a state law that says a person may not store or leave a loaded firearm in a location where the person knows or should know that an unsupervised child younger than 16 can gain access to it. The students want the law to cover those younger than 18.

Maryland Gov. Larry Hogan, [in a visit to the school], told the students that he would support the age change.

Instant background checks tied to the federal system

"This is the most deceitful, most dishonest campaign that I have ever witnessed in my entire life," Hogan told reporters. He then called Brown a liar. "Each of Anthony Brown's campaign ads are completely false, and they are filled with absolute lies," Hogan said.

Brown's TV ads zero in on social issues. The Brown ad claims Hogan is against background checks for firearm purchases. It's in reference to his opposition to sweeping gun control laws passed last year that included increased scrutiny. Hogan supports instant background checks tied to the federal system.
