At the end of February, Maryland held a public hearing on gun control legislation that would further criminalize the private transfer of certain firearms, new restrictions on commonly-owned semi-automatic firearms, and new licensing requirements to purchase a rifle or shotgun. The National Rifle Association (NRA) encouraged members to attend the hearings so their voices were heard. Second Amendment advocates wore shirts to the hearing saying, "We Will Not Comply."
Apparently Maryland Democratic Party Secretary Robbie Leonard didn't like pro-gun advocates' act of civil disobedience. He took to Facebook to say gun owners are "homegrown terrorists" who needed to be "doxed," according to WashCo Chronicle, a local news website.
Leonard commented on the post, saying he hopes the FBI would investigate every single person who wore a "We Will Not Comply" t-shirt because "they're a bunch of terrorists in the making."
The most ironic aspect of this whole ordeal is that Leonard is an attorney and even worked as an Assistant Public Defender, according to his bio on the Maryland Democratic Party's website.
As an attorney, Leonard should know that doxing, the act of sharing someone's personal information (like phone numbers, addresses, etc.) online, is illegal.
“Maryland Criminal Code section 3-803 prohibits an intentional, malicious course of conduct that constitutes harassment, as long as the actor has received a reasonable warning or request to stop by or on behalf of the subject," Fordham Law Review said. Maryland Criminal Code Section 3-805, explicitly outlaws this conduct when it takes place “through the use of electronic communication.”
Why is it that whenever anti-gunners don't get their way they resort to violence? Aren't Democrats supposed to be about "peace" and "tolerance?" Oh yeah. That's right. They're only tolerant of their own ideas and those who support them.
Gun control advocates can't debate the facts and statistics. They can't come up with logical appeals for why they want to disarm average Americans so they resort to threats.
Instances like these just reaffirm why gun owners are firm in their support of the Second Amendment. It's instances like these where people want to defend themselves and their families, should a threat arise.
