    County Commissioner Richard Rothschild stands strong for the 2nd Amendment and is not afraid to say NO. Amen!! We need some more strong American Republican members like that.

They are protected by MTR, and we have there back!                             

                             RESOLUTION No. _884-2013
WHEREAS, the Board of County Commissioners of Carroll County, Maryland, a body
corporate and politic of the State of Maryland (“the Board”), is authorized to adopt, and from time to
time amend, revise, rescind or change provisions of resolutions; and
WHEREAS, it is the desire of the Board to declare its support of the Second Amendment to the
United States Constitution and the Maryland Constitution protecting citizens’ inalienable and individual
right to keep and bear arms, as follows:
Preamble v1.1
We, the People of the State of Maryland, grateful to Almighty God
for our civil and religious liberty… (Maryland Constitution)
We, the undersigned, in order to preserve the blessings of liberty to ourselves
and our posterity, recognize that it is our duty to be ever mindful that our civil
government exercises its just and lawful authority subject to the moral law of Almighty
God and that all powers granted to civil government are derived through the people and
are for the sole purpose of protecting and defending the unalienable natural rights which
have been given the people by God, and affirmed by our Constitution, as part of His
Created Order;
And further recognizing that it is the natural tendency of civil government to
expand beyond the limits of its rightful charter and to usurp authority and power which
have not been authorized to it by God nor delegated to it by the consent of the governed,
therefore, it is the duty of the people, through the agency of the lesser magistrate (local
elected officials and Sheriffs), to challenge the civil government when and where it
exceeds its authority and to remind overstepping officials thereof from whence their just
powers devolve and the limits to which they may extend;
And further recognizing that we, as elected officials, bound by sworn oath to
uphold and defend the Constitution of these States-united, and the State of Maryland
which constrain and limit the authority of the civil government;
And whereas Article 2 of the Maryland Declaration of Rights affirms that,
The Constitution of the United States, and the Laws made, or which shall be
made, in pursuance thereof, and all Treaties made, or which shall be made, under the
authority of the United States, are, and shall be the Supreme Law of the State; and the
Judges of this State, and all the People of this State, are, and shall be bound thereby;
anything in the Constitution or Law of this State to the contrary notwithstanding.
And whereas Article 6 of the Maryland Declaration of Rights affirms,
That all persons invested with the Legislative or Executive powers of
Government are the Trustees of the Public, and, as such, accountable for their conduct:
Wherefore, whenever the ends of Government are perverted, and public liberty
manifestly endangered, and all other means of redress are ineffectual, the People may,
and of right ought, to reform the old, or establish a new Government; the doctrine of
Second Amendment Preservation – 2013
non-resistance against arbitrary power and oppression is absurd, slavish and destructive
of the good and happiness of mankind.
And whereas, John Adams wrote, “[You have Rights] antecedent to all earthly
governments: Rights that cannot be repealed or restrained by human laws; Rights,
derived from the Great Legislator of the universe.”
And whereas, Thomas Jefferson affirmed, “whenever our affairs go obviously
wrong, the good sense of the people will interpose and set them to rights.” And he
further declared, “what country can preserve its liberties if its rulers are not warned
from time to time that their people preserve the spirit of resistance?”
Whereas Alexander Hamilton in Federalist Paper #78- asserts, “…No legislative
act, therefore, contrary to the Constitution, can be valid. To deny this, would be to
affirm, that the deputy is greater than his principal; that the servant is above his master;
that the representatives of the people are superior to the people themselves; that men
acting by virtue of powers, may do not only what their powers do not authorize, but
what they forbid.”
Whereas Tench Coxe, noted federalist and friend of James Madison, in defense
of the proposed Constitution, in the Pennsylvania Gazette, Feb. 20, 1788 wrote, “Their
swords, and every other terrible instrument of the soldier, are the birth right of an
American… the unlimited power of the sword is not in the hands of either the federal or
the state governments, but, where I trust in God it will ever remain, in the hands of the
Now, by the authority granted us by the people of Carroll County, Maryland to stand and
defend their God-given rights and liberties, which are guaranteed by the United States and Maryland
Constitutions, we hereby declare this Resolution as follows:
Second Amendment Preservation Resolution V1.3d
Designating Carroll a Second Amendment “Sanctuary County”
WHEREAS, the Second Amendment to the United States Constitution protects the inalienable
and individual right of the people to keep and bear arms; and
WHEREAS, the Second Amendment was adopted in 1791 as part of the United States Bill of

WHEREAS, the Supreme Court in the District of Columbia v. Heller decision affirmed the
right to keep and bear arms is unconnected to any service in a militia;

WHEREAS, the Supreme Court, in United States v. Miller opined that firearms that are part of
ordinary military equipment, or with use that could contribute to the common defense are protected
by the Second Amendment;

Second Amendment Preservation – 2013
WHEREAS, the Maryland General Assembly has enacted the “Maryland Firearms Safety Act of
2013” (MFSA) which bans the sale of forty-five types of ordinary rifles and magazines that could
contribute to the common defense; and requires law abiding citizens to submit to licensing fees,
background checks, fingerprinting, safety training and renewal fees;

WHEREAS, the Board reasonably believes that the MFSA violates the Second Amendment to
the United States Constitution that clearly states, “…the right of the People to keep and bear arms,
shall not be infringed,”

WHEREAS, the Board proclaims its opposition to the MFSA; and

WHEREAS, the Board took an oath to support and defend the United States Constitution,

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT HEREBY RESOLVED to protect our citizens’ constitutional

the citizens of Carroll County, herein direct that Carroll County Government will not authorize or
appropriate government funds, resources, employees, agencies, contractors, buildings, detention centers

e) Restrictions prohibiting the possession, carry or transport of lawfully acquired
firearms or ammunition by law abiding adult citizens or minors supervised by adults.

How to change your A-2 Dual Purpose (Carry) holster from IWB to OWB?

 Front IWB View                                    Front View OWB View                                            Back View   

This holster gives you the best of both worlds by offering an inside the waistband (IWB) holster that converts to outside the waistband (OWB) by easily taking off our USA powder coated holster clips. When removed they reveal our molded belts slots for our famous close riding pancake. This holster has become one of our top sellers due to the versatility of having both IWB and OWB capabilities. It’s best to leave the hardware on, once the clips are off. This will help cover the stud that’s embedded into the leather and also prevent you from losing the hardware.

All of our A-2 holster has a custom combat cut for each weapon, this will aid in a faster draw of the weapon. You will also notice that we use heavy duty nylon industrial strength thread to endure great stress on the holster for long term. Don’t forget to checkout our professional slick edges. We use two pieces of leather to construct the holster’s foundation. With our profession slicking technique we conform the two edges into one single slick edge.

Each A-2 is molded specifically to each weapon of choice to sustain a great glove fit retention and detail in the holster. We only use the finest bull hide and hardware on this holster to ensure the longevity and durable wear for years to come. We reinforce the mouth for easy one handed re-holstering and to prevent collapsing while carrying IWB.

This holster by far is a great wearing holster both OWB and IWB. The A-2 is tuckable, so you can tuck your shirt behind the metal clips. The holster clips/belt slots can fit up to 1-1/2 gun belt(2 layer) or 1-3/4 regular belt (1 layer). If you do a loose tuck than the shirt can come back over the metal clips to conceal them.

You can also upgrade to the NEW UltiClips3 to give you better concealment of the clips. Adding the ulticlips will give you the adjustability to position your clips for the perfect draw. Whether it be ride height or adjusting the cant of the holster. With the ulticlips you do not have to wear a belt. You can easily clamp the clips straight onto the pants or any material. Keep in mind if you are going to wear a belt, it will aid in better retention of the holster. Make sure it’s a good stiff heavy gun belt like our GB-1 gun belt.

SHOT Show 2018: News, Rumors, New Guns and More

All kinds of new revolvers and pistols are rolled out at the SHOT Show. This year promises to have some significant introductions from companies like Smith & Wesson, Ruger and Glock.

The following are the new guns confirmed to be announced/shown at the expo:

Remington RP45

Remington RP45

Remington’s polymer RP9 seemed to be received with apathy by the shooting public. Pre-Christmas bargains on these guns were ridiculously cheap leading some to believe dealers were just trying to clear their inventory of them. However, the demise of the pistol line may be exaggerated as the company is finally releasing the RP45. This pistol was developed in parallel to the RP9 but has not shipped yet. Remington will have it at the SHOT Show. The image above is from the company’s new catalog.

SIG P365


SIG SAUER announced the P365, a striker-fired pistol the company calls a “high-capacity micro-compact” handgun in 9mm. In some measurements – width, length and unloaded weight – the gun is a bit smaller than both the Glock 43and Smith & Wesson Shield. Yet, the gun can hold 10+1 rounds in a flush-fitting, double-stack magazine. An extended magazine add two more rounds. The MSRP is $599. I look forward to handling one of these and seeing how it shoots.

Glock 19X

new Glock at SHOT Show

Glock announced the model 19X – a gun that mates a G17 frame with a G19 slide and barrel. Essentially, you wind up with the decreased sight radius and bullet velocity of the compact gun with the increased difficulty of concealment from the full size frame. But, it does come in the chic coyote color. Plus 2 magazine extensions ship with the gun, so you do get 19+1 rounds of 9mm on tap with a fully loaded pistol.

FN 15 Pistols

FN 15 Pistol

FN America is introducing a new series of FN 15 pistols at the show. Chambered in 5.56 NATO or 300 BLK, these handguns are variants of the company’s FN 15 rifles. Additional information can be found on the guns at my FN 15 Pistol article.

Ruger Security-9

Ruger Security-9

The Security-9 is a full-size 9mm pistol designed to be very affordable. It uses 15 round magazines that are compatible with the Ruger SR9line of handguns. It is a hammer fired with a Secure Action trigger system similar to that of the LCP II. I found the LCP II pull to be very light and crisp, so this $379 (MSRP) pistol may have a very nice trigger indeed.

Ruger EC9s

New Ruger EC9s pistol

Announced prior to the show, the new Ruger EC9sis a more affordable variant of the LC9s pistol. The suggested retail is less than $300 on this one.

Springfield Armory Operator 10mm

Springfield Armory Operator 10mm Pistol

Springfield Armory has a pair of 10mm pistols to show off this year. Both are the company’s TRP Operator 1911-style pistols. One has a 5″ barrel, and the other has a 6″ tube. Both feed from 8-round magazines.

FMK Elite Pro

FMK Elite Pro

This new 9mm will be on display in January. It has a threaded barrel and a slide cut for the direct addition of a red dot optic. The Trijicon RMR, Vortex Viper and Vortex Venom mount directly without the need for an adaptor plate. The gun has a new grip texture, beveled magazine well and a redesigned slide stop. The suggested retail price will be $679.95.

Timberwolf Large Frame

Lone Wolf Distributors large frame Timberwolf

Lone Wolf Distributors will show a new Glock compatible frame at the show. The new frame is compatible with the 10mm and .45 ACP pistols. It includes:

  • ability to work with Gen3 and Gen4 slides
  • higher grip angle than the OEM Glock
  • two different grip lengths
  • two sizes of swappable backstraps
  • accessory rail
  • various grip texture options

CZ Scorpion EVO 3 S1 with Folding Brace

CZ-USA Scorpion with folding brace

CZ-USA will have its new Scorpion EVO 3 S1with a folding brace on hand. The pistol offers a factory arm brace option that many people have been wanting. The 9mm pistol has a flash can muzzle device that can be removed to add a suppressor. This pistol carries a suggested retail price of $999.

CZ P-10C in Urban Gray with Threaded Barrel

CZ P-10C Urban Gray

This is not earth shaking, but the new Urban Gray color does offer shooters an option when buying the P-10C with a threaded barrel. The MSRP is $559.

Kimber 1911 Style Pistols

It should not be a surprise to many Kimber fans, the company is rolling out a lot of new 1911-style pistols in 2018. The company recently announced what some of the new guns are that will be on display at the SHOT Show. These will include:

  • five new Aegis Elite pistolsincluding several that have red dot style optics
  • five new KHX pistolsincluding several that are “optics ready” for adding a red dot sight
  • Stainless Target Long Slidein 10mm and .45 ACP (6″ barrel $1,055-$1,075)

Kimber Hero

Kimber Hero Custom 1911

Kimber Mfg is working with the Boot Campaign to offer this pistol in 2018. The 1911-style pistol is a Kimber Custom with custom engraving, a matte black slide and parts, FDE frame and Kryptek Highlander grip panels. It will be chambered in .45 ACP. The suggested retail price of this gun will be $987.

Additional Kimber K6S Revolvers

Kimber K6S 3 Inch

Kimber will show three new K6S revolversat the show. These will be the CDP, the DC and the Stainless 3″. While the first two are very attractive, the new Stainless model with the 3″ barrel is the most interesting to me. An extra inch of barrel length can give the .357 Magnum (and .38 Special) significant velocity gains while also lengthening the sight radius. This could make for a great CCW gun.

New Rifles & Shotguns – Confirmed

Long guns of all types are shown off at the annual exposition. While the AR platform has taken center stage the last several years, there will be many new guns offered at this year’s show that take the market in both new and traditional directions.

The following are the new rifles and shotguns that are confirmed to be announced/shown at the event:

Ruger PC Carbine

Ruger PC Carbine

A lot of people wanted Ruger to bring the PC9, and those wishes have now come true. The new PC Carbine is a 9mm carbine in a traditional rifle form. Unlike the original PC9, the PC Carbine has a few new twists – like the takedown ability and swapable magazine wells. The takedown feature if obvious is a nice addition, but the magazine well interchangeability surprised me. With the change of a magwell, the gun can change what kind of magazine it feeds from. As it ships, it will come with two wells – one for the SR9/Security-9 magazine and another for the Glock pattern magazine. While I’m not a fan of this gun’s looks, I am a fan of everything else about it. I hope it lives up to expectations.

JARD California Compliant PCC

JARD J68 CA Compliant PCC

JARD announced it was introducing a California compliant version of the J68 pistol caliber carbine. This gun lacks features like a standard pistol grip to meet the laws of that state. It is a bullpup design and feeds from Glock pattern magazines like the original J68.

FN 15 Tactical Carbine FDE P-LOK

FN 15 FDE rifle

This rifle is an extension of the company’s growing line of commercial AR-style rifles. This model has a chrome lined barrel, three prong flash hider, mid-length gas system and is finished in flat dark earth. The handguard uses the M-LOK standard for attaching accessories.

Phoenix Weaponry .45-70 Auto

Phoenix Weaponry 45-70 rifle

Phoenix Weaponry has an AR-10 type rifle that is set up to run a .45-70 cartridge. The .45-70 Auto is essentially a rebated rim version of the classic .45-70 Govt cartridge that will run on a .308 Win bolt. The company claims the rounds hit sub-MOA through this gun. The .45-70 Govt has always been a great hunting cartridge, and a modern adaptation of the gun could be a huge hit.

AlphaWolf Pistol Caliber Carbine

AlphaWolf Pistol Caliber Carbine

Lone Wolf Distributors has a new piston driven carbine it will show in January. Called the AlphaWolf Pistol Caliber Carbine, it is a Glock magazine fed gun that can be had in either 9mm or .45 ACP. Read more about it here.

Springfield Armory M1A in 6.5 Creedmoor

Springfield Armory M1A

6.5 Creedmoor is the current darling of the shooting community. So, I expect to see a lot of rifles chambered for it at the show this year. One of the big pre-show announcements is that Springfield Armory is now offering its M1A line in this caliber. There will be different versions available including one with the standard composite stock and one with a precision adjustable stock in flat dark earth. SA describes these as “true 1,000 yard rifles.” Pricing runs from $1,985 – $2,045.

Gorilla Firearms GF-10

Gorilla Firearms GF-10

The new GF-10 is a lightweight, AR-10 style rifle that is being built by Gorilla Firearms. Gorilla Firearms is a new sister company of PCP Ammunitionand Gorilla Ammunition. Although the gun will be chambered in typical calibers like the .308 Win, .260 Rem, .243 Win, 6mm Creedmoor and 6.5 Creedmoor, it will also be offered in the new 6.5 SOCOM cartridge. Details are few on this gun, but I’ll have more on it as they become available.

Mauser-15 Rifle

Mauser-15 Rifle

Blue Line Solutions announced it would show the Mauser-15 rifle at the SHOT Show. This rifle is a rimfire gun chambered for the .22 LR cartridge. It is a semi-automatic design with an adjustable (three position) stock and 16.5″ barrel. Folding sights are included with the gun. It will be offered in a tan version (shown) and a black version. The company has not released an MSRP yet.

Impeccable feel, weight and balance launch the XD-E™ from invisible to impactful in an instant, for go-anywhere confidence unlike any you’ve felt.

New shooter or skilled gunner, wrap your mitt around the new XD-E™ and you’ll know. This is more than a hammer. It redefines what your hammer should be.
