Maryland Sportsmen Block Effort to Erode Sportsmen's Rights- (04/14/2007)

Maryland sportsmen’s grassroots action put an end to a run of anti-trapping victories in the state.

Senate Bill 822, which would have banned leg hold traps and snares, died in the Senate Environmental Affairs Committee when the legislative session ended on April 9. Its companion, HB 1369, failed in the House Environmental Matters Committee. Sportsmen’s action sealed the fate of these dangerous proposals.

The Maryland Fur Trappers and Maryland Sportsmen’s Association helped mount a grassroots campaign against the threatening legislation. The USSA is proud of the sportsmen who demonstrated their opposition to the bills after receiving action alerts.

“Hats off to the organizations and the sportsmen who helped lead the fight to defend trappers’ rights,” said Rob Sexton, vice president for government affairs. “The defeat of these bills again proves that a network of active sportsmen can disrupt anti-hunters’ momentum and block efforts to outlaw hunting and trapping.”

Senate Bill 822 was sponsored by Sen. Gwendolyn Britt, D-Baltimore. The house bill was sponsored by Rep. Barbara Frush, D-Calverton.
