Today firearm owners from across the state testified in Annapolis regarding multiple gun control bills currently being considered by the state legislature.

This took a turn for the worst when the Maryland Democratic Party secretary, Robbie Leonard, threatened to "dox" those testifying today.

For those unaware, "doxing" is "the Internet-based practice of researching and broadcasting private or identifiable information about an individual or organization."

The rumblings I am getting from folks who are active or retired LEOs and military, is that they will not comply.
As much as there may be sympathy among certain local law enforcement folk (say the SA and Sheriff), the state wil force them to enforce any law that is passed to the fullest. Don't forget, the state holds the purse strings. That's how the state controls everything, the threat to withold the ability to spend. With out the legislature, local governments and school boards don't have the power to raise local taxes to compensate for the loss of state funds.

That would be rather stupid, as much as I don't like the law, if you are in jail, your chances of getting the law overturned by SCOTUS are far less likely to happen.
Fact is, there are very few people who wouldn't comply, grudginly. That's why they pass these bills. Doesn't mean the SA and Sheriff have to make it a priority. But there is the State Police and budgets have a way of being used to get politicians to do what they don't want to do.

U.S.A. -(Ammoland.com)- On 8 March, 2019, joint hearings were being held on SB1000, a bill that would effectively abolish the appeals process to the Maryland Handgun Permit Review Board (HPRB). The sponsors of SB1000 are all Democrats.

A former member of the HPRB wished to testify about claimed inaccuracies about the Board that was printed in a Baltimore Sun editorial. The joint committee only allowed one minute for comments. It was not enough for Shari Judah to finish her comments. She refused to give up the microphone when asked to do so. From mdshooters.com:

Today in the joint hearings in Annapolis, former Handgun Permit Review Board member Shari Judah of Montgomery County was EJECTED by the plainclothes Maryland State Police when she continued testifying past the punitive one-minute time limit set by the Democrats intent on ending the HPRB's civilian appointee oversight of the MSP Wear & Carry process.
Ms. Judah, who could be regarded as an EXPERT witness on the functioning and value of the HPRB, was rudely treated as if her insights were of NO VALUE to the joint committees attempting to railroad through the disbanding of the Board.

They have all complied since MD State Police starting doing Handgun background checks starting in 1969. Lots of anti gun legislation has passed in MD since then and not so much as a dry fart from Md's LE.
They will not comply is laughable.....
