Maryland Anti-Trapping Bill Withdrawn
« on: March 15, 2004, 06:37:02 AM »
Following the recent defeat of a Maryland house bill that would have banned trapping, an identical bill has been withdrawn from the Senate.

Senate Bill 279, a bill that would have prohibited the use, setting, placing, or maintenance of leghold traps in Maryland , was withdrawn on March 5 by its sponsor, Sen. Sharon Grosfeld, D-Montgomery.  An identical bill in the House of Delegates, House Bill 498, was defeated March 3 in the House Committee on Environmental Matters, 14-7.

The House vote in sportsmenís favor and the subsequent withdrawal of the senate bill are testaments to the work of the Maryland Sportsmenís Association, the Maryland Fur Trappers, Inc. and other Maryland sportsmen. They took action to educate their legislators about the importance of wildlife conservation and trapping as a management tool.

In all seriousness, the Marlin is a great rifle, too. I own a Model 60, one of the best rifles ever made.
Brownings are nice, but in terms of quality AND accuarcy AND ruggedness, it's hard to beat the Marlin.
California sucks that's it.
