I can certainly agree with this, but we have seen the states defunding many things, among them, mental health care in all forms and levels.

"Mental health care" funding comes with zero accountability for those who administer it. Scattered about like so much chaff in the wind, it gets no positive results. Same thing over and over. But it's the same thing for most of our tax dollars, or even worse, deficit spending that has no taxation base.

It's a joke of an industry that was created on fed agenda grants It's not based facts, to identify needs, and it is certainly not based on successful outcomes. The best defenders are passionate and emotional grant writers, who're invested in fabricating next year's crisis.

I wish nothing but the best for those in need, and who're invested and see value in their outcome.

In looking for the text of the new law I’ve realized the implications are more complicated. This from a newspaper report. “If a background check takes longer than the three-day waiting period, purchasers would have to continue waiting to access their weapon until the check is complete.” For a local shop represented at a gun show, this might still be workable but I don’t know how a non-local seller would be able to make sales not knowing how long the background check might take.

It may be that the status of the majority of checks will be known almost immediately. One would think non local sellers would have thought up a plan, regardless of delay, maybe shipping it to the buyers FFL Good luck with it.

Lawrence, I grew up on the Eastern Shore and knew most of the changes listed. The list is long and depressing to me. I still own land there but will never live there again. I much prefer a “Shall Issue” state carry attitude to Maryland’s don’t even think about it.

Worse to me is Maryland use to have eight congressmen evenly split between both parties and last time I checked had one remaining Republican congressman which they were trying to get rid of by drawing up a new district map with almost no chance for his reelection. High tax, lots of government meddling, too many laws, regulations and permits for me. They tried to prevent me from cutting 60% of my timber a few years ago. Today I suspect they would be more successful. Great to own land which you can only pay taxes on. And don’t get me started on the DNR over reach, or their decision to introduce unwanted turkeys onto my land. I hate turkeys almost as much as most farmers hate deer. A pestilence.

Valid discussion here. As for myself, I grew up in Northern California (occupied Mexico). The "homeless" problem there is huge, yet liberal state and municipal governments respond with actions and policies that exacerbate the problem - by tolerating the encroachments of homeless encampments, feeding and caring for these people, even distributing free needles for injecting drugs. In Santa Cruz, CA beaches and other public areas, including state parks, are littered with discarded needles.

Everywhere I have seen "homelessness" it equates to drug addicted. The problem is not a lack of affordable homes, it is drug addiction.

I left my native state years ago and now live in Arizona. Never been sorry for even a minute.
