Baltimore County: NSSF Remains Strongly Opposed to Security Mandates

Today, the Baltimore County Council held a work session for Bill No. 72-19, known as the “Securing All Firearms Effectively Act,” or SAFE Act. NSSF’s Maryland consultant attended the hearing and communicated to the Council numerous flaws with the proposed legislation, while also highlighting NSSF’s joint initiative with ATF, Operation Secure Store®. Since the launch of Operation Secure Store, burglaries of FFLs and the number of firearms stolen has decreased drastically and the numbers show a continued downward trend.
As part of Operation Secure Store, NSSF’s retail security experts work together with firearms retailers to ensure their businesses are protected against burglaries. This is strictly a voluntary program offered by NSSF. 
NSSF will continue its work in opposition to the Bill No. 72-19, the SAFE Act, on behalf of its members and other FFLs in Baltimore County. The proposed language is unworkable and creates a costly and burdensome “one-size-fits-all” requirement. Additionally, we will continue to promote Operation Secure Store with the Baltimore County officials as well as retailers.
