Gov. Hogan Signs One Of The Most Comprehensive Gun Violence Bills Into Law


Gun Violence Bills Signed into Law

Sponsored content – Gov. Hogan signed a host of bills into law in April that change the way guns and ammunition are governed in the state. The package of bills is one of the most comprehensive to be signed into law of any state in the country.

Part of the legislation includes a ban in the state on bump stocks and any other device that permits semi-automatic fire. Another bill in the package increases the ability of law enforcement officers to confiscate guns from people who have been labeled as an extreme risk. This is now known as the “red flag” law.

States across the country have expressed support for this type of legislation but Maryland becomes one of the first states in the country to act on it following the shootings in Las Vegas and in Parkland, Florida.

Maryland Legislator Introduces Bill Changing Criminality of Adultery

In some states, proof of adultery can result in certain monetary benefits in division of the marital estate, and can, in some states, be grounds for a lawsuit against the non-spouse adulterer.

Termination of Parental Rights of Rapists Law Has Passed the Maryland House and Senate


Termination of Parental Rights of Rapists Law Has Passed in Maryland

Sponsored Post – Victims of rape in Maryland will soon have the opportunity to have the parental rights of their assailant terminated upon presentation to the court of clear and convincing evidence that rape occurred.

The law, which has been debated in the Maryland House since 2007 as legislators tried to come up with a fair way to terminate parental rights in the absence of a rape conviction, has now passed the Maryland House and Senate. The law will allow a court to terminate the parental rights of an assailant at a lower standard of proof than is used for criminal convictions. This lowered standard was one of the primary sticking points.
