Veto Sunday Hunting on State Lands Bills SB 472/HB 0406 and SB 473/HB 0432.

    1. Petition by

      Maryland Ornithological Society

Help preserve access to public lands and preserve one day of peace per week. The Maryland Ornithological Society opposes expansion of Sunday Hunting. SB 472/HB 0406 would permit Sunday hunting on private and public land in Allegany, Garret, and Washington Counties.  This would eliminate access to those public lands for all other taxpayers for 7 days a week, and would eliminate the one day a week those on neighboring lands can enjoy peace and security.  SB 473/HB 0432 would expand deer hunting to Sunday in Allegany, Garret, Washington, and Frederick Counties, and could likewise deprive allothers of access to their public lands, and those on adjoining lands of peace and subject them to risk.

To:
Martin O'Malley, Governor of Maryland
Joseph P. Gill, Secretary of Department of Natural Resources
Richard Norling, Legislative Director, Department of Natural Resources
Senator George Edwards, Maryland Senator
Please Veto Sunday Hunting on State Lands Bills SB472/HB0406 and SB473/HB0432 and preserve one day a week for your nonhunting constituents to enjoy state lands.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      "Safe Sundays" is an important policy to bring back to Maryland for families and residents, the majority of whom do not hunt. Residents used to be protected but that protection is being eroded away. Make Sundays safe again for all Marylanders and their children and animals.

      These "public lands" should be available to all not a select few.

      Sunday is a time for Families to get out into nature without worrying about hunters shooting.

      Even though I have hunted in the past I see no reason to disrupt Sunday with shooting and unsafe conditions for people who enjoy the outdoors
