Councilman Hagen – How Dare You! Part II

Mr. Hagen was irritated by the fact Maryland doesn’t consider balloon releases “littering”.  The law only addresses objects on the ground, it is silent on objects in the sky.

HB 4 – LONG GUN REGISTRATION “BACK-GROUND CHECK” BILL Similar to the handgun board fight, the same last two weeks have been packed with fighting a dangerous registration bill of rifle and shotgun transfers requiring back-ground checks, which the Democrats have touted as their premier “gun control” legislative goal.

Executive Gardner Declares Recycling Non-Essential

Maybe you had a chance to hear County Executive Gardner on the radio say that homeowner recycling isn’t “essential”? Did you grab a cold beverage, suck it through a stainless-steal straw and ponder the revelation in her comment?
