Maryland Deputy AG Comments Refute ‘No One Wants to Take Your Guns’ Lie
Along with other ethical violation involving personal and professional conduct, Maryland Deputy Attorney General Thiruvendran Vignarajah demonstrated his clear contempt for his oath of office when the Sri Lankan immigrant expressed his view on the right to keep and bear arms to a female journalist working with documentarian James O’Keefe’s Project Veritas.
Per the recording, as presented by WBAL News Radio 1090:
Vignarajah, who is married, is apparently filmed in bars and hotel rooms with the representative, an unidentified woman posing as a law student. Over drinks, the woman asks him “off the record” about guns.
“My complete answer, off the record, is we should ban guns altogether, period,” he said. “If you want gun practice with a gun, you can go to the gun range and then you leave it there and you go home.”
He said, in his opinion, personal ownership of firearms should be limited to law enforcement and to individuals who pass licensing tests, pay a tax, have insurance and, as technology allows, have fingerprint trigger locks.

Per his spokesman, Maryland Attorney General Brian Frosh “told The Daily Caller the attorney general isn’t generally concerned about private views shared by employees in private conversations.’”
That figures – the man is a “progressive” oath breaker in his own right, and says anyone who believes in the right of the people to keep and bear arms is “absolutely nuts.”
Speaking of oath-breaking, here’s what the Maryland Constitution requires:
SEC. 9. Every person elected, or appointed, to any office of profit or trust, under this Constitution, or under the Laws, made pursuant thereto, shall, before he enters upon the duties of such office, take and subscribe the following oath, or affirmation: I, _______________, do swear, (or affirm, as the case may be,) that I will support the Constitution of the United States…
I don’t need to repeat here what the Constitution of the United States says about RKBA.
This is just one more example of how, when the antis ridicule gun owners for being paranoid with their “No one wants to take your guns” talking point, they’re lying. Of course they do.
It’s up to us to never let them.
