Do Maryland LEOs target handgun owners in traffic stops? (article)

I don't get this mentality:
Academics say [Governor-elect] Mr. Hogan is likely to stay far away from gun control issues as he begins his tenure as a rare Republican elected official in a mostly blue state...
Why doesn't he realize that the reason he was elected is because the people want such things to CHANGE?

Sorry ya lost me there. There is nothing in google about those with that spelling. Care to explain?
Those were the two victims of two separate incidents by just that one cop in this one article.

It is abundantly obvious this scum cop is conducting illegal searches based on flat out lies:
Article said:
“The officer who stopped Mr. Filippidis smelled the odor of marijuana in the vehicle on his initial approach of the vehicle,” Mr. Green said.
“If they smelled pot, why didn’t they arrest me for pot?” Mr. Filippidis said. “This whole thing just doesn’t add up. Smoking in front of my kids driving home from Christmas with the family? Come on. We walked away from the entire incident without even a ticket — for anything.”

As for Mr. Tonnesen, a search of his vehicle was justified after the same officer felt threatened and that Mr. Tonnesen was hiding something as both of his hands weren’t readily visible. He was also pulled over for speeding.
I felt threaten because the victim's hands weren't both readily visible so that justifies a search!!! GRRRR!!!
I hate Maryland so much and I have to go there frequently!

I'm in the same boat. I lived in Maryland for about 20 years and decided to leave because of the prior governor's assault on guns of
every type. I was a state licensed gun collector with many Class III guns. I've been fingerprinted and background checked every which way,
more times than I care to mention.

When I applied for a MD carry permit, I was interviewed and summarily rejected???
That sealed the deal for me, I may still have to work there.....but I live in West Virginia and proud of it!
