Dona­dio talks Se­cond Amend­ment

Record Observer - - NEWS -

SAL­IS­BURY — Barry Dona­dio gave re­marks on the Se­cond Amend­ment on June 26 to Repub­li­can con­stituents in Sal­is­bury. The Wi­comico County Repub­li­can Club of Mary­land hosted his ap­pear­ance and dis­cus­sion at the Sal­is­bury Cham­ber of Com­merce lo­cated at 144 E. Main Street.

“Our Se­cond Amend­ment rights are an in­di­vid­ual right and not for only those serv­ing in the mil­i­tary,” Dona­dio said.

Dur­ing his talk, Dona­dio ex­pressed his be­lief that the Se­cond Amend­ment is a women’s rights is­sue. He said, “Ev­ery fe­male U.S. cit­i­zen over the age of 18 and with­out a se­ri­ous crim­i­nal his­tory should have the un­re­stricted right to carry a con­cealed hand­gun on their per­son for self de­fense.”

Dona­dio told con­stituents to never give up pro­tect­ing the rights of the Se­cond Amend­ment as it is an amend­ment that safe­guards our lib­er­ties. Dona­dio ad­vised the group to legally and safely ex­er­cise Se­cond Amend­ment rights as the U.S. Con­sti­tu­tion al­lows.

In at­ten­dance were Pres­i­dent of the Wi­comico County Repub­li­can Club Shawn Bradley, Mar yland State Del. Johnny Mautz, Wi­comico Repub­lic Cen­tral Com­mit­tee­woman Julie Brew­ing­ton, Mary­land State Sen. Ad­die Eckardt, Mary­land State Cir­cuit Court Judge Matthew A. Ma­cia­rello and the first fe­male Po­lice Chief of Sal­is­bury, Barbara Dun­can.

Dona­dio thanked the club for its hospi­tal­ity.

Dona­dio led an hon­or­able ca­reer in the vol­un­teer am­bu­lance ser vice, vol­un­teer fire depart­ment, the mil­i­tary, law en­force­ment and the United States Se­cret Ser vice. He was as­signed to the White House dur­ing the Bush and Obama ad­min­is­tra­tions. He also served in mul­ti­ple Mid­dle East­ern war zones dur­ing his ca­reer. In 2013, he au­thored the book, “TWA Flight 800 First Re­spon­der Wit­ness Ac­count.”

In 2014, he was elected to the Queen Anne’s County Repub­li­can Cen­tral Com­mit­tee in Mary­land. He cur­rently serves as Pres­i­dent of Pub­lic Se­cu­rity LLC. He is also a Mary­land State Po­lice cer­ti­fied pis­tol in­struc­tor. In Jan­uary 2017, Dona­dio was ap­pointed the sergeant-at-arms of the Mary­land Repub­li­can Party.

In a strong per­for­mance, Mor­gan Phillips fin­ished fourth be­hind a Chi­nese medal sweep in 3P Ri­fle at Ju­nior World Cham­pi­onships. Team USA (Phillips, Ginny Thrasher and Rachel Gar­ner) took bronze in the same cat­e­gory. Phillips is a for­mer Queen Anne’s County 4-H Marks­man­ship Club mem­ber and now shoots for the West Vir­ginia Univer­sity Ri­fle Team.
