    Maryland Gun Owners

    My brother is contemplating moving to Maryland. He has some rifles, pistols, and shotguns but I don't think he's interested in concealed carry. My question is in regards to legal possesion of firearms. Can he posses them, does he need to be licensed to have them?

    I am originally from MD, having moved to TX 3 years ago.

    MD is pretty strict when it comes to their firearm laws. Not only strict, but they are ever changing.

    I would suggest he contact a local attorney who would be willing to speak to him gratis.

    CC is next to impossible there. They brag they are a shall issue state, but the requirements are so strict and subjective, virtually nobody is allowed to carry.

    That's what I'm getting from handgunlaw.us, about the CC issue. I'm more worried about ownership, possession, restrictions, and registration. I'll give him your suggestion, thanks.

    Oddly if he owns the weapons and brings them when he moves the are very few restrictions, and they need not be registered as in some other States.

    Maryland has some strange weapons laws with some stranger loopholes.

    That's so true! 30rnd mags, you cannot buy, sell, trade within State lines, but you can go to VA or PA and get them and bring them back! Handguns and assault weapons (I hate that word), are considered the same, to buy, sell, trade or gift, you have to go through a FFL or the State police, and wait 8 days. Unless it's an AR that the receiver says "Target" or "Match" or has a "bull barrel".

    Least that is the way it was a few years ago.

    Yup! Those were a couple that I was thinking of... And just to point out one opposite... A National Match M1A has the wait (of course an M1 doesn't)!

    Real 'assault weapons' are automatic. The AR-15s most of us have are 'sporting rifles'. ;)

    You're right about the 'Target' 'Match' and 'Heavy Barrel' markings though.

    Now, let's don't go confusing a clip and a mag, regardless of capacity.

    I'm just one root in a grassroots organization. No one should assume that I speak for the VCDL.

    I am neither an attorney-at-law nor I do play one on television or on the internet. No one should assumes my opinion is legal advice.

    That's why I said this:

    assault weapons (I hate that word)
    In Mary-Land that is what "they" call them, not me!!!
