I know nothing of MD but, I'd like to maybe bring up a thought to consider. Here, in California there are very anti areas that probably, (or definitely) wont, and very pro areas where getting your license is very easy and these areas are designated by county. California is a "may issue" btw. So your luck may depend on where you are going to? I would look into the possibility of location dictating the odds of getting your license in that state there too and not just take someone's advice that is going to tell you that it's imposible. Good Luck!
