I fear that something is going to happen like Mumbai real soon in Baltimore or DC. Why? Because law abiding citizens are not allowed to open carry, or CCW (unless you know someone or have been threatened with violence). Maryland and DC are "Free Killing Zones"!
Anyway, I just moved back to take a new position in Virginia, and Virginia it is for me! Open carry, CCW, and with the CCW, no wait for purchases. Not quite as good as Nevada, but close!
So, I too do not know how law abiding gun owners could live in Maryland.
