Thread: New bill in maryland

  1. New bill in maryland

    I just received an e-mail from the VCDL (Virginia Civil Defense League) vcdl.org stating that a bill was introduced permitting citizens from Va., Pa., and Del. to conceal carry in Maryland. While I believe that this is a long shot of passing I am disappointed the WV a bordering state was not included.

  3. Well, it's certainly a step in the right direction. Why did you make your text super small though?

    It should be across the nation like a drivers license, it is what our
    founding fathers wanted as stated in our constitution. As well as
    "the union", shall have the right, illinois and Wisconsin violate our
    rights within the constitution and ammendments! I support a free
    nation, and by the looks of it we need to take it back!

    WOW, definitely didn't see that coming.
    Is there any other reference you can link to, bill # etc.? It would also seem to follow that there would be some sort of restructuring of the system for obtaining MD permits.

    Maryland introduced this bill? Really? I hope that bill also will change Maryland into a shall issue state as well, but I'm not going to get my hopes up.

    Well, after a little digging around I found the bill: MD HB 52

    Short, sweet and to the point at just over 3 pages long. The bill only refers to recognition of PA, DE, and VA permits, but does not change anything about the ability to obtain a MD permit (i.e. may issue to shall issue.)

    One other thing it seems to do is include a list of 45 various "assault weapons" as legitimate carry weapons. I find it hard to believe that that is what it actually does, but I can think of no other reason to include such language. Guess that is why I'm not a lawyer.

    BTW, I have found discussion on other forums (I stray from time to time ) stating that the omission of WV from the bill was an oversight, and that the bill's sponsor plans to add WV in an amendment.

    I have a hard time believing this bill stands a chance....given the fact even Maryland residents have a hard enough time getting CWP's. Now they're going to allow non-residents to CCW?

    I figure it won't make it.

    But should it happen it does not say anything about resident or non-resident. Pennsylvania is a very easy state to get a non-resident permit in if you have a permit in any other state, so then Maryland could be added to your list by combination. That would mean with my Florida permit and my Pennsylvania permit I could travel from Florida to Pennsylvania without having to disarm?!
