Hand Gun Registration.

In this state, is it necessary to register hand guns? I bought a Glock in the mid 90ís when I lived out of state, moved back here in 99, never gave registering it a thought. Does it need to be registered? Do I need to fear the brown shirts at my door?

No, the only Glock handgun which must be registered is the full auto Glock 18.

Except for full auto, registration is voluntary in the state of Maryland even for handguns.

If the firearm has been obtained legally, you are not required to register the firearm; however, you can voluntarily register the firearm with the Maryland State Police.

The google is strong in that one.

They said "voluntarily register"......


Ok now that I’m using my google powers, I’m getting a little confused.

"I am moving here from out of state and own a firearm, am I required to register the firearm? (Note: If the firearm is an assault pistol it cannot be transported into Maryland)
If the firearm has been obtained legally, you are not required to register the firearm; however, you can voluntarily register the firearm with the Maryland State Police."
Then
"Am I required to register my shotguns and rifles?
No, provided they are not classified as assault weapons. "
According to the list:
AK-47 in all forms
Colt AR-15, CAR-15, and all imitations except Colt AR-15 Sporter H-BAR rifle
SKS with detachable magazine
Bushmaster semi-auto rifle

Are all assault Weapons and regulated, so then the weapons above will need to be registered, correct?

I had a Glock Model 7 with the Tactical Mall Ninja Kit, but I traded it in on this.

Ya, to add insult to injury it was built 30 years ago... you'd think someone would have offered me a newer gun when I had the tactical mall ninja edition... but no one would touch it for fear of prosecution.

The only firearms that have to be registered in MD are machineguns.

Any person outside of MD who currently owns any other firearm and moves into the state with the firearm does NOT have to register the firearm. (Note that "assault pistols", as defined in the law, cannot be registered; they are illegal to possess in MD.)
