Question Maryland local firearms laws that existed before 1/1/1985

After reading the AG's response to the questions we put forth for long gun carry. The AG's office mentioned any firearms laws that were enacted before 1/1/1985 are not preempted by State law.

What laws/ordinances by local governments exist today, that were enacted before 1/1/1985?

"§ 260-4 Firearms.
[Added by Bill No. 85-38]A. Within this section, a "firearm" shall mean any pistol, revolver, rifle or shotgun designed to propel any projectile or projectiles by means of explosive energy.
B. It shall be unlawful for any person to fire or discharge any firearm:

(1) On the property of another without written permission of the property owner or tenant and having the written permission in immediate possession.
(2) In the direction of any residential dwelling or building designed and used for human occupancy or school wherein the person firing or discharging the firearm knows or should have known that the projectile or projectiles have a reasonable chance of striking the structure.
(3) On public property without first obtaining written permission from the appropriate agency or a permit from the agency if required and having the written permission or permit in immediate possession.
(4) Wherein the projectile or projectiles traverse the property of another so as to endanger life, limb or property.
(5) Within one hundred fifty (150) yards of any residential dwelling or building designed and used for human occupancy or school, located on adjacent or abutting property, without written permission from the property owner or tenant and having the written permission in immediate possession.
C. Nothing in this section shall be held to apply to or prohibit the firing or discharge of any firearms on a bona fide shooting range or if the same is reasonably necessary for the defense of life or property or to any law enforcement officer in the performance of official duty."


Bill number starting with 85 may mean it was added to law in 1985, or the 1978 was ammended in 1985. That last part sounds alot like texas style castle doctrine though.



This is from 1978:
193-5
Shooting foxes pursued by hounds.
Any person who shall shoot, kill or wound any fox which is being pursued by hounds within the limit of the county shall be deemed guilty of a misdemeanor and, upon conviction thereof, shall pay a fine of one hundred dollars ($100.) for every such offense.

That's the point of this thread...

If MDS members can research their local laws, and post them here, then everyone can sift through and find what is pertinent.

Seems the only restrictions to firearms in Charles County pertains are for air guns (Ch.51) or getting written permission for hunting (Ch. 72).

Note: I can find no handy reference for the date of this legislation, however, being that it regulates "ammunition" and not "firearms" it is likely not preempted. Additionally, while this would seem to only impact minors (and thus be mostly superfluous, given state laws on the matter) section 14-109 means that ammo sales in the city will be logged with your photo ID.

TITLE 14 [of the Health code]
AMMUNITION SALES TO MINORS
§ 14-101. Definitions.
(a) In general.
In this title, the following terms have the meanings indicated.
(b) Ammunition.
“Ammunition” means any cartridge, shell, or other device that contains explosive or incendiary
material and is designed or intended for use in any firearm.
(c) Firearm.
“Firearm” means any pistol, revolver, rifle, shotgun, short-barreled rifle, short-barreled shotgun,
or other firearm.
(d) Minor.
“Minor” means any person under the age of 18.
(Ord. 02-452.)
§ 14-102. {Reserved}
§ 14-103. Sale, etc., to minors prohibited.
No person may sell, give, or otherwise transfer, or attempt to sell, give, or otherwise transfer any
ammunition to a minor.
(Ord. 02-452.)
§ 14-104. Purchase, etc., by minors prohibited.
No minor may:
(1) purchase or attempt to purchase any ammunition; or
(2) possess any ammunition in any public place.
(Ord. 02-452.)
§ 14-105. Photo ID required.
No person may sell, give, or otherwise transfer or attempt to sell, give, or otherwise transfer any
ammunition to any individual without first verifying, by means of photographic identification that
contains the individual’s date of birth, that the individual is not a minor.
(Ord. 02-452.)
