MD also has preemption over immigration laws, yet counties are bucking that, and there's little backlash. I think that's the point of the statement.

Here is a story on Carroll’s resolution. The short version is that the resolution states the County’s intention to not spend any County resources to enforce any aspects of the MFSA of 2013 which infringe on law abiding citizens’ right to keep and bear arms.

https://www.google.com/amp/s/patch.c...ndme53293b0b60

I attended the public hearing on this, when Jerry Barnes was States Attorney, and Ken Tregoning was Sheriff. Both spoke in support of the resolution. Neither is in office any longer (and Barnes is deceased). Commissioner Rothschild spearheaded the resolution. The audience was told by Mr. Barnes that this did not mean residents in Carroll could openly flaunt the law without consequences. What it did mean was that he as the prosecutor had discretion when deciding whether to prosecute trivial cases involving technical violations of MFSA against otherwise law-abiding citizens.

So far as I know, the resolution is still in effect. What is unknown is what practical effect it has had, i.e. whether it has prevented any actions from being taken against any firearm owners for violations of the MFSA which would likely have been prosecuted in other jurisdictions.

Maybe Commissioner Rothschild has insight into that question?

thanks for posting this! I didn't know about it, but thinking like this is why we just moved to Carroll.

Baltimore city has a lot of gun owners that are not prosecuted.

That's probably not what you meant.

Carroll and Harford already did this back in 2013.


-- Actually, I wouldn't be surprised if Frederick County didn't already pass the same legislation back in 2013 when all the other Cool Counties did.
IIRC, FredCo dd pass that at the county level, in the wake of FSA2013.
