On my way to Maryland with a few questions

So I'm 20 years old and just recently purchased an ar-15 in Florida. As I will be moving to Maryland soon I joined to try to get a bit more of an understanding of the "horrible" gun laws of Maryland that I have heard so much about. Along with the rifle I also have quite a few 30 round magazines that I have collected from about June 2013 until now. Anything I should before I cross over the state line and immediately get thrown in jail?

The magazines are not a problem.

When did you buy the AR 15? Any chance it's an HBAR?

As of October 1, 2013 all AR15s except HBARs were banned outright in this rotten little misgoverned state. If you owned yours BEFORE that date, AND you are 21 years old, then you may bring it to Maryland, provided you register it with the State Police within 90 days.


But you can bring all the 30 round mags you want, as long as they're for your personal use.
No mags over 10 rounds may change ownership within the State. We all buy ours out of state.

Unfortunately it's not an hbar, which even if it was I wouldn't be allowed to have there since I am still under 21. At least I can carry around some magazines. I'll just throw them at people if I'm ever put in the position to defend myself. Another question I was going to ask was on my 21st bday I was planning on receiving my ccw and purchasing my first handgun. What would route would I take to make it so I have the least amount of headache as possible? Opposed to moving out of the state as I see a lot of people commenting haha.

You have no chance whatever of getting a CCW in Maryland. None.

Sorry.

Sell your AR and buy an HBAR. Only way to legally own an AR in MD.

Stay in Florida. You can't bring your ar and you won't get a MD ccw...

Would Maryland recognize an out of state ccw? I personally would like to stay in Florida however the army thinks otherwise.

I thought non h-bars were considered regulated even outside of this state... So you are 20 years old with a regulated AR?

Hbar isn't even a consideration in some other states. There may be no regulated rifles.

If someone could provide a reference to the "under 21 can't own an AR-15 in Maryland", I would appreciate it. I haven't seen this before. SB281 does say that anyone under the age of 21 cannot own a regulated firearm (which is a handgun).

Section 5-143 of SB281 states:

A PERSON WHO MOVES INTO THE STATE WITH THE INTENT OF BECOMING A RESIDENT SHALL REGISTER ALL REGULATED FIREARMS WITH THE SECRETARY WITHIN 30 90 DAYS AFTER ESTABLISHING RESIDENCY.

"Regulated firearm" in Maryland is a handgun, not an AR-15. Possession of an AR-15 is not illegal. The sale, rental or transfer an of AR-15 is banned.

Since you are military (I'm a SSG in the Guard), you're don't normally have the "intent of becoming a resident" since you're on PCS orders - assuming your active duty. If your HOR is Florida, then keep that as your home state.

As far as the "you'll never get a Handgun Permit (aka CCW) in Maryland" comment goes, that's not all together true. MSP has been lifting some of their restrictions lately and giving them for valid reasons (business owner, carrying of cash, etc.). It may all depend on your job in whatever branch you are. Plus, as soon as the DoD gets around to making changes to our CACs, if you're a CPL or higher, then you can lawfully carry under the Law Enforcement Officers Safety Act (LEOSA) with a whole lot of conditions, of course. That eliminates the whole permit problems.

Send me a PM if you have questions about your specific situation.
