This is what I have understood for years and years, but I'm not finding where the Maryland Public Safety Code Title 5 gives that protection. I've read through the law multiple times over the years, and would like to be able to cite the title and subtitle that protects my legal possession of older weapons without registering currently regulated firearms.

Thanks
Something to keep in mind is that in general laws only cover what is illegal. If it is not illegal then it is legal. So you won't find a cite saying you are legally allowed to do something.

When someone moves here (post 2013), does it make any difference, in terms of whether a handgun has to be registered, if the gun is over 50 years old (C&R) ?

Congratulations ! As far as I recall, that's the first time for that exact question .

But I'm inclined to say it wouldn't matter in the context of establishing residency , but I'd love to be proved wrong .

That appears to be all NFA stuff. I saw that article as well. Itís perfectly legs to have an unregistered firearm in md, 80% pistol frames come to mind. Perfectly legal under MD state law and Fed law.
If the OP is taking about not registering when you move into the state, that should be listed in FSA2013

See 1) is a handgun

No further reading of the bulletin required. If itís not an antique or muzzleloading pistol, it must be registered. Doesnít matter if it is C&R or you have an FFL-03. Currently C&R handguns must be registered when transferred via the 77r when done within Maryland. You just arenít required to have an HQL when it happens. If the transfer occurs interstate MD isnít requiring you to register it if you have an FFL-03.

So if you move in to Maryland, you just register your whole C&R handgun collection. Once you are a MD resident you can buy as many C&R handguns out of state as you want and no registration.

Back to the OP, the way you worded it, if you transfer a regulated firearm without going through MSP or an FFL on a 77r (which results in it being registered), it is punishable by up to 5 years in prison. If you happen to own it by otherwise legal means, no registration required (an MG must be registered with MSP, but thatís different from a regulated firearm).
