Anyone here with a MD CCW and NOT a business owner or cop?

So, it seems a lot of people have MD carry permits. We all also know that MD is not friendly to self defense as a reason to carry. Is everyone here with a MD carry permit a business owner or in law enforcement in one capacity or another? If not, I'd be very curious to hear what justification you used to get approved and how hard was it for you?

Find a felon you can rent out to make documented threats against your life. Pay in cash.


There are probably a few who did not have to pay, but they are as rare as hens teeth.

It is a system that takes a fair amount of money to move around , I am a business owner with G & S . It is even hard to get a unrestricted without hours of dedication and money .

The permit system is price prohibitive for the poor as a whole and exposed to risk due to area of homes and crime stats .

If you can actually fulfill the requirements for G&S under personal protection, you can get a MD carry permit and it will be unrestricted.

My permit was/is issued explicitly for transporting high value/"dangerous" property. At one time the permit was valuable but the criminalization of restrictions has made it largely useless. I've renewed it three times. The third time they actually denied me a renewal but after a phone conversation they issued it. I renew it for the off occasion I need it and in case the restrictions regime is ever dispensed with.

As a victim of the data breach, disabled verified by ssdi (polio, post polio) wonder if there would be an argument for self protection due to disability. Might be a case to pursue. Just throwing it out there

I too am disabled, an honorably discharged veteran and have been the victim of the VA data breach. I am unable to run(can't even walk fast with my can), and too frail to fight(severe osteoporosis).

It seems to me a CCW is in order for all in my situation and denying such permits only creates ideal victims for the bad guys.

Anyone have any success in similar situations?

I only know of one member that fits your crytera, had a shotgun stuffed in his face with creditable follow up threats. Sad that you have to be a victim before your able to defend yourself.

From what I've read, the only data breach that may help you to get a W&C is the OPM data breach if you hold a high level clearance in a job that requires it and your supervisor will write a letter stating you are at risk. In other words, being a victim of the data breach won't help.
