Email from the MD State Police

I moved to MD last month and registered my banned rifles that I owned prior to 10/1/13 on the State Police web site. Got the below email back this morning.

"After researching the guns that you listed on your New Resident application it has been determined that the Bushmaster XM15-e2s; LMT Defender 2000 and Colt LE6920 Socom are banned in Maryland. In view of this information, we cannot register these guns under your name in Maryland unless you can provide us with documentation that you purchased these guns prior to 10/1/2013. If you cannot provide us with documentation than we must advise you that you cannot legally have this gun in Maryland unless you change it over to a heavy barrel."

Is this standard? I thought the onus was on them? I thought I didn't need to provide proof. I have receipts so no big deal. The date on one is hard to read though. You can make out the month and year but the day illegible. Hope I don't need to get that one re-barrelled. And why would I register something that wasn't banned.

Because they want to make life hard for you. It is what MSP LD does. Welcome to MD.

I thought they were also changing their advisement on the Colt LE6920 SOCOM rifles such that MD FFLs were listing them for sale in state again.

Are they saying the Bushmaster would be okay if you put a heavy barrel on it?

What D/A said. MSP is notorious for making up the rules as they go and not following the rule of law. Supposedly it's up to them to prove that you bought the firearm after 10/13, not for you to prove it age.

That is how I read it. Interesting. That is the rifle with the mostly legible date on the receipt. So if they don't accept my receipt and if the gun shop I bought it from can't help me out with other documentation I will go the heavy barrel route. I just wonder how I prove to them that I put a heavy barrel on it. Also if I put a heavy barrel on it and it becomes legal, does that mean I can never separate the upper and lower again? I.E. does it become banned again with the upper removed.

Got to love the law.... Welcome to MD got guns? We're going to arrest you if you don't sell them out of State.

Question for the gallery. If OP put "heavy barrels" on would he have to take to MSP or would they come by to make sure they are locked up correctly?

With the crime rate so low I would think they'd have plenty of time to come by and put calipers on the barrel to make sure they are heavy.

Welcome to MD.

You have the right to remain silent, anything you can can be used against you.

On the plus side, we allow actual violent offenders to roam free. A felony conviction wont stop you from getting your favorite gun.
