Leaning against and on is going to be splitting hairs you are likely to lose.

If I saw something leaning against something I’d say it is on it. I think most other people would also. Judge is almost certainly going to

No idea on what MD considers a motor vehicle or not.

Operate a riding lawnmower, ATV or other motorized vehicle on a roadway while under the influence and you'll find out....

I've seen/heard of SEVERAL DUIs that had nothing at all to do with a registered/road legal vehicle.

Of course. The statute says driving a vehicle. It doesn’t say motor vehicle, on road, etc.

So if you are drunk and operating anything with a motor that propels itself, DUI is possible. Could be drunk on your lawn mower cutting your grass.

That said, the open alcohol container law specifically says it only applies possessing an open alcohol container in a passenger area of a motor vehicle, ON A HIGHWAY. I assume that broadly means any public road.

It doesn’t apply to the occupant of a vehicle that is primarily used for transportation of a person for compensation. Also doesn’t apply to the living quarters of an RV.

So rock out with your beer while you mow your lawn or ride around in your tractor or ATV. Just stay off public roads and don’t actually get drunk (because it sure looks like you could be charged with a dui)

In the more rabidly Progressive areas of the state, I suspect being seen with a firearm on one's own property would bring an armed response and possibly a charge of disturbing the peace, or frightening a snowflake.

Such a scenario would be a preliminary setup for a Red Flag complaint.

I trust no one in this state, except those who have earned my trust.

When I was a kid, my dad told us to take the guns out to the driveway with a card table and some newspaper to clean up after shooting. There we'd be, a couple of kids handling firearms in the driveway and waving at the neighbors. Can you even imagine that in MoCo now? They'd be waving that red flag like a signal at the Daytona 500.
