Moving to MD Need Advise

New member moving to the Annapolis area with an existing collection of firearms including AR, AK, M14 and FAL rifles. I'm at a loss with the current set of laws and having trouble finding advice how to proceed legally. First off...the move is a necessity and not an option. So before anyone says to stay in FL lets understand it's out of the question. And I know how to use a search engine, but most threads on the subject offer spotty/questionable advice and quickly take a turn. I've thought about asking the local law but reluctant to rely solely on this since anything offered may not be in my best interest.

So to begin with how does someone enter into MD with a trunk full of "evil" rifles? And supposing I arrive at my new home without being arrested what do I do next and how long do I have? Assuming I have to register everything how is it done and would it be better to put my collection into a "trust" before moving? Some of the rifles were purchased after your new laws took effect.

Thank you for your time and any constructive advice is appreciated.

Don't. Barring that, your rifles should be fine if they were purchased pre october 2013. Any post ban purchases would not be allowed into Ze Fatherland.

*edit*
my comments obviously apply only to the EVIL specifically banned baby liquifying, nun killing machines. there's a list on the MSP website. Also realize the term "copycat" is a tough one to nail down and has lead to a lot of confusion.

Within 90 days after establishing residency. And as noted, you must have owned the rifles before 10/1/2013.

Would say "Don't!" but I gather there's already a commitment to move. So then I would advise you to start looking for the next job in another state!

We can always use more like minded folks in this state, lord know, all everyone else here knows how to talk to potential new folks is "don't" or "live in another state and commute", and don't even get me started on the "I'm moving" group.

With the above out of the way, transport them per FOPA, firearms stored separate from the ammo. Once you get settled, you have 90 days from establishing residency (Driver's license counts) to register all handguns, and any "banned" long guns, their copies or long guns that can be considered a copycat long gun (any two of a flash hider, folding stock, flare/grenade launcher).

One time fee of $15 to register all of them.

Agree with the advice here. I have just completed my move into the area from Texas and registered what I needed to. Fortunately I have nothing acquired prior to the new laws. You will need to look closely at the laws with regards to what you need to register (for me handguns, stripped lowers and Ar15's). No need to register weapons not on the ban/copy cat lists. Good luck with the move.

Since it's too late to stop your move to Merry Land, let me say this...

"You'll be sorry"..!
