Possibly moving to Maryland this summer

So I currently live in Northern VA and for me the gun laws are great especially coming from Massachusetts in the Boston area. So I’m not a stranger to tight laws but I have been told Maryland is much worse than my hometown of Boston. I would love to stay in Northern VA but my wife works in laurel and is tired of the commute. Will I really have that much trouble getting a carry permit and I have an AR15 and two pistols VP9 and PPS M2 I’m assuming the pistols are fine but my AR not ? I conceal carry for work so being denied would be shitty

The AR is a maybe. If it's an HBAR you can bring it and you don't have to register it.

If it's in a banned configuration, if you owned it prior to Oct 2013 you can bring it but you have to register it. If you got it after Oct 2013 you can't bring it.

If it is in a banned configuration, an easy solution is to change the upper to an HBAR upper then just bring it.

You'll have to register the handguns when you establish residency.

And yes you can pretty much forget getting a carry permit. If you have some special circumstances and are willing to fight for it you might eventually get one. They go exist but very hard to get.

I would try to explain all the major differences between living in Marylinistan and living in Virginia to my wife. Start with the infringements on your rights, taxes, sanctuary county’s, etc. requirement for a HQL unless exempt. Does she shoot at all? Get her interested if not. Explain that in free America you can basically purchase ANY firearm that strikes your fancy to include high capacity mags. In Marylinistan you are restricted to what is on the “approved handgun list” and cannot purchase, trade or receive high capacity mags while in the state. Good luck!

If at all possible ^^^

If extra husbanding is necessary? Do it.

Maryland is not worth it.

Probably easier, and FAR better, to find the wife a new job somewhere in America.

I would not say Maryland is worse than Boston. It is, however, much worse than Virginia. People live here for the jobs...the instant they retire, they are out like a shot.

A carry permit is just barely possible, but hard. You can get a Virginia non-resident permit, though. That might be of interest.
