HQL required for ALL regulated gun owners?

Apologies if this is a dupe, but what gives with this from the MSP Licensing Division website?

"If you own a regulated firearm prior to October 1, 2013, you must apply for the Handgun Qualification License. However, you are exempt from the training component."

A friend of mine pointed this out and I had to read it about 30 times. I assume it's missing a relevant clause in there, like "and wish to buy a regulated firearm after Oct. 1".

See:

Its a typo ... "own" should be "owned"

A typo that seems to re-appear on the website every couple days. Only to get taken back down when we complain. You are not required to get one. However if you do, you are exempt from the training bit.

Even "If you owned a regulated firearm prior to October 1, 2013, you must apply for the Handgun Qualification License" doesn't really change the meaning without the context of actually wanting to purchase a handgun after Oct. 1.

I used to get mad when people who haven't been paying attention would ask uninformed questions about the new laws, but after reading MSPs actual website I have more sympathy.

This falls under the training section for HQL, not under the general information section. That page is found here: http://mdsp.org/Organization/Support...onLicense.aspx

While I understand the confusion due to lack of clarity, the question asked by the OP doesn't make sense. Let's say my only gun is a regulated firearm, and I sell that prior to 10/1. Why would I have to get the HQL if I don't own any guns?

That's a good point--"owned" would actually imply that anyone who had ever owned a regulated firearm in MD at any point would need an HQL, perhaps even including the deceased.

An HQL is required for anyone that wants to PURCHASE a handgun: clowns, priests, CCW holders, Frosh, current regulated firearms owners, Democrats, commies....anyone

That being said, anyone, including current regulated firearms owners, needs an HQL to PURCHASE a handgun. If your HQL expires, you can still keep what you have because the HQL is for the PURCHASE of handguns.
