Smile Pistol w/ Brace = SBR in MD?

I recently obtained a Ruger 9mm PC Charger and added a muzzle break and a brace. That brought it to an overall length of 27" with the brace extended. If Bidumb's ATF declares a pistol with a brace to be an SBR, then in order to comply with MD regs, the overall length must be a minimum of 29.5". To insure compliance, I added three picatinny risers to the picatinny rail on the "butt" of the Charger and then re-attached the brace and, voila -- it's 30" long. As in all things, where's there's a will, there's a way.

It's much easier if you just stop caring about this silliness.

Everyone is entitled to handle these "silly" situations as they deem appropriate, but I have too much to lose in being cited for an infraction of established law.

If what you suggest happens, you still wouldn't be in compliance, would you? You would be in possession of an SBR without a stamp, unless they include a grace period for people to obtain them.

Your first mistake was being willing to comply with Maryland's contrived and unconstitutional laws.

Using that logic when they ban your magazine fed semi-automatics you're going to have to turn them all in. You might as well do it now

It's best to get an early start on turning in your weapons. Stephen Halbrook, in his book Gun Control in the Third Reich, described the hilarity of the police when people who were ordered to turn in their guns were arrested in the streets on the way to turn them in.

By the way, it was not only firearms that were sanctioned; edged weapons, and even sharpened shovels, were banned, and if you were unlucky enough to be found in possession you were subject to arrest and imprisonment. If you were unlucky enough t be arrested by the Secret State Police (Gestapo), your arrest and subsequent fate might not even be recorded; you'd just disappear.

The handy registration lists were the primary source of information regarding whom to search. Lists of politically undesirable individuals were also kept. Subversive literature was also vigorously sought out and destroyed, and the social undesirables who possessed such things were arrested and imprisoned.

Now that so many socially problematic individuals have outed themselves in various online venues, it goes without saying that they will be carefully scrutinised, detained and questioned, and their homes searched for weapons and items which demonstrate the likelihood of their being enemies of the state.

Anyone who still believes that "it can't happen here" are welcome to their opinions, but recent history adequately demonstrates that it can, and quite possibly will.
