Maryland State Police New Policy

We received this letter today from Maryland State Police saying:

"FIREARMS BULLETIN #10-1
INFORMATION ON .22 CALIBER RIM FIRE "ASSAULT WEAPONS"

The purpose of this letter is to disseminate information regarding the Maryland Regulated Firearms Laws pertaining to the regulation of assult weapons.

Manufacturers have been producing firearms that are reproductions or imitations of specifically enumerated assault weapons as defined in Public Safety Title 5, subtitle 1, section 101(P)(2). At issue is which of these firearms does an inidividual have to complete an Application to Purchase a Regulated Firearm (MSP 77R-1, 77R-2, 77R-3) to comply with Maryland Regulations.

The Maryland State Police Firearms Registration Section will not require an individual to complete an Application to Purchase a Regulated Firearm... for a reproduction or imitation of a firearm that is only cosmetically similar to a specifically enumerated assault weapon as defined in Public Safety Title 5, subtitle 1, section 101(P)(2). The individual will have to comply with all Federal Regulations regarding the purchase of firearms.

An individual will be required to comply with Maryland Regulations for a firearm that is:
1)a reproduction or imitation of a firearm that is cosmetically similar to a specifically enumerated assault weapon as defined in Public Safety Title 5, subtitle 1, section 101(P)(2) and;
2)has completely interchangeable internal components necessary for the full operation and function of any one of the specifically enumerated assault weapons as defined in Public Safety Title 5, subtitle 1, section101(P)(2)."

So, in layman's terms, the 22 copies/clones of assault weapons for example the Smith & Wesson M&P 15-22, etc. is no longer regulated and can be purchased by anyone 18 years of age or older.

Actually came from Maryland State Police Licensing to All Regulated Firearms Dealers.

I was thinking as I clicked on this thread that the MSP would be bringing back the ammo log or something stupid like that. What a pleasant surprise!

Hasn't that always been the policy? What am I missing? What weapons that might have previously been "considered" regulated will now not be?

Cool. I bought a Sig 522 at the last gun show in Chantilly. The vendor let me purchase it since he didn't think it was regulated in VA or MD. It wasn't quite clear whether this was legal or not. From what I see the 522 isn't regulated.

This is nothing new. This has always been the policy. They are only correcting the dealers who made their own policy in the past and then blamed it on the MSP.
