    (1) sell, transfer, possess, or transport a ghost gun, undetectable gun, handgun, rifle, or shotgun, or ammunition or major component for these firearms; or
    (2) sell, transfer, possess, or transport a firearm created through a 3D printing process..
    (b) This section does not:
    (1) prohibit the teaching of firearms safety or other educational or sporting use in the areas described in subsection (a);
    (2) apply to a law enforcement officer, or a security guard licensed to carry the firearm;
    (3) apply to the possession of a firearm or ammunition, other than a ghost gun or an undetectable gun, in the person’s own home;
    (4) apply to the possession of one firearm, and ammunition for the firearm, at a business by either the owner who has a permit to carry the firearm, or one authorized employee of the business who has a permit to carry the firearm;
    (5) apply to the possession of a handgun by a person who has received a permit to carry the handgun under State law; or
    (6) apply to separate ammunition or an unloaded firearm:
    (A) transported in an enclosed case or in a locked firearms rack on a motor vehicle, unless the firearm is a ghost gun or an undetectable gun; or
    (B) being surrendered in connection with a gun turn-in or similar program approved by a law enforcement agency.
    (c) This section does not prohibit a gun show at a multipurpose exhibition facility if:
    (1) the facility’s intended and actual primary use is firearms sports (hunting or target, trap, or skeet shooting) or education (firearms training); or
    (2) no person who owns or operates the facility or promotes or sponsors the gun show received financial or in-kind support from the County (as defined in Section 57-13(a)) during the preceding 5 years, or after December 1, 2001, whichever is shorter; and

    (b) evidence that the applicant will provide adequate professional security personnel and any other safety measure required by the Police Chief, and will comply with this Chapter; and

    Yup. Business owners need a carry permit in their own business.

    (b) This section does not:
    (4) apply to the possession of one firearm, and ammunition for the firearm, at a business by either the owner who has a permit to carry the firearm, or one authorized employee of the business who has a permit to carry the firearm;

    I so wish I could get speak in front of these idiots, I could make them all look like bigger idiots. With things like common sense, but they will still do what they do.

    Just give me 20 mins to debate them on camera.

    Welcome to Montgomery County; trying hard to become the new Baltimore.

    Increase Section 8 housing, defund the police, bring in more New Americans, and make the county a Gun-Free Zone. (And encourage bounties on SCOTUS justices; take two out and we'll reverse Bruen.)

    The definition public assembly that they adopted is overly broad. It includes both public and private property. Conceivably, it could include a grocery store.

    Fortunately, I don't live in MoCo, but my hope is that they showed their hand early, and it all gets squashed by the courts and all of their hopes and dreams of disarming our society are left in ruins.

    These people are great. They never bothered to read the decision. They understand nothing.

    OK, I'm new to the group and MD Politician's mindset. What is an 'undetectable' gun? Will there be cops on every street corner doing searches to verify you do not posess a firearm?
