I live in PA but work 12 hr shifts day and night 6 to 6 in Bodymore I have a permit to carry for pa. I've been known to forget that my weapon's still in my car, I don't like the prospects of what would happen to me if stopped by the MD police and the weapon was found.
I am in the same shoes, I live in PA but work in BMORE. I have forgotten to take my gun out of my car numerous times, I am always afraid that I will get pulled over and they will find it. BAM I believe it is a 5 year Felony charge. for a law abiding citizen who is licensed to carry. MD is a communist state ran by criminals just look at the mayor of BMORE who has been in court for a few years now on corruption charges.

Is there nothing we can do about this. I also lived in mass, which if you were just driving through the state and got pulled over and they found a properly licensed gun in your car, it was instant 1 year in jail with more to follow.

Anonymous, you and I have different opinions about the second amendment. I think I have the right to carry.I have been involved in a situation where I would probably not be here today if I had not been armed with my Smith & Wesson 357 magnum. The very presence of my gun made the other person drop his weapon, and my compassion for human life allowed him to live another day, behind bars. I will continue to carry.

First off, the 2nd amendment, the right to bear arms wasn't put there so everyone who wanted who was paranoid about being assaulted could carry a gun. It was put there to give the people the right to bear arms and form militia to protect against the tyranny of government. In other words, The United States, having just overcome the dictated laws and taxes of England, wanted protection to ensure the same couldn't be done by their own government. Now, do you really think we're on the brink of another Civil War? I highly doubt it. So there goes that need.
I too grew up and have lived in the Baltimore area all of my life. I like to think that while the area has it's problems, my life is not in imminent danger every time I step out of my home.
This is not to say that I think no one should own guns. I believe everyone should be given the right to a THOROUGH background check and then have the right to own a gun either for game (hunting) or home invasion protection. If someone breaks into your home with a gun, I think you have the right to shoot them. I'm not a bleeding heart liberal who thinks no one should own a gun and we shouldn't hunt or eat meat, blah, blah, blah. If you want to own a gun and use it responsibly for hunting and home protection, go right ahead and apply for a permit to do so.
But if you want to be able to walk the streets of my city/state (yeah, it's my city/state too, I pay my taxes) then you had better prove, beyond a doubt, that you need to carry that pistol because your life literally depends upon it.
Used to live in Lakeland in 21230. It was my home since 1957 and it aint' safe anymore. I agree mostly to what is said above but I like to carry my gun concealed (got a permit in AZ) If Joe Bad Ass want's my wallet I just have to pull my gun (which I keep in my back pocket) Usually it will be an uneven match because they normally use a knife. I travel to the border area a lot for my job and a concealed weapon is ideal since I want to look like just another gringo...the cartels are here and are killing people just for looking at them wrong or being in the wrong place. DHS and big sis don't want you to know the truth. The police are only around to right reports on crime not to save your life if the truth be told. I'll be in Baltimore in s few months and I will be carrying concealed...I'd rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6...The great Soviet Socialist Republic of Maryland is no place for me. I'll never live there again.

i agree with mostly all these comments. we should have the right to carry a pistol if we can pass a background check. that should be enough. look at it like this, people who want to harm others for whatever reason dont care about a permit. u can get a gun so easy now a days and they will harm if they really want to. i also think its bs to have to go through so much to get a permit. check it out, im in the marine corps and i wnt to get a pistol legaly so there is no problem. and my simple example is because in the military you have to do weapon qualifacations and when i go home i want to be able to go to a range or where ever and be able to shoot and practice with no problem. heres something else. im i afghanistan right now and the united states in general can trust me to kill the enemy but not protect my family and love ones or anyone in harms way at home. thats bs!!!

Addendum to previous post:
It is possible to obtain a concealed carry permit if you have to make large cash deposits on a regular basis. Again, why is money worth more than the life of everyone around me on a regular basis?
In case you were wondering, the only way to stop an active shooter (someone on a killing spree) is to kill them. Police take time, through no fault of their own, to respond to an incident. However, if a potential victim is armed and can defend themselves and the lives of those around them then there shouldn't be any law that prevents that from happening.
I agree with this and think Maryland should relax their requirement for concealed weapons permits. It may be to late after the applicant can prove threats or assaults.

I live in PA, and think you should have the right to carry if you pass the background checks. I live by one simple phrase,(I'd rather have a gun and not need it, than need it and not have it.)

Why is it the states with the major of people of diversity, do not allow CCP. I was born and raised in Pennsylvania were every who is legally able carries a firearm. Maryland, is backwords. I own assualt rifles that I have to cross state line to purchase hi-cap magazine that I use for TARGET shooting only. When Range time is changed by the 1/2 hour it is easier to come to the shooting alley with 200-300 rounds already loaded so you spend your time shooting not loading on the range. I though we had the right to Life liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Well the politicians in Maryland are endangering the right to life. If it is illegal to possess firearms, the no one in the state of maryland should have a gun outside his/her home (Right?). So following that screwed up logic all on duty police officers, body guards for the governer and mayors, State troopers, business onwers and doctors(because they statify the necessary right for a CCP) should not have firearms. Since it is illegal and everyone follows the law there is no need for these groups to have firearms?!? Now of course I do not think any of this groups should give up there right to carry, but my rights should not be infringed on either. I was also told that maryland was a retreat first state, meaning your dont even have the right to use deadly force in your home, if you can flee.(unbelievable) It is a firesale for all criminal is this State.

Overall, the comments are true here, however, you guys are missing one key factor. It really has nothing to do with the crime rate. It has everything to do with your common law right to carry a weapon and the right to protect yourself, your family and your community wherever you are. Whether you are at home, at the mall, in a parking lot, it doesn't matter. You have the right to protect yourself. The risk shouldn't even matter. Just because I have a higher risk of getting mugged in Maryland than I do in Virginia doesn't mean that the risk isn't there at all. Even if there is a .01% chance, I still have the right to protect myself and my family.

Makes SOME sense but how can you or I predict when "your life literally depends on it"??? Am i to wait until AFTER the robbery or carjacking in the street to APPLY for the permit ??? Thats ridiculous, there are RANDOM violent crimes every day in every city, there is no justifiable reason that an honest citizen with no record can not carry a weapon!!!!!!! Because 'Big Brother' says you can not ??? Realize that the same people in political office who DENY YOUR RIGHT are driven around in police caravans acting as their ARMED bodyguards. How many of them have 'beyond a doubt' had a threat against them that they can justify an armed guard to protect them but we as law abiding citizens are not mature or competant enough to protect ourselves???

Anonymous, the 2nd amendment clearly gives the right to bear arms to the people, "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
It is not delegated to either the state or federal government nor did it have any time restraint associated with it.
Having served 20 years in the military to protect and uphold the Constitution I find Maryland's law on this as an affront to what I and every volunteer service member put our lives at risk for.

The way it works in Maryland: only criminals carry concealed weapons. What protects the citizens is the fact that odds are overwhelmingly against encountering a criminal that wants to shoot you. It's more likely you would win the lottery. This is difficult for dirtbags to understand. That's why we have Virginia, for the dirtbags, we encourage them to migrate there.

Example: how about the accidents of people shooting themselves while cleaning a gun? A modern automatic pistol might separate into three pieces for cleaning. How stupid would you have to be shoot yourself with your own gun? I feel safer around smart criminals than these sub-par-intelligence goons!
