Re: Carrying a Handgun in a vehicle in Maryland

Depends on your non-resident carry license. Pa...NO. Utah... YES.

Don't quote me, but I always thought you could, as long as the ammo and gun were secured separately.

William will you teach me how to write, Cassius will you show me how to fight.

Re: Carrying a Handgun in a vehicle in Maryland

That is correct under Federal Law..

Transporting Firearms in Maryland
Can I legally transport firearms interstate? MD State Police
Yes, under Title 18, Section 926A, of the United States Code, a person who is not prohibited from possessing, transporting, shipping, or receiving a firearm shall be entitled to transport a firearm for any lawful purpose from any place where he may lawfully possess and carry such firearm to any place where he may lawfully possess and carry such firearm if, during such transportation the firearm is unloaded, neither the firearm nor any ammunition being transported is readily accessible or is directly accessible from the passenger compartment. In the case the vehicle does not have a compartment separate from the driver's compartment the firearm or ammunition shall be contained in a locked compartment other than the glove compartment or console.
_______________________




You have to distinguish the difference between "Carrying" and "Transporting"

Re: Carrying a Handgun in a vehicle in Maryland

It is only correct under the Federal Law if you are travelling THROUGH the state, not stopping to visit.

Since it would not be legal for you to be in possession of the firearm in Maryland, the Federal Law would not apply.

Re: Carrying a Handgun in a vehicle in Maryland

BOTH Steve in PA & timberdoodle are right. Strictly interpreted, you can only pass through and not stop. But I wouldn't trust Maryland to see it even that way. It truly is a communist state, as evidenced by this now famous incidient:

Florida man harrassed for owning a gun that he left at home.

I try to avoid even driving through Maryland, but now with the recent change in VA, IDK what I'm going to do on our next trip to OBX.

Pete,

The reciprocity agreement with VA was reinstated the end of January. You should be good driving through Virginia.
