Maryland Open Carry Incidents, #3

Updated: Jun 19, 2023

You will start to see a rise of those in Maryland exercising their legal and constitutionally protected right to open carry in Maryland. Those that haven't trained with us: "But I thought open carry is illegal in Maryland..." Those that trained with others: "But but but my instructor told me that open carry is illegal and that I would get shot or arrested by law enforcement"

Open carry isn't for everyone. Open carry of a long gun is completely legal in Maryland, no permit nor training needed. Open carry of a Handgun in Maryland requires the person to have their Maryland Handgun Permit (not to be confused with the Maryland Handgun Qualification License, HQL).

We will be posting videos from times where people are exercising this ability, sometimes with a law enforcement interaction- sometimes not. We are posting these for educational opportunities not only for American citizens but also for Maryland law enforcement officers as we have found far too often that they are not receiving adequate training on what the law allows/does not prohibit as well as how to interact with a lawful carrier of firearms.

This isn't a "Got Ya!" scheme or attempts to trigger the anti-gun crowd. Its simply people taking steps to ensure their own safety while educating those that live, work, visit Maryland what their legal rights are along the way.

These videos will be shared on our YouTube as they are sent to us periodically from time to time. Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel for the notifications of videos added.
