Handgun Offenses Attorneys in Baltimore
Defending the Rights of Clients Throughout Maryland
Maryland has some of the strictest laws for possession of a handgun. Obtaining a permit to carry a concealed handgun is very difficult in the state, and the penalties for being caught with a handgun without a permit are severe.
People who have been convicted of crimes can also be disqualified from owning or possessing a hand gun. Most people are aware that felony convictions can make you ineligible for gun ownership, however, many do not know that crimes of violence and statutory misdemeanors can also result in your right to own a handgun being revoked.
