    This is a Clear Violation of Maryland Code 4-209, and such Action by Prince Georges' County is Preempted under Maryland Law!

    MD Counties and municipalities violate MD State Statute ALL THE TIME. Usually, if such violations will result in 1) increased revenue, 2) increased incarceration (which equals increased revenue) or 3) decreased civil rights, the State DOJ and Attorney General will give them a "pass".

    The "traffic camera" programs in Mongtomery, Howard, Baltimore and PG Counties are ALL in violation of MD State Statute, but because they have written their contracts with the camera service provider (which is in TEXAS) to hand over any "surplus revenues" to the State Treasury, Herr Gansler has given them a "pass" to run their illegal, extortionary criminal enterprise.

    In Maryland, the "color of law" is green...

    We might also want to "follow the money" on this PG County database program. What company is providing the IT services? How did the contract get awarded? Who owns the company? Follow the money on this project, and I GUARANTEE, you will find some major conflicts of interest, dicey deals, croneyism and nepotism.

    The Maryland Government contracting world is about as honest and open as a Chicago construction business, or a NYC trash hauler...
    It is our cause to dispel the foggy thinking which avoids hard decisions in the delusion that a world of conflict will somehow mysteriously resolve itself into a world of harmony, if we just don't rock the boat or irritate the forces of aggression—and this is hogwash."

    Ive never really offended any of my guns.

    Well, maybe when I dont take one to the range but take the others and that gun has to sit in the safe all day.
    Yeah, I guess that would be offensive to a gun.

    Dreamer:

    Well..., regardless of whether or not The Locality Skates State Law or not..., it is still an Illegal and Unlawful Act to Violate The Plain Terms of Maryland Code 4-209!

    The Maryland State Rifle and Pistol Association Fought against, and Defeated, Anne Arundel County when They Attempted to Regulate Firearm Transactions at Local Pawn Shops!

    If Someone were to Contact Them..., I would Bet that They would be Interested in This Manner.

    MSRPA had absolutely nothing to do with that bill being locked up in the Rules Committee.

    They also had absolutely nothing to do with the original AACO ordinance being ruled illegal by the AG's office.

    Further, the bill had absolutely nothing to do with pawn shops.

    Except the AACo police seemed to think differently, and so did several Council members, and they were trying to convince Pawn Shops that they WERE under this code, and THAT is why the AG had to be brought into the fray to set the local thugs straight as to the REAL wording and requirements of State law...

    The AACO PD were not trying to apply the ordinance to pawn shops because it had nothing to do with pawn shops in any manner shape or form since they are covered under a different section of the code and were already required to do what was specified by the ordinance.

    The ordinance and subsequent law were applicable to dealers of second hand merchandise that were not pawn shops.

    Antique shops? Goodwill?

    Any place that sold second hand merchandise of "tangible" nature, but it likewise excluded those charitable organizations, antique stores, shops dealing strictly in furniture.

    Effectively, by the time you stripped away all of the exemptions you found that it was an anti-gun ordinance that didn't once use the words gun or firearm because at the end of the day the only business that it really applied to were gun shops who bought and sold used guns.
