    Is it unlawful to carry in PG County??

    I've read the MD statute on carrying while at work, but I'm kinda torn about carrying while making my daily deposit at the bank. Will I be breaking the law carrying while I am taking my deposit to the bank. I've already got permission to carry while at work. I'm a store manager for a retail business and I carry a substantial amount of cash to the bank and I'm located in PG county...Forestville/District Heights area a pretty bad area.

    PLEASE LET ME KNOW....THANKS

    From what I can tell about MD law that would be a definite NO! Unless you have a Maryland permit (unrestricted) you cannot carry ANYWHERE outside your home or place of business. If you are allowed to carry on the job -- good for you, but if you are conducting personal business my advice is NO CARRY. If you were in Virginia, Delaware, or Pennsylvania, that is another matter entirely. Maryland takes a dim view of the 2A.

    No carry of any kind without a LTCH.


    With some limited

    exceptions MD Statute 4-203


    Felony

    Wrong.

    Carrying a concealed firearm in MD without a MD-issued LTCH is a MISDEMEANOR the first time you are caught, if the violator is caught while not doing anything else that is illegal. It is only a felony if you are also engaged in some sort of criminal activity, like robbery, possessing drugs, being on school property, or a crime of violence...


    (c) (1) A person who violates this section is guilty of a misdemeanor and on conviction is subject to the penalties provided in this subsection.

    Then again, if you are a member of the venerable Conaway family of Baltimore, carrying a concealed handgun without a valid permit while chasing and threatening someone isn't even a misdemeanor. It will just prompt the MSP to "remind" you that your permit expired and issue you a new one...

    How can you say it's wrong when you even post the conditions under which it's clearly a felony?



    Sorry it's not wrong. Even according to you.

    One would assume that someone posting on THIS list was not asking the question because they were intent on committing a violent crime while carrying. Unless of course, the OP was a member of BPD or the MSP, in which case, carrying a gun without a permit while committing crimes of violence is actually a JOB REQUIREMENT, not a violation of State Statute...
