Thats why I avoid Maryland. Although I grew up there and spent over twenty years there, I have no desire to go back. I was there when the had the so called "snipers", I had to go through one of the many checkpoints they had set up then. Where I proceded to have rifles pointed at me. To make matters worse, they found a single loose shotgun shell (Left over from the range the previous weekend). I spent about 20 minutes in cuffs until they realized that no law had been broken. Maryland is definetely no picnic for gun enthusiasts.
