I really hope ,and I m sure you will - get the LTCF permit.
As a native Marylander, though, it kinda makes me angry that the citizens are again getting shafted.
If I still lived in MD (and thank god I dont), I would be pissed that other people from different states can carry in my state, but I couldn't.
Now I would not take it out on fine folks like you or want to stop allowing you guys from carrying in my sate.
But I know I would feel very betrayed by my law makers.
I remember when I was 23 years old, there was a "situation" at my office and the possible outcome was very life threatening to me and my family.
I had the States Attorney of the Circuit court of Anne Arundel county AND an Annapolis FBI Special Agent who were my references to get a MD Concealed Handgun License, it was denied even with those two fine upstanding people vouching for my need for one. (perhaps I can share that story in a different thread)
It was that day, I started the process of moving out of that state.
