I have zero knowlege about Maryland law, but I do spot a few problems you might be creating for yourelf. Hope you don't mind my pointing them out to you.
stay safe.If someone lives in a condo (or apartment, or single-family home) it is legal in MD to CC or OC inside your home and on your own property.
So what exactly constitutes "your property"?
If someone lives in a condo, and is an owner (not a renter or sub-lease), do the hallways inside the building but outside your unit (like the trash chute area, the mail box area and the laundry) also constitute "your property" or would carry in those areas be illegal in MD?
In a condo you exclusively own the property inside the unit's walls. All the other property is owned in common. It's not "your" property but the property of the condo association or whatever other legal entity owns the common property.
What about the parking lot? It is private property, so carrying there would not be "public display of a firearm" because the area is not "public"--it is private property.
Unless Maryland has some good case law defining the concept of curtilige (does Maryland even recognize the concept?) you are going to be committing a "public display of a firearm" because the public has an unimpeded and unrestricted view of the area, regardless of who owns the land the act was committed on. This is based on the presumption that Maryland considers a "public display" anything the public can see without actually violating trespass law - leave your curtains/blinds up and walk around your house naked and the public can see you from the sidewalk/street it's a "public display" even though you never went outside. Keep the curtains/blinds drawn and force the neighbors to trespass onto your property to peek in through the edge of the window and it could still be a "public display" but I think that ruling finally got overturned (and I can't remember but feel fairly safe in saying it was not in Maryland anyhow).
I don't know enough about MD property law to figure this one out on my own, and MD Statute does not address condos specifically with regards to what does and does not constitute "private property" with regards to carry law.
Me, too. Everything above is generic. You'll need to research it against Maryland case law to see how far off base I might be.
Any MD "legal eagles" out there who have an answer?
I've considered calling the AG's office, but I imagine the answer I would get from them would be about as straight as a plate of spaghetti...
Will the Maryland AG give an opinion to a private citizen? Here in Virginia the AG only gives opinions to members of the General Assembly or (I think) local government (mayor/board of supervisor). Even if the Maryland AG gives an opinion, how binding will it be on a Maryland court?
