It is extremely important that if you obtain a Maryland concealed handgun permit,
you must be aware of all the current laws and requirements of this state.
A Maryland permit does not supersede any other state's laws or requirements.
* In Maryland it is almost impossible to obtain a permit. An applicant must show documented evidence of recent threats, robberies, and/or assaults, supported by official police reports or notarized statements from witnesses, and has a good and substantial reason to wear, carry, or transport a handgun, such as a finding that the permit is necessary as a reasonable precaution against apprehended danger.
* Business owners who do not live in Maryland may also apply for a permit.
