What’s happening?

Gov. Wes Moore signed into law on Tuesday gun control measures that will limit who can carry firearms and where, Sam Janesch and Hannah Gaskill report for the Baltimore Sun. The legislation will also increase the criminal penalty for people caught illegally carrying a firearm from three years to five years.

What are the specifics of the laws?

Starting on Oct.1, the new law will prevent residents with a license to carry a gun from bringing their firearms into public spaces such as government buildings, schools, bars, restaurants, performance venues, polling places, and more. The legislation does allow some exemptions, including for law enforcement officers, correctional officers, security guards and members of the military who are on duty or traveling to and from duty.

Another law will bar some residents from obtaining a permit to carry a concealed firearm. Among those not eligible for permits are people on supervised probation after being convicted of a crime with a penalty of more than a year in prison, people caught driving under the influence, and those who’ve violated a protective order. It also prohibits  people with a mental illness and history of violent behavior, those who have been involuntarily committed to a mental health facility for more than a month, and people subject to a protective order from receiving a license.  

Anything else I should know? 

The National Rifle Association Institute for Legislative Action filed a lawsuit in federal court against the state of Maryland, claiming the law preventing residents from carrying in certain locations is too broad and will impede legal gun owners from being able to carry firearms for self-defense.
