well in Maryland now if you want to buy a handgun you will have to be fingerprinted. as well you have to take a gun safety class at a cost of $400.00 I heard. i'm so glad I moved from my home state 7 years ago. oh and you also have to pass the background check and wait because of the waiting period 7-10 days after all of the above. so buying a gun in Maryland now takes I don't know how long. lets hear from the members who live in Maryland. am I correct?
