77r -Your Application Review Has Been Placed On Hold

Hello everyone.

Got my HQL hot off the press and went to purchase a new HK VP9, only to be met with the following email from the MSP Licensing division regarding my application, 3 business days into my application.

ďThe investigation of your Application to Purchase a Regulated Firearm has been placed on hold. Pursuant to ß5-125 (b), of the Public Safety Article, Annotated Code of Maryland, a licensee or other person may not sell, rent, or transfer a regulated firearm to a firearm applicant whose firearm application is placed on hold because of an open disposition of criminal proceedings against the firearm applicant. Accordingly, the seller/transferor has been notified that the transfer of the regulated firearm may not be completed at this time.

Your application is now being investigated by a specialized holds investigator. The holds investigator will request further information about your case from State Archives or the originating jurisdiction. Because we are dependent on outside resources providing this information, I am unable to provide an estimated time when your application will be removed from the hold status. Please know that our holds investigator will work as quickly as possible to resolve this issue.

Due to the confidential nature of the information involved, I am unable to state the basis for the application being placed on hold in this letter. Should you desire further information concerning the status of your application or if you obtain information that may expedite the hold investigation, you may contact the Firearms Registration Unit, Holds Investigator at 410-653-4500 during normal business hours.


Sincerely,
Captain Andrew Rossignol
Commander
Licensing DivisionĒ


Anyone ever got this? I have a misdemeanor expungement from 3-4 years ago, which was a disqualifying crime but has been completely expunged for several years now. Iíve passed numerous employment background checks, including fingerprint checks, so I know Iím clear.

HQL application was also approved without a hiccup.

Iíll update this thread once the Hold is resolved, but Iím wondering if anyoneís ever seen or heard of this happening before.

Thank you.

It's for the children....

Probably buying so soon after getting permission from your overlords, they didn't and don't want to you to own anything. Because their database hadn't been updated yet.

Since your previous nics denial and issues from 2015-2017 seems the best course of action would be a lawyer.

Might be, if this doesn’t just resolve itself. I had a successful appeal that took about 3 years for them to process. Didn’t get a UPIN though, but my HQL app went through without issue after, so I’m hoping this won’t be an issue either.

I have seen quite a few people who are in similar situations. They just were approved for their HQL and then they are denied when they try to purchase a regulated firearm (handgun).

After that their HQL is revoked.

I "think" that they must check additional data bases when processing the 77r compared to when they process the HQL.

I am not saying this will happen in your case but it is a possibility.

Best of luck.

Plus they get you on record for purchasing a handgun in MD whilst prohibited (at least in MD).

Thanks all,

The issue has been resolved. I spoke with the MD Licensing division by phone yesterday. They had an error in the system which showed a denied transaction from last December, despite my NICS coming back clear. I also never even tried to purchase anything in december so it was a bit strange.

Either way the issue was resolved by the end of the day and I’m now “not disapproved”, and can pick up the firearm. hallelujah!

And to answer one of the comments, I’m over 30 years old.
