Standard Capacity Magazines

Can someone post a link to the Maryland magazine law? Want to print out the evidence that it is legal to own and possess standard capacity magazines in Maryland. Thanks

Nice, quick work StantonCree.

OP, the person to whom you show that statute may or may not believe that there is not another part of the code that bans +10 mags. You won't find affirmation, you only get to possess them because a possession ban is nowhere to be found.

It is from the same Jamesonian statute that decrees "no moreth than two 10 gauge guns of shot shall be mounted on the county dredge."

"Ifn thereth be a futureth clipazine invention, capacity shalleth not exceed numbereth of phalangeal digits."

Many believe this was a self serving law put in place by John Calvert, AKA "12 finger jack."

The problem is, the law does not say that possession is legal. It just does not say that possession is illegal.

yup:

(b) Prohibited. -- A person may not manufacture, sell, offer for sale, purchase, receive, or transfer a detachable magazine that has a capacity of more than 10 rounds of ammunition for a firearm.


It DOES NOT say possession, transport or use of a standard capacity magazine is prohibited and the other relevant actions are legal in our slightly more free neighboring states. You will not find a law that affirms the legality of pretty much anything. They dont really work that way.

That's not a problem. That's how rules work in this country. Can you imagine if there was a statute declaring EVERYTHING that was legal?

You sound like Obama when he said "The problem with the Constitution is that it is a set of negatives, not a list of positives" (paraphrasing).

EDIT: found the quote: "the Constitution is a charter of negative liberties. It says what the states can't do to you. Says what the federal government can't do to you but doesn't say what the federal government or state government must do on your behalf."

We don't need to be told what we can do. We just can't do the things that are spelled out.
