“Maryland has instituted legal guidelines that ban rankings of firearms effectively as a result of they appear to be other guns, and that cannot be allowed to stand,” referred to SAF founder and govt vice president Alan M.

All legislations-abiding adults have a constitutional right to purchase any of the semi-computerized firearms on the market these days. Maryland’s laws are unconstitutional and we appear ahead to vindicating the rights of our shoppers and all individuals in Maryland and across the U.S. in this case and others.”
