Illegal weapon possession in Maryland cannot only pose serious consequences for a resident’s image but it can also wreak havoc on nearly every aspect of the accused’s life. If convicted, the state of Maryland has some stringent laws against felons who possess firearms. Likewise, federal law imposes harsh penalties on people who are convicted of gun crimes.
In an attempt to curb gun violence, U.S. law mandates that all private transfers of guns and assault weapons be done through a licensed arms dealer.
A Maryland resident charged with illegal gun possession, possession of a firearm after previous felony conviction, possession of a firearm after committing a crime, or using a firearm during a crime of violence can be sentenced to a minimum 5 years in jail without parole or 20 years in jail for each offense.
