How gun control laws in Maryland affect local gun owners

Many gun owners in Maryland are enthusiastic about their right to own firearms, but the general public is concerned about the safety issues posed by those firearms. Maryland state and federal laws have passed regulations to control possession and use of guns in Maryland. Even though regulating gun ownership is a bit tricky, gun control regulations by both state and federal laws try to balance the interests of people who own firearms against those whose major concern is safety.

Helping Maryland residents deal with serious criminal charges

It probably goes without saying that a criminal conviction can land a person in a number of serious social, professional and personal difficulties. Therefore, it is important to take prompt action whenever someone is charged with a crime. However, that may not be an easy task, as Maryland laws tend to be strict and prosecutors are often zealous for a conviction.

Fourth of July weekend yields over 5,000 DUI citations

Driving under the influence of alcohol is an offense in Maryland and in the rest of the country. However, during holidays, such as the recent July 4th weekend, a number of people are cited for DUI. In fact, law enforcement officers often increase their efforts during the holidays because many people are likely drinking at local festivities, and DUIs can lead to damaging or deadly accidents.

Initial hearing in a Maryland criminal case

One of the major factors to be considered when faced with a criminal charge, like robbery, theft, rape or any other charge, is to know what the various defenses that are available to the accused. Depending on the case, criminal defense attorneys may be able to prove that the accused is innocent of all the charges. However, many times the accused's neighbors and co-workers believe that they are guilty even before the verdict is turned in. Therefore, prompt justice becomes a necessity.
