Maryland Info: Background checks for private sales signed

Loophole closed

Previously, in Maryland, anytime a person received a gun from someone else; whether a private sale, a gift or a loan; no background check was required. That changes with the passage this past week of SB 346. Now all private sales and loans must pass a background check with a licensed dealer.

The Bill

👍 Senate Bill 346 will require the loan of a gun pass a background check, just like the sale of a gun.
