Maryland’s ghost gun ban begins this week on June 1. The law bans the purchase, transfer; or sale of any firearm that isn’t imprinted with a serial number; in accordance with federal law.

Additionally, the Maryland General Assembly approved the measure on March 29 to ban the so-called ghost guns, which don’t have serial numbers since their essentially self-built with a kit. According to FOX5 DC, by March 2023 all possession of a ghost gun will be illegal. Even still; believe it or not; Maryland’s governor, Larry Hogan declined to sign the bill, saying that the law would’nt penalize carriers of the gun. Instead, he urged lawmakers to pass crime-fighting measures that align with his values.

Nontheless, moving forward any ghost gun made after October 22, 1968 will have to have a serial number attached to it. Since the Magruder High School shooting in Montgomery County, several more ghost guns have turned up.
