Maryland State Police will continue to enforce the Handgun Qualification License (HQL) law, despite a federal appeals court ruling it unconstitutional.

The law requires a rigorous process for handgun purchase, including background checks, safety courses, and waiting periods.

The court ruled that the law restricts citizens’ ability to possess handguns and lacks historical justification. (Trending: Biden Shamefully Removes God From National Address)

Judge Julius Richardson wrote, “The challenged law restricts the ability of law-abiding adult citizens to possess handguns, and the state has not presented a historical analogue that justifies its restriction; indeed, it has seemingly admitted that it couldn’t find one.”

Maryland State Police will openly disregard the ruling.

“At this time, the HQL law remains in effect and there are no immediate changes in the process to purchase a firearm in Maryland,” wrote MSP leadership to all members of the department after the ruling was handed down.

Maryland officials have 14 days to file for a rehearing before the full appeals court, and Governor Wes Moore stated that his administration would “continue to fight” for the law.
