Firearm Registration Checks in MD?

From the National Hunting Examiner:
According to the Associated Gun Clubs of Baltimore (AGC) has received several verified reports of the Maryland State Police questioning citizens about the firearms they legally own.

These incidents involve citizens and firearms that have no apparent connection to any crime, or any illegal activity.

That would be the historical use of registration lists.

Can any MD residents verify this?

I can't verify that they're doing it AGAIN, but they did it back when the Beltway Sniper thing was unfolding... So it's been known to happen.

And to think that anti-rights advocates are constantly asking for examples of registration lists being used for confiscations, harrassments of the law-abiding, and other questionable purposes.

Then again, denial of reailty comes more-or-less naturally to them.

In Maryland if you buy a regulated firearm your weapon is registered with the state, yes.

Well, yes. The question is whether the Police are currently using the lists to do home to home 'checks'.

YES it is happening. We have at least two reports at MD from reputable members.
