Maryland Open Holster Rally – January 18th
Lawyers Mall in Annapolis, MD.
Maryland –-(AmmoLand.com)- Purpose :
To have a large, completely peaceful and unarmed gathering of supporters of “Shall Issue” laws in Maryland.
We will be wearing empty holsters in protest of the current “Discretionary Issue” system that sees Handgun Carry Permits issued only to those politically connected or dealing in extraordinarily large amounts of physical cash, or the occasional person who can meet the high burden of proof needed to receive one for self defense.
Parking: As most of you know, parking in downtown Annapolis is at a premium during the General Assembly session.
As such, we strongly recommend that you take advantage of the free shuttle service provided from the Navy/Marine Corps Stadium on Rowe Blvd, at Exit 24 off of Route 50.
Parking fees are very reasonable and the shuttle will drop you off in close proximity to Lawyer’s Mall. Just tell the driver where you want to go.
Delegates Michael Smigiel and Don Dwyer as well as Larry Pratt of Gun Owners of America are confirmed as of this writing and more are expected to confirm within the next couple of days.
12 PM to 2 PM
Lawyers Mall in Annapolis
Basic Safety Rules :
All holsters must remain empty at all times. Do not put toy guns, training guns or the like in your holster. We want to emphasize the emptiness of the holsters and our lack of protection. The holster will simply be a fashion accessory, symbolizing our vulnerability to criminals.

Maryland Shall Issue is an all volunteer, non-partisan effort dedicated to the preservation and advancement of all gunowners’ rights in Maryland, with a primary goal of CCW reform to allow all law-abiding citizens the right to carry a concealed weapon; and to the education of the community to the awareness that ’shall issue’ laws have, in all cases, resulted in decreased rates of violent crime.”
