    you're covered under the ufa as long as you keep them locked up, if loaded, separate from the gun

    Peaceable journey law applies if the gun is locked in a separate compartment from the driver and the ammo.

    30 round mags are legal to POSSESS in MD, you just cannot purchase them. So you're absolutely fine.

    I have plenty of 30 rounders, I just need to buy them out of state and transport them back.

    It's a pretty powerful law, for sure. And really necessary. Having to learn and adhere to the laws of every state, county, and city you pass through on a trip would be bullshit.

    Worth limiting automatic rifles? I don't know. That's a bullshit compromise to have to make. But then I'm adamant that almost every gun law in existence is a violation of the constitution.

    Automatic weaponry is over rated.
