Sheriff Plans Selective Enforcement of New Md. Gun Law


OAKLAND, Md. (AP)- Garrett County's sheriff is asking county commissioners to support selective enforcement of Maryland's new gun control law.

Sheriff Robert Corley voiced his opposition to the new law at Tuesday's commissioners meeting and presented the panel with a resolution he says protects citizens' Second Amendment rights.

Corley plans to reserve enforcement of the new law except when someone is suspected in a violent crime or has been convicted of a prior felony or adjudicated with a dangerous mental illness.

Corley says the resolution is similar to resolutions in Carroll and Cecil counties that state the law infringes Second Amendment rights. Two commissioners supported the resolution and the third suggested soliciting citizen input and a review by legal counsel.
