MILLER: Here are the 81 specific gun models banned in Maryland

Gov. O’Malley signs ‘assault weapon’ and handgun ban

Gov. Martin O’Malley gleefully signed into law Thursday a foolish gun-control measure that arbitrarily bans certain make and model firearms. There seems no rhyme or reason to the list, other than he picked guns that either sound or look scary. 

Broadly, any rifle that has two of three characteristics - folding stock, grenade launcher or flash suppressor — is considered an “assault weapon” and now illegal in Maryland. The statute also makes specific pistols, rifles and, shotguns — “or a copy regardless of the producer or manufacturer” — banned in the “Free State.” They are as follows:
