Maryland and Open Carry
This might sound crazy but apparently Maryland actually allows open carry of long guns.

Taken from page 7
B. Maryland Does Not Require a Permit to Wear and Carry a Long Gun Outside the Home.
Outside of limited exceptions, Maryland does not require a permit to wear and carry a long gun outside the home.

Maryland prohibits carrying any firearm on school property, Md. Code Ann., Crim. Law 4- 102; on government property, COMAR; at state airports and ports, COMAR, COMAR, COMAR; and in or very near public places during a public demonstration, Md. Code Ann., Crim. Law 4-208.

This is shocking and weird!

You can always sling a rifle over your shoulder and take a stroll downtown, might not work out too well though! :D

There's a thread on a local forum about this. Everyone is saying don't be the first one to test this out. LEO might take a different point of view than the AG who is only saying that open carry is allowed to try and prevent the state from turning into a shall issue instead of the may issue state that it currently is.
