PIKESVILLE (WJZ) — The Maryland State Police Licensing Division has mailed out more than half of the almost 1,000 handgun qualification licenses that have been applied for under the state’s new firearms law.

The Licensing Division mailed 508 handgun qualification licenses to approved applicants, 15 days after the new law took effect.

Since Oct. 1, 904 applications for a handgun qualification license have been received.

State Police personnel have so far conducted the required background checks and approved 761 of the applicants.

The remaining number of approved applicants should be receiving their licenses shortly.

The state’s new gun law requires a Maryland resident to possess a valid handgun qualification license before he or she may purchase, rent, or receive a handgun.
