William Donald Schaefer on Jan. 17, his last full day in office, would have given the state's Handgun Roster Board more specific standards for determining which handguns should be banned for sale in Maryland.The proposal also would have given the board authority to apply those new standards retroactively to handguns it has approved for sale in the past.

Maryland's new handgun licensing law will be waived for the nearly 50,000 gun buyers still waiting for background checks, the state police said Tuesday. The department also deployed a new team of two dozen data-entry workers to help address the backlog, which has left gun purchasers waiting for months. Maryland's new gun law, which takes effect Tuesday, calls for handgun buyers to give their fingerprints to law enforcement and get a $50 license. An advisory letter from the attorney general said even buyers who applied long ago would have to comply with those provisions if they didn't pick up their firearm until Oct. 1 or after.

The U.S. Supreme Court said Tuesday that it will not examine Maryland's handgun permit law, leaving to stand a lower court ruling that the state's restrictive rules for carry permits do not unconstitutionally infringe upon gun-owners' rights. The justices did not explain their reasoning, but the decision intensified a simmering dispute over the limits of firearms restrictions. Other challenges are pending in federal courts — including two in Maryland attacking the state's new ban on military-style assault rifles and its requirements for fingerprinting and training of buyers before they can purchase handguns.
