Update: Maryland State Police Release Statement on Firearm Retailers During COVID-19
MSP: The Governor’s Orders Do Not Close Gun Stores

Yesterday, NSSF® sent out an alert entitled Maryland Firearm Retailers May Continue Operating During COVID-19, in which we notified you that firearm retailers are not required to close due to Gov. Larry Hogan’s recent executive order, requiring the closure of those businesses deemed “Non-Essential Businesses.”
To follow up on that information, we wanted to provide you with this statement from the Maryland State Police that was published in a WBAL article:

Maryland State Police released a statement on the issue saying: "The governor’s orders do not close gun stores. Under federal guidelines and advice from the governor’s legal counsel, gun stores are retail establishments that can remain open, provided they comply with the 10-person requirement and social distancing guidelines."
NSSF urges all members to comply with the requirements, closely follow CDC guidelines, practice social distancing, and take precautions to protect the health of their employees and customers. We will continue to monitor the situation and provide further updates as they become available.
