Registered firearms in Howard County
I heard a report on the number of registered firearms and assault weapons in Maryland a couple of weeks ago. Maryland has one of the most tightly regulated laws for gun registration. The report gave the numbers for Maryland and I was curious how this translated to Howard County. I contacted Captain Jack McCauley at the Maryland State Police who had compiled the Statewide numbers.
He didn't have the breakdown on the number of assault weapons in Howard County. We may not have the same percentage as the entire state of Maryland but using the same ratio as the Statewide ratio there would be approximately 455 assault weapons in HoCo.
