Maryland lawmaker pushes Parishioner Protection Act

Following last month’s mass shooting at a church in Texas, a Maryland sheriff is asking state lawmakers to let parishioners bring their handguns to church. Harford County Sheriff Jeffrey Gahler is backing state Senator Wayne Norman’s Parishioner Protection Act of 2018, a proposal that would allow people with a state handgun license and the written permission of church officials to carry handguns on church property. The parishioners would not need a concealed-carry permit. The legislation comes as the Democrats who lead the Maryland General assembly have proposed tightening the state’s gun laws.
