Leggies Dump CCW "4-Hours" Training Rule

Those seeking permits to carry concealed weapons no longer need to show they had at least four hours of firearms training.

Attorney General J.B. Van Hollen wrote rules implementing the state’s new weapons law that set four hours as the minimum length of firearms training courses. But on Monday, his fellow Republicans on the Legislature’s Joint Committee for Review of Administrative Rules suspended the requirement for minimum hours.

Applicants must still submit a certificate indicating that they were trained, but the "four hours" is no longer operative.

By the way:

The JS's stories on this have consistently downplayed or ignored the fact that an honorable discharge (DD 214) is sufficient to prove "training."
