General Assembly session comes to a close – SB736 passed to repeal the collection of fired shell casings

The Maryland General Assembly Session passed SB736 that repeals the requirement for (1) handgun manufacturers to provide to handgun dealers shell casings of projectiles discharged from handguns and other specified additional information; (2) handgun dealers to forward shell casings and other specified information to the Department of State Police (DSP) Crime Laboratory; and (3) DSP to enter specified information in a relevant database.

The bill also authorizes DSP to properly and lawfully dispose of any shell casings that are currently being held in storage because they were received from a dealer under the current law requirement that is repealed by the bill. The bill also expresses the intent of the General Assembly that the DSP positions that were associated with the duties under the current law requirement not be eliminated as a result of the repeal.
