Lawmakers in Maryland are attempting to close what has been referred to as a gun-law ‘loophole.’

At issue is the current ‘8th day release‘ in which potential gun owners in the state are allowed to proceed with a firearms transfer if the state police have taken more than seven days to process a required background check.

A Democrat-backed bill in the state House would eliminate the provision for the release, holding up the transfer until the check is completed.

“This loophole has been around for many years, and the fact that almost no one is talking about it is alarming,” says Del. Jon S. Cardin (D-D11), the bill’s sponsor.

“It presents a grave danger to Maryland families. Until this loophole is closed, we will continue to see ineligible individuals obtain handguns,” he continued.
