John Connolly: Maryland's Historical Firearms Restrictions and What They Mean After Heller, McDonald, and Bruen
Michael Ramsey

John Connolly (independent) has posted Maryland's Historical Firearms Restrictions and What They Mean After Heller, McDonald, and Bruen (38 pages) on SSRN.  Here is the abstract:

Historical state laws regulating firearms have become relevant to modern firearms legislation after the Supreme Court’s decisions in Heller, McDonald, and Bruen. This article tries to catalog and analyze all historical firearms laws in one of the original 13 states, Maryland, and considers how those laws might affect modern legislative efforts to regulate firearms.
