On July 28th, Maryland State Police (MSP) announced that due to the ongoing COVID-19 crisis, they amended their regulations to allow Qualified Handgun Instructors (QHI) to conduct the classroom instruction portion of Handgun Qualification License (HQL) training by real time, two-way virtual platforms.
During these times of uncertainty, many of our friends, family, and acquaintances are choosing to exercise their Second Amendment rights for the first time. Unfortunately, the process to get trained for an HQL to access their right to acquire a handgun is made more cumbersome by the present public health situation and some individuals have health issues that preclude meeting with an instructor. This important change helps them navigate this barrier while protecting the health of all involved.
