Membership rates are extremely affordable - a General Membership costs less than a box of ammo. 100% of your dues go directly to advocacy! In return for your membership and support of MSI, Student, General, Sustaining, and Executive members receive these benefits:
Assistance with applying for a Maryland Wear and Carry Permit
Invitations to quarterly Membership Meetings and other MSI events
Regular updates and dispatches on developments affecting gun owners in Maryland
Members in good standing for two years become eligible to run for leadership and vote in MSI elections
Those generously willing to become Life Members are entitled to the same benefits as the other levels but will also receive a special engraved metal MSI Membership card and are able to vote in MSI elections without needing to be a member for two years.
Corporate Members gain all of the same benefits as General, Sustaining, and Executive Memberships, but also gain access to their own business directory page on MSI's website.
Thank you for your support of Maryland Shall Issue! You make our work possible.

Maryland Shall Issue Inc et al. v. Anne Arundel County, MD - Bill 108-21
On April 11, Maryland Shall Issue, along with four firearms and ammunition dealers, Field Traders, Cindy's Hot Shots, Pasadena Arms, and Worth-A-Shot, filed a suit in federal district court against Anne Arundel County, MD challenging Bill 108-21, an ordinance that mandates that sellers of firearms or ammunition within the county distribute county-prepared or sponsored literature with each sale and display the materials in their establishments. The complaint alleges that the ordinance is unconstitutional under the First Amendment to the United States Constitution.
