Baltimore Decoded

Accessible Law for All People

Weapons

This is Subtitle 59 of the Baltimore City Code, titled “Weapons.” It is part of Article 19, titled “Police Ordinances.” It contains 32 laws.

Editor's Note: The following provisions formerly appeared as §58C, as enacted by Ord. 89-375 and extended by Ord. 90-561A. Ord. 92-131 later amended §58C to add provisions for a curfew; that Ordinance, however, had a “sunset” date of September 30, 1993. This recodification, therefore, is based on §58C as it existed before Ord. 92-131 temporarily modified it.
