Recent announcement

Your Wear & Carry Permit - what's new?

On August 5th, 2019, the Maryland State Police announced changes to their Wear & Carry Permit restrictions for qualified business owners.  Prior to August 5th, most business owners in Maryland were issued permits with restrictions on them.  On their back of their permits were restrictions similar to "while conducting business as the owner of business XYZ".  After August 5th, and once those business owners with restrictions submit a modification for approval, Maryland State Police, if approved, will issue a Wear & Carry Permit without restrictions.  Going forward, business owners who submit an application, who have been vetted, have had the background check completed, and have their references checked, will also receive an unrestricted Wear & Carry Permit, if everything is approved.  

This is a monumental, but small victory for our Second Amendment rights here in Maryland.  

ICEFDT, in an effort to support Marylanders, is offering a TURNKEY solution.  Here is what we will do on your behalf:

  - We will provide the 16 hours of required training you need to submit your application.  

  - We will fill out 100% of your application.

  - We will work with you to obtain sufficient amount of evidence to support your good and substantial justification. 

  - After a brief interview, we will ORGANIZE and write the good and substantial reason for you.  

  - We will ensure your entire package is professionally organized.  

  - We will provide one original copy of your application for you to sign and submit to the Maryland State Police. 

  - We will provide another hard copy and electronic copy of your entire submission .

  - We will coordinate with you for your photos and fingerprints.  

We promise that you will have a professionally completed package ready for submission.  

However, WE DO NOT guarantee that you will get your Wear & Carry.  We will make sure you have as complete a package as possible.  We will make sure we dig deep enough to have as strong a good and substantial justification as possible.  It is UP TO THE MARYLAND STATE POLICE to decide, not ICEFDT.  

This is completely TURNKEY.  One invoice, one payment and we do most of the work.  We work with your schedule to do the training when it is convenient for you.  We have a package that you must complete within 7 days from receipt so we can finalize your application and have it ready for you to sign and submit.  It's that easy.  Yes, there is a ton of paperwork that must be completed.  It's will be time consuming.  But, we make it as easy and as streamline as possible.
