    Your charge paper should indicate the maximums that you face. Generally speaking in Maryland wearing, carrying, or transporting a firearm in a vehicle carries three years. If a person were prohibited for a reason, such as having previously been convicted of a felony, then the maximums might be higher, and there might be mandatory minimums.
