 DON'T LET IT HAPPEN TO YOU  Guns & Governments: Firearms Laws on the East Coast and Down Island.   This seminar, to be held Thursday, Sept. 29, 3-5;30 p.m. at Bay Bridge Marina on Chesapeake Bay, is for the coastal cruiser who has already decided to carry guns or is leaning toward that decision. The fact is anyone who cruises the East Coast between Canada and the Caribbean will pass through multiple jurisdictions whose gun laws vary wildly. What is legal in Georgia might very well result in serious legal consequences in Massachusetts or Puerto Rico. This seminar identifies the places that can cause problems for even the most conscientious armed cruiser. The Presenters are attorneys Todd Lochner and Greg Singer of Annapolis, who specialize in maritime law. They will provide attendees with a bridge card-style hand-out, displaying differences in local gun laws in an easy-to-understand format. CLICK TO REGISTER.

A routine safety inspection on New York's East River has resulted in gun charges against Maryland's biggest car dealer, according to multiple news reports.

Annapolis resident Jacob "Jack" Antwerpen, his wife and daughter were on board his 110-foot motor yacht, named YES, on the way to Boston July 27 when the Coast Guard stopped the boat. "Yes" is the slogan for Antwerpen's multiple car dealerships, as anyone who watches Baltimore-area television can tell you.

According to news reports, Antwerpen admitted he had the guns, prompting the Coast Guard detail to summon the New York Police Department's Harbor Unit. Police seized a revolver, rifle and two shotguns from what was described as a "locked vault."

The New York Post quoted a police spokesman as saying Antwerpen had an expired carry permit. Even the least serious firearms possession charge, a misdemeanor, carries a penalty of up to a year in jail. Police detained Anterpen, issued him a ticket to appear and then released him.

"He was a gentleman, and acknowledged that there were firearms on board, and acknowledged that they were his firearms," The Baltimore Sun newspaper quoted the spokesman as saying.
