ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Gun control laws will take effect in Maryland on Sunday.

The laws were approved in response to a U.S. Supreme Court ruling that ended a requirement to demonstrate a particular need for a license to carry a concealed gun in public. But they are being challenged in federal court. Meanwhile, the state’s statute of limitations for when civil lawsuits for child sexual abuse can be filed against institutions is set to end, and lawsuits are expected to be filed soon.

Officials with the Archdiocese of Baltimore have been weighing filing for bankruptcy protection.
