May Issue, dead?

Filed under: Uncategorized — antitango @ 10:38 am

The Court finds that Maryland‘s requirement of a ―good and substantial reason‖ for issuance of a handgun permit is insufficiently tailored to the State‘s interest in public safety and crime prevention. The law impermissibly infringes the right to keep and bear arms, guaranteed by the Second Amendment. The Court will, by separate Order of even date, GRANT Woollard‘s Motion for Summary Judgment and DENY Defendants‘ Motion for Summary Judgment.

See that right there?  That’s the circuit court saying that Maryland’s May Issue determination for permit issuance runs afoul of the US Constitution per Heller (and then some).  It’s on the very last page of the document.

The other good bit?

For all of these reasons, the Court finds that the right to bear arms is not limited to the home.

That is at the top of page 13 of the PDF document.

Update 10:48am: More here from SAF.
