Maryland gun law

There Goes That Constitution Again!

Despite the best efforts of Progressives, the United States Constitution keeps rearing its ugly head. On Monday, U.S. District Judge Benson Everett Legg declared Maryland’s draconian handgun permitting process unconstitutional. Under Maryland law, a “permit to carry” requires the applicant to prove he or she has “good and substantial reason” for carrying said firearm and that its possession is “necessary as a reasonable precaution against apprehended danger.” Needless to say, the law’s final arbiter of “necessary,” “reasonable” and the all-important “apprehended danger” falls to the Secretary of State Police Handgun Permit Review Board.
