    Hi all,
    This is the first time I saw the video entitled "Commander of Gun Licensing Division...." WOW! Here is someone who gets why we have MSI! This man is fantastic. Why won't the MSP, Attorney General, and the Legislature listen? It appears to be very political with MSI making small advances and holding the line against 2A setbacks.
    I have not been very active because of my wife's Parkinson,s Disease and all her recent falls. But, despite all of this, I am now testing for the AGI Glocksmithing Exam and will apply for an in home FFL. That is another issue. Have to have Owen Brown Approval and Howard County Approval. So, I have to get gunsmithing work from firearms dealers with retail space. At 75 years old, a veteran, and partially disabled, it gives me new reasons and hope to do what I can to help MSI.

    Hi all -

    I'm a new MSI member, recently retired Marine. Last summer just after I retired, I applied for a wear and carry permit with a justification similar to Tandem12's including immediate colleagues on the ISIS hit list (at least one of which was consequently given a MD Wear and Carry permit), but mine was denied for the usual "that's not a Good and Substantial Reason" reason. I believe I have even more of a reason than some, because the combination of the OPM breaches and my particular duties made me very visible (a google search of my name and rank turns up lots of videos and publications) and my public licences have made my home address accessible (despite my efforts to keep this information private).

    I did not appeal at the time because I had no additional justification. Maybe I should've?

    What can we do? As I'm sure all on this forum agree, it's ridiculous for any of us to have to wait for ourselves or our families to be threatened or hurt to be legally allowed to be prepared to defend ourselves.

    I would encourage you to reapply and go all the way through the appeal process.

    Don't give up. The casual review is a farce in my opinion because the reviewer will simply be the supervisor of the person who decided to deny your request. They have absolutely no criteria for how or why to deny a request. Request a hearing.

    Wear and Carry Permit lawsuit

    Maryland Shall Issue (MSI) applauds the National Rifle Association’s (NRA) announcement of its support of a new challenge against the State of Maryland's unfair and discriminatory wear and carry permit system in federal district court.  The case name is Malpasso v. Pallozzi, No. 18-1064 (D. MD).  The Maryland State Rifle and Pistol Association, which is the NRA's Maryland state organization, is also a named plaintiff. The lawsuit candidly acknowledges that the relief sought "is contrary to Woollard v. Gallagher, 712 F.3d 865 (4th Cir. 2013), but alleges that the Fourth Circuit's decision in Woollard was "wrongly decided" for the "reasons explained in Wrenn v. District of Columbia, 864 F.3d 650 (D.C. Cir. 2017), and that the purpose of the suit is "to seek to have Woollard overturned."  The suit is thus similar to complaints filed by the same counsel in New York (New York State Rifle and Pistol Association, Inc. v. Beach, No. 18-134 (N.D.N.Y.)), and in New Jersey (Rogers v. Grewal, No. 18-1544 (D.N.J.)) in which existing adverse Second Circuit and Third Circuit precedent is challenged in the same way. These suits all take advantage of the "circuit split" created by the D.C. Circuit's decision in Wrenn. The resolution of such circuit splits is often the reason that cases are reviewed in the Supreme Court.

    Medical Marijuana and Guns

    With the recent changes in Maryland law concerning medical marijuana, see MD Code, Health - General, § 13-3304 et seq., and the push to legalize the use of marijuana in Maryland, a recurring issue is how such marijuana use would affect your Second Amendment rights.  The short answer is that it may well act to abrogate those rights by (1) barring a FFL from selling a firearm to such a user and (2), by making such a user a prohibited person under federal law.
