“If you’re in a position to try and take the gunman down, to take the gunman out, it’s the best option for saving lives before police can get there,” she tells Cooper.

Shame that more people aren't allowed to carry a firearm to be able to do exactly this!

Sounds good on TV, but she knows it would never happen in her town.

Kind of puts her between a rock and hard place nevertheless. Self-inflicted wound or the beginning of a major change in mindset - time will tell. Many permit applicants will be quoting her "infamous" words.

I figured self-inflicted. She was probably kicking herself afterwards.

I wonder how this would play out if someone used this as their G&S for a DC carry permit?

Good idea, Dan. A permit denial with that as a reason would surely make news. It would highlight the hypocrisy. I may have to roll the dice :)

The interesting thing about non-terrorist shooters is all they need to see is an armed response and they typically shoot themselves. The CA terrorists MIGHT have stood their ground against an armed victim like they did with the police, but I think they would have been so shocked at an armed response from one of the attendees at the party that they'd have bolted. They did leave the scene because of the fire alarm going off, so I have to believe an armed response would have had some impact.

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.
